Decorating for Spring w/ Fun, Thrifty & Vintage Finds!


 "It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage was once brand new."

~Tony Visconti~


I am so looking forward to spring this year and getting out to some fun flea markets over the next few months!  If you follow me on Instagram, I shared in my stories some fun thrifty finds I found while shopping in Maine a couple of weeks ago.  So I thought I would share some of them with you here today.




This is a vintage clock face that I found and hung on the glass door of my vintage hutch in the dining room.









A vintage shutter that I painted a very pale pink and added vintage family photos along with a couple of framed pictures for more texture.





 While I was looking thru the old photos, I came across this menu that a friend sent to me a few years ago.  This is a menu from my grandfather's lobster pound in Maine from back in the 1940's sometime.  My mother typed the inserted menu.  Such a treasured find!





 I secured the vintage photos and menus with these vintage clothes pins that I found at an antique center.





Decorating the dining room hutch with thrift shop finds.





A vintage fan, white candle w/ a glass dome, vintage scale and books all in an old wooden hutch!  Oh and some Daffodils for spring...











I found this old wooden shutter that I just luv, and hung it next to my vintage dining room hutch!   I added a Bermuda bag with Faux hydrangeas along with a small chalkboard for a fun spring touch...





All ready for spring and Easter!










Pin It!

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
