Vignettes To Inspire... Part I

Old Green Shutters Antiques (

what a charming find this shop was!  I was needing three things that day I

happened upon it.  One, a diversion from stress which for me is satisfied with

a road trip.  Two, inspiration.  Seeing someone else's creativity stirs up your

own.  And three, another source for vintage finds.  It was all wrapped into

one when I stepped across the threshold of this store!  And you know what?

I am going to let the photos speak for me and perhaps... just maybe....

you might find some inspiration, too!

That large roll of tickets came home with me!
Why not use mint green stacked books to add holiday color?
Just love the creativity of this display... it's always the simple ideas that make the biggest impact

Vintage tree toppers resting in old bottles.. group several together and you have a lovely display
Pottery bowls filled with gold!  And I love how there is one ball hanging from a long hanger!


  1. Cool store. I stacked red books, but I've got some green ones too. :)

    1. This weekend they are having a vintage jewelry show... now that sounds like fun, too! Yes, I love discovering new places all the time. Thank heavens I can combine that passion with antiquing!! Enjoy your weekend and have some fun!!!

  2. Looks like a store I would love! The tickets are a great find!

  3. So beautiful...I wish they would come into our homes and decorate!!!!!

  4. As I'm staring at the Christmas boxes, still waiting for me to unpack them, I couldn't agree more!! LOL Darn shoulder went out while working on a Christmas ornament for someone.... great timing, right??!! Give it one more day of healing and I'll be back in business!!

  5. oh lots of loveliness right there in those pictures
