I got an "A"


Anyone paying attention so far has noticed my eclectic taste.
Traditional, high country, English, dark wood, colorful for the most part, oh, and vintage.
Add in some industrial and Eclectic officially turns into Junky.
Husband and Son had come to that conclusion a while ago.

Oh, well.  This too, may pass and when it does I'll be on the side of the road trying to get rid of my former passions for a few bucks at one of my least favorite things to do - host a yard sale.



My A is also my new favorite green color and will reside here until I find the perfect place for it.  Historically, the basement has been the home for treasures of this style, but I don't frequent the man cave and this A is Amy's and is staying where she can appreciate it.
(reminded that I need to show the 1960s Chevy grill on the basement wall)


Amy's Absolutely Adorable Awesome A

Great stuff on top of your cabinet... but soon you are going to need a bigger cabinet. :-))

What a lovely vignette Amy! I love the mini chair there...I have one like it. I thinks your-A-
gives it that added touch! Thanks for sharing! Hugs

The only other place it should go is on the mantel, front and center! I like it and it fits in perfectly with your other junk ... uh ... decor :) I spy a basket of kitties on the chair?

Amy...You are singing my song. I grow tired of things quickly and I have to say that A would be staying with me for some time...smiles...Renee

I love your A too, and that spot looks to be pretty perfect to me. And, ya know, I cannot imagine this passing.........you NOT collecting. But, if it does, I'll be second in line, right behind Lori. 8-)

It's a vicious cycle isn't it? :)

I paid a whopping $1 for that basket full of kitties at an estate sale. It was a great day!

Amy @ with a Vintage Twist said...

Yes, it will stay with me for a long while. :)

Thank you, Lori, for visiting and the kind comment!

I think you are right. Not any time soon, anyway. See you again soon.

I like your A and think it looks great up there. I used to keep all my less perfect stuff in my family room in the basement too and I just started to bring it up to the first floor. My husband is getting used to it.
