Vintage is good. Sometimes modern and quirky design makes my eyes tired… sometimes I need to see something with rust on it and southern charm ingrained (casualty of my upbringing?) in it.

While scanning a Design Sponge Sneak Peak of illustrator Nick Dewar’s California home I noticed this fantastic hook, which Nick reports is from Hook Lady.

I’m in love with the charm and rustic patina of these hooks. I especially love the horse hooks and the elegant mermaid door knocker!

I can see hanging picture frames suspended by fancy ribbon or wire, or even lining up a bunch of them on a wall as a coat rack. She even has worn down-looking metal signs that would be a perfect adornment to an outdoor patio or kitschy bar area.

Ughh… I need to buy a house. I have no place to hang these amazing hooks!
