Welcome with a Little Vintage

If you were to come to my house, and come through the garage (which is the most used entrance), you’d find this fun little vignette.  It’s a  bit of an ode to summer here in the Northland…

A few fun drink coolers for your water, or lemonade, or kool-aid for picnics.

A fun little lantern which is perfect for those summer nights…it reminds me of going night crawler hunting with Dad.  (For those of you not from northern Minnesota, the night crawler (worm) is great bait for fishing!)

A fantastic vintage little metal toy lawn mower.  (A fantastic find from Hunt & Gather.)

The old red gas can which again reminds me of Dad…I believe his was for the lawn mower too.

A gardening kit…yet to be planted.

The old barrel on the left holds the umbrellas.

The little white bench is perfect for sitting a spell.

The pin wheel ready for little Elena to take it for a run in the wind.

And our “Omerza” sign – made of old license plates and framed with some wonderful old barn wood.

All this to welcome you to our home.

Happy Summer!

  1. Oh my! I love it all! Especially the little vintage toy lawn mower. It conjurs up such warm memories for me of when my son was little. He loved his little “plastic” lawn mower and used it so much that I had to buy him a new one before he outgrew it. Now I’ve bought one for my little grandson – he loves it! I have never seen a little metal one – must be from the era when I was little? 50″s?

    • THANK YOU! I haven’t looked up the metal mower…not sure when it would be from, but I should look. I LOVE it too! I just couldn’t resist when I saw it!

      What I love about vintage or antique items is thinking of the life the item has lived…what little person played with it, where, did he/she get it for a present? Each piece has a history and has lived a good life.

      Have a GREAT day!
