In my manic organizing mode I tackled out guest room last week. I moved every piece of furniture to a new place, vacuumed and dusted!! Bill asked if I was okay! (I don't dust often.)
The bedroom is painted a light (I refuse to call it Carolina) blue. I decided I wanted a blue/aqua/green midcentury looking room.
Here's what I have so far by mixing semi-new and vintage pieces.
The headboard was Bill's when a kid. He carved his name on it but did not get in trouble! The bedspread was my [Grand]Mama's in the 50's. Ignore that TarHeel Ramses on the bed. It's for Grand daughter Aubree. The silhouette is Bill in 1959!
Books, books and more books. Some antique, most not. Really old games - Risk, Trouble and a repro Operation. One of my Great Aunt's quilts is covering a 1978 Big Bunny who is sitting in an orange woven chair just underneath my "ancient" Clemson Tigers frisbee. And the yarn stash that's part of De-stash 2010!
Another 1960's lamp on a 50's night table beside the bed my [Grand] Mama bought from sears in the early 60's for me! It is soooooo old and soooooooooo comfy! A couple of those pillows have been with me since the early 70's, others there are nekkid and need covers!
See! Nekkid pillows! And a really cool picture made out of itty bitty rocks. There's desk somewhere in there.
Yepper, my first phone. Still works too - hee hee. I can still call Smokey the Bear and seems I called Santa on it when I thought my little brother was misbehaving.
Another bad pic - sorry. Our CD collection with Barbies on top. And a Madame Alexander Alice in Wonderland.
My real Vintage Barbies are not on display yet. But how about that case? Cool huh?
