Last year I bumped into the “Mother lode” of vintage chairs! Found three of these old metal chairs and each had a varying patina and look. Two of the chairs I kept with the weathered look. Simply applied one coat of sealer to each chair to protect the patina. I painted the third chair in a […]
This is a cute retro cowboy lampshade that we have in the kids farm guest room. I love the look of the 50’s material. It is so much fun that adorable accessories are available on the market today. Glad that vintage 50’s is in!
Look at this precious tin vintage plaid picnic basket a dear friend gave me! Imagine what a lovely surprise it was to find this under my Christmas tree. It is going to fit in perfect with my other vintage farm tin boxes/baskets from the 50s. I just have a few, but this is bigger than my others […]
I have a passion for nearly everything from the 50s. I really love the antique vintage tin picnic baskets and vintage bread boxes. Here are two examples of the bread boxes. I just have a couple of these, but would love to have lots of them! Saw a darling picture in magazine where they had stacked […]
I am crazy about “junk”, but it must be cute junk! Well… at least cute to me. This is a baby blue vintage enamel pail that I found at a antique store. It sits in my bedroom and serves as a magazine holder for all my Texas Highways magazines and it is one of my favorite things! […]
I love a good bargain! Got this old 50s metal stool at a junk store for $2. It was rusty and one leg broken. A little work on leg & almond spray paint and it is good as new…nearly. Next summer it will make a cool plant stand on my porch.
This cute green cowboy material is actually from the 1950s! It is the real thing and not a new retro fabric. I found this in an antique store. I actually knew more than one person who had this fabric in the 1950s in the small town where I grew up!
This is a cute blanket throw in retro cowboy. I love these materials. I would not want an entire room in them, but a piece here and there as an accent is nice.
I really love all the cowboy retro materials from the 40s & 50s! I can remember when growing up actually seeing these materials in houses. Anyway, found some material at a local flea and made into a pillow. It just gives me a good feeling to look at it!
