Emily, from Feathering the Nest started a daily photo project for the month of December called Finding Beauty in the Ordinary. This week I am planning to join her!

Today I decided to post some pictures of a few vintage items in my room. I enjoy vintage things especially if it's something that belonged to a family member.

[ This brass colander was given to my parents as a wedding gift. I know it really belongs in the kitchen, but I keep a knitting project I'm working on in it! ]

[ This candy dish belonged to my Father's grandmother. He remembers getting mints out of it when he was a boy. :) ]

 [ I love the acorn knob! ]

[ The copy of Pilgrim's Progress also belonged to my Great Grandmother. ]

[ Abigail and I recently bought this chair at a garage sale. It's nice and comfortable! We call it "the throne". ]
