A few posts ago I shared some very plain and simple holiday touches on the laundry room shelf. Well, as it goes, I decided to embellish the vignette up a bit by adding some of my favorite little vintage collectibles. They not only add a pop of color to the mostly black, white and mustard yellow accents in the room – they add a sense of whimsy and playful fun. Their faces and expressions could be perfect inspiration to develop a story. For example….
….”Weeeeeeee…….don’t tell Santa that we found his stash of Egg Nog in the “Pure Milk” truck! Sure Santa….your secret is out now!”
A question came to me from Lorri about this farmhouse print. The print is titled “Birthplace of Ulysses S. Grant, Point Pleasant, Ohio.” I love the elements in the photo…a little cottage, a river boat, cows and trees. I really don’t know too much about the lithograph of Appalachian life, but I did find an old etching on eBay that is of the old homestead. Just click here for the link.
