3 Must-Haves from the Bookshelf of bibbieandblue   Leave a comment

#1  Modern Vintage Style by Emily Chalmers

I totally agree with Half.com’s synopsis: “If everything is shiny, new, and modern, an interior simply lacks soul. Homes need history. They need wit, humor, and emotion to make them vibrate with life.”  This title inspires us to (re)imagine vintage finds within a modern context.

#2  Decorating Junk Market Style by Sue Whitney and Kimberly Melamed

I just want to hang out with these two women.  They have a talent for turning junky into funky & I think they have a bang-up time together too.  If your in a slump as to how to (re)-purpose, grab a glass of wine (in a vintage mason jar preferably *wink) & flip through this junk journey with Sue & Kimberly.  (They also have an outdoor edition available, but we’ll save that for Spring.)  Then start planning your own adventure!

#3  Found Free and Flea by Tereasa Surratt

Flea markets are great, like a grown-up treasure hunt.  But! let’s not forget the serendipitous joy of stumbling along a discarded object … one that whispers a second story into your “creative” ear.  Take a gander at how to create lovely vignettes, collages, and collections from your own treasure trove of odd finds and freebies.
