Art Smart ~ Vintage Fun

Check out this beautiful photo of a vintage bike in front of a bright yellow background (from ScarletBeautiful2's etsy shop).

This Sunkist California Dream Vintage Tin (from violetsandgrace's etsy shop) would look nice on your bedroom dresser near the bicycle photo.

And this 20" pillow made with a vintage Buffalo Brand grass seed grain sack (from lesliejanson's etsy shop) would look great on a chair near the tin and bicyle photo.

The great thing about vintage (ahem...besides being eco-friendly), is that you don't have to feel like you have to match home decor items exactly. A great thing to keep in mind when buying more than one vintage item is color. Note how all 3 items above have some form of yellow and black in them-which will help tie them all together in one room. They all also have a bit of a worn feel to them, which goes with the whole vintage theme. Again, don't be "matchy-matchy" when it comes to vintage-just find one element (color, worn feel, etc.) that ties the items together and people will think you're a pro!

P.S. 100 Days Until Our one Year Blogoversary on August 1st!!! Contests & more fun new features to come!
