Vintage/Antique Finds & Pinterest

By Cozy.Cottage.Cute. on Aug 06, 2012
In my last post I mentioned that the photos I snapped of some vintage items on our road trip all reminded me of pictures that I've seen and/or pinned lately on Pinterest.


Pinterest = My One True Love. (Sorry, Alex.)

So here we go. (Click on the collages to see the Pinterest pictures in greater detail.)

Isn't it funny that I can't for the life of me remember any facts or important information (I seriously have the worst long-term memery ever) but I can remember in a split second that I saw a picture of a collection of bells hanging from strings or a chippy green/wood cabinet with doors on Pinterest weeks or even months ago.

I guess the point of this post is that if you see a cottage-y photo you love on Pinterest or on a blog, it can be fairly easy to replicate the look. All you have to do is drag your hubby and baby on a shopping road trip and dig through some quirky little shops.

Hee hee!


P.S. All images were found on Pinterest and I'm working on compiling an original source list. :)

P.S.S. I have no idea if any of the above items are vintage or antiques but hey, it sounds good so what the hey. ;)
