i love the seventies
i must admit i go a little crazy for anything from the 1970's. i was born in '77 so maybe that has something to do with it. i mean, don't get me wrong there were some serious uglies from that time period but when i think about the giant wedge shoes, floppy hats and feminine, sheer blouses tucked into high waisted jeans, i get happy. the fluid, natural looking furniture pieces-a lot of wood and soft, buttery leather... i could go on and on... i have some wicker hanging basket chairs from that time and they are some of my favorite pieces. i also love craigslist. i happened upon this 70's vintage, danish beauty last week and had to have it. a friend of mine said it reminds her of an old pair of frye boots and i couldn't agree more. what's even better is it was SUPER cheap and nothing beats that feeling when you find something you love and get an amazing deal on it to boot. i can't wait to work it into a room when (IF) we ever get over to our new house!
