salvage one

hi!  my oliveloaf design website is under construction

…stay tuned for that announcement & premier.

in the meantime – i thought start a blog to get things rolling

this is it – here we go!


here’s my first creative inspiration field trip report…

last weekend i visited salvage one/architectural elements & antiques

(1840 w. hubbard~chicago, il)

chicago’s oldest source for architectural salvage

their inventory is salvaged from buildings in chicago and elsewhere

you can even rent the joint out for an event

fun to wander around & explore all the odds & ends {although it made me sneezey!}


{stained glass}


{vintage print blocks}





{rusty iron figures}

{bathtub rehab ~ where sad bathtubs wait for a do-over}







{vintage seats}


{big letters}




a friend rummaged for these wood items to arrange into wall art…

my brain exploded when i discovered

that you can have your wedding & reception at salvage one!

if it wasn’t for the fact i my own wedding shindig

is in one primo-cool spot

i would have “wedding envy”…
