Collection: Vintage Knick Knacks

{from top left: tray, hot plate, ceramic owl, vase, money box, clock, piggy bank, owl canisters}

Lately, I have been completely obsessed with vintage knick knacks and have been spending whatever free time I have, in the second-hand shops and thrift stores. I believe one can never have enough knick knacks around the house; they add such warmth to the place. It gives me such joy to revisit my finds and study them, again. Every time I look at that old tray I found at a flea market or a hand-painted plate that I got from the neighborhood thrift store, I see the piece differently and it appears more beautiful than ever. So, this weekend I suggest that you move around your finds and pick out one favorite piece from the pile and place it on your desk for inspiration (and priceless smiles). Have a wonderful weekend!

P.S. My Owl Barn is on Facebook.

I love owls! I make owls out of my scraps of fabrics all the time. Usually with the intention as giving them as gifts but my little brothers end "borrowing" them haha x
