oatmeal & rust...

my friend Jami at freckled laundry

is doing a series of posts on

identifying vintage design styles...

she inspired me to identify my our style!

let's start with...colour...

warm tones with rust & greige

oatmeal w/ cinnamon & coffee...

(so most of you know i am 59... i {LoVe} this shoe...

i once had a collection of many like this and

 wore them with hip hugger bell bottoms...

oh what a feeling!)

~ ooops back to O & R~

 the photo, from...Anthropologie...

the best at

mixing textiles, textures, finishes,

old & new...truly EcLecTic magic!

~ and ~

the place that makes me feel like

 i'm dancing...on 42nd street!

Good Morning...pretty wall clock that we purchased in
Alabama when we were newly weds (around 1974)!

mr dreams and i have been collecting antique

accent pieces and art for over 37 years now.

we just cannot abandon our keepsakes

and memories. so i guess what i am saying is

it's going to be fun carrying our 70's, 80's & 90's

acquisitions into this 2011 up cycle!

our Tony Turpin d. and i
spent our life savings on this (220.00)...we were in our 20's
way before kids... (no, we weren't hippies).

it's a perfect depiction of old meeting new...

so it's the hallmark of our

newly defined...
