I've shared my "paint clutter solution" before but since the prompt for #myhousethismonth day 2 is colour crush, I figured I'd share it once again! I love color and seem to paint...a lot! We had a ridiculously large pile of half empty paint cans in our basement. I could never find the exact shade I was looking for. Something needed to be done when a can opened and paint poured onto the floor! The solution was to pour the remaining portion of the paint into canning jars and put them in a cabinet I found at #brimfieldantiqueshow . Now I can always find the color I'm looking for!
It’s OPEN CALL at #Happy 😊Hoarder and I’m taking creative license with my theme choices—let’s call this a TYPE A/ON THE ROAD hybrid! TYPE A because this is an antique Ford Model A type steering wheel and, if I could find the rest of the car, I would be cruising in it ON THE ROAD immediately😊🙌🏻! As a kid I wasn’t as intrigued with old stuff as I am now—with one exception. I wanted an old car soooooo badly! I LOVE ❤️old cars! Tiny ones or big ones I love OLD CARS🚗🚙🚗🚙! Old cars are works of art—the shiny chrome details of the curvy 1950s styles, the beautiful wood details that existed in all early cars—wooden dashboards and steering wheels! Swipe left and look at the joinery—amazing! How could I resist this steering wheel? Look how well it plays with other old things in this vignette! I like circles—it’s a circle! Perfect!
Thankfully there are many old cars on Cape Cod with lots of shows and events to check them out. There is even an old Model T that drives by our house often in the summer in the most perfect shade of aubergine! I imagine it sitting in my driveway—looking right at home next to This Old Cape House and This Old Cape Barn! Don’t you think so?!! It’s OPEN CALL this week—lots of choices to share your collections! You have until midnight tonight PST to share your story with the rest of us at #Happy 😊Hoarder. Be sure to tag your Happy Hosts!
I met such a wonderful fellow vintage lover tonight at the #newenglandshakeup . Funny story, i recognized her stunning vintage blouse right away. I had been eying it in the @findgypsy booth at the #brimfieldantiqueshow . I don't think red is my color but woah it looks ravishing on @meghanmaraschino !!! This blouse is in the perfect hands. 🎊 ❤️
