Hey my friends!
I have so much to tell you :)
First of all, I changed around our dining room. Are you surprised?
Me either. If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while, you probably know I get bored if I leave things alone for too long :)
So, I started by rearranging the mantel for a fresh new look, and added some tulips for Valentine’s Day :) You may notice the gray armoire is now here in the dining room. Yes, that’s because we got a new flat screen tv in our den. Now I store dishes and
lots of other junk other stuff inside. Do you like it gray? I think I do…maybe we should discuss it further at a later time.
I used old bed springs around the vintage bottles on the mantel.
The next change I made was moving this cabinet hutch to our buffet. I also replaced the galvanized tub with my vintage wooden chicken crate.
And remember I told you I was headed to Canton this past weekend? Well, we had so much fun, and the weather was beautiful! I wanted to show you a few new treasures I found…
This galvanized tray came from “Old Friends”, a vendor named Cindy, located at booth #6219 in Pavillion 6000. She had some really great vintage farmhouse stuff. Go see Cindy when you’re in Canton!
For a few Valentine’s crafts, I added music sheet heart cut-outs to the tray and ice cream bucket along with heart placemats.
Of course we visited Laurie Anna's Vintage Home, where I found a new grainsack.
I tried something new with my grainsacks. Each one is rolled and placed in my old wooden crate from Canton. You see that rusty metal washer stand? We found that out on Mr. Buckets Aunt’s farm. Yep, just found it out in the woods.
And this vintage wooden toolbox came from Cindy at “Old Friends”, too.
The galvanized metal house lanterns came from Laurie Anna's. She will have her whole shoppe transformed for Spring next month! Can’t wait!
And Mr. Buckets moved our big, heavy scale over to this corner.
See that cool old rusty lantern? Came from Cindy… she had really cool stuff.
Once again, when I saw the tulips in the store, I felt like dressing a Valentine’s table. Usually it’s one of my least favorite holidays…but this year I feel Spring in the air! And I’m excited to add a little red & pink.
Well thanks for hanging in there for so many photos!
And let me close by saying I’d like to invite all of you who have online shops or businesses to please consider becoming a sponsor/advertiser here on Buckets of Burlap. I’d love to partner with you! Please send me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in discussing details about this new adventure I’m beginning…
Thanks from the bottom of my HEART!
And Happy Valentine’s Day
