A compendium of retro somethings

Another weekend is about to start, and with it comes another compendium of somethings.  

Something I want: Like really, really bad. I've always wanted a VW bus, but I think this is my new very favorite vehicle. Awe, so European, tiny and pretty! It's a Vespa 400.

Something for photography lovers: I love this series of photos by Erin Hanson.


Something for record lovers: At Center of attention you'll find a big collection of record center labels.

Something for radio lovers: I so covet one of these awesome Roberts radios!

Something for your living room: These applause/recording lamps.

Something movie inspired: Lisa Golightly: a blog and store inspired in the glamorous old Hollywood.

Something by Dieter Rams:  

Something to embellish your letters: Vintage stamps.

Something colorful: Vintage crayons.

Something to put an old TV into good use:      

Hope you all have a great weekend! ;D

Thanks for stopping by Miki and for your lovely comment! Once you and your hubby decide on a color for those walls, do post a picture! Would be interested to see it. Oh and I love those vintage picks! My fave is the TV-turned-bar. Cute and innovative. Oh and am your newest follower now! Come by soon! xo

Ooh la la! I love those radios! Can't believe they have them with a floral print even:)
I'm looking for a cute vintage-looking radio that still has a cd-player, it's a tough search.

And that is the perfect car! I just saw a teeny tiny car on tv today, but didn't catch the name. If I find it I'll let you know though.

P.S. Loved Happy-Go-Lucky too<3
