I hope I don’t totally kick myself later, but I’ve decided it’s time to part with a few pieces that have been some of my favorites. It isn’t that I don’t still love them, it’s that I think it’s just time to make room for some new pieces. After awhile, you just start ignoring things that you love, because you’re so used to seeing them, so rotating pieces out keeps our home from looking like the “same old, same old” all the time.
I nearly fainted when I won this Underwood antique typewriter an an auction about 4 years ago. It is the prettiest typewriter I have ever seen and I have absolutely loved it.
Each one of the keys has aged differently, which I love.
I also love the gold printed typewriter emblem and the large Underwood Standard name.
Have you ever seen a typewriter with such a long carriage on it? I hadn’t before I bought this one.
Believe me, after shooting these photos, I started questioning whether I really want to part with it. From the bell on the side to the gorgeous shape, to all the gold details, it’s just so pretty. I DO plan to get some prints made from these photos to remember it by though. It’s available in my shop HERE (if I don’t change my mind!)
I also listed this galvanized tool tote – another piece I won at an auction. Seriously, isn’t galvanized metal just the prettiest?
If you’ve been visiting my blog for awhile, you probably saw it in my Kitchen Reveal. At that time, I was displaying it on a shelf.
Later, I put 3 small metal “bucket” tins inside it, and used it to hold our silverware.
It’s available in my online shop HERE.
Another piece you may remember from my kitchen is this deliciously chippy antique door panel that I used as a plate display.
I sealed the entire front of it with Tough Coat to keep those pretty chips in place. I’ll probably list the antique spoon display piece as well, but I haven’t done that yet. If you are interested in the spoon display, you are welcome to leave me a comment below, and I’ll create a listing for you.
The door panel is available HERE.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
