Remember how I wished for a trolley and then (miraculously) found a vintage shoe trolley at the Brimfield market? Here's something I'm hoping to find on the next flea market hunt: a vintage French brioche tin with a lovely aged patina. Look how this cake tin was transformed into a recycled pendant shade! I love it. We can't do much about lighting in our rental right now, but if I found one of these, I'd save it for that someday dream home.
I scanned this photograph from one of my favorite home books, Simple Home (by Mark and Sally Bailey, published by Ryland Peters & Small.) The photography is by Debi Treloar. The book is full of inspiration with an industrial vintage meets recycled style.
