daily musings of a vintage addict * I am totally obsessed with all things vintage * trying to keep up with my past...and sometimes ordinary everyday life

My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

ALL things vintage ?

did I say that I love all things vintage? that I am a vintage gal through & through? well, sorry then, it seems I am a fake. I have been deluding everyone, including myself for quite awhile - you see, I find this:
absolutely & down-right scary!

Ugh! This is ugly indeed!

I'm truly happy that you are a survivor Robyn!

Btw did the cyclone I've heard about in the news affected your area too? I so hope not!

It could only be in America...our house is a seventies house, but nothing like those photos! In Australia (well, Melbourne) in the seventies, it was apparently fashionable to have exposed oregon beams all through your house, brick and/or cedar feature walls, imitation woodgrain laminate in the kitchen, dark blue tiles in the bathroom. Well, that's what we've got, and that's what is staying there because we can't afford to change it!!

I don't think it was in our part of america because our house or anyones I saw never looked like that... must have been Hollywood or New York City homes... that is not vintage to me at all!

Because I am a 70's child, I have never classified 70's as vintage. to me vintage means 50's or earlier, but I guesss it's all relative...
At least prior to the 60's and 70's they had taste!!!

Truly yucky indeed!
Hoping you are o.k. Robyn and the cyclone didn't affect your area.

Absolutely priceless!

I remember: Harvest Gold and Avocado appliances. Track lighting. Bar stools with backs. A lot of orange. Z-Brick. Macrame. Oh mercy, the macrame.

I sooooo agree with Flossy. I think Ms*Robyn that you my dear friend have more taste in your little toe. Blahhhh! ;)

oh dear - not to my taste either! I loved the seventies but not this type of stuff!

Um, wow, there is some truly horrendous decorating faux pas going on there! I have to say though that I saw a few little thingies I wouldn't mind getting my paws on, hehehe. I have a love of bad taste you see. The tackier something is, the more I'm prone to bringing it home. Fortunately for me and my BJ, our new home is small and I've taken a tough stance on my hoarding of tacky shite habit - there is to be no more. So for now I have to be satisfied with what I have and with surfing that hilarious site!
