While gathering containers and materials to use for today’s projects, I sorted them according to mid-20th century design. Then a niggling idea to include a 1/18th scale steel model car as the prop came to mind. There just happened to be a 1950 Chevrolet Bel Air Styleline Deluxe 2 door hardtop in its display box on a bedroom shelf. This means we will indulge more fully in a mid-century visual experience.
The short swung vase with a glass flower accent contains a mini arrangement. The red flowers contrast with the “Calway Green” finish of the car.
The double-well amorphus vase was created for the 75th Anniversary of Red Wing Pottery in 1953. Large roses were a big hit that year, so I went with that theme.
It’s all about more roses. The elegant USA Pottery #153 planter is the base for an avant garde creation.
The USA Pottery gold-trimmed, two-handled vase sports a whimsical combination of blooms and accents. This is just for fun.
The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes actor/comedian, Craig T. Nelson. “I had a ’56 Ford, and my first car was a ’49 Chevy. I converted it to a stick and used to race with the other high school kids down along the river.”
