Vintage Finds: Tickled Pink!
Hi Everyone! Today, I'm delighted to share with you a sampling of color filled vintage finds from a few of my recent treasure hunting adventures. It's exciting to find the sorts of home wares that I adore, and I also love the challenge of styling and photographing those items for you, both here and @undertheplumblossomtree on Instagram.
In deciding what to share this month, I realized that the three objects shown in the picture each had the color pink in common, and that I was captivated by how well they harmonized.
The blush pink Old Royal bone china teacup and saucer is a calm and stable element, compared with the more lively shades of pink in the Oriental dancing girl ceramic lamp base, and the vigorous saturated pinks in the stylized flowers of the Daher of England decorated tray.
Very soon, I plan on fitting hardware and a cute shade on this old ceramic base, and placing my new 'Chinoiserie' styled lamp on the bedside stand. And on a lazy morning in the not too distant future, there will be tea served in bed - in the pink Old Royal bone china cup, carried in on the Daher tray. What fun!
Do you enjoy styling, and using, your vintage finds? If so, please join me on Instagram at #collectandstyle. There are now over 1,000 images posted to the #collectandstyle gallery, and you can meet other like-minded creatives and have some fun. See you there!
