(I want to thank A Stroll Thru Life for featuring this post!)
Hi, everyone! Did you have a good Labor Day weekend? Keith and I had a nice little getaway, and now I'm back refreshed! We did some good shopping-I'll be showing you my new finds soon!
I just redid a little area of our front hallway and I thought I'd show you.
It's just a small space and I wanted to do something a little different. Recently at the flea market I found this old canvas utility pouch with 'Bell system B' printed on it. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it-I just thought it was fun. When I showed Keith he thought it was cool, too, and suggested that I put flowers in it and hang it. Gotta love how that man thinks!
So I filled it with some dried lavender and grabbed a chippy sifter that I had upstairs, thinking it would be an interesting backdrop to hang the pouch on.
Then I brought this old laundry cart out of storage in the basement (I got it at the flea market years ago, for a steal I might add) and put it against the wall under the sifter.
I added some grain sacks and linens...
...and there's my new display! Simple but unexpected, I think.
Here is the view of the hallway looking to the left.
(You get a tiny peek of some changes I've done in our office, which I'll show you another time :)
And here's the view to the right, toward the stairs.
Beyond this to the right is the dining room.
So what do you think of my new little vignette?
Thanks so much for stopping by-have a wonderful day!
