I think one of most peoples New Years Resolutions is to get organized! I know it’s one of mine……well every year! But it’s more apt to happen if I can have fun with it! Printers trays are one of my favorite vintage goodies! Did you know printers trays were used from about 1890-1960 to hold various pieces of an alphabet set? Fun fact…these trays were organized in font families and stored in a vertical cabinet which is where the terms “uppercase” and “lowercase” came from! I’ve collected a few of my favorite ideas for using these wonderful treasures.
Make an art piece for you wall or coffee table……..or just make a coffee table!! I won’t be able to get this one out of my mind for sure! They also make great jewelry organizers, and what a wonderful idea to paint one and us it to organize and compliment your crafting supplies!
I love the use of the trays to organize craft supplies and what about using one in your kitchen to organize your spices?
Of course the classic use for these beautiful trays is for displaying collections, and I can’t honestly think of a better way to display all of your “smalls”And last but not least, along with individual printers trays, we have this beautiful cabinet full of trays in the store. It’s such a beautiful piece of history. The font names are still even on the drawers, and I just love the chippy green paint in combination with the dark stains and metal pulls on the drawers.
What is YOUR Style: ROMANTIC
ROMANTIC – Characteristics:
Romantic women approach their wardrobes as an extension of their creative persona. They are often enchanting, flirtatious and youthful in nature and their attire choices reflect these with precision. Preferring all that depicts the notion of being feminine, romantics strive for glamor and sensuality via soft, flowing fabrics, ruffles, lace, drapery (and often a bit of bling!). Likely to be collectors of beautiful objects, perhaps antique hatpins or china with floral motifs, their jewelry also often takes on the same heirloom-look.
Dressing often in one-of-a-kind whimsical outfits they favor the quirky and have a knack for throwing together an un constructed dress with slouchy leather boho boots or appearing in pok-a-dot, peep hole dresses – either way their fun and flirty nature is the key element in their style adaptations.
ROMANTIC – Closet:
Your closet is a luxurious dream of silk and soft woolens, draping fabrics and flowing shapes. You tend to have more dresses and skirts than pants, most of which have waist definition and soft, ornate feminine lines. Oversize florals, poka dots and feathery shapes are aesthetic responses to your artistically charming nature and you never shy away from chiffon or lace!
You prefer a knee length skirt to a mini – length is important to your ‘look’ – however tops do have a tendency to fall below the hip, sometimes creating bulk where there is none! You own more flowy garments than most, structure and tailoring aren’t often bought as there crispness to be too constricting for your dance-like movements.
Your jewelry may be antique or vintage, but if it isn’t, it still reflects a vintage fashion sensibility
On casual weekends, you side step jeans (unless paired with a gorgeous silk blouse) and head straight for playful numbers that bring out the girlishness in you. Skirts and dresses have you looking wondrously flirty and fun and keep your mood, and those around you at a level of ease. A stand out in the crowd for you whimsical approach to fashion you might not always be the ‘trendist’ amongst the masses, but you are always a delight to notice for your pure femininity.
ROMANTIC – Shopping:
Trends are not the biggest on your agenda when it comes to shopping. You look for numbers that are going to reflect your romantic personality which more usually than not, come in the form of softness – whether it be fabric, cut or color, your always on the look out for garments that hold a distinctly feminine factor. Shopping sprees are kept to a minimum as you might find that you source pieces here and there – a recycled boutique, a department store, a high end fashion store – each will on occasion stock items of your choice, keeping you always on the look out.
Have you ever found yourself drooling over any of your favorite television character’s homes? Well it’s not that difficult to get the same look!
