MR P AND HIS BISCUITS - store display

We know you ladies have been wondering about the man of the house, Mrs. P's honey do, her partner in crime and all things vintage. 

Well the truth is Mr. P does have his own interest in time
warn, vintage items, they just happen to be of the guy variety.
This week in The Great Adventures of Mrs. P we bring to you
 Mr. P and his office space.

Have a look around at all the vintage guy things Mr P collects.
Buckets and boxes, wood and metal, gears and everything 
industrial feeling. I'm loving the Caribou Railway Art and
wish I had wall space for it myself.

 He has a galvanized bucket for keeping tad poles, sinker
 bags, an old fishing tackle box, car advertising and his
 favorite is trunks. When he and the Mrs. are out antiquing
 they often play a game to see who finds the better vintage
trunk purchase.

He wins more times than she, as it would seem he has the
 right eye for old leather, vintage tin hardware, and he always 
finds the perfect size trunk to fit the next space.

Another item he has equal passion for is old labelled crate wood.

Back in the day, labels were stenciled on crated goods and
 when the crate was emptied and no longer needed the wood
 found its way into other furniture, like this storage box make
 with old Uneeda Biscuit crate wood.

Interestingly enough I was in a Mr. P mood and felt we had to
look up some information on this Uneeda Biscuit box. I found
out prior to 1898 crackers were sold loosely packed in barrels.
Not a very fresh way to package crackers! Uneeda Biscuits
 were developed at the turn of the century by The National 
Biscuit Company, AKA Nabisco and were packaged in a new
system of inter-folded wax paper and cardboard to keep them
fresher. Who knew reading a decorating blog would get you a
history lesson on a snack food. 

Mrs. P chose the burlap drapes and Mr. P picked the
 industrial candle lantern, it resembles Restoration Hardware a tiny bit eh???

The room came together for us quite well and it looks even
 more amazing in person, so be sure to stop in to see it for
 yourself in the next 2 weeks. If there is something in the
 display you would like to buy get in there sooner.

Here is a recap of all the rooms we have featured from Mrs. P's home this summer
