Vintage Love (a centerpiece)


Sometimes hoarding comes in very handy.

Like when you're inspired by a pin.....

And you want to recreate your own version of it.

Well.......if you're a hoarder, then you might just have everything you need.......


One vintage wire milk bottle carrier + four vintage Ball Mason jars = pretty new vase!

All I had to do was brave my attic to retrieve those jars!

See!?

More proof that hoarding is good.

  3. How funny. I love that you just had everything you needed. Most of us would have to search high and low for the supplies. Hoarding is definitely a good thing ;)
