Just a corner of my livingroom/studio. I have "no problem" with hanging vintage toys, dolls and cardboard box tops, along with my paintings and assembled artwork. I find three-dimensional pieces hanging on a wall very eye-catching and attractive. The butterfly is a child's pull-toy. When it rolls along on the floor, the tin multicolored wings flap up and down. I believe it's from the 1930s, although I've found replicas for sale online. This is an original.
Another wall in my livingroom. I hang vintage beads and crafts I made as a child, and I also use fabrics hanging in doorways to "cozy up" the place.
Collectibles, old postcards and strands of beads co-exist peacefully.
A Ty's Beanie-Baby Fly rests atop a 1920s Borden's horse-drawn milk wagon. More beads and one of my hand-painted vases add color and texture to the walls.
I also like to have a lot of house plants situated all over the apartment. My violets are just beginning to flower again. This closeup shows the almost glittering appearance of the petals.
