Old stuff and the magic of re-styling

Do you like old vintage things handed down through the generations? I do. As some of you already know, these old scales are a favourite of mine. I love them because they were my mums and she used them allot. I use them too and they are the source of much inspiration. Just when I think I have them styled exactly how I feel suits them and my kitchen, I find another way to enjoy them.

This was my Day 5- "Old" entry for Jen Bishops #7vignettes on Instagram. I do think old things look great paired with bright contrasting colours just to liven them up a little.


I love green "matchy matched" on green. It is so very calming!


I also think they look very happy themed with all this vintage goodness too!

Which is your favorite?
