Spring pink and blue

I don't think I have ever loved pink and blue more than I do right now. I had that red phase, but honestly I really have loved pink and blue since I was a little girl. These 1950s shades are my favorite and they seem to be pretty popular too.


These are vintage cars my dad put together...

Everything vintage, everything made-in-America. That is my goal these days.

  2. I'm loving it too Anita. The cars are cute and I've been thinking of digging out my husband's old toy cars from the attic.

  5. Isn't it strange how we can completely go in the other direction and fall in love with it? I too am loving these new colors but you have done an amazing transformation in your house with this new direction. I love it!

  6. Lovely spring post Anita, the jar is special and so pretty. The chaise looks so pretty in front of all the light. What a great idea and goal. It is getting harder to find made in America, that is why I love using my Fiesta dishes my mother gifted. The cars are adorable too!

  12. How simply lovely! I, too, am a big fan of re-using, re-purposing and utilizing what you have on hand(like the backyard cuttings).
