The Old Chippy Stuff


There is just something about the really old white chippy stuff.  For some reason, it always calls my name, it inspires me, and I love to fill my home with it!


An old white ironstone dish, filled with vintage hinges and such.


I love contrasts, like the old architectural column with the smooth old vase on top of it!

 
 I always have a soft soft in my heart for old advertising. This old sign, hanging above two old corbels on a stepback cupboard, always warms my heart.  I love that the owner of the farm added "daughter" to his sign after she was born!


With industrial being so popular right now, I loved how the industrial lamp, my son made me for Christmas fit right in with my pair of architectural corbels.


Architectural elements, old vintage windows and more "stuff" pull you in to my house when you come in the front door.

I have two of these old chippy columns with the old wood pieces on the top. They just seemed to match the old farm tractor door next to it on the fireplace.

Old, rusty "cow tags" that have rusted over the years, casually hang on one of my favorite tall, chippy architectural pieces in my bedroom. The old rust and chippy white seem to always compliment each other. I'm linking up today with my friend Debra over at Common Ground. I hope you have a chance to stop by and pay her a visit!

Hey Sue, I always love to see how you put all your fabulous goodies together. What is it about the chippy white stuff? You always know just how to put it all together. I just looked back at your post about the wonderful stepback cupboard and your amazing collection of kiddy things. So glad you came by, hope you're having a great start to the year!

Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
Does managing a well-established blog like yours require a massive
amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal every day.
I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
