Decorating "Farm Style"

Sometimes we all want a fresh look in our kitchen..but sometimes the "old is in"...meaning... sometimes we can create an awesome new look by going back a few years, and bringing vintage styled items into our rooms,creating an all new look that adds cheeriness, as well as a good bit of nostalgia.

-------------
I don't know about you, but I for one do not want my home decor looking like everyone else's, or full of big box store items...the look that everyone and their sister can find for a dime a dozen, and marked "made in (insert some foreign country name here) ...
Nope...I tend to gravitate towards things that fit into the "vintage" category...true some of them just might have come from another country...but, I didn't support a big box store when I bought them...nope...I supported someone who took the time to unearth these treasures at either an estate sale, garage sale, or dug out of a box from grandma's attic or such.
-----------
You seee...I enjoy shopping on etsy.com for my fun decor finds and thought I'd share a few farm themed items I came across here for you.
All of the items posted here are posted along with the shop name of where you can find these inexpensive, but fun, and vintage decor items.(no, I am not being bribed, paid, or begged to list these items here...I'm doing it just for the fun of it) Enjoy!

Kids and Farm print in black and white from http://www.thevintagemode.etsy.com/ (would look great in a red frame)


Copper Cookie Cutters from http://www.zellesattic.etsy.com/(these would be cute hung from red ribbons against gingham curtains.or in a small basket with a rolling pin nearby.)

A set of 2 awesome cow anatomy prints from http://www.vintagegoodness.etsy.com/
These would make a great framed set.Very detailed illustrations. (I could see these framed in classic black frames or again in cheery red frames.) Next up... these four seasons on the farm prints are available from http://www.kelleystreetvintage.etsy.com/

These are very pretty I think.Showing each season on the same farm. These would look nice I think displayed in frames over top of the kitchen cabinets..,in a panoramic sequence of frames starting with Spring and ending with Winter.


Wouldn't this old book be so cute propped up on your counter next to a display of little farm animals, or alongside your vintage chicken display along with a plant? Available at http://www.auldthingsnew.etsy.com/


What about this cute old goat print? Not often that you can find a nice print like this of a goat. This fine print is available at :http://www.kelleystreetvintage.etsy.com/

Goats and cows not your thing? What about horses? This lovely horse tray is available at: http://www.pinksupply.etsy.com/

Into gardening..how about this little "Inch by Inch, Row by Row"..tiny plate? isn't it adorable? Available at:http://www.crabvilleinautumn.etsy.com/

And last.... but not least we can't forget the little cluckers...this cute rooster figure is available at:

Holy cow! That apron looks just like the one I inherited from my Czechoslovakian great grandma. It's so old and soft. I LOVE wearing it in the kitchen :)
