June mood: Take me to the desert

Usually, my vintage and web shopping hunts are more into mid century items, but lately, I find myself looking for warm, earthy things to see. Things that remind me of the desert. I gathered here some loved items. I hope you’ll keep up with my changing moods…

Midlife crisis and web shopping healing

Warning: A weird post ahead. Ok, So I’ve been down lately, on my personal life. I wanted to write something, but I couldn’t. I had projects going on in my head, but couldn’t find the time or the right instruments for it. The story is, that in the past 2.5 years I live “temporarily” in a neighborhood I hate and my husband and I cannot reach a simple decision – where to – now. We can’t buy our own place, so we need to find a city to move to – permanently, and there, save money to buy our next home. But we are not getting anywhere, and time is running out, because we only have six months to the end of the year. You see, when you have a child, you must stick to the calendar.

But sometimes, when I can’t reach a decision, the best thing to do is just let it go, stop being obsessed and do something else for a while. And as I said, I felt so down and confused by the options, it had to be stopped somehow.

A while ago, I wrote about my new rules for web shopping – I allow myself to purchase twice a month, and on 50$ budget each. As I realized, I didn’t buy anything on March, I stepped proudly into Etsy – The largest flea market in the world.

My favorite second hand items are mid century decorative wall hanging, clocks, colorful fabrics… and well, everything. It’s not like I would like to live in the fifties, but I love the colors, and the overall decor. I’ve ordered three amazing items: two of them will decorate my son’s room, and one is for me…

 

1 – Vintage Soviet wall clock, Bazoor – Will look great in my son’s room.

2 – Birthday Party Scotties Tissue 1956 Magazine Print Ad, VintageAllianceAds – Also, for his room, will frame it offcourse…

3 –  Silver Tiger’s eye ring, Bazoor – A small gift for myself. And no, this is not my hand, it’s the shop owner’s and I believe her pretty manicure sold the ring (-:

Society6 Has Wall Tapestries, and they’re totally badass

I just received Society6‘s newsletter, announcing a new product I wasn’t expecting at all – wall tapestries. Yes, this thing teenagers and students fill their walls with, use as curtains etc. Usually, I would never consider wall tapestries for decorating my walls, but these are actually amazing. Or in their own words (I like the copywriting here…): Big. Bold. Totally Badass.

I picked a few designs I like. Will probably order one asap.

Bizarre Love Triangle: The Post-Punk Edition – Butcher Billy

A Lot of Cats – Kitten Rain

Watercolor Swiss Cross (White) – Skye Zambrana

Full moon and pyramid – Budi Satria Kwan

Busted! – Fabian Gonzalez

Whole Lotta Horror – Josh Ln

Unknown pleasures to Infinity- Collage Art By Mariano Peccinetti (My favorite!)

Tattoo à la Harry – Kate & Co.

What I bought in January

Recently, I’ve been trying to avoid “over shopping”. Especially on the web. To succeed in the mission, I decided to allow myself one web shop per month + one store shop at the outside world. The budget is 50$ each. Being kind of locked up in the house after the rhinoplasty surgery help me out this time. I didn’t buy anything during that week, but I did get things I ordered on the web, prior to this decision. So, this is what I bought in January…

1. “NOW I KNOW HOW JOAN OF ARK FELT” Mug from “K IS FOR BLACK”

I really like this line of products. Actually, I ordered the matching pillow, but unfortunately, it got lost in the mail (I suspect the mail here belongs to evil forces, and Hell is just a never ending day waiting for a package).

2. Geometric Necklace

I found this cute little store at Etsy.

3. Mini Kanken bag, I just had to have

4. Shoes on sale (Asos)

5. Second hand shop treasures

This one was almost for free because once in a season, I bring things I don’t wear to this small store and if they sell it, I  get credit I can use at the shop.

When The Mail Comes Around

Just got my mail. Actually, it was last week, but I was so busy I didn’t have time for blogging.

Last Friday was full of surprises – Our landlord invited us to see another apartment, he owns, that just happens to be vacant at the moment. The tenants moved out at the beginning of the month, and he thought it would be nice to offer us the opportunity to upgrade our living standards.

The current apartment is cute, but very noisy. The noise comes from a main road and it’s disturbing our peace, days and nights. Because of this noise we live with closed windows and air conditioning that can’t be stopped. The new place looks much better so we obviously said YES.

So, a moment before the big move… I want to share the last packages I received to this address:

The decorative rubber rollers I post about here.

A vintage home interior design book “Interior Decoration A to Z” by Betty Pepis (1965). I will soon write about it…

And my first starburst clock ever!

I’m happy about this change and ready to move. It means I won’t have time this week to finish decorating this new blog, and I know I have no header and it looks awful. But you know, these things take time…

Decorative Patterned Paint Rollers

The technique of wall stamping is something I remember from a childhood friend’s room, back in the early nineties. Even then it was very old and as a 13 year old teen, she stuck with this childish pattern of orange over pale yellow. Absolutely horrifying.I don’t know what technique used in the past for applying such patterns on walls, but I assume the reason for using it was quite the same as today – avoiding the high commitment to wallpapers. Cheapest costs are also a good reason for using rubber rollers, and if used properly (and tastefully!) can be a lovely alternative. After wandering in the web, watching cool photos like here below, and drooling over my keyboard, I decided to buy my first starter kit…
