Kitchen Window II

i thought this blog would make decorating easier because i didn't have good ideas. now its hard because i don't know which good idea to choose. thank you for your good ideas.
i really, really like the idea of glass because of the sun. and i especially like the color wheel suggestion. i'm not good at free-form, this way i have a pattern to follow.
i also like the idea of herbs. especially since i saw this sign via design mom.

so as soon as i get back from puerto rico i will go shopping (unless i find something there by chance). i'm looking for small pots for the herbs or colored glass vases. dudes, i don't even freaking know where to shop for vintage stuff. could someone tell me? i live in-between provo and slc. thanks.

p.s. i don't really talk like that, i was just kidding about the dude and freakin lingo.

I know there are a few boutiques in Sugarhouse...but I am not sure either. You should come out tho the Alameda Flea Market. It is the best place on earth. (It is the first Sunday of every month.)

I can find about anything I'm looking for on ebay. I've also heard that Park City has some pretty cool shops (I plan on checking it out so I'll let you know if I come across anything).

My aunt actually gets a lot of her vases from DI, you have to go often and look for a while so as not to miss anything.
Also there is a vintage/antiques shop the exit after University Ave. (the exit is between Provo and Springville) The shop is in a huge warehouse and it is FILLED with awesome things. (My Aunt showed it to me) I can't remember what it's called exactly but there are two right next to each other and they're both called "_______ Antiques" or something like that. Anyway, I know my aunt has gotten a lot of her vases from there, and if you don't get any vases it'll be worth the trip anyway.
Sorry, I can't remember exactly the name or describe how to get there at the moment... I'll get back to you, because it really is a neat place.

All right last post, I promise. With the link I gave you scroll down to letter "I" click on the link then on the map click get directions "to here"... I think you can get the rest.

Sorry! I hope you enjoy going there if you get a chance.

On 300 S in SLC there are a lot of antique shops, and Retro Rose at
207 E Broadway
Salt Lake City, UT 84111
801-364-7979
has a lot of vintage glassware, as well as brightly-colored decor items you'll remember seeing on the Brady Bunch. The owners are really friendly and helpful, too, so if you know exactly what you're looking for, they can help you find it.

I am so addicted to ebay for buying vintage stuff. You can do a search for sellers in your area and if it's a pickup only item, you can sometimes find really great deals!

Also around here:
The Planted Earth Floral on State Street in Orem. They have some vintage dishes/accessories.
Two antique stores on Center Street in Provo. The Cat's Cradle has some antique fiesta ware, and those are some fun colors that would look great in any windowsill.
