The Assembly Line–Product Lineup

To round out the nook, we opted for a simple sofa that can be converted to a bed for extra guests.
It’s all about the Little Things! Yesterday: A vintage potato chip stand. Today: A fun way to display family photos, ephemera and artwork.
The parrot is from Rockett St. George–www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk/, The number 5 was purchased at Kuhl-Linscomb in Houston and the vintage mask was a flea market find.
I found these vintage metal signs at the Round Top Antiques festival last spring.
I love rusty, old signs. This 1962 Texas license plate will add a quirky note to the space.
Ice Queen Crown / handmade via etsy. I have this little gem wrapped around a long vase filled with old photographs.
