Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Glad to have you here, and happy to see you visiting with me!:)
During my spare time lately....when I can find that....I have been noticing a trend of things, and of course things changing a bit, and what people are looking for too. I have been noticing that the retro look from like the 50s and 60s is becoming popular again. Whether it is the hair styles, the clothing, the kitchenwares, and the colors they are using of aquas, pinks, retro designs, and the 50s 60s style....it's there. I haven't really noticed any emphasize on any kind of specific trend, have you? Am I over looking something here? There really does not appear to be a "Now" look in America today. It feels like we are composed of many things now, times, recreations of things, different collections, and so on. Sometimes I honestly think that people are looking for more of the simpler times, and ways of things.
I myself find me going back often to simpler times, simpler things, and simpler ways of doing things. If I have not gotten there with some things I sure do think about it, and wish for it too. It's great that we have become so advanced with so many things today. But, along with that advancement also comes issues that effects all of us too. My house has been slowly showing it too. I have been ridding myself of some of the pretties....too many things, and getting back to a point of when things were simpler for us. I have donated a big wooden shelf that fit 1/2 the wall in our living room, donated a coffee table, ridded myself of quite a few lamps, different figurines, and I am still not done. I have been going through boxes, taking things out here and there, donating them, and then later I will go through some of the rooms again, or some of the boxes again, and do it all over again with removal of things. Sometimes I am finding things that I repurpose a little bit, and that seems to be working in our home too.
I have noticed more people appear to be shopping with Thrift Shops too. Not only are they shopping them to save a little bit of money, but because everyone is looking for that unique look. Something different, something of theirs, and you know what I mean.
Nothing too special with this post. Thought I would share a few thoughts with things I have viewed, and noticed. I like some of the retro look with some of the colors, and probably will implement some of it into our home more too. Gotta clean house first before I bring anything else home to fill it:)
Would love to hear from some of you on what you think of this. Do you see any kind of a specific trend, are you seeing something different from what I am, or is it different for different parts of the country? Chime in with some of your thoughts. Would love to hear from others, and of course always enjoy the conversations too.
Thanks again for visiting with LilacsNDreams. Take care, and hope to see you again soon!
