Fave of the Day - Vintage Autumn Dress from VintageStylez

Very Mary Tyler Moore Show. She has this marked as a 60s dress - perhaps, but more like the early 70s. Either way, it's a fabulous find!

Find it at VintageStylez and grab it before it's GONE!!

Blue Willow - Not always blue. Sometimes It's Hand Engraved Silverplate

This is a spectacular piece, and quite rare. Circa 1900s. Hand engraved, made in England. A faithful production of that perennial favorite, the Blue Willow pattern. 

The pattern itself dates back to the 18th century, and has appeared in numerous movies and television shows - a real classic. I've seen it (and sold it) in red, but blue is my personal favorite.

Of course, silver is the new blue!

More Chalk...Where?

Pretty darn awesome Chalkware head - she's large, ebony black with a cluster of gold flowers in her hair.  Dig those red lips - just gorgeous!

Pick her up at The NickNakNook on Etsy!

Heads up, it's Chalk Ware!

Love the distinctive style of each of these plaques. One, haughty and oh, so Locust Valley, the other exotic and mysterious.

Technology in Art, circa 1973

These paintings are from an aerospace company - I love the room sized computer equipment and illustrative style.
