Estate Finds~Antique Wedding Photos

Today I thought I would share with you all my estate sale finds for this past weekend. A stack of suitcases, that look great stacked as a side table in my bedroom next to my favorite
dress form. Just what this corner needed, it was a little boring to me before. Love it now.
This is something I don't find all the time. from the estate of a 90-year old lady. This house was
packed with great finds, this was one of my favorites, 5 large antique black & white wedding
photos!! I LOVE these...They are gorgeous, and look awesome with all my vintage cake toppers!!
Some close-ups, love the lace veil and the gorgeous flowers! What it must have been like in those days, very romantic!!

I hope you have enjoyed the photos. I love to collect old black & whites! Hope you all have a wonderful day....Happy Junkin!!

~Vintage Vanity~

  • Good Morning! Today I want to get your opinion on what color I should paint my master bathroom, adjacent to the master bedroom. I can't decide if I want a cottage white color, a very light light aqua, a neutral coffee tan, and antique grey color.... I would love to get your input...I am all ears!! Everything in this room is white, glass, silver or black! I want something that
    will compliment the decor! Right now the walls are a pale yellow, the same old
  • boring yellow since 1998!!
Recently I purchased this wonderful burlap shower curtain on Etsy! I just LOVE it!!

Inside this huge wall cabinet I have all my vintage perfume bottles, antique brushes, old glass jars with buttons, lace, antique mirrors, etc..I love anything vintage that is silver or glass with some ornate in design. I am loving the clean simple look of no color!

Another fun find were these great old clocks found at Scott's antique market in
Atlanta! Love how they look on an old silver platter! So tell me, what color
would you think? I would really like an antique grey color.....

~Bedroom Makeover~Recent Finds!!

Hello Everyone...I know it has been a while since my last post. I just can't blog as much as I would love too! So today I thought that I would share with you what I have been working on!
My bedroom makeover...No more pink pillows, floral bedspread, pink vintage accessories, fake flowers, so no more shabby chic pink! I have always loved more of an antique french Victorian look anyway. There are so many inspiring blogs out there to encourage you to find your style!
Well, I have found mine. I love most things Victorian and ornate in design. Silver trays, ornate
antique frames, silver trophy's, antique garden treasures, rhinestone jewelry, and dress forms!
Paris trophy on a sliver tray, Thinking of replacing these purple flowers with
some pretty white roses...just thinking...

No more pink floral hats hanging over my headboard.
This antique crocheted tablecloth looks much prettier!!

Just one of my favorite recent finds on is this wonderful
burlap pillow cover...Love It!!

Out with all the pastel McCoy pottery, Kept just the white pieces,
I brought in all my vintage cake toppers from my dining room,
I love how they look behind glass doors! Pretty!
Some recent finds...a vintage style crown for my favorite dress form, and
a wonderful old rusty iron plant stand, I just added tea-stained roses!
Here are some before pictures from the past year....
I am so loving the new look....out with the old and in with the new!! No more hats, just about sold them all, just a few more to
list on eBay. Let me know if you collect them. I am selling
most of them for only 20.00-25.00 each. They are really pretty!
I hope you all have enjoyed this mini makeover...I am
in the process of redoing the master bathroom. Stay tuned...
Wishing you all a wonderful new year!! Thanks for stopping by!!
