I "LOVE" retro/vintage items!...
just something about them stands out, and has a good bit more charm/character to me than the mass produced items that one can find for a dime a dozen at the big box stores...yep..I have been finding myself a lot more drawn to wanting to decorate/surround myself with lovely items from a "day gone by".
So..what fun it was when my family surprised me for Christmas with some darling retro/vintage finds to add to my collections that I am gathering for our "soon to be" new home!
I am planning on having jadeite aqua/green colored kitchen with lots of red and white accents, but with a 1950's style rooster/chicken theme....so I have been collecting 1950's style roosters/chickens for a little bit now.
And..then I treated myself to a few things I had had my eye on as well.
salt shakers with a
covered salt dish
Of course there were some other lovely gifts I received /not everything was "retro".(Special thanks to Mom,Mom and Dad W., Sis "E".,Sis."S"...many thanks and hugs..ya'll know what you did..and I thank you.:0)
So..I had a really lovely Christmas..and now some new to me ..."retro" fun items to use in the "soon to be" new home.
I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas as well.
