Something old

Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.  Yes, this is a well known wedding tradition BUT why can't it be used as a decorating theme as well.


Something old. 


In my situation, finding something old requires a trip to the garage or shed.


And, sometimes, that during that trip to the garage or the shed I spy something remarkable.  

 

Something that *should* go on top of any number of pillars we appear to be collecting.

 

Although, in this situation, that something old...


becomes something new.


Instead of a cap to a vintage pillar, it becomes transformed into *something new* that I subsequently have decided to *borrow*.


Into my house that something old, something new something borrowed has gone.  Onto my kitchen island it sits in it's new life as a decorative pedestal; a holder of flowers, sweets or treats.


Now you are probably wondering what the something blue is, right?

Well, the something blue is this guy when he realizes the something borrowed is really not something borrowed at all since I have no intentions of ever giving it back.


And, that's how you decorate with something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

  5. How long does ones treasure hunting career go on before they accumulate a collection of pillars? I want to dig through your garage! This is a beautiful addition to the home. I love how you gave it life!

    1. You have no idea. I'm not even sure how many pillars we have. 5 maybe? I'm hoping to get some of them out of the garage and put on display!

  7. You have a pillar cartel going on at your house. Once you have control of them all, you can set any price you like!
