Thrifting in shades of Orange.......

 I fell in love with this fabulous vintage towel
its the perfect addition to my Clementine orange bathroom....
 I don't think I have ever shown you our oldest sons
bedroom.....I found a few vintage treasures for his room.
 This cool vintage orange tin.....
 This vintage tin.....
His little bathroom.....

I found a few more treasures that I'll share soon.
Hope your having a great Monday.

I felt so bad, the Gas man came today and got stuck in the yard
poor guy I felt so guilty watching him dig and trying to put chains on to get out....
took him an hour or two.....


  1. oh, yikes! poor gas guy!

    (sure hope that little moose you saw gets rescued!)

  2. Your son's bedroom is very charming for a boy. Love the little bathroom. Diane

  3. your blog post title translates my yesterday thrifting mood to a tee! i found me a fairy tales book in orange fake patent leather; a heart cushion in beige and orange and a 70's kitchen scales, in creme and orange. and it works! new addition to the kitchen-yet-to-come-and-always-getting-a-little-closer....
    oi, oi; your eldest's room is a swoon! is he into vintage too? ;)))

    Have a good week ahead my lovely
    LOVE PEACE enJOY your wonderful thrifting

    P.S. I would love to teach you crochet...but it might have to be via SKYPE lol!

  7. LOVE that orange tin! What a gorgeous towel, perfect for your bathroom..x

  8. Love those tins especially the Arctic Survival one - wonder what was in there. I have to admit to orange being one of my least favourite colours. I used to have my bedroom in the colours of your towel as a teenager back in the 60s and you never like things second time around do you? Looking forward to seeing more treasures. Love the bathroom mirror and soapdish too.

  9. I love the orange bathroom and the floral towel.
    Great boys bedroom.
    Have a nice day,

  10. my mum went to California to visit her sister in the early 1970s and came home with a set of towels exactly the same as yours, together with a yellow happy-face clock and matching weight scales, soap dish and toothbrush mug and procedded to decorate our rather staid family bathroom bright citrus yellow (I don't think my dad was amused!)

    It looked so happy and cheerful that I've done my bathrooms yellow ever since- and I have the happy-face clock still tick tocking away, although everything else is long gone!

    Hoping that you are well and enjoying some Spring weather?
