Nesting wishlist.

Lately I have been daydreaming about fun new items to incorporate into the decor at my new home, so I decided to do a little bit of 'window shopping' on the wonderful internet and it didn't take me long to compile a little nesting wishlist! Here are some cute items that caught my eye:

clockwise from top left:

Blumenfest poster: I love love love the retro flower graphics on this poster! I'm pretty sure that this needs to be hanging in my new dining room.
Cathrine Holm bowl: Wouldn't this bowl filled with lemons make the perfect centerpiece?
1950's French tea towels: I'm really into the classic simplicity of this set.
Cathrine Holm salt and pepper shaker set: Whoa. I didn't even know these existed. How incredible!
Mrs. Meyer's household cleaner: Am I the only one who gets excited at the thought of new cleaning supplies? I'm not gonna lie, one of the things that I'm most excited about is having new and different things to clean! Ha.
Edison bulb pendant lamp: I've always had a soft spot for these lightbulbs so we decided to instal some pendants over our bar top. Yay!
Pimm's Blackberry & Elderflower liqueur: I have really been into Pimm's cocktails lately and I think this limited edition mix would taste absolutely delicious and would also make the perfect housewarming gift.. *hint hint*
Potted plants: My new kitchen has not one, but two (!) big sunny windows so I am really looking forward to filling my windowsills with lots of potted plants and herbs.
Retro juice set: There is something so nostalgic and cheerful about these orange juice set.
Brookfield Zoo print: This is a reproduction print of a promotional poster for the Brookfield Zoo from the late 1930's and I think it is just the cutest! (I may have already ordered it...)
Set of three farmhouse white enamel pots with red trim: I already have a few pieces like this so these pots would be the perfect addition to my growing collection.

  4. Love that poster! So great! I meant to make it out shopping this weekend (I live in a hot bed of vintage shops) but I was too busy finally posting my first reflections of my recent DIY wedding. Just wait till you see my dress!

  5. Such great picks!

  6. This is so ironic. I have that exact orange juice carafe. I found a shorter version of that glass afterwards, and this past weekend, I found a second glass. I'm on my way.

    And, if that's not enough, I also found on the weekend another orange carafe with an orange and white design. I have two matching glasses with that one too. If you're interested, I'd be happy to get this one over to you ;)

    1. What are the chances?! Haha, what a small world, that's so amazing! Do you have an Etsy shop? :)
      XO, Stef

    2. I don't have an Etsy shop - not yet anyways ;) - but I just love a good vintage find and can't seem to pass things up when I see them. I live in Winnipeg and would be happy to gift the orange/white one to you.

      If you're interested, let me know and I'll take a photo of the set and email it to you. If you like it, it's yours. Cheers!

  7. The Brookfield Zoo poster is a WPA poster. They're all in the public domain and available from the Library of Congress. (You can get them printed for cheaper than buying them on Etsy!)

  8. Love the retro juice set! I remember my mom having a similar one in the kitchen when I was a kid.
