Hello Love!

Going to antique stores is one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend. My girls and I will grab my mom go around Chattanooga one or twice a month and hit all of our favorite spots. Be sure to FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM so you can follow along on all our adventures!

Today I thought I'd share with you 5 of my favorite home decor pieces I love to pick up while I'm scavenging. 

1. Baskets
I love nothing more than a good quality basket. My mom collected Longaberger baskets years ago and filled our house with them. Once I got married and moved out, I did the same, using them to both decorate and to store things away from sight. 

Longaberger sadly went out of business a few years ago but I love to pick them up at great prices at antique stores and thrift shops.

If used baskets aren't your thing, have no fear! A former Longaberger employee started a new basket company in Dresden, Ohio and was able to hire many of the Longaberger employees back. So great, right?! I recently became a Dresden & Co. Proprietor and love that I get to spread the word about this amazing company, located right in the heart of Ohio. 

I love me a good MADE IN THE USA product!

2. Mason jars
When we built our current house, we went with countertops that had a hint of blue in them. After finding a few aqua mason jars at a shop, I knew I wanted to display them in the kitchen. Along with my teal pyrex collection, they add the perfect pop of color. These can be on the pricy side but I only buy them when I find them under $5.

3. Crocks
These are a great way to display things from artificial & dried flowers to using them to hold kitchen utensils.
These can be a little pricy so hold out until you find a good deal. I've never paid more than $20-30 for one.
4. Wood pieces such as frames, ladders, and windows

I'm a sucker for any old, chippy wood items. From tobacco baskets to old windows, I love have earthly elements all around the house.
Here are some of my favorite pieces.
When I find architectural pieces in antique stores, I try to think out of the box on how to display and use them in my house. I found these old printer stamp drawers and decided to hang them in my laundry room to display all my essential oils. 
 I also found an old box with shelves that I use to keep my old magazines.
5. Old quilts
Now, this collector piece can be a little on the pricy side, as some quilts can be hundreds of dollars but every now and then you can find a VERY well-loved one for a great price. I don't mind pieces that have a little damage to them as I like to display my favorites in my old ladder, as seen below.

At the time that I'm writing this, we're currently on stay-at-home orders due to the Covid-19 (Corona virus) outbreak. Since we haven't been able to leave our homes for non-essential trips in almost 6 weeks, I've been shopping in my attic for old decor pieces that haven't been out in a while. I found another crock with artificial flowers, a wood display piece, and many other things that I can use to give my spaces a fresh look.

As always, feel free to leave questions or comments below! I'd love to chat with you!

How I decorate my home with baskets

Friday, May 1, 2020

Hello Love!
As a long time basket lover, I thought I would take you on a little home tour today on how I use my Longaberger baskets to both decorate my home and use them to store things. 
  I love to bunch and stack them together to make a grouping in areas where I need height and texture, like above my kitchen cabinets or just to fill in bare spaces, like under my coffee table.
While they look beautiful to display, they're also incredibly functional. They've been a complete game changer when it comes to organizing my house. I've used them in my closet to hide things like belts and scarves, in my laundry to hold cleaning supplies and sewing notions, and in my pantry to keep all the food categories neat and tidy.
And then I use them for simple decorations around the home.
So, are you a basket lover like me?

Longaberger and Dresden & Co. baskets are wonderful to display and use around your house.
If you find they're a little out of your price range, don't forget to look at eBay, antique stores, and flea markets for some good deals!
