Frosted pine cones fill a vintage handcrafted grain scoop in the screened porch is so charming on a primitive table next to a living evergreen potted in a galvanized metal bucket.
In the bath hanging above the porcelain tub is a primitive scale from a former grocery store for weighing fruits and vegetables. The scale has a new purpose holding mercury glass and clear glass balls. The scale is paired with a salvaged wooden screen hung on the wall for added texture and interest.
At the end of a hallway family photos in simple floating frames arranged above a vintage wooden stool with a plant potted in a vintage tin kitchen pot adds a focal point at the end of the hall. The photos are arranged outside Laurie's office so that she is greeted and encouraged by her great grandparents and other family members as she enters the office to begin her workday.
Another primitive stool serves as another plant stand for a pine tree with tiny decorations adorning the branches in the bedroom which casts a mirror image in shadow on the wall from the afternoon sun streaming through the windows.
This galvanized metal wreath looks great throughout the year hanging in the guest bath. Tinsel and glass ornament containing a tiny woven bird in copper sitting on a twig branch inside a clear glass ball by Julie Pishny looks so sweet hanging from the wreath.
Vintage McCoy pottery deer surrounded by tinsel pairs so well with vintage crochet doily, vintage colander filled with mercury glass balls on a round table in the living room.
Sunlight streaming through South windows makes the nook off the kitchen so inviting at any time of day. The perfect place to sip a cup of tea and watch the birds visiting the garden just outside the windows.
Angel cookie cutters paired with Laurie's collection of ironstone glassware tucked into a china cabinet. Another creative way to enjoy personal collections throughout the year. Laurie has been collecting angels for years receiving them from family, friends, co-workers, and picking up one of a kind, handcrafted angels at fairs and in her travels.
An array of vintage glass jars filled with local grains from the region and flower seeds from her garden in an assortment of sizes and shapes fill another shelf just above the angels and ironstone on the shelf below.
Vintage ironstone vessels hold a tiny frazier fir tree, mercury glass ornaments, and a few pine branches float on shelves of white.
Tinsel trees and one tiny reindeer on the kitchen counter reflect the icy days of Winter. Vintage coffee jars hold coffee and sugar in the background.
Vintage white lard can holds amaryllis, pine cones and tiny bird's nests on the island counter top. A tiny potted rosemary plant in terra cotta complete the arrangement.
