Vintage Chip and Dip Bowl

Just found this at an estate sale in Chi-town. Looks even better in person. Viewed from the top it looks like a flower with the scalloped edges and middle bowl which is also scalloped. Really pretty rosa rugosa pattern in gold on the top. Perfect condition. Check it out at http://www.prairieflowervintage.etsy.com

Christmas in Summer

Christmas in Summer

Just added! Super cute vintage Lefton reindeer salt and pepper shakers. It seems odd to be talking about Christmas in August but these were so cute I just had to share.

Repurpose Anything

Repurpose Anything

We took an old brown desk and upcycled it into a white and blue table.

First we lacquered it in white, then modpodged with coordinating fabric and glued on trim. All for under $50. Sweet.

Daffodil Delight

Darling vintage daffodil bowl/dish. Perfect for serving dip at a party or jam when the girls come over for Sunday brunch.

Mr. Roger's Neighborhoods

Thanks to the recent popularity in the mid-century modern movement, folks with mid-century homes can retain the flavor of the past, yet utilize modern-day advancements in home design and decor. During the post-war years, home interiors, like the architecture of the time, moved toward a fresh, clean, pared-down attitude. Mid-century home interiors, spring-boarding off the modern influences of home appliances and furniture, prospered along with the era’s new mentality of form and function. Home interiors were intentionally designed to combine both the form of home’s exterior architecture with the function of the home’s interior footprint. Following are a handful of home interior ideas for those of us who appreciate the form and function of the mid-century modern movement without sacrificing warmth and coziness.

Do you prefer form over function? Function over form? Or both form and function? Tell me! Do tell!
