Our House so far in 2013.
All themed around the love of RETRO Yay!!!
I love love love retro
I just had to join…..so…
I picked up my camera and literally ran around our untidy house photographing the tidy bits….
So here are some bits of our retro inspired house (only the tidyish bits!)
If you are a regular follower you may have seen some before….but there are new ‘views’ too…..
On the wall and the ceiling……
Shelves…of course there has to be pyrex…..its retro!
more shelves more pyrex….
and on the window ledge…dish washer tabs in that tin!
and waiting for a chance to be restored to its former glory….
our 1950’s unit…more vintage than retro but pretty…..see the aprons on the back of the door?
Sitting room is just glimpses… as we have just ‘freshened up’ this room and I want to do a ‘before and after post’ soon!
I love yellow and black the largest vase above belonged to my grandparents the others I collected.
The large cat was given to my nan by my father when he was young…its very
precious to me although I broke years ago…..its patched up but I still cherish it.
More restorations by the very talented other half…..
The repainted glossy cupboard that houses my chance glass collection of handkerchief vases
and Dala’s there has to be old dala’s in a Retro House…
The hallway up the stairs
This sofa ‘died’ last year…so this is an old photo…
we are presently restoring an Ercol 1950’s studio couch to replace it….
more on that when its finished….
a more recent picture of the conservatory….
Sewing room..saving the best until last
Mine all mine..!!!
….just a few more glimpses as I will write a big post later…and include details
these two were taken today…..going to sort it later…needs to be a bit more minimal to work in….
these are older photos…
……my crochet stool topper and my button jars…
This is where I store all my lovely vintage rolls of wallpaper..
My bestest chair in the whole wide world….restored to utter gorgeousness by oh and recovered by me
Cost 4 pounds from boot fair couple of years ago!
Do not notice or look at the mess behind it.
and thats it…until later…..
Oh… I have just come back from Wimborne Market and have the best stash of vintage goodies to share with you next week?
Bestest as ever…
