I thought it would be nice to start the weekend with some vintage inspiration... I stumbled upon the Etsy shop, Pine and Main the other day and wanted to share some of the many wonderful wares for the home that you'll find there.
Katie, the master curator behind Pine and Main, lives in a small town in North Carolina with her husband and three rescued kittens. As she states on her site, "We live in a place where there's still an old hardware store, the ice cream is made locally and trains run through the middle of town several times a day." Nostalgia runs deep in her community, as well as her shop. Click to find the metal storage box, Buffalo China Platter, antique wash tub, and pliers and tin snips.
I have too much dishware in my crowded cabinets and I blame it on perfectly pretty plates like this one. Katie's ironstone plates (set of 4) have a sweet floral design and aged patina you can't ignore. I want, I want...
In Katie's spare time, she also makes pillows out of vintage grain sacks. When I asked Katie what she loved about vintage goods, she replied, "They are all one of a kind, even those things that were originally mass produced. The way an object is used, worn and loved over time is transformative."
This is a great find. It's a vintage brass porthole mirror that can up the cool factor of a room pretty quick. As Katie shares, "It's weighty with a fabulous patina." I've always loved the inherent character of these old nautical mirrors and need to figure out the right spot for one in my own home...
Currently, this is Katie's favorite item in her Etsy shop. It's a rustic dish with lid and handles from Shelton's Pottery in Seagrove, North Carolina. As Katie shared, "I find its glaze and form to be quite pleasing." Me too... Happy Weekend, see y'all on Monday.
