Vintage Farmhouse Decor Inspiration ~ Which Is Your Favorite?!

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you may have visited the town of Poulsbo, Washington, which is nicknamed "Little Norway." Although it's just a short ferry ride away from Seattle, I had actually only been there once before returning this past weekend with my family. 

There was a little corner bookshop that our boys loved. They are each into different things and enjoy finding books about their interests. I think I have my husband to thank for that! ;)

And I found a couple of inspiring vintage home decor shops that had one-of-a-kind pieces and were styled in a way that gets your creative juices going. So, I thought I'd share some of the things I saw with you... and see what it is that you like best! (Sources are listed at the end of the post.)

1. Pigeon Hole Cabinet #1: Okay. So I have always called these cubbies. Turns out, they are called Pigeon Hole Cabinets. The inspiration behind the name? Apparently it goes back to the times when racing pigeons were held in small compartments. Who knew? 

2. Pigeon Hole Cabinet #2: This one really caught my eye! Can't you picture it in a big mud room, play room, garden shed or even mounted on a wall as a bookshelf?

3. This is not just any old FARMHOUSE sign! It's frame is an old salvaged window frame, complete with original hardware. I loved the scale - and just happen to have the perfect place for it. Unfortunately, it was not my birthday, anniversary, Mother's Day or Christmas. Moving on...

4. Painted Cable Spools. We have some spools in our barn. I love the natural weathered finish of ours... but these made me consider white...hmmm...

5. Feed Store Sign: Simple, clean, rustic and cute.

6. Antique Chippy Arched Screens (not to mention the beautiful weathered white pew beneath it!): The seller shared that they came from a church in Alabama, so now I love them even more. Where would you put them?

7. This time-worn cafe chair with Flower Market Sign caught my eye! Everything in this little shop was dreamy. I felt like I had ducked into a little European shop.

So, If you had to pick just one of these things, what would it be?
