My Salvage Style

Lilacs in bent bucket 6-18-19

 

I have a great love for old things because they bring so much life

and interest to a home.

With dents and all!

Old things have a history and a story to tell.

I like to think about the hands that have touched the object,

where it was and how it was used in its past life.

I especially love using salvage finds to decorate with.

A worn piece of galvanized metal,

or repurposed and vintage items like old rusty buckets.

To me this is totally charming and adds warmth to a room.

Think Outside the Box

On a treasure hunting trip, I picked up this vintage bucket

with a great rustic patina –

with all its metal goodness and sweet wire and wooden handle.

When I see things that catch my eye,

I immediately think, “How can I use it in my home?”

Well, with flowers of course!

Because I didn’t get enough of my lilacs when they were in their prime,

I couldn’t resist cutting more as they begin to fade

and go out of season-pairing them with my salvaged treasure.

Regardless of their fading, rustic appearance they still smell amazing!

What do you think of the mingling of fading lilacs and a chippy bucket?

Chippy bucket, fading lilacs, and flickering candles…

to me, pretty much a total win!

Anyone else love flickering candles?

Candles are always a good idea.

My salvage style is a mix of vintage goods.

Maybe a mismatched curation

and a little DIY,

like my horseshoe candle holders.

Happy Tuesday!

I'm a dreamer. I love taking photos of things that inspire me. My horses, cows, flowers, and my rustic and refound décor. I like taking hikes, love junkin', and team roping and my new outdoor love is kayaking still waters.
