Industrial chic? Plus weekend finds!~

Speaking of metal, I've been finding a lot of tins, bisquet or cookies were sold in them. This one was different because it has a plastic handle and little legs. I found such a cute little night light, too. It has a cat and a fiddle and a cow (no moon, though), and says Hey Diddle Diddle! I see nursery lamps with the wooden figures, but this is the first night light.

I also have been doing my bedroom in floral forties prints, more feminine and Summery. I have had the Oriental look for a while now, and it just started feeling too much, so I switched it to the guest room. Love it!

Also, a couple of weeks ago - I finally found the Proctor Silex starburst glass coffeepot. I have had a few of the flowered ones, but was so happy to find this atomic one!
And, this buffet server chrome rocket ship coffee maker too! Well - more to come, but wanted to say HI!

I must say I love the floral look in your bedroom! A nice change! I adore that little night light...how cute!! Of course I love that starburst coffee pot! I think those lockers are way cool. Painted fun colors in a mud room or by a pool...awesome! Or even a kids room. So much could be done with them. Great finds! Hugs, Linda

I'd put those lockers in the "Mantiques" category! Your other frinds are great too, I love the rocket coffee pot.:)

Ooo! Lucky you! You found an Irmi night light! I've never seen a lamp or night light in person- only on the blogs! ♥

You found some great things. I love that old wiggly wire form the past. I try to grab it when I can.
I don't have a swimming pool locker basket but I do have a safty pin from one!!
Love that night lite!
Thank you for that sweet comment. I so agree with you about an old style kitchen! It just feels like home.
