Vintage Finds

I woke up this morning and thought I had to go to this antique store in Lincoln City called Little Antique Mall.  That's how it works, sometimes I get this itch and it tells me, "go and do!".  It's always good to listen.  And I found some things I've been looking for, so it was a success.

Like these little metal accent pieces. This one is particularly cute, in great condition and was once used as an ash tray holder.  Now it's perfect in small spaces like my house for holding drinks and magazines.  It's light weight, practical and stylish.  Also, unlike most modern accent tables it doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Bonus!

Great 70's plastic chairs-huh! At least that what era I think they are from. I don't know, but I like them.  They are colorful, clean-lined and would make great desk chairs in a kid's room.  What would you use them for?  I contemplated getting them for our dining room but they just aren't quite right.

And finally, the piece I have been searching high and low for...a plate to cover a hole left in our front door after I removed the mail slot.  I'm most excited about this find.  I had no idea if I would ever find it and here it is. Matches perfectly with the existing hardware on the door.  My front porch has gotten a make-over. I'm super excited about it and looking forward to sharing it with you.  So more to come on that one.

P.S.  Did you realize how different the top three items are from the last one?  That's because my personal style is 50's/60's with lots of color and my house was built in the 1930's.  The front door has an original brass mini door that opens as the peep hole so you can see who is at the door.  The decorative brass plate should work as a perfect match.
