One really neat thing about Navy Life…it is a pretty sure bet that you will be living relatively close to a large body of water or, in the case of Okinawa Japan, surrounded by several large bodies of water. Summer is the perfect season to bring the beauty of the water inside by introducing the lovely soft colors of the sea into your decor…
I am a vintage all the way type of girl…no big surprise there. I love the old, the worn, the rusty and the tattered. I think my Grandmother would have been very amused by my collections and was wonder why I would decorate with all the old junk she could not wait to upgrade in her day. I do love my vintage treasures , but I am also very, very glad they serve only as an aesthetic purpose in my home. I do love my modern conveniences, this I can admit
Just the thought of dragging all my areas rugs outside to beat them with this contraption makes me want a long nap…but to be honest the thought of pulling out the vacuum sometimes has the same effect so perhaps the issue is mine.
I remember all the curling iron burns from my High School days…the 80’s were brutal to my hair follicles…but imagine the damage I could have inflicted with these curling tongs from the 1920’s? Follow this up with a pointed instrument to buckle up my shoes and it is an Urgent Care visit in the making.
…I mean in a good way…because look what I found…
Isn’t it gorgeous! It had to come home with me…even if I needed to open my purse a little wider than I normally do. That cobalt blue glass had me at Hello…Me,that red and white loving girl…it inspired me to add a little more blue love in the house.
