A (Domino) Page from the Past

OH, Domino.  You still make my heart go pitty pat – especially when I stumble upon old scanned tear sheets from your archives, like this one I spotted (gasp!) on Pinterest when it was just a teeny tiny thumbnail on a page.  There is still something so distinct and almost magical about the pages of Domino - the eclectic layering, the effortless chic…  Every month was like Christmas when it came in the mail, and I always knew I was about to be transported into a world full of charm and wonder – one that was never inaccessible, and always inspiring.  For instance, look at the photo above:  that’s some lovely but demure granny chic wallpaper…  a super feminine, ornate sconce…  an old side table with books piled up Jenga-style…  sheets with pink hearts on them, like the ones I had when I was 4…  and your grandpa’s plaid wool blanket standing in as a comforter.  And a little breakfast in the rumply bed.  Who would’ve thought to have put ‘em together, but put ‘em together and what’ve you got?

Bibbity Bobbity Boo.   It’s magic, I tell ya!

Have a great week!
