Vintage Library Look Dresser

Wherever I go, my eyes are looking for vintage items, or vintage "looking" items, and I saw this beautiful Library Look dresser in a local store at Multicentro Mall in Panama city.  

It was the last piece in the store, so I begged for a discount to take it home, it really got me crazy, so finally I brought it home with me to my room:

I love the library style it has, very unique with a nice vintage look.   I put all my decoration books inside.

Have a nice week,

Vintage Men's Hat Sign

Good monday friends,

Walking around our old quartier in Panama City (Casco Antiguo), I saw this nice vintage sign for a Hat's Shop.   A nice example on how to use vintage graphics, I loved it, a very creative sign.  

Happy Crafting!

Decor Accents for a small living room

My dear friends and readers, it's been a long long time since last I posted.  There has been ups and downs along the way that did not allowed us to continue creating.  However here we are once again with all our best intentions and positive vibes to return with more decor ideas, crafts & more.  We will be posting regularly as we get the new creations done.

We have also started already posting new free vintage & retro graphics and images in our blog: Retro Scrap Freebies for all your crafts and inspirations.

Today, I will share some pictures of my small living room, which I have decorated with some retro accents combined with some modern pieces:

A vintage lamp that I rescued from my aunt's house, some modern pillows from a local store, one vintage frame I got in Moscow and a Tuscan small landscape.

I had available also a small old chest, that I filled with pine cones and vintage birds, and next to it I added some beautiful plants with flowers. 

Finally one vintage style clock and few other decoration items.

In all few accents here and there, a fresh paint in light blue and gray colors made the difference.

Have a nice weekend & enjoy crafting,
