Blue Shabby Books for Decorating Vintage Books on Etsy

Shabby Books Etsy RetroChaletI just love using old books to decorate with.  In this lot I have five old books, four are truly vintage and antiques, from the 1950’s and 1960’s.  These are simply stunning additions to the home, in original shabby condition, dents, dings, water stains, sticker stains, writing inside, everything a LOVED book should be!  Displayable, and readable! I’m throwing in the 5th to complete the display….total of five books, 4 are vintage books.

VIntage Keys for Making Art Retro Chalet on Etsy

Keys for artists.
Keys, Keys, Keys!

I just added a slew of keys for collecting, coveting, or making art into my RetroChalet Etsy shop.  They were in my studio for years. So many artists use keys in their work, that I thought these keys were better off with someone else. Not only that, but they are cute little collectibles of industrial history and reminders of yesteryear. All these keys seem to be blanks!  I love them all so much, just look!
