Plain & Simple Vignette...


Beginning to do some "Vignette/Staging" 
As we prepare to put "Our Home" 
On-the-Market,  -Sometime Late Spring!!!
Historic Cedarburg - Wisconsin

 
OMG!!! - **Decision Over-Load**
What do I keep???   What do I sell???
It's a REALLY HARD CALL ~ 
Since we have No Where to Go "just-yet"...

What I've decided to do is follow a few
 self-imposed guide lines!
*One-Of-A-Kind
*NATURALLY ChiPPy, Time~Worn Patina...
*Rare - To Less Commonly Seen...
*FaB Form/Lines...
*Do I REALLY LoVe It...
*Consider it's function...
*What are the chances of me finding something similar...

ALL OF THE ITEMS ABOVE 
MEET THE *Keeper Requirements*



What I LoVe about ViNtaGe, 
is that each piece tells a story...  
LoVe.... LoVe.... LoVe...
This Vintage Window/Door Frame!!!
JuSt FaB SMALLER SIZE!!! 
Hint of "old hardware" tells me that it was perhaps on a cupboard
GREAT FORM!!!
Naturally Time~Worn ChiPPy WHiTe!!!
Netted this FaB Piece at the Allegan Flea, in Michigan,
a few years back...  



I am NOT a big fan of fake/silk flowers...
I prefer naturally dried flowers, pods, herbs
 - from the garden/prairie...
- HOWEVER - 
These AmAziNg Paper-Like Flowers are an exception!!! 
A sweet... soft... hint of adornment for the Ice Cream Bucket!
Netted many... many... years ago in a small shop
