Part Two: Aqua Love~Vintage Heaven!

Part 2: Aqua Love ~ Vintage Heaven!

If you missed Part 1 you can view here. It was exciting to be featured on: Wow Us Wednesday and Potpourri Friday. Thank you Kim and Honey. 

Bookcase in the hallway filled with collections.

There are so many layers of "eye candy"to explore everywhere. I love the metal flower sconce on the wall!
She has "a thing" for clocks.

Little table in the dining room.
The house was built in the 50's. You will recognize the  pink and blue tiled bathrooms associated with that time period. I love how she has embraced the time with her collections. Image how much fun she had shopping and the thrill of finding just the right item. She loves estate sales and garage sales.

Bedroom number one I will call the pink room.

Start counting clocks. I bet she has no idea how many she has! 

Blue bathroom.
Have you noticed vintage fans are everywhere?

There are three bedrooms upstairs all with different color schemes and filled with vintage accessories! This is the pink bedroom mentioned above.

 As I was making pictures Pam was tweaking vignettes faster than I could take pictures. We had a great time talking and laughing. My grandmother had a set of dishes like the cup and saucer above. I remember them fondly. I think the reason we like vintage things is because they trigger a happy memory.


Bedroom number two and my favorite.

Another interesting candlestick! I am putting her on a mission to find one or two for me!

Bedroom number three.

Bottles in bathroom window. Sorry, the light was not good.

These are items for her antique booth.

Thanks for the tour, Pam! I had to sneak in one more shot of those cute chairs in your living room. There is a matching chair on the other side of the chest with another cute vintage hat!

  9. Hi Bonnie,

    I really enjoyed this tour of your friend's home. I love all her vintage pieces and the touches of aqua throughout her home. The snap of the table with the L O V E tiles on it also has an oil painting of Ginny Lind. We have that same painting (larger version) in our home. It belonged to my great-grandmother.

    Thanks so much for your visits and your sweet comments on my last two posts; that means a lot to me. :)

    I hope you have a great weekend!
