farmhouse wall

As an antiques and vintage dealer, I am constantly moving things in and out of my house and while things are here, I have to find a place for them.







In my current small space, it means finding a shelf here or a wall there and creating a vignette.


This wall in my bathroom is perfect for display. It held pretty floral prints in the past, but those sold and so now I have displayed some of my newest farmhouse finds. 
















An old enamel baby bathtub.


a wonderful vintage wooden step ladder.


an oxen yoke. I was thinking this might be converted into a pot hanger.


and this wonderful wall pocket my daughter made for me.



I will be adding the first three items to the shop. The wall pocket will of course be staying with me.

  4. Very nice and such an "in" look right now. What what old-time farmers' wives would think!

  5. How nice! Unfortunately, within the past 10 years I've thrown out the enameled baby tub and the short old step ladder. I'll probably become a hoarder now, due to having a new appreciation of the cool things you find. :-) Love that oxen yoke. That would never make its way to a store, if it were in my house. lol

  6. Good finds, Laura. Your “blank canvas” corner is a thing of beauty and envy. The yoke may also be used to hold fireplace tools over the wood box.

  9. That wall pocket is so cute! I love it! i think you need to use that for your button or something. :D Of course I love the bottles in your heading and button.....I was thinking about painting them, actually.

    I hope you're having a great week. Things are definitely looking up around here!

  17. I love the enamel bathtub. Your display is really nice and I guess selling things gets you creative to always have a new display.

  18. Great farm house feel to your vignette. Don't you wonder how many babies had baths in that tub? Love your little wooden ladder. I have one similar to that, only taller, down in the basement. It was here when we moved into the house. So there is no telling how old it is. I asked my husband to bring it upstairs for me to use for displaying my quilts. He looked at me like I was crazy and asked what I was going to do about all of the paint spots on it. I told him that is part of what made it look good. Then he asked me what he was supposed to do when he needed a ladder. I suggested we buy a metal ladder. Well, I still have the similar ladder in the basement.
