Repurposed Receptacles: White on White

I tried to resist but I just couldn't - I've got vintage vases on the brain. Had a gift exchange this weekend with a group of friends all across the country. My gift? This gorgeous vase I've been pining for. Splendid!


Of course, while trying to remember the name of the vintage vendor that sold my beautiful vase (Grandma's Attic) I stumbled upon a whole new onslaught of beauties I'm now coveting. How beautiful are these vintage (or vintage inspired) vases and carafes?

I could probably write an entire post just about how obsessively in love I am with all of Alyssa Ettinger's pieces. There is nothing not completely perfect about her porcelain pieces - from the colors to the construction. Divine.

The pristine white affection led me to Beebleboy Vintage Homewares - where I could also die and go to heaven. Every piece is more exquisite than the last - each more stunning. Makes me dream of long rustic farm tables and delicate little hands who never disturb breakables.

And since I clearly can't resist casts of vintage bottles, I had to take a peak at this little gem from Rebecca Barfoot.

Ahh to have enough shelving, money, and light to appreciate simple, beautiful things.

Do you have a favorite vintage vendor? Tell me about it - I'd love to take a look! What about a favorite vintage piece - does it mean something special to you, why?

Oh, I so love vintage white vases. You can put anything in them and amazingly enough, while antiquing/thrifting, you can usually find them at quite a bargain. I'm really coveting that last vase; I've got just the spot for it! :-) Lisa

i have been in love with Alyssa Ettinger's milk bottles for MONTHS. I'm dying to get a few to use as props. Maybe in the new year. They scream summer to me.
