Living with Vintage Things
I am so happy to be guest posting today for Laurie. I've admired her blog and of course her store for quite awhile so it was indeed an honor to be asked.
Sit on a vintage couch.
Warm my feet at a vintage fire.
(well not really a fire...a little warmth from the candles when lit)
And I eat at a vintage table. But I love some modern colors and some new things thrown in too. I thought today...I'd talk about some things I have been drawn to in the past...
Art Nouveau and Art Deco figures.
My first Art Nouveau/Deco purchase was a pair of bookends. I'd say these lean more towards Art Nouveau and would date from 1910 - 1930. They are bronze and were bought for a mere $20 at a flea market about 20 years ago. Today to replace them...they'd cost me $300 - $500.
Love her dress and hair.
Another favorite of mine....I saw this lamp/clock at a flea market in Atlanta and new I could not live without it.
This definitely is more Deco.
And this beauty was found on Ebay. This one is definitely more Art Nouveau in style. All soft flowing lines whereas the Art deco style is a bit more modern and has more structure.
Thanks, Laurie for letting me show off a little of my collection today.
