jens pick, ( her ) vintage ladder




my garage sale find.
built in 1908...gorgeous hardware+ exactly what I have had in mind for the last 2 years {oh, how I love when I can mark something off of my 'searching for' list!}
It is a piece of vintage greatness!

Love the ladder, I collect them, but the bigger question is what is that throw? Forgive me if it was in an older post, I couldn't find it.

Just added you to my blogroll :)

The throw was a cozy little something that I found last year at Indigo Books....I love the graphic styling, but especially adore its softness!...it is perfect for cuddling up with a good book and a cup of tea.
