a bright day calls for bright mugs

current tune: "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by: Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

While stumbling on the internet (how I usually find great gems) I came across these adorable retro mugs and all their vintage glory!


I found these little treasures on here and decided to check out the home page (Style-files) to find out more about these fantastic style site I stumbled upon! (Could not help going with the alliteration!)

The mugs are "Fire-King" mugs, popular in the 1950's-1970's consisting of milk glass, jadeite, azurite or vitrock. I've seen similar mugs in various thrift stores and Salvation Army stores, but never really looked into their popularity or background. Besides being quaint and cute, they seem quite durable and long lasting!

The site itself, style-files, is an adorable blog site by style girl, Danielle, and her inspiration. I am very pleased to have found it and hope to draw my own inspiration from the beautiful photographs she has on her site.

love, love, love....!!!

This is one of my favorite photographs from Danielle's site. As close friends know, I simply adore the color teal/turquoise and the room captured on the lower right has just captured my eye right off the bat! The simplistic chairs are fabulous as well!

Fabulous site, Danielle!

It all gives me inspiration for creating my own abodes as I move around and venture through the world.
