reclaimed vintage

In green & growing, thrifting + vintage on 12/16/2009 at 12:53 pm

I love the challenge that vintage thrifting invariably presents, stretching my imagination and coaxing me to color outside the lines. I nearly passed this by. I certainly did not set out on my morning jaunt in search of a rusted old flour sifter. The mesh screen in the bottom provides adequate drainage.  A small plate placed underneath catches the run-off. 

Thank you all for your kind emails and comments about the holiday tea tree and the tutorial collection. One of my favorite things about this space is having you in it. Happy Wednesday.

We awoke to find their tiny necks stretched just high enough to peer at one another, as if on tiptoe.  And I’m quite certain that if we were quiet, we could hear them whisper their “good morning” greetings as the sun warms the sill and the world wakes up. This is a new adventure for us. If it strikes your fancy, you’ll find a helping hand here .

…I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there and I am prepared to expect wonders.

 –   Henry David Thoreau

The morning routine now includes checking our pot of cat grass to see how much higher those little shoots have climbed. Teachable moments, low maintenance, and springtime by the kitchen sink. I’m liking it.
