It's that first cold snap. The smell of fires burning in neighborhood fireplaces.
It's that time of year when I start eyeing my sweaters and vests. I can't wait to start layering.
And though I love decorating with vintage goodies all year round, when October comes I seem to reach for and appreciate them even more. I guess it's that sense of history and sense of place. I yearn for it in the Fall.
Today that meant nestling some vintage doorknobs and door plates in with my white pumpkins.
Absolutely adore the sparkle on those doorknobs!

It's also where we scored some gorgeous vintage salvaged windows, like this one we hung above the fireplace:

Everywhere I look lately, I'm spying incredible vintage happiness. Like this Volvo in East Portland:

While not strictly vintage, this adorable little creamer I found certainly has that vintage vibe, not to mention delicious Fall color:
Of course there is always and forever the wonderful home section of Anthropologie, where this delightful beauty shot to #1 on my wishlist:

Last but not least...I was installing a server at a client's new office last week.
I about fell over when I saw this salvaged sliding barn door:

Only because it's too heavy for me to carry.
I did, however, get the name of the guy that sourced and installed it :-)
I'm not *completely* insane.
Till next time, friends!
