Almost all Christmas shopping done, completed last night in bed with some homemade feijoada watching ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. My idea of shopping heaven. But of course in my somewhat attention-deficit brain, I was flipping all around the internet and found some things I couldn’t wait to share for show and tell. Enjoy!
This is called the ‘Fractured Fairy Tales’ wall display on Thomas Wold’s eponymous blog. From what I can tell, he’s some kind of woodworker/designer, maybe? I can’t find and ‘About’ tab and that’s a crying shame because he has some gorgeous pieces, many MCM inspired. I couldn’t find out how to contact him if I wanted to buy his stuff (as if I could!).
You all witnessed my media cabinet transformation from an old Habitat for Humanity record player cabinet into a modern family room media center. However, had I seen this and had the bravery to actually submit the inquiry request to get the cost (it’s a bit like those menus with no prices), I would have second thought the effort out into my $10 on. I love that this accomodates the moden flat screen TV and retailed that mid-century built in look from Wilkerson Furniture. Love it.
I know that Pantone just declared the ‘Color of the Year’ as Tangerine Tango, but I’m just not there. (And who they are to declare colors of the year, I simply don’t understand. Pantone does know color, but do they know fashion?) For me, I am still ridiculous hung up on the gray and yellow of (apparently) yesteryear. I do indeed believe gray is the new beige and I love it combined with this mustardy yellow. This will inspire our bedroom, if we ever get around to working on it.

In the DIY category, I love these wood veneer pendant lamps from Poppytalk. While not Brandy-level possible, not impossible either.
And because we can’t be in December without a holiday show and tell, printable mid-century ornaments (on a pink tree, no less!). Love it. From Modern Kiddo.
