Room of the week

I’ve loved this room for a long time now. Can’t remember where I found the image, but isn’t it just so inviting.

(if you know the source of this image, do tell so I can credit it properly)

Have I mentioned that vintage meets modern is my ultimate favorite. Yup, I could definitely eat, sleep and breath in this room.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.

Vintage as props

Happy Tuesday everyone! Before Julie and I opened Gather and Collect, we knew that the experience would be priceless and life changing, but we had no idea how many amazingly talented people we would have the honor of meeting.

Today I would like to introduce you to Kelly from kellyallison photography and her amazing photography.

The milk glass, vintage thread spools, flash cards and knit purse were all from our store, and Kelly used them as props to show off her clients products. And what a beautiful job she did. Kelly is a talented local photographer and has the true ability to tell a story and translate a thousand emotions through a single photograph. Check out her website and blog for more information.

Oh I never tire of the many uses of vintage.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.

Art walls

I know I’ve done this sort of post a million times, but art walls just never get old for me. I am seriously OBSESSED with art, but more specifically vintage art. And when you have quite the collection (like we do), the natural progression is to create art walls.

The author of From the Right Bank evidently has the same obsession, so I scoured her blog for some pretty pictures.



(This last image is a bad iphone photo of one of my art walls taken back in the fall)

Being that it’s our job to gather and collect all things vintage, we stumble across a lot of really great vintage art. Some of which stay in our homes, and others make it to the store. So if you’re in the market for some really great vintage art, I think we may have what your looking for, and then some. Actually, we probably have what your mother, aunts, grandmas, sisters, cousins, friends are looking for as well;)

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.

An ode to color…Red

It’s been two whole weeks since I’ve posted here on this lovely blog, and I sure did miss it. I promise never to leave you hanging for that long again. But you know, sometimes life throws you curve balls and you have to deal with them. And so that’s what I was doing, catching curve balls. But I’m hoping it will be straight rolling from here on out. At least for a while.

So in honor of love and all the beauty it brings to our lives, this post is an ode to Red.

(All images are via pinterest)

Those last two images are my personal favorites. Look at how that cherry red just brightens up the entire room.

I’ve been drooling over getting a red Womb chair (3rd image up) for about 6 years now. I just need to convince my husband that it’s normal to spend $3000 on a chair and that college for the kids really isn’t necessary. I’m doubting this will be an easy task.

If nothing else, I hope your day is filled with lots and lots and lots of chocolate.

Cheers to a vintage life well lived.
