Save the World..Buy Vintage

This is one of my favorite sayings and prints I have every purchased. I bought this from Michelle Holmes at Vintage Junky  here in Spring Hill, TN. I love her little shop and it is in my hometown. I try to shop local when I can as I am not a fan of malls or crowds at all.

So when the Mr. and I purchased our home a year ago, her shop was the first I visited to find funky treasures for our new abode.  I saw this in her shop and instantly loved it.

I arranged it with my Mother's vintage copper cookware over our pantry........

I jazzed it up by buying a blank canvas in which I painted the same color as my kitchen. I then used my trusty Rustoleum Heirloom White and painted a frame I have been saving for awhile looking for just the right use.  I mounted the print directly to the canvas with Mod Podge and voila!!! Simple....simple.  It truly is a statement of how I love to repurpose and upcycle vintage items.  I love giving old things new life.
