That's me delia! I can't pass em up, they are soooo much cooler than anything new! Straight talkin' thanks! I esp love it in the Summer when I use my more "tropical" dishes. Stay tuned for my flamingo cannisters!

I love the way you mix and match. Mom was like that, but for some reason, I got the "gotta match" gene or something. I keep her old bedroom much like she had it, with a mostly pink color scheme, but a little bit of everything she loved (roses, angels, dolls, pretty things, books, perfume bottles etc etc). She even mixed Country style with Colonial and shabby chic and trendy. Whatever she liked, she bought!

But the rest of my rooms are strict matching colors. Well, or trying to be ha ha ha.

Oh hey, I have that same love bird wall sconce! I love it when vintage stuff turns up in other places! Cute items.

Thanks Amber, great minds think alike!and, 50's atomic, I go through phases. Sometimes I match and lately I've been trying to mix. One thing that I saw that got me in this mode is the Retro Redheads website. I love the way they mix colors on their tablecloth pages. The prettiest was red and turquoise! It looked great!
