Vintage Art

This week, Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 27 – Vintage, asks us to take or choose a photo that shows something vintage. Maybe it’s something that once belonged to your Grandparents that you have on display, or maybe it’s an item that is locked away in the back of a cupboard? Do you have any vintage clothes you can show off or maybe a vintage toy that is still in its original pristine box?

Vintage frame and doily

Last week, on my search for locally grown plants for my garden here in Colorado, my friend, Chelley and I found an amazing plant store that sold antiques. We had so much fun picking out flowers. We both stumbled onto some great finds. I love this antique gold frame. The doily is my own creation. I think it works because it is a vintage craft.

Turquoise wrought iron vintage corner shelf

I also found this wrought iron corner rack that is a vintage piece. My intent is to place a plant on the shelf with long trailing vines. I think it makes my back garden look quaint. Eventually, there will be fairy houses under this shelf.

Thanks so much for stopping by to enjoy my take on “vintage!”

  1. Great vintage, Colleen! The doily is the real touch! I have one on my dining room table that was made by an old lady who was selling them at vista point in Prague. We ran across her during our last visit and I had to buy it. Her work was exceptional.

    • Thank you for your kind comments, Noelle. I love making these doilies. My mother and grandmother made them, too. I so wanted to be like them. It has always been an honor to me to be able to crochet with thread. There are true works of art. I especially love the counting portion. It suits my orderly brain. LOL! I bet your doily is gorgeous. Funny, my family is from Russia. I think crocheting with thread provided cheap decorations. Thanks again for stopping by! <3

  2. Both lovely takes, Colleen!

  3. Great choice, Colleen. Hugs.

  4. Looking forward to seeing the fairy house under that vintage plant stand, Colleen. Do you have an idea on how old the stand is or any of its history?

  5. These are lovely, Colleen! Cher xo
