Don't you just love the rustiness? Sigh. :o)
Then there was the old Pepper Mill - she offered that to me also. Of course, I said yes!
I think the red paint had been refreshed at one time but I love its patina! The old wood handle looks like a critter chewed on it. ha.
I had so much fun staging the kitchen with these two items.
First, the scale. I added a blue earthenware bowl that had been my mom's:
Such a sweet, little bowl...
My white chicken pitcher with the polka dots had to get in on the action:
I love the contrast of the white, shiny glaze with the old rusty scale.
I set the pepper mill next to the stove:
I was also baking a loaf of French bread for lunch. I placed it in an old wooden bowl I got from my mother-in-law to cool.
Yum, yum...I made a yummy sub sandwich.
Lots of fresh flavors and so easy to make! But I digress...
I moved my coffee cup lamp ( you can find how we made it here ) to the end of the bar.
I love having old family treasures to display and mix in with the new. They add so much character to a space.
What old family treasures do you have and use?
Have a fantastic week!
