Greetings Friends! There are a few places in my home where treasured vintage collections are on display year round. Even so, I still enjoy changing things up a bit and adding seasonal accents...
My jadeite collection is the focal point of the kitchen and I can't imagine ever storing it...shudder... in the cabinets! On the other hand, I do love to create little vignettes according to the season. As I mentioned at Christmas, I find red complements the green glass so I've had fun adding an assortment of valentines. Don't you love the red dot bowl with the vintage valentines? Like jadeite, it was manufactured by Fire-King. The bowl is one from a set I thrifted and shared in an early Friday's Find feature. The little red keys are more clearance napkin rings and I thought they were perfect for Valentine's Day. I've used these as mini easels for valentine postcards. See how I repurposed other clearance napkin rings here!
There's a Mary Engelbreit tin I've had for ages and tiny bear holding a valentine--both make me smile. The tin reminded me of Favorite Son as a toddler and now with the family resemblance, Ginger Grand. The bear is a mini replica of Rupert, the very first gift I gave GG. The much loved teddy is still his companion.
A thrifted vintage scale holds a recent find,
a handmade tin heart and another valentine postcard.
You can see most of my vignettes are styled with thrifted finds I've collected over time.
