Not Just “For the Birds”

Hey my friends!
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
Another quick trip to Canton Trade Days last weekend has kept 
Mr. Buckets of Burlap busy with projects.
He is always so sweet about hanging old, rusty items on our walls.
I’ve seen nesting boxes used as clever decor in magazines.
I’ve seen it used as a display at Laurie Anna’s Shoppe in Canton.
So, I thought maybe I could pull it off.
It’s now hanging in our dining room,
filled with some of my favorite things…
ironstone, mercury glass, ball jars, burlap and vintage pots.

I found the little zinc placecards, white napkins, and bottle carrier
at Laurie Anna’s.  She had a wonderful sale 🙂
This little old wooden box is from my husband’s uncle,
he’s figured out I like vintage things, too 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone,
I hope your day is filled with the ones you love!
Thanks so much for stopping in to visit.
I really appreciate you following this little blog of mine 🙂
I’m joining 
I also wanted to send out a huge THANK YOU to my precious friend Amy,
at All Things Home, for giving me The Stylish Blogger Award!
She is a an angel and you need to check out her delightful blog.

    Sorry about the above post. sent before I was ready. Now… will try again. I love the nesting box and how you decorated it. But I am in love with the place card holders. They are so cute. I am trying to make a transition from the darker prim decorating to a lighter vintage style. Your blog is such an inspiration.

  42. Becky, me again, leaving you another comment. If you have a barn sale I would so love to come to it, so if this happens please let me know. I think barn sales are really catching on in Texas and this is a dream of mine too to eventually have one and invite the best girls to come and sell (wanna come be a vendor!), wouldn't that be fun!

    Yum! I need to remember to stop by here more often! I adore your sweet nesting box hanging on your wall. Every time I go to a flea market, I am on the lookout for nesting boxes to hang in my home. (I haven't found any yet without way too many reminders of the chickens left in them.) Love your sweet dining room! I have a farm pantry, it would look perfectly adjoining your dining room!

  55. I am so in awe of your blog. It is so peaceful and beautiful. The pictures are stunning. Thank you so much!
