Retro Saturday

It's winter and what do we all lack (at least in this neck of the woods)? Colour! So I thought I would brighten your day with a few retro things I found recently.

Check out the fella above! He is a wooden candelabra of sorts. He is a little beaten up but has a great patina and will brighten up any table.

This kitchen wall plaque was covered in grease with no shine at all. I've always loved these things. Looks like something Carmen Meranda would have worn on her head!

This little, about 5 inches, Japanese urn was also SHOUTING OUT at me. Check out those colours!

This 'planter' (I wouldn't use it, not solid enough for me) was also pretty dirty in the shop. I was surprised at its brightness when I cleaned it up.

There now, I hope this has brightened up your day and that your weekend is going very well. Amazing what a little colour can do for ya!
