My pin boards have been filling up with images such as these this week. I love all the textiles and plants, the mid-century furniture and the unpretentious feeling this style evokes. I was born in the 70's so I also imagine there is a little sentimentality and nostalgia that arrises in me as well. I can't say I remember the 70's very well at all but little bits trigger my toddler memory, like the macrame hanging plants and wall hangings, the kilim rugs and mexican falsa throw blankets. My grandparents (who raised me more or less) were also of the generation of which you never threw things out or replaced something that functioned (no matter how outdated it was), so many items they acquired in the 60's and 70's were in their house up until they left this world. It used to drive me crazy growing up because they would have a plaid pull-out from the 60's next to a new high-back floral number from the 90's paired up with a coupla lazy boys loungers from the 80's. Agh! But now I appreciate the fact I am able to have items that I remember from when I was just a wee tot. But, oh, now I am wishing I would have grabbed one of the throws from our trips to Mexico! Luckily I have a long, long memory (not to be confused with short term memory of which I have none).
