The Roaring 20's!

By far my favourite vintage fashion is that of the Roaring 20's. Gorgeous dresses - even though they were shapeless! Cloche hats and loads of style and femininity. Vintage fashion prints hanging on a bedroom wall are irresistible to the eye and definitely add color and interest. Here are some of my favorite prints.

Every Kitchen Needs a Wall Clock.....

Maybe it's a generational thing, but I am lost without a wall clock in my kitchen. The kitchen is the hub of every home and even the new home designs, with their open concept living, have once again made that clear. And yes, I know, all our modern, digital appliances have clocks imbedded in them. But there's nothing warm and charming about a digitally displayed time. Check out these samples of heartwarming wall clocks. There are more on my website:

From vintage botanicals including fruit and vegetables to simply stunning and colorful design elements and everything in between. For the kitchen, bathroom, hallways.....anywhere that needs a splash of color or a dash of different. Of course, you can always use them as serving dishes too!

Vintage Advertising - Bathroom Wall Art

One of my favourite forms of vintage home decor is the use of vintage advertising. Gorgeous vintage illustrations combined with product advertising of the day makes for some beautiful and interesting additions to the home. Vintage health and medicinal products decorating your bathrooms as wall art are beautiful, funny and sometimes even frightening! Here are some examples of Vintage Bathroom Wall Art I have for sale at

There's something decidedly creepy about this poster....

Back Again

Well here I am again having another go at Blogging. Basically, I really suck at it and don't like blogging at all. It's too much like talking to myself! So I thought I'd start again with the basics.

What exactly is 'Vintage'?

The dictionary definition of 'vintage' is:- An item that is too old to be modern but too new to be 'antique'. Generally speaking clothing and items prior to 1920 is classed as 'antique' and after 1920 is 'vintage'. Items from 20 - 30 years ago are generally referred to as 'retro'.

Now that we've cleared that up, I do not sell genuine vintage items. Vintage Obsession sells modern items decorated with vintage and antique prints and illustrations. I also sell replica vintage and antique prints.

So welcome to the new Vintage Obsession blog where I will talk about Vintage Home Decor for Modern Living.
