As the name of my blog suggests, I like to post about things I have found as well as things I make. This item isn't something I have 'found' as much as something I tracked down after seeing it on someone else's blog. Then bought one too.
It is a 1970s snack tray tower that I first saw on Jumbles and Pompoms blog. I knew it would be perfect to house my jewellery collection so I tracked one down on eBay. This wasn't too hard as there were a few listed. I was the only bidder (maybe because the auction ended at 10.30 on a Saturday night) and won it for £6.99.
It's just the perfect thing for the purpose, though it would also be cool for its intended purpose of snack dispensing. Here's how it sits on my chest of drawers:
It goes perfectly with my 1930s jug. It's only recently I have begun to appreciate the variety of 1970s style and fashion, and I love the 1930s influences it absorbed. I definitely associate bright orange with the 70s but it was also a really popular colour in the 30s too, which is why these items fit so well together. The picture in the background also picks up on the colour scheme too. This is definitely the most coordinated area of my bedroom!
