This fantastic vintage industrial rolling metal tool chest was one of the very first things I bought when I started my business. I loved the color and I thought it would make a unique bar either indoors or outside by a pool or barbecue. In my mind it had many uses and I thought it would sell quickly. Little did I know that I would still have it over three years later and after extolling its' many uses to a prospective buyer that she would end up purchasing it for the sole purpose of keeping her tools in it!!! Ha! Ha! Sometimes the things they were meant to be used for in the first place turn out to be the best. Just depends on someone's needs...

You may be asking yourself what the heck these are??? Well they are rare vintage 1960's metal Satellite Jumping Shoes by Rapaport Bros. They were advertised 'FUN! for Boys & Girls 4-14'. Each shoe has two metal springs attached to a metal base. The tops of the shoes have lace-up foot attachments. Not sure how safe they would have been for anyone but they now make a great conversation piece and a fun display item.

There is something about a good vintage flower oil painting that gets me every time. I think they are very romantic and this one is no exception. Zoom in on the colors and detail. You can definitely feel the past. I wonder who painted this and where it was hung?

A whacky assortment of objects found their way into this display. The main theme seems to center around wooden shoe molds. Not sure why that is but whatever it seems to work. It doesn't have to have a rhyme or reason. It's all about the colors and the layering. Definitely not for the minimalist!!!

Yet another PROUD MOM MOMENT!!! I just got home from attending the premiere of @TheLastTycoon with @lilyjcollins and friends. The show starts streaming today, Friday, July 28th on @amazonprime. You can binge watch the entire season or spread it out but just make sure you watch it!!! Pretty fantastic if you ask me but then again I am a tiny bit biased!!!

These vintage stenciled tin name plates were from a time when folks named their cows and attached signs identifying them outside their respective stall doors. Not sure this tradition still exists. They are probably just given a number in today's world. I prefer the idea that they were treated as part of the family and had identities of their own. Think old McDonald had a farm. Great names by the way!!!

A fun little collection of random vintage cases of varying shapes and sizes. No rules for collecting or displaying in my opinion. Buy what you like and you won't go wrong. Somehow it all goes together!!! #vintagesuitcase #vintagetrunk #gifts #uniquegifts #designer #decorator #vintagedecor #wehoshopping
Random grouping of vintage brass table lighters found the other day at a house sale. You don't see these much anymore but everyone used to have one sitting on a coffee table or desk in their den, family room or office. They may be out of vogue but they sure do make an interesting collection!!!

This is a Victorian coin purse made with celluloid inserts within an elaborate brass casing and a central plaque engraved with the word 'Souvenir'. The inside is lined in deep purple satin still vivid in color with three separate compartments and a secret one enclosed in the middle. Interesting fact... Celluloid is considered the first thermoplastic and it was first created as Parkesine in 1856 and then as Xylonite in 1869, before being registered as Celluloid in 1870.
I found this in England. I wish they still made souvenirs like this today!!! A lovely reminder of bygone days.

Lovely antique bronze I brought home the other day. She is probably from the early 1900's. There was just something about her I couldn't resist.

This is a unique antique shoe-shaped brass pocket knife. On one side it has engraved 'The Patriot Shoe' and on the reverse side 'Star Brand Shoes Are Better'. The blade is marked 'RJ & RS. Co.' on one side and 'Germany' on the other. It measures about 3" in length. I have not polished it up as I feel it is up to the new owner to make that call. This was a promotional give away made between 1900-1907 and is a wonderful piece of advertising history!!!

Here are @martinoxon and @lilyjcollins continuing the conversation after one of the many screenings of @tothebonemovie. This is one of those films that encourages dialogue. There have many brave audience members who have stood up and admitted to having this disease and others who knew someone who had it. It seems that people want to bring this subject out into the light instead of hiding it in the shadows. If this film encourages and accomplishes that then it has done a service. I am beyond proud to have watched this project come to fruition and I look forward to seeing where it goes. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Sometimes you only need the book cover to make a statement. Especially when it is as FABULOUS as this one!!! Lean it anywhere and build up a vignette in front of it. Be creative no matter what!!! You only have to please yourself. No rules when decorating!!! #gifts #unusualgifts #designer #decorator #wehoshopping #vintagedecor #vintagedesign #vintagebookcover

The framed photograph depicts a theatre production line up most likely taken as the cast came out to take their bows. The orchestra has stopped playing as their performance for the evening has come to an end as well. If anyone can identify the play by the wonderful costumes please enlighten me!!! Behind this charming photo is an antique bronze elevator floor indicator that shows floors 1-19. (minus 13 of course) These dials make wonderful wall art and they are getting more and more difficult to find. This is quite an elaborate one and I only wish I knew what building it lived in for all those years directing people to the various floors!!!
