How is your week going so far? I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for some good old fashioned sunshine. It has been rainy, cold, and foggy here for the last several days. I don't know how you people in Seattle do it!
So, since the weather is so dreary here, many of my photos show the lights turned on. Hopefully, the photo police won't arrest me! (You know who you are!) LOL!
I have a very strong affinity for old wooden crates. Well, actually, any wooden crate, for that matter. And if it has wording on it..........even better!
I used this one on my kitchen table with some topiaries in it. I love using plants to fill my crates.
I know I've shared this one before. This is a very old crate in my dining room.
I've also shared this one with you before. It is an old crate with German writing. It is used in my foyer.
I found this one recently and decided to place it under my old scale. It's actually a wooden tray.
I love wooden trays too. I have this extra large one on my coffee table.
This crate is one of my favorite newer ones because of the wood mixed with metal and the rope handles. It sits on top of the refrigerator holding more plants.
One of my all time favorite combinations is an old bottle in a wooden crate. I found this one at an antique mall last year. It now sits on top of our computer cabinet in the kitchen.
And finally, I have this old milk crate in my family room.
I think I know why I love old crates so much. Since my home is mostly painted furniture and white walls, the warmth of the wood from the crates gives it a nice contrast. I don't think I would like them so much if I had a lot of wood everywhere else in my home. These pieces become interesting accents that also provide storage (if I should ever use them for that).
Do you have something that you're drawn to that makes a difference in your home?
Thanks for stopping by!
