Pickled Hutch Picks

I have a thing for images of women diving. I'm not sure why that is, really, except that they just look strong and elegant, and the idea of diving from so high off a little board or a patch of land is exciting to me (that is being someone who used to back down the ladder of the high dive when I was little). I used to keep a picture of a woman diving off a cliff side in my cube at my old 9 to 5 job. I can't tell you how many times I looked at her, wishing I were her diving and not me sitting in my cube. I think it would be fun to collect images of women diving and hang the framed collection in a bathroom. I could start my collection with this one above from the Pickled Hutch where Lisa has a great selection of old photos. Another great idea for your old photos (or a mix of yours and found photos) is this great idea from SFgirlbybay.

The prices vary, but are about $1-4 each.

Silver sugar, which I'd use as a vase or cotton ball holder in the bathroom. $9

Statue of 3 women with one missing a head, which just gives her more character! $95

The Pickled Hutch is an antique store in San Francisco that I love. Every week I pick three items to post on my blog that I especially like. The Pickled Hutch is located at 2021 Palmetto Avenue, Pacifica, CA. Open Wed. to Sun. 11 - 6. PH 650-359-2000. Ask for Lisa.
