party hopping...

Just above my thoughtful spot in my cozy corner of my craft room (which I want to re-name) sits one of my new vintage finds that has given me a lot of inspiration lately...
I have been admiring the industrial look lately and love all the unique ways these pieces can fit into anyone's home...
I have already added "industrial" to my treasure hunting list for my nest and my booth and recently found this old drawer with metal dividers...
Change does not come easy for me, nor do I make quick decisions.  I intended this piece for my booth as I did not think it would fit in my home.  My nest is shabbily feathered, with a few french touches here and there.  I love dreamy, vintage whites and I am wandering toward the farmhouse look (have you seen Anne's new home!) where I know any industrial piece would fit perfectly.  I sometimes wonder if all the styles I love will blend together.  As a fan of Kim's I remind myself to fill my home with things I love that make me happy.  Isn't that what it's all about?!  So I figured I would start slipping industrial in small with this drawer...
I have a wonderful collection of old flower frogs ~ the drawer provides a perfect display for some of them...
My flower frog display and I are party hopping today from Common Ground where Debra is hosting Vintage Inspiration Friday to Margo's Junkin Journal where she is hosting her Industrial Chic party!  Thank you ladies for hosting!  Before you go party hopping make sure you have entered my giveaway (click on the button on the sidebar to enter) which ends 10~20~10!  Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!!!

I love your new addition!

I love so many different styles...I've never been able to pin myself down to one thing...my house is definitely a jumble of every style I love...and I really think that's okay! You're friend is right--fill your home with the things that make YOU happy! This piece would definitely make me happy!

Hope you have a beautiful day!

Fabulous that you are using that lovely old drawer as a display shelf. I think when you buy what you love, no matter what era it is from, it will always fit into your surroundings. I love an eclectic look to anything matchy-frou-frou. Your thoughtful spot is so pretty. And your giveaway fabulous! I told you our anniversary is on the 20th, but I'll be spending the evening at the first meeting of the Yarn and Fiber group that I am joining. My husband said he is a-o-k with that. Yea! Have a great weekend. :) Tammy

I love both the drawer and the frogs! I would love to find more frogs. They are good for so much more then flowers. The drawer would be great for me my shells.

Hi-I'm a new follower, and I love this drawer. I am a big fan of boxes, drawers, cubbies, etc. and think they fit into any decor. I'm also a collector of flower frogs. I showed my latest ones a couple of posts ago.

I love your flower frogs!! I hope this doesn't post twice, blogger was having issues when I first commented. Lovely display.

I have found that if you love something, you can make it fit, blend in and tell a story about who you are.
The drawer looks great and besides flower frogs, you can put in little things that reflect the seasons.
Just have fun!

Olivia said...

Hello! I think if you love it, it can mix! The drawer is way cool if worse comes to worse it would be really neat painted white, I know I am still stuck there.
Hugs,
Olivia

I love those kind of drawers..the metal dividers just give it a little extra oomph. I love you style - even as it changes a bit and allows new things in - it still remains "your" style.

That is really a wonderful drawer! I wonder what it was used for...now it works perfectly for your fun collection of flower frogs! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Time Worn Style said...

Love the drawer, yum! I know exactly what you mean about mixing styles, but I think we find our own style within it dont you think?

Great find, Sandi! I, too, am leaning toward the "industrial" lately, too. Ever so slowly, treasures like your drawer are creeping into my "wanna-be-French-farmhouse". LUV all of your flower frogs, girlie! I've displayed some b/w photos in the ones I've picked up at flea markets, and am obsessed with how French they now look. :) Nice job!!!!

You're going to rename your craft room? That sounds intriguing. I like the way that you are slowly adding things that you enjoy to your home. What a great find that drawer was and the perfect way for you to display your collection of flower frogs.

Beach Vintage said...

I love all your beautiful things. Have a great weekend.

Prior said...

I think they go swell together and love your flower frogs. Lezlee

Janet said...

Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments! I would sure love to find some of those flower frogs ... they look so cute in the drawer, too!

Vickie said...

I love this piece - it's so functional. I always like to organize and have little spots to put special things. I love flower frogs, too, especially cuz my friends don't know what they are and it makes me sound very knowledgeable about antiques (which I'm not!) Great find!
