Hooks Galore

Have you been to Laurie Anna's
Vintage Home blog?

She has a shop in Canton Texas,
which is only open 4 days each
month, on the first weekend of
the month, for Trade Days.

We were down there last Friday,
and I bought some more hooks.

I already have too many, but

I couldn't pass them up...
they're just so cute!

Just a metal tube with two rounds
on each end with numbers!

You know it was the numbers
that got me, right?

The bottom round has three holes
to screw them into a board or wall.

I thought they might look good on
this vintage board I already had.

I took off the old hooks when
I painted the board a while back.

The old hooks were too rusty to
hang anything on.

--Real rust--

Not fake rust like these...

Anyway, the board got painted a
while back, but it's still waiting to
get some dark wax and distressing
while I've been looking for new
hooks for it.

I bought some other numbered
hooks last Friday too.
Laurie Anna's only had them
with two big numbers --

Four Hundred Fifty-Six
A Hundred Twenty-Three

Odd right?
I bought two of each number for
another project I had in mind.

That night I was thinking about
the fact they only had those two
strange numbers, when it hit me.


1 - 2 - 3

4 - 5 - 6

Yes. I was that dumb!

They don't allow picture-taking in
the store, but you can see her
shop, and Laurie Anna's lovely
farmhouse too, on their blog.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm just a loyal shopper and these are
my opinions only. I received no
compensation for this post.


  1. Cute. What does Bill say about them?

    1. He felt they did a crappy paint job and said he could fix them up for me by spray painting them with a perfect coat of paint. No thanks Bill, I like them crappy and all.

  2. Oh- I just love them. They are so cute and I really like that they are 123 and 456. lol xo Diana

  3. I love the "last night I was thinking", doesn't it come to you at the strangest times. I've been trying to convince a classmate that I need this fancy board she doesn't know what to do with, I'm not sure where I'd put it, but, hooks sound good. Love it.

  4. Great little find! I hope to make it to Canton sometime. Enjoy your day! ~Ann

  6. What fun hooks! There must be a significance to the odd numbers?;)

  7. I went last month too! Trying to decide whether or not to jump in my car and run over there today.
