Monthly Feature at the Queen from {Home-ology} modern vintage

June has arrived. And in addition to being the wedding season, it's also time to relish the outdoors and all it has to offer. This time of year, I can't help but be drawn to all things related to outdoor gatherings and celebrations.

This month's feature takes us to the Marietta Queen of Hearts where I came across so many inspirations for the season.

Dealer MASS' booth draws me in every time I visit. Although I don't design my home in shabby chic, the style lends itself so appropriately for a wedding. No other time do I love lace than when it's associated with a wedding celebration.

 Don't you love the swag she has created above the mirror? To die! Hers is simple strips of vintage lace tied into a beautiful swag. Makes my heart flutter.

I love what these dealers have done with their vintage galvanized tub. This utilitarian piece has been upcycled into a padded stool with great storage. So clever!

I recently did a post showing how I used an antique leather suitcase as a picnic basket. I love incorporating vintage into everyday moments. Nothing adds personality like a touch of vintage.

Dealer MJE/SHB
One of my favorite ways to accessorize a wall is by using china. Adding a gilded frame around your collection really sets it off. I definitely want to do this in my home. So pretty.

Dealer BOW
I've seen lots of upcycled garden tools; however, this one takes the cake! I love how dealer BOW created a picture display by salvaging an old rake. It would also be a fun way to store seeds in your potting bench!

Okay, the rubber boot wall vase is way too cute!

Dealer KAY
And found glass bottles... yes, please.

This vintage medical cabinet once held a stretcher. I think it would be fabulous holding anything in my bath.

Ummm, it's a vintage birdcage, scale, & glass bottles in a holder. Need I say more? Love!
aluminum lawn chair via
Dealer RAY
I have a set of aluminum garden furniture with nylon webbing that has been stored away in a basement because I'm afraid to expose it to the elements. But the condition is nothing near to this vintage lawn chair with its beautiful original fabric. It's near mint and so mid-century! Do you see the price? Such a bargain. Want.a.mid.century
