Vintage Photo – Some Fabulous Curtains

My grandfather was a photographer for the Associated Press, and he was good at his job. Consequently, because he was good at it and he loved it, he was called upon to photograph tons of occasions other than newspaper news. Much of the time he would photograph weddings, birthdays and church functions.  And he was a hoarder, so he kept everything! Because of this I have scads and scads of boxes filled with vintage photos. 

The photos are an absolute joy to look through. Partly because of his skill and my pride at having an artistic grandpa, but also because I love vintage!  The clothes, the hair, the food, the houses. All of it fascinates me. So I have picked out some great shots for you, starting with this angry looking baby. Baby Gifts

That baby looks pretty ticked off, even with all that stuff!  But did you check out the curtains in the background? 

curtainsLove them! I wish I could get my hands on some of that fabric right now….

    We deal with mid-century modern furniture, so we’ve come across a few sources for other vintage items. If you’re looking for great vintage fabric, you should check out UrbanBurp http://www.urbanburp.com and if you’re looking for wallpaper check out Bradbury http://www.bradbury.com

    We recommend them!

    I hate to say this, but I think I still have two pair of these curtains…I don’t think I gave them away….they are both about 84″ long…are you interested? They are creamy colored with blue designs…

    I also have seven of the Westinghouse Sputnik bulbs you had to search for….
