Brasilia induces heart palpitations...

My all time favorite mid century design is Brasilia by Broyhill. My heart thumps harder when I see the stunning, sweeping design. It's true perfection in my eyes.

The Brasilia collection was created in 1962. Inspired by the architecture in the city of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil, it's clear to see where the stunning design came from.

Though more than 50 years old the design is just as striking, if not more so, in the modern day.

They just don't make them like this anymore.

Below are some current Ebay finds that make me want to go without eating or getting hair cuts, or paying the mortgage to afford...uh, maybe not that last one but what I would do for these pieces, my oh my!

What do you think of Brasilia?

Minimalist Love....Danish Style

Check out my Etsy Treasury featuring some of my favorite minimal Danish style pieces.
Wish I could buy them all!

I just love how effortlessly beautiful Danish modern and Mid Century design is.
How can something so simple be so stunning, inviting and artistic at the same time?

Craigslist Love - Mid Century Finds

This is becoming a repeat post, though I've been really neglecting my blog lately. I tried to enjoy what was left of summer in August by enjoying our pool, friends, family, outdoor things. That meant less shopping, less blogging, etc. for my shop. But I'm back in full force now!

Vintage Typewriters. A blog spot for Hermes 3000.

I finally got around to posting my fabulous 1958 Hermes swiss manual typewriter.

It was featured on Pretty Little Vintage Blog. Check it out here (and some other really great typewriters). http://prettylittlevintage.blogspot.com/

Aren't they just lovely? The clackety-clack and tappety-tap of the keys is so wonderful. Makes me want to throw on a pair of pearls, fix an updo and play Mad Men secretary!

and my favorites from this post.....
