Roost at the Camas Vintage Street Faire
Today I heard the magic words "I'll take the kids, have a great time"... I love when my husband whispers those sweet nothings, because they are EVERYTHING to me. I primped, adorned my hair with my long black w/white polka dot scarf, grabbed my black + white striped tote and headed to my lil' downtown Camas for the Vintage Fair. My first stop was at my favorite Caffe Piccolo Paradiso for an iced soy latte [i'm doing soy now because i can't handle the dairy while on my clinical trial,but that's another post]. I met up with my favorite chica Leah + her sister Krista [yes it can be confusing so she's KK and I'm Krista Colvin]. Immediately I spotted this vintage yet totally Modern Deco vase set. I think Leah needs it for her bathroom counter to place all her hair products in, I mean "hide" all her product. but she didn't bite. #canyouseemyreflection+mypolkadotscarf
I thought this hamper was adorable... in fact it would be so dang clever to have it in the corner of a master bedroom to collect all your bed pillows at night. Don't you think?! What about using for all the plush animals your child can't live without... After seeing this pillow, it haunted me and I had to go back an hour later and buy it for my living room :)
This vignette caught my eye...why not stack a small dresser on top of a vintage suitcase. It works for me. I wonder how long a petunia would last inside my house... It looks so pretty sitting there.
I love these glass domes... I hadn't thought of using one to drape my jewels over, but it would work fabulously. I also picture having 3 in various sizes and changing out what's in them by season. So Christmas there could be some cute santa or miniature Christmas tree.... hmmm I may have to seriously consider doing something like this.
I haven't taken pictures of some of my other finds... maybe I'll do that tomorrow and show how I integrate vintage with my modern furniture creating what the designer world deems 'transitional'. I like to think it's where my past meets my present. Where vintage inspiration meets my modern lifestyle. I do know it's what makes me smile as I cozy into my couch or walk through a room...
