"I've Been Framed"

Large Chalkboard frame

My hubby...always here for me

Found vintage gold frames

Repurposed beautiful for any special occasion

And still a lot more to finish...

     I literally have a wall of vintage frames that I have collected and repurposed to functional chalkboards. So you might ask what do you do with them....well I will answer that question very shortly but not in this post! Whenever I'm out at the flea markets, thrift stores, yard sales or where every I'm looking for them. Fortunately they usually find me and I happily bring them home. 

     I'm thankful for my hubby who always does a great job making sure that they look very beautiful and neat. So until next time and hopefully sooner I'll show you some other things that I'm doing. 

     Until then happy collecting, thrifting and thank you very much for stopping by.:)

"Another Day...More Beautiful Finds"

New Mirror

Fabulous boutique

The Details

Totally unique piece

     There's definitely a place in my heart and home (always) for vintage mirrors. This weekend proved to be a great opportunity to find and spot some unique treasures for my home or yours. I'm often asked what to I do with all the mirrors I find? Well many are offered for sale when I'm a vendor at The Remnants of The Past Vintage Show. While others I sell privately, some are repurposed to chalkboards for events, and I hoard all the others (lol). 

     If you'd like to see what I'm doing in between posting here follow me on Instagram. I hope that you'll join me there and in the mean time happy collecting, thrifting for more beautiful finds for your home! See you next time....

"Not Just Another....Mirror"

New find



A few of them

     If you have followed "The Blue Farmhouse" for any length of time you're well aware of my love for these grand ornamental vintage mirrors. And I have lots of them in different shapes and styles but each one as beautiful as the other. I don't always paint them white but I have developed an affinity for this color... well for some things. I guess you could say it's the new black and with all the other colors surrounding them the white just stands regal.

      Usually I will place a pair of vintage lighting or gold candelabras on either side and it looks great. Recently a few of my very large white mirrors were used by a bride in her dressing room for the bridesmaid and of course the bride. I was more than happy to see them serve a beautiful functional purpose like... a wedding.  

     Thank you to my followers for your support and sweetness and I invite you to check me out on Instagram too. Until next time happy collecting, thrifting and pop on over to see what I'm up to on Instagram.

"My Vintage Armoire Find"

My Blue Farmhouse Favorite Find 

Move in day

I love this skeleton key

Stuck drawer...determined guy 


     This is a story of one of my most favorite finds so far with lots (I mean lots) of pictures. It begins with a weekend trip to a couple of thrift stores. I walk in and my eyes scope out my surrounding quickly. Have you ever heard the saying "You snooze you lose" well that has happened to me a few times. Truthfully most of the times it appears that it's sitting there already mark sold to Miss Blue Farmhouse.

     So as I walk to the back I spot this vintage armoire and my heart is pounding out of my chest. I literally can't believe my eyes and then I think play it cool so you can get a better price. Price!?! Who cares I want this piece even though it requires a rearranging of my house or a bigger one. Thankfully my husband sees my vision (well kinda) and we make the purchase. Needless to say we are very happy and I think he loves it more that I do.

     Thank you for listening to my short story and I do hope that you'll come back for the next one.
