I See A Change A Comin...

When I was about 3-years old, we moved from Wisconsin to Hollywood Florida. From almost the time I was old enough to grasp what was going on around me I was intrigued with old buildings and homes. Back in the late 50's and 60's, Hollywood Blvd. from downtown to the beach was lined with beautiful old homes dating back from the early 1900's and after so many hurricanes still stood the test of time.
This postcard is a picture of the old Hollywood Beach hotel that stood tall against the ocean at the end of Hollywood Blvd. right across the bridge from the inter coastal. What a sight it was too, I can just picture the grand parties that were held in it's massive ballroom. A few years back after my class reunion, I stopped in there just to reminisce, after all these years some things never change.

I really try to keep up with what people are looking for. Sometimes I hit the nail on the head and other times I say "what was I thinking?"

I was looking through one of the many magazines I subscribe to and find that some of the trends in home furnishing are changing back to the traditional antiques. What I mean by that is natural woods like oak, pine, mahogany, cherry and so forth.

Now I for one, have always just liked a "vintage look", a little of this and a little of that. Some of my favorite pieces were dug out of someones old barn, and probably ready for the fire pit. I also still love the tone on tone style without a lot of color. However, I am not just furnishing my own home so in order to keep up with today's favorite style, I am bringing in more of the "traditional antiques", but also keeping with the vintage style that everyone still seems to love.

I am very proud of this bedroom set, when I purchased it, I was tempted to tell them to keep the vanity, you would not have believed how bad it looked. But I thought well the least I can do is try and make it presentable and now it is the prettiest piece of the set.

The set consists of a Full Size Bed, Vanity with Mirror and Wardrobe. All pieces match and is a steal at $500.00 for the set

That bedroom set is awesome! I so wish I lived nearby. Who could resist for only $500? Less than the big chain stores and with a lot more character!
