Lets Go Antiquing With The Shop At My Dream Canvas

I love a good find, especially when I have stumbled upon it at an antique store :)  Lately, I have been having a lot of fun finding  interesting things at antique stores. I love the history and some of the pieces I find are rather unique. 

Today, I am happy to announce that I will be curating a small collection of such finds for The Shop At My Dream Canvas. These will be vintage items. I shall share as much history as I know about these pieces. Silver plated dishes like the one in the image below usually have a stamp at the back. The stamp can  lead you to its history and vintage. I love doing the research and find it fascinating!

 Here is a sneak peek into what's coming :)  Sharing a quick picture from my phone.

I am really excited!!

Vintage Inspired Tabletop Decor

I am back after the long weekend feeling happy and content. The reason is not because I managed to relax or do something fun! Its because Mr MDC and I tackled some home projects and did some spring cleaning.  We are tired but happy and it feels good :) I am going to kick start the week with these gorgeous images of a vintage inspired tabletop created for a wedding!

The people who created this magical soiree is Patina Rentals. I was fascinated to learn about the concept behind Patina Rentals. To quote " Patina is all about handpicked vintage furniture oozing with the character and beauty that comes with age. Our collection of rentals is curated by a design addicted, vintage junkie who brings pieces from different eras, styles, and far flung places together under one roof in an old garment factory in Brooklyn"

Sounds and looks beautiful, does it not? I found these images on the Free People blog which I have bookmarked for their amazing posts filled with inspiration and creative ideas. 

From the green succulents, the vintage brass candlestands, the indigo hues and the vintage dishes..........this setting is truly enchanting!!

Etsy Finds :The Painted Lily

I am officially obsessed with coasters. I have to sheepishly admit that I have quite a few :) These stunning stone coasters recently caught my eye! The paintedlily is a great resource for one of a kind treasures! The coasters are made on a small rural farm in Pennsylvania. The best part is that the owner Jenny Alexander ships worldwide!! 

Here are a few I like! Which set is your favorite??
