Retro Home 1.0


Since I have known about our upcoming move (one week to go) I have been in search of the perfect retro home decorations. I am SUPER excited to decorate my new home and would like to share some of my favorite things I’ve found :)

These are 3 posters I will be getting for the house. The first 2 are for the bedroom- which will be done with a pin up theme. The 3rd I think will be in the living room. Keith Weesner is an amazing artist!

This fake-cake by CARAMIACAKES on Etsy is ADORABLE and would make me look like I was a baking betty even if I was out of energy. Spray vanilla extract in the air and who’d know?

I love this frame.  Some sort of sexy pin up picture needs to go in this.

More coming soon.

Home Sweet Retro Home.

On April 3rd, my family and I are moving our life a little more east. A bigger place, a nicer design and MORE ROOM. This move is what we have needed. It is also proving a major resource for retro research. This home already has its own retro flair- and with my loving touch I hope I can transform it into my own personal notch in another era.

Don’t forget that I have given myself a deadline of April 20th for the grand opening of The Retro Diva Etsy store! Make sure you set a reminder for when she opens! I want it to be big!!!

Over the next couple of weeks I am going to share with you the research I find as I look for ideas for my new home. Please feel free to give input, via your own ideas or websites you trust. Please keep in mind my retro style.  I am so excited for this project!

Busy Bee Status.

I have been a busy bee.

Still have not been able to figure out what is going on with Blogger and my custom domain. Sort of a big bummer.

I have been crafting though!

This lil clippy fits perfectly with any up-do and adds a bit of glam to your hair. A nice simple statement. The ribbon underneath is leopard print of course. I have also made some with out flowers.

I am working on ideas for the blog, adding pages and making everything just right.

I am also working on compiling my favorite leopard print things. If you have any you'd like to share feel free to email me. Make sure you put what it is, where you got it and why you like it so much. And of course, don't forget a picture!

x's and o's.
