i’m not a hoarder… i’m a collector. i’m a collector of vintage table clothes, pyrex, hazel atlas pink dishes, ceramic collies, paint by numbers, wool plaid blankets, plaid metal coolers and jadeite. hey everything has it’s place right!? my jadeite shelves were starting to fill up so i had to make room. heaven forbid i actually get rid of something. i made my third purchase from decor steals a site that offers limited time deals at up to 80% off for farmhouse decor. i thought this plate drying rack shaped like a chicken feeder did the trick! it made me feel like my jadeite was almost on parade!
i was lucky enough to be working at the found cottage the day that allison from the golden sycamore brought in her restock of preserved cotton stems. they kind of fill up the space between the gallery wall and the lower jadeite plate rack.
the chicken picture is actually from an early 1900’s hatchery catalog. i have about 20 prints i am going to frame and eventually make it into a gallery wall. for now though this pair is happy sitting on the table. the frame is from west elm in grand rapids.
i have a few different sizes of jadeite in the rack. i have the salad plates, the basic dinner plates but i think my favorite of all time is the dinerware sectioned off plates i bought from my friend mark that owns lost and found in downtown grand rapids. and it came with the mugs. i was seriously giddy unpacking those bad boys.
clearly i have a thing for green right now. the high gloss table is holding up quite nicely. of course it’s easy to kind of scratch and dent. am i the only one who is a little relieved when the first scratch happens? because i feel like that gives me permission to really use it. lol i know that is so weird but if i am the one who did it..i’m not as mad. does that make any sense?
has anyone else purchased from decorsteals? what are some of your favorite home decor splurge sites?
