August 24, 2011Plastic Reindeer + Painted Wooden Mushrooms = Happiness
It’s amazing what ridiculous stuff makes me happy.
I was recently moving things around in my craft room after some major alterations and reorganizing (pics coming soon!) when I stumbled upon a little plastic bag filled with mini-plastic Christmas wonders.
It’s kinda silly how happy these little things made me. Not to mention the amount of time spent arranging them so I could photograph them just right. Time in which I could have probably done more organizing, truth be told.
But looking at these guys reminded me of why I really love vintage stuff. The colors. The whimsy. The uniqueness of fun designs that you just can’t find for sale today.
It also reminded me that my craft room is overflowing with examples of vintage whimsy. Literally.
“Help us! We are being suffocated by love!”
So, more things have been posted on the blog store Mid-Century Mine, which is great stuff that I would love to keep, if only I had the room!
Actually, these gorgeous navy Mandel’s Skyscraper heels are being listed by Sara in AZ, and I am totally in awe of these.
“Awe” as in “Awwww…I wish these were my size (They are a 6.5)!
This adorable Marushka sailboat print is my contribution to the store this time around. I recently put up a TON of vintage artwork in my craft room (I’ll post pics soon! I swear!) but my Marushka sailboat prints, all three of them, didn’t make the cut. The other two will be listed very soon!
So, I’ve confessed that little pieces of molded plastic make me happy. What unusual or crazy vintage piece makes you guys happy??? Come on, share with us. You know you want to!
