Retro Colours (Oranges and Yellows)


Hi Vintage Lovers, welcome to our Little Shop of Treasures Blog. Follow me, I want to share a few of my favorite items in our shop.

Kitchens and Washrooms

Today, I am featuring vintage items which have flowers that are yellows and oranges. My daughter, Cole hand picked these items with you in mind. 

When I think kitchens, I see yellow and white - orange - red. 

Yellow in particular is bright, cheery and refreshing. It's the sunshine and bright spring flowers. It is warm and inviting - happiness and optimism. 

These drinking glasses would look fantastic with a subdued cool palette of blues and grays.

They could also be a wonderful feature mixed up with reds, blues, greens, browns, and other neutrals for an earthy, sophisticated, or psychedelic look.

Drinking Glasses

Here we have two sets of drinking glasses with the same colour scheme but two very different feels to them.

The above glasses are a very cool, retro set of four drinking glasses /tumblers. They have an awesome flower pattern on them.

They are 2 3/4 " across the top and 5 1/2 " tall.

The glasses to the right come as a set of six. They are a really adorable and fun set with red, orange and yellow flowers! 

These measure 2 3/4 " across the top and 4 1/2 " tall.

I am positive these glasses will be a wonderful addition to your home whether it blends in with your decor or is a unique contrasting item.

Soap & Toothbrush Set

And lastly, we have a vintage, 3 piece bathroom set. It includes the cup, toothbrush holder and soap dish - all with an adorable orange, yellow and brown flower pattern on a white background. 

The toothbrush holder still has a sticker on the bottom that says "McGregor Bath Fashions Made in Japan."The toothbrush holder is just over 4" tall and 3 1/2 " across the top. The cup measures just under 4" tall and 3" across the top and the soap dish is 5 1/2 " long, 4" wide and 1 1/2 " tall.

Retro Salt and Pepper Shakers

This is a pair of super cool retro salt and pepper shakers with an awesome flower design in orange, yellow and green.

They are in excellent vintage condition!

These shakers are 2" wide and 3" tall. Fill them up with salt and pepper and you won't run out any time soon.

Spoil yourself or gift any one of these items to a good friend. Either way it would be a welcome edition to a home.
