A Sad Day and Some Things I Love

June 26, 2009 at 4:00 pm (Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

What a sad day today is.  Words cannot describe how much Michael Jackson will be missed.  He is such a huge talent and has always been a big part of my life. 

 

I really didn’t think anything was fitting to post about on such a sad day, but then decided to pay a tribute and then cheer up with some things that I am loving. 

 

I love clear furniture, I love lucite.  Need I say more?

downersI know these are tiny pictures, but I am totally wanting these cookie jars!  Hilariously funny.

I also know that this bowl is a bit sick, but also freakishly adorable.  Tony loves zombies, so I thought he’d like this!

This red retro lamp would look perfect in my kitchen!

Mid Century Bug

June 5, 2009 at 11:04 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I have it- the mid century bug- that is!  I am usually into vintage and antique just a bit older than MCM style, but lately I have been crazy for some of the furniture styles.  I’d like to think that I am a good enough stylist to incorporate a bit of many styles to make an eclectic, yet cohesive home.  A few things that I am loving:

The Marcel Bruer Wassily leather lounge chairs are calling my name!

This Barwa lounger would be so comfy on a patio or in the backyard, even better if it wasn’t purple!

This guy would be perfect painted black and sitting next to my new-old patio set in the backyard.  Then I would have a place to lounge in the sun!  (I am actually really thinking about this one!)

This is my all time favorite couch.  I want one someday so bad I can smell the leather!  😉

I love these Platner style outdoor chairs.  Actually, I like anything wire mesh or Bertoia-esque. 

An a bit of an older note- I am still on a hurried hunt for a couple of these old style metal lawn chairs.  Ebay is a bit too pricey, so if anyone out there knows of any for sale…keep me posted!

Any style, any color, as long as they are similar to eachother, because I am going to paint them red anyway!

Also, do you notice a trend with me and chairs?  And currently with me and outdoor furniture?  I really need to expand what I look at! 😉

Mini Chair Love

May 12, 2009 at 9:42 am (Inspiration) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I came across this little lucite chair and table on Ebay (thinking it was life-sized).  Did your Barbies have neat furniture like this?  I think mine are jealous!

 

Way cool vintage chair, even in a mini size, but I’d take the life-size set! 🙂

Owls Make A Comeback

January 29, 2009 at 4:34 pm (Tid Bits) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I recently found a necklace in a box of childhood stuff that I used to use as dress-up jewelry when I was a kid. The necklace is a large owl. It was so weird and interesting when I was little that I had to get the necklace out and do some research. Come to find out, the necklace was very popular in the 70’s. Many designers had versions of the owl pendant necklace, each looking a bit different. The sad part, however, is that my owl is missing it’s feet. The parts are connected with rings, and mine has fallen apart. I have the body, but need to reattach it. Maybe with some more searching I can find his poor missing feet. Here is what mine currently looks like.

I think the necklace is so cool even without the body that I am determined to wear it! Here is a vintage owl with his whole body intact, but in a more silevr color:

A little more research led me to find that these necklaces are regaining popularity, both vintage and reproductions. Etsy has some versions for sale:

Ebay also has many versions for sale:

So, go ahead, jump on this owl bandwagon- again! 🙂
