Modern Day Vintage Lifestyle Goodies

Hello darlings, this is just something fun I was thinking about last night. We all know that there are touches of the past in everything we see in today's markets, but some items are more encompassing of the past than others. Below are just some fun little extras to add some flare to our every day lives, little touches of past.

Auto Expessions 3D Cherry Air Freshener
(this is ADORABLE, perfect for the rockabilly gal in you)

Silk Mums
(We cannot forget to keep
some silk flowers around the house, mums are my all time favorite)

1950s-Inspired Quilt
(This evokes a beautiful guest room quilt from the 40's-50s. Its a quilt, but printed rather than stitched, modern advances of course)


Better Homes & Gardens
(Founded in 1922, still available and amazing to this day!)

2. Boots Cold Cream

3. MAC Russian Red Lipstick ( My favorite matte lipstick)

4. False Lashes (perfect daily wear lashes)

dream rides of a vintage gal

A girl has to dream sometimes right? Well I find myself dreaming of what sweet ride I would love to caught cruisin' Route 66 in....and I am pretty sure that a 1952 Cadillac would do the trick for me! Wow!!!

Alright ladies...a HENRY J...I mean we cannot go wrong with a 1951 shiny blue Henry J!! The unique detailing on this car is unmatched in my book. I cannot imagine how awesome it would feel to drive around in this classic piece of art!

What are your dream rides?!

Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree!!!

No Christmas tree would be complete without a Lucy ornament. A collectors ornament from my childhood, I cannot help but include on my tree (not just because of my extreme I Love Lucy obsession.)
Angels are always welcome on my tree as well, especially snow baby angels. I must say Lucy and my snow angel make up my two favorite Christmas ornaments, and I can certainly thank my grandmother for them. Grandmothers always know the best gifts to give. :-)

What are your favorite ornaments?!

Vintageous Atomizers

Happy Monday!!

I found these gems in two local antique store on Saturday evening. They were a steal, at only $6.50 and $11.00 and they are 1950s original atomizers. I filled them with some pleasant scents I had lying around, but I cannot express how much I am adoring them!! The white one is etched with two roses on each side and the amber one is hand-painted from Italy with golden dots!
