Sweet Salvage-Color Stories

 The theme for this months Sweet Salvage event was Color Stories.

 Now this is my kind of color!! Ha Ha. Okay, so grey may not really be a "color" per se, but it is certainly of of my favorites. It's such a calm and soothing color and goes with just about everything!


 So pretty!

This old sign came home with me. I thought it was perfect since I have built up a nice collect of vintage scales.

 Green is the color of nature. I also find it a wonderful soothing color. 

 Seems like I am always seeing things in my photos that I wish I would have brought home with me. This scale is one of them. It would have looked so awesome in my kitchen!!!

 Love it all. Here in Phoenix where so much of our greens are brown or grey, this vivid color just makes me happy!!!!

And speaking of happy... this works too!!! The metal letters are awesome and just look at that sweet aqua manni.

 I sooo wish my studio was bigger. She would have been a wonderful addition to it.

 Okay I am loving this armoire!!! Can't you just see it in a studio with those see through drawers stuffed with lace?? "Sigh."

I thought this was a cool industrial cabinet too.

 This purple was fabulous. It reminds me of my garden since purple is the predominant color out there.

 These were cool and I almost took a couple home. They are flat on the back so they can go right up against a wall. The frame is pretty cool too. And look... purple scaveola, just like I have in my garden right now!!
I'm not sure if this is an Annie Sloan chalk paint color or not, but I need to find out. I may need to paint a piece this color for my patio.

 I also really liked this pretty mustard color. Perfect for a French Country room don't you think??

My last favorite piece was this wonderful cubby unit on wheels.
Can you say Studio Bliss????

There were others wonderful displays full of reds, oranges, and vivid blues, but well... you know... those just aren't our colors!!!

If you get the chance to go this weekend, you should go!!!

Some great things, Karen! I love those wicker chairs and their cushions in the first picture. Love the sign you got. That will look great near a collection of scales.

You're so lucky to live near a place like this, we just don't get great "junk" like this, I'd be in seventh heaven if we did. I used to do the same as you, take lots of photos out junking, then when I'd get home I look at them and go I don't remember seeing that, if I had I would have bought it. You just know if you went back though it wouldn't be there still! You really made me laugh. I love your salvage posts.

What a fun day this must have been! There was so much to see. Gray may not be a color, but I have been in love with it lately too.

I really enjoyed reading about your visit to the shop and all the inspiring pictures you posted!

Hi Karen,
I live in Phoenix. Have you discovered the new store yet named 3 Vintage Chicks. It just opened at Sweetwater and Cave Creek. There grand opening is May 17th. LOVE this place. They sell FAT paint and there is a pewter color to die for! I'm sure you have been to the stores south of Cactus on Cave Creek. I love The Tattered Nest, Audreys.
Also Rustic Saturday just opened not far from 3 Vintage Chicks. Cave Creek is starting to be N. Phoenix Vintage Row! I love it because they are 5 minutes from my house. Love your blog!
