Vintage Kitchen - Farmhouse

I was so inspired by the Farm to Table Etsy Finds this morning.  I love the locavore approach to food and the vintage farmhouse/country style is so me.   

 Clockwise from the top:

Midsummer Mini Collection by TheMeasure, $255

Vintage Donut and Biscuit Cutter from ethanolie, $10

Vintage Cruet Frame from cottagefarm, $28

Vintage Bakeware from oldschoolfarm, $16.50

I've been decorating our kitchen and master bedroom with finds from the Kane County flea market - last weekend I found this amazing window with screen, it might have been an insert in a screen door.  It's either going to be a pin board or a chalk board, but it's shabby peeling paint is perfection.  Last summer I found a dry goods storage bin that I need to sand and give a white paint wash - another day, another post.

Vintage Dessert Glasses from TheOldRedHen

I've also found beautiful pieces from TheOldRedHen on Etsy - her shop is in vacation mode while she moves, but I strongly recommend you check back when she opens.

I love thrifting and the flea market, but the vintage shops on Etsy make it so easy to search and find the perfect pieces.  I'm still looking for a wash basin and pitcher for our bedroom, shutters to make a headboard.  I'm not sure what I'll do with myself when it's all done.

You can see more Vintage Farm to Table in my treasury here:

love the treasury - I see these items and think of my mother's kitchen when I was a little girl...

Love what you are collecting .. hope you'll share photos of your completed kitchen!

Beautiful finds! I have to admit that even though I do search for my own treasures at local shops, I buy plenty on Etsy as well. Love this post - can't wait to see what you do with your recent purchases :)
