Vintage Head Vase Floral Vignette: Friday's Find #261


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Today I'm excited to share a find that's been on my thrift store hunting list for a long time--a vintage head vase! I've been on the lookout for ages, but previously had only seen them at antique stores and out of my price range. I was so happy to find this little cutie that I was inspired to create a vintage floral vignette...

Isn't she darling, and doesn't she look as if she was just made for my kitchen? She needed a little love--just some cleaning. Once I added some colorful garden zinnias, I placed her with my vintage jadeite collection.

I realize most of you have seen my favorite vintage collection multiple times. I've mentioned before that this repurposed potting stand turned dish hutch is the first thing I see when I come in my back door and is a favorite place to style seasonal vignettes. It's a cheerful spot that always brings a smile to my face. I added some fragrant dried lavender bouquets that will transition nicely into fall. I also repurposed one of my vintage flower frogs as a small French flower sign. Doesn't my little vase look right at home?

  3. Oh this post just gave me a giggle and a huge smile. I remember these little planters from the 50's. And she's perfect with your jadeite collection which is amazing by the way! Grins and so cute!

  4. I love how her mouth is such a heart; I'm sure you'll use her in some Valentine and St. Patrick's Day vignettes as well!

  5. You certainly know how to find the cuties! I almost started trying to collect the head vases several years ago, but found they were going to be too expensive and too hard to find. Yours is cute as a button! I never find anything these days...but I did find some old seam binding & lace yesterday that I can use for making journals and other crafts. I was happy, especially since it all cost me only $2:) Happy Hunting!

  7. Very sweet! I have seen them while thrifting and they are pricey. I finally got one, a gift from a dear friend. She was cleaning out her dining room cupboard and asked me if I wanted anything. I said I would love the head vase, so she gave it to me. It was from her mother. I was thrilled!

  8. She really does fit in perfectly! I've noticed a few modern head vases in the home decor catalogs this past year or two (even at Target!) but I didn't like them. But this vintage cutie? I like! xo Kathleen
