Mason jars made into a pendant chandelier — how pretty. These are in my Pottery Barn catalog, just arrived, $129 for the set of five. Or: I bet we could find tutorials online to learn how to do this ourselves – safely, of course.
Susan Schneider of Shandells in Millerton, NY, can make a lamp out of Anything. She also has an exquiste collection of ephemera, which she transforms into objects like tissue boxes, night lights, matchbooks and lampshades, of course. Above: Vintage seed calogs from the 1800s and 1900s on a wood tissue box base, trimmed in copper. $48 from Shandell’s on etsy.
“Do You Live in A Town?” Colour Me wallpaper by Mini Moderns. I love this stuff. It comes in black-and-white and you color in everything with crayons. I MUST have a room of this (foyer? powder room? office? before I die.) And you KNOW that I am so partial to anything with a house in it.
Woah, just $14.50 for this mint-in-box Scranton Showers shower curtain from petuniapie on etsy.com. Will it last past 9 a.m. Eastern once it’s shown on the blog? Sorry, West Coasters.
Here’s another Scranton curtain – same seller – same price. Musta come from the same place.
Last time I was at Ron’s he had this wonderful vintage GE electric stove… It was in pristine condition. Oh, and it had a self-cleaning oven! Woah, how I wish. If it had been white, I would have bought it for my kitchen. I think he wanted $275. If you are interested: Google Berkshire County Used Furniture, Pittsfield, Mass. and call and see if it is still there, tell ’em I sent you.
Remember when I did all those posts about Sanderson’s reissuing a bunch of vintage wallpapers — eveyone loved those swallows… Well, at the time their PR folks sent me this vintage image. It’s from 1968, all wrapped in chintz. So cool… may I will have Erica Berger replicate me in this pose with some of my vintage fabric next time we do a photo shoot? We’ll have to leave my head free, though, too freaky otherwise.
Tone-on-tone graphic red wallpaper used as a backsplash paired with aquamarine cabinets in a 1963 Frigidaire ad. Hmmm, this is giving me ideas.… Dare I go this mid mod mad?
