Fall brings out the nesting instinct in so many of us. Definitely me. I found myself pulling out all of my favorite cozy wool throw blankets. Too many really. Although they do all get snuggled up against throughout the season. But still I have quite a stack of them.
The issue of too many wool throws combined with a corner begging for height and color brought about the idea of a repurposed ladder blanket rack. The paint splattered aqua ladder is one of my favorite treasures. I could have sold this ten times over but always knew it belonged with me and now, here as a blanket rack.
That corner is really shaping up to be my favorite, stacked high with vintage treasures. The captain lamp on top of that desirable card catalog table framed by those blankets and ladders. Yes, please! I think that the introduction of aqua in the corner has saved the card catalog from the white paint job that I was contemplating.
Have you scored any new vintage treasures lately?
