Vintage Inspired Palette

From The Cottage Chick
I wanted to find a vintage-inspired space that I really liked, in order to do the palette for this week's submission to Brandi Girl's blog.I love the soft pinks, as well as the use of gold, in the picture above (from Better Homes & Garden) but I didn't like gold in the palette. I think these muted tones are more representational of the vintage colors in this photo. I would love to find some large letters in the initials of my boyfriend and I. It's hard to find them for a reasonable price, though! This old mantel is amazing! I love the peeling paint.... I don't think I could fit it into my Mini, though, do you? I can barely fit the small things that I find in my search for cool vintage! I think I'm going to have to get a little trailer to hitch to the back of my Mini!

I'm loving the palette, Shari - the colors are fabulous!

If you're looking for large letters, have you ever thought of maybe paper mache? It'd be reasonable in price and you could make it any size you like!

beautiful palette today! I also love your inspiration. I'm so bad at finding vintage treasures, so I envy people with that knack!
