Dreamy afternoons spent with pretty thrifted goodies are rare these days for me...
but over the weekend I was able to have a little "me" time spent toodling with some recent finds.
I often laugh at my finds once I get them home; I have an unruly knack of shopping in color themes.
If you know me, you'll know I love vintage items.
I enjoyed this little vignette of thrifted finds a whole bunch, as it truly defines my personal taste in colors.
My home decorating color palette tends to venture into the:
worn vintage mustard
But it's what I like....& I can't stop liking it....so....I guess I'm stuck with it!
When I'm shopping for clothing....well....that can often be a different story.
Although when I think about it,
my closet tends to be a reflection of similar versions of these colorways;
blue being the base of almost every outfit with jeans for comfort!
I will now be working on loading up these little goodies to shelves & walls....with a few going to Etsy & a few heading to Grandiflora.
(see links to the right on the blog)
I found quite a lot of pretties (not all are pictured) so it will take some effort to do this!
I love it however, & am looking forward to the challenge.
Little vintage pots for fresh flowers, or trailing plants....
...sweet little prints to hide in those tiny tucked away spaces throughout ones' home...
most importantly....a little birdie box for keeping tidbits & treasures.
I love working with items which have a past....I also love to mix those items with new things to create a well balanced look.
A little bit past & a little bit present.
How about you?
Do you love vintage like I do?
Are you strictly vintage style?
Do you cringe at the thought of decorating with vintage?
What about new trends: mod, bright, pastels?
What about color palette?
Does your closet echo your home?
Just curious....I always enjoy hearing your thoughts; long or short!
Hope you had a great weekend....& hoping your week is filled with golden sunlit days, crisp nights, and cozy times with loved ones!
