The title pretty much sums it up....this is what I have acquired for myself over the past few weeks.
Meet my glorious new light fitting!
It's mine by default, and free; it was intended for the shop, being a glorious 60s original glass-panelled beauty...unfortunately one of the panels smashed in transit, so I get to keep it, yay!
I've had it sitting around for a couple of months but finally fixed it; as usual, anything for myself takes a while to get fixed. Please excuse the fuzzy pic, I couldn't keep my hands still enough with the camera at such a height.
50s plastic salt and pepper set
Retro print, many of you will recognise this one.I like the fact that it has some colour loss around the edges, I think it adds to the rustic theme.
Awesome 50s magazine rack, in excellent condition, just needs white ball feet if I can find them.
it fits in with my taste for black and white stuff too, yay!
Two 1960s embroidered pictures
I know this needs a shade and quite a bit of work, but to me this is a fabulous atomic lamp!
The red part simply slides out of the base, so I can repaint the whole thing a different colour...which I'll do when I decide what colour I want it to be.
Lastly, a saucer or coolie chair, child-sized and of course perfect for VB! As you can see it's already in the lounge room, adding to the 50s look I'm slowly creating.
Yes, slowly....but I'll get there one day!
What 50s beauties have you bought lately??
