picked | Bread Box & Throw Rug

I'm in love with thrift/antique store shopping and yard saling. In my new category of blog posts "picked" I'll share some of my finds with you, and later on post about what I did with them (so you know I'm not secretly a hoarder!). I see lots of hidden potential in things. Once, in a cluttered flea market booth, Luke commented "I look at this room and think, 'What is all this crap?' but you look at it and think, 'There could be something here.'" He was right. I never look past anything based on its current state--I patiently look, I love the search,and I pick things based on their potential, often changing them later to appeal to my taste. 

I love the lettering and the slightly vintage/worn on this $1.50 bread box. I haven't decided what exactly I'm going to do with it, but I'm definitely going to update it in some way.

This $3 throw rug (2' x 3') from another yard sale is inside the front door currently. Don't know where its home will ultimately be. Maybe the screened-in porch.

I got some dorky crafting stuff too, but that's boring to anyone but me. I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing Saturday today! I had a somewhat lazy evening after a crazy day at work...we accomplished our first wedding delivery & setup for a gorgeous wedding at The Dairy Barn in Fort Mill. Proud of my boss and how well the bakery is doing. I often feel so lucky to have my job!

For weekend inspiration, I'll share this gorgeous home tour with you (courtesy of Apartment Therapy). I pretty much died at every photo. It's kind of my dream space...I may have to copy that vintage plate wall from all our leftover wedding dishes!
