The most wonderful trunk ever!

Blue Ball canning jars.
Perfect for filling with pasta, rice or chocolate chips
for a beautiful organized pantry.  I have these on my pantry shelf and love the look!

Gorgeous mantles
to add instant character to your home!
  Fill the opening with stacks of books, add a comfy chair, a warm blanket,
 a cute side table to hold your cup of tea and a reading lamp and you've got a cozy corner
 to curl up with a good book.
I did this with a vintage mantle for my daughter's room
 and she gets that coffee shop atmosphere 
that beckons her to take a few moments to relax and read awhile every day.

At Christmas you can hang your stockings with care!

A vintage  trash can or maybe a planter?
 Or maybe its a great place to store the  mittens or umbrellas in the mud room.
Whatever you use it for, it's gorgeous with its perfect shade of vintage green and ribbed metal detail.

Fill this pretty pitcher with fresh cut lilacs or hydrangeas. 
 It's the most beautiful shade of purple. 
 The glasses are perfect for frozen drinks at a summer party and the tray is pewter!

More great trunks!

A white wicker writing desk would be charming for a bedside
 or vanity in a young girl's room.

And as always, more to come next week.....lots more!
