Where did September go? Apparently gone in a flash and October is going just as fast…slow down please! Or maybe I need to slow down?? Either way it’s the middle of October and I realized that I did not do my roundup of my favorite “Pins” on Pinterest for September and since I’m here I might as well do October as well.
Lets take a peak at all the goodies I have been saving to my boards lately…
When I saw this picture I just KNEW I had to preserve it for forever on my ‘Awesome Vintage Pictures‘ board. I mean seriously…how do you not smile when you see this couple?
About the Picture: My grandmother Eileen and her husband Nick (Edwin J. Nickel) at the Mather home in Santa Ana, November 22, 1956
Hello Vintage McDreamy! What a handsome sailor during WW2.
Sequined stockings with bowknots-1949! I will take 10 pairs please!
I don’t think this photo shoot went as planned for these 3 lovely ladies. Such a fun photo and I’m sure after it happened they must have laughed and laughed about it.
I am by no means an expert on vintage hairstyles. I have like 2 or 3 styles I do well and then the rest is wishful thinking BUT that does not stop me from posting lots of wonderful styles and images to Pinterest to help me dream of WHAT I might be able to do one day. Here is a couple of droll worthy styles.
I would love to do even part of this for next years VIVA. How fun is this 50s Rockabilly style?
I also pinned a few fun vintage advertising pieces this last month and half.
Can I just wake up with her hairstyle? Please?!
Imagine that, 3 phones in one house! Times have changed, haven’t they?
The tagline is funny: “Balbriggan Pajamas-To warm up your night life”. Today’s “Night Life” is a bit different then the night life in this ad, very different.
And of course if you at all follow my blog on a regular basis you know that I love my vintage clothing so of course I added many many outfits to my board “My Vintage Style“. Here are a few of my favorites:
1940s Vintage Rayon Dress: I would have taken a rib or two out to have been able to wear this dress. Stunning.
Even though I’m not sure if I can pull off yellow, that did not stop me from admiring how absolutely fantastic this 1940s evening gown is.
The pop of green on this 1940s gown is the best!
I am currently debating on doing a total apartment overhaul as I’m just tired of the same old same old in my place (ssshh don’t tell my husband), so I have been saving ideas for how to turn my tiny apartment into a mid-century dream. Here are some of the items I would love to have in my apartment.
How fun are these 1950s Guitar Shadowboxes?
These mid-century teak switch plates would 100% turn my boring standard apartment plates into works of art!
Lastly, this “Potting shed” is about the size of my apartment so I will just copy this design and be done with it 🙂
And there are some of the highlights! I hope you enjoyed taking a peak into things that catch my fancy and if have some fun images you want to share with me, please do! Have a super day and happy pinning 🙂
