Antiquing Fun & a Fabulous Find

I have been on the hunt for a vintage apple picking ladder (at a reasonable price) for a few years now. And last Sunday, it was found:) A delightful, but cold, Sunday morning was spent at the Aberfoyle Antique Market with some of my favourite ladies. Amazing to think we met just a year ago!

How pleased am I driving home with this fab find!?

The ladder now sits proudly against the wall in the living room holding the fur throws. I love the height of it and the wood looks lovely against the pink walls. What do you think?

side note: how cute is my sweet Hermann? 🙂

Oh, and see that wing chair there? Well, they are headed for a major update. I’ll be working on this project with the help of Tonic Living and J&J Made for a post over on Style at Home. (Click to read my previous Style at Home blog posts)

The chairs have a long history in my family – can’t wait to share the evolution!

    Heather! This is fabulous :) We recently scored a blanket ladder for our living room too and I adore it. I am a blanket addict and it helps me keep them in order when I'm not snuggled on the couch. Also, Hermann is too cute!

    I love the ladder. What a great find! I am so jealous of all the flea market finds you have! There isn't a ton of history here, most things are dated old, and not cool old.
