There is something so aesthetically pleasing to me about the combination of the metals and the vintage greens in these objects.

More lovely finds from weeks gone by that also fit the bill:

Those soft greens and blues are lovely aren't they. I'm not one for the mid-century type stuff, but I do love those colours.

I so love every post of you!
I know exactly what you mean by that beautiful combination of metals and soft greens...it's so pretty!

Hope you and your little girl are fine!

i think we are about to move into a new place and i really want to paint a room (maybe the bath or small hall) the color of that typewriter - 1st photo.
i tried with my current bath, but it ended up being WAY more turquoise and less green.

i am acting like i'm cracked out right now because i am just so overwhelmed by your TOP-NOTCH thrifting and wrapping skills!
just getting the package - let alone all the amazing goodies inside- was a thrill! all those girls on vespas!!!!
i am about to go to lunch with a friend so i'm going to see if i can make an outfit with the jacket, necklace and tiny adorable little purse you gave me along with some stellar shoes diana sent last week!
YOU ARE THE BEST!!! thank you so very much. you certainly put my little package to shame!
