Featured Artist: Jane Peet

Today we welcome Jane Peet to our blog. She is a sweet soul that I met.....yes....on Instagram. I love following her stories and her treasure hunting journey. I think you will agree that she is one of those people that you just want to have as your friend. And....oh my...what a wonderful eye she has for vintage items and photography. Here is what Jane had to say about her work. 

I want to thank Deb for extending this invitation.  As I ponder what to say I feel humbled and honored to be here.

I am a Vintage Dealer turned visual storyteller.  Over the last several years I have done countless shows and have a permanent location in the largest antique mall in the south.

After my husband built our barn I started to dream of slowing down a bit.

Gone was the extensive inventory and the monthly three-day show, allowing for more time to explore a new vision I had in mind.

I started to think about photographing my vintage finds.  As a dealer I travel the country looking for unique & often one of a kind treasures.  While these are ideal for home décor I also feel like they are ideal for still life photography.

There is nothing like the patina of a time worn piece and the feelings it can evoke in others with almost no or very few words.

As you follow along you will see pieces that call our house home and pieces that are for sale.  

I do this to give my followers a glimpse into my personal style & the story behind it.

Photography has opened the doors to items I may have overlooked in the past.   I now shop with styling a photo in mind.  The voile you often see me use has become a favorite.  It is timeless and with one toss it gives my photographs softness and adds texture.

At some point I will retire the antiques that are not in my personal collection.  My dream is to one day see my vintage treasures gracing other people’s beautiful photos.

With that in mind, I have held back on reopening my online shop…gathering and thinking what others may be interested in.

My hope is that when you read a little bit about me it inspires you to listen to your heart.  As my journey takes a turn I can tell you that I don’t see the whole staircase, but I have faith in taking the first step.
