It’s going to be Beach season before you know it, and you are going to want a cute Beach Tote like these stylish pink Jelly Bags from the UK-based retro accessories company Sun Jellies.
This vintage metal cocktail tray is absolute perfection and a dream to own for any fan of mid-century modern design! Embellished with a design of assorted Pink Cocktail Glasses and a boarder of prancing Pink Elephants, this 5 x 7-inch tray, officially known as a “tip tray,” was originally sold in sets of four. Currently, lucky collectors can find them in stores that specialize in vintage pop culture collectibles, and on eBay and other auction sites.
This Pink Poodle Christmas Ornament (priced at just $14.50!) was spotted in the Simply Fresh Gift Shop in San Marino, California. They stock all kinds of cool gifts and slightly retro seasonal decorations, and I always enjoy shopping there when I am in LA for the holidaze!
Don’t think that I didn’t struggle with the decision of whether or not I should make the awesome YOMI chair a Pink Thing of The Day, because I did. But, ultimatlely, the design aspect won out. Because who doesn’t want to sit on an Inflatable Pink Chair? Plus it comes in other colors.
I’m a total sucker for inflatable furniture, because it reminds me of the sixties/pop aesthetic that I grew up loving and coveting, but which I was never able to embrace in my own home, because I was a child and my parents were super square. The inflatable home goods of that era were not so sturdy and maybe not as comfortable as they could be, but all that has changed thanks to the smart design approach of Mojow Furniture, makers of the YOMI chair.
Do you recognize this object? Do you know how works? How old are you? Don’t answer that. It’s hard to believe that this totally rad Pink Rotary Dial Desk Telephone was once the height of cool and contemporary consumer design. Now, it’s just a sculpture, or a piece pop culture ephemera.
Maybe you’ve seen one used as a prop in an old movie you enjoy for its nostalgic pull.
It is beautiful though, ins’t it? Sure it is.
