Last week I went to the Sally Ann and happened upon this vintage Syroco shelf...I originally bought it to sell but now that it has been sitting here it's growing on me. It's backed with vintage scrolly wallpaper and I have found a spot where I'd like it to hang. (it is still sitting there - directly below that spot for a week now after telling hubby I'd like it there. Hmmm...)
He thinks it's kitschy but I know if I accessorize it right I could pull him over to the dark side.
I concede that there is a fine line between kitsch and cool....and I may very well be off on this one. What do YOU think?
I made the mistake of taking Wilbur to Ellie's soccer game Wednesday night. Of course the spot where we sat down on the grass was a mere 5 feet away from a Maltese with a very big attitude. Have you ever tired to subdue an excessively large and hyper dog who is DESPERATE to play with a diva Maltese? Wilbur - she's just not that into you! My arms are sore...
I am starting a new feature on my blog today called:
"I'm a Sucker for Good Packaging"
If you package something up really beautifully, I will buy it. Doesn't matter if I need it or not. Cuz that's-just-the-kind-of-girl-I-am.
Case in point - I fell in love with these old bonbon boxes from France. (had them on my site but they're already all sold out!) Didn't they know how to do it back then? Just think - wonderful little candies nestled into these lovely card boxes with golden raised script and a glass button elasticised closure.
This is 'throwing-the-gauntlet-down' good packaging! I may not be able to top it!
Have a great weekend everyone!
