Old School Postal Box

5-24-15_IMG_1395 copyWhen I saw this antique postal box in a building, I thought it was the coolest thing ever! While it’s no longer in use, the postal box has been kept in perfect condition over the years. Vintage items like this are great conversation pieces, and also makes you think about the craftsmanship we use to put into everyday items. Looking to add some vintage charm of your own? There are several ways you can get the vintage postal look for your own space! One option is to take a photo of a vintage mail box and hang it on your wall. You’ll find these types of mail boxes in historic or old government buildings. Interested in something more authentic and 3-D? There are several companies that sell antique and replica vintage postal boxes that you can purchase and install in your home (or even outside). No matter which way you choose to show off your vintage tastes, you’ll have a conversation piece that will entertain your guests for years to come!

Dew Drops Reflecting the World

Water droplets on leavesHello, and welcome to my 200th post! I want to give a big thanks to all of my readers and followers who have supported my blog thus far! I wanted to have a really cool picture for this post, and I think I’ve got it with the picture above. I noticed several drops of dew as I was walking toward work, and decided it would be a great opportunity to take an awesome picture. The glossy water really stands out against the matte leaves. If you look closely, you can see the clouds and sky reflected in the water droplets. I felt this simple, yet complicated image, was a great way to celebrate my 200th post! Looking forward to creating more posts that provide lots of inspiration for your space!

Happy 1st Anniversary!
