Lots of things…like pages from old magazines. Usually the whole magazine, but occasionally just a few pages.
Like this spread from the December 1996 issue of Country Living. (ignore the tears, sometimes I’m in a rush)
Pretty cool, am I right?
That’s why I’ve kept these magazine pages in a box for a few decades.
Not really diggin’ on the Victorian furniture, tulips, or quilts……but the red-painted floor, 48 star American flag, light-houses, collection of National Geographics, tramp art frames, that cowboy lamp with the red shade on the side of the bed, tin lunch-pails, school maps as window treatments, cowboy bed, and oodles of vintage Americana just make me dizzy. In a good way.
What a collection.
The cabin used to belong to designer Anthony Baratta. Google tells me that he’s still busy designing, but I couldn’t find any evidence that he still owns this Long Island cottage.
In fact, I couldn’t find any pictures of it online at all.
But luckily for all of us….I hoard.
