Some things from the last week:
*Detail of Vintage Wooden Sign in our Etsy Shop.
*Large Ironstone Urn in our Etsy Shop, perfect for holding umbrellas.
*View of Asbury Park from the Ocean Grove boardwalk. We are thinking of those who lost their homes today in an early morning fire. A heartbreaking loss for our little town.
*Cozy front porch in Ocean Grove. We are feeling both sad for the loss of some of our town’s historic houses and thankful that no one was hurt today.
*Post Cards to the President. I send these often, addressed to the White House. I know he will likely never read them, but I use them as sort of therapy now.
*Lemon, Lemon, Lemon Cake for Josie’s Birthday. I used a version of this lemon poppyseed cake and this lemon frosting, along with lemon curd from Trader Joe’s. Our backyard hellebores bloomed just in time to use for decoration.
*More Liberty of London. I have a bit of an addiction.
Stay cozy and have a great weekend!
We have a bunch of new listings up in our Etsy shop. These pieces are great for brightening up cloudy winter days:
* Antique Ironstone Tureen – Has a lovely blue tint, octagonal shape and was made around the 1880s. The tureen is still sturdy and ready to be used again.
*Five Vintage Children’s Pillow Cases – Each has a different handmade detail.
*Set of Unused Vintage Linen Tablecloth and Napkins – These ten napkins and tablecloth still have their original “Made in Belgium”labels and are made of beautiful quality linen.
*Paint-by-Number Winter Scene – The colors of this little painting are bright and calm.

We have been gathering lots of vintage and antiques the last few weeks and posting them to our Etsy shop. I am loving the color of these silver metals. The Car Letters and House Numbers are such great graphic shapes. I love how the font style tells a story about the era they came from. The letters from automobiles practically scream style and speed, while the older house numbers seem neat and pretty, but also practical and simple. These pieces look great in a group on a mantel, and I like how their shapes and lines play off of each other. These Antique Coin Silver Spoons make me smile. They were made in the 1850s in Haverhill, Massachusetts. They are monogrammed on the back and were used for many, many years by the same family. I imagine the spoons being used at the family table and lovingly cleaned and polished. The smallest spoon is only 3 5/8″ long and would have probably been used to spoon bits of salt. So sweet! Here are their pretty monograms:
We are looking forward to spring and green and, (just as importantly), stoop sale weather! Just one more week of winter! Keep your eyes open for more vintage treasures coming soon.

Hello and happy First Week of the Year! I hope you are all weathering the crazy cold in a cozy spot. We have been staying warm inside, and staying busy posting new vintage finds in our Etsy shop. (I am having a really hard time not sneaking the two sets of juice glasses into our own cabinets). I will be putting up new listings this week, so stay indoors and keep checking back for fresh treasures!
We have been busy listing some new floral finds on our Etsy shop. I love these metal Toleware flowers! They were made in the 1940s and 1950s, often in Italy. They were inexpensive at the time, and the colors are still vibrant today. The hooks would be adorable in a child’s room.
Anyone who knows me knows that I cannot walk by a stoop sale or drive by a flea market without stopping to take a look. Well, we here at Domestic Space are excited to announce the addition of vintage treasures to our Etsy shop! We will be updating our shop with fresh finds as they come in, and I will post alerts so our readers can be the first to know. Let us do dusty digging and so you don’t have to. We hope you will enjoy shopping our new curated collection of flea market finds as much as we enjoy finding them!
