We’ve been out curating!
There are now new vintage items in the Janeane Pittman Interior Design Etsy Shop.
This sweet ceramic vintage ivory bud vase. Cute and simple. It looks to have been hand made with an initial D on the bottom.
This vintage glass bird perfume bottle is from a by gone era. The sweet dobber is shaped in the form of a bird and the bottle itself looks like a swirl. What a wonderful piece for those who collect birds, have a vintage perfume bottle collection, or have a vanity that needs a little vintage appeal.
This pair of geode stones are natures beauty at its best. The cut stone reveals the colors and geode inside. These would look wonderful just sitting as a display or used as a paper weight on a desk.
This vintage yellow floral painting is a handmade piece done in the 1960’s encased in an adorable golden painted frame. It is sweet and simple ready to be hung by itself or in a wall gallery.
This antique Native American Indian snow shoe was made between the 1870’s and 1920’s. It’s wood frame has raw hide bindings and red pom poms on the side that show wear from much usage. Several sections of this snow shoe have damage and repairs from previous owners, but they just add that much more charm to this now decorative piece.
And I am proud to announce that we will now be incorporating vintage fashion accessories. Here is my first listing in this section.
This vintage 1970’s Mary Ann Rosenfeld satchel is just superb. It has a multi colored textured fabric body that resembles a rag rug paired with warm brown leather details. The satchel has both a hand strap as well as a detachable long strap that can be utilized as a cross body bag. A magnetic closure, interior zipper, & metal feet make this piece still very versatile. The handbag does have some damage to the front flap & top of the leather as shown on the 2nd close up picture. The inside does show some wear, but is still a wonderful and usable vintage piece with undeniable character.

Pantone has claimed Marsala as 2015’s Color of the Year. Marsala is an earthy red shade with brown undertones. This warm color is easily incorporated into the home in small details or large pieces of furniture. A lighter version like the fun pom pom pillow or bud vase add just a touch of this style. The dresser has such a deep tone that it will still be relevant beyond the current trend. I absolutely love this chunky knit throw that I want to just snuggle up in. And this rug shows how many colors can be paired with Marsala: teal, yellow, light blue, green, & ivory to name a few.
