A FEW VINTAGE ADDITIONS TO MY HOME

You never know what you may find when you go searching in places you have not been in a long time.
I found this fantastic vintage wood tray in the cupboards underneath our bar.  Guess we don't sit at the bar much....
I was tickled to find it there, I had forgotten about it of course.
(My forgetfulness is due to being a grandparent now, at least this is what I am telling people.)

I do believe this is a sticker/transfer of some kind.
The camera gets the glare so it is sort of light, sorry.
I am using this on our large ottoman.
I have discovered a new use for one of my ball jars,
 everyone knows I love ball/canning jars.
This one is a big one, 10 inches tall.
I am storing my coffee beans in here, I do love the look and color of coffee beans.
These are not new to my home but not sure if I have blogged about them before.
My sterling silver measuring spoons I purchased in New York City.

Here is a vintage ember glass bottle with a small string of white lights inside.
This is beautiful lit up at night.

A few new items added makes a room feel refreshed.
Thanks for stopping by.

I'm a grandma too, but I started blaming my forgetfulness on being a parent many moons ago! :)

What a wonderful surprise to find hidden in your own home!
I love those old jars too and have a big one just like it!

What a super vintage tray! I love the old decal with the bird on it. It will cheer things up no matter where you use it. Have a nice weekend!
