Last time I checked in with you guys my collection looked like this:

When I moved in to my place in January this was the first project that I did. At the time that orange was the best color I could find. Last month I got a bit tired with it. It just wasn't working for me. It seemed a bit dark for such a happy collection. 

I dug through my fabrics (I have an etsy shop so fabric is abundant) and found a great swath of green I had used above the stairs in my last place. You can see it's original use here.

Much better! It's bright, cheery and goes well with the orange and aqua Pyrex. I've decided I'm going to sprinkle in some more of the school bus yellow pieces. For the next two weekends I've got some flea markets to go to so I'm hoping they produce for me.


  1. OMGosh I love this! Gorgeous. I also really love your Crush pop tray and thermometer. I'm going to need to be on the look out for those!

  2. Thanks Charlene, the thermometer is something I didn't know existed until I saw it on flickr. Sadly it's quite a collector's item (who knew?) and the eBay auctions can get pretty hairy! I'm know kind of obsessed with Orange Crush items from the 50s.

    It's my two favorite colors and such a fantastic graphic, I had to have it. Thankfully I have a very understanding husband.

  3. Wow that looks wonderful. I love the Turquoise and Orange. Fabulous collection you have.

  4. I think the green looks great!! You have a real knack for putting everything together and making it look wonderful! Love it!!

  5. i love all the fun things you have! the colors are flawless!!
