LOL! I've thought the same thing at times. But then our grandchildren or great grandchildren will call them vintage and collect them and they will cost big bucks!

That's so funny! I have thought about that. My mom had mushrooms. I try not to go too far with things like that. Sometimes stuff sticks and you can't shake it. Like when I first got married and I liked swans. Yikes!

Oh my gosh. That made me laugh! I remember having mushroom stickers all over my school binders and my mother had a set of cannisters with them on them in the 1970s.

When my kids were in elementary school I was in charge of a school store where we sold fun jewelry. One of the things on the necklaces were mushrooms and we had a parent complain to the principal that we were promoting drug use. I was so stunned! And still laugh when I think about it.

I love the birds and bird's nests, surely they won't EVER be "dated"?

That's too funny, but probably so true! Jackie

Lori said...

Surely not! But, I bet I will have to eat my words. We will all hate bird nests, aqua and white. Furniture will all be painted solid colors with no glaze or chipping. And we will all be redoing our granite countertops.

My son pokes fun at just about everything I do so I'm sure you have this right.

Love this post! I have the bird nest with little blue eggs place cards from Pottery Barn! I love them...for some reason, I really like birds nests.

E said...

Too funny! But who won't love bird's nests 30 years from now?!
my mom only just gave up her mushroom canisters a few years ago : )

Lisa said...

LOL OMG I had to laugh when I saw the mushrooms.. I remember that phase! And you could very well be right about the nests in the future! Thanks for visiting today Suzanne. Love your comments as always.

Funny thought. My Mom had some of those mushroom things. aaaak. Or how about the owl stuff that's getting a second life? not so much

I think of that when I see so many kitchen redoes. People will be tisking the old style and I will be remembering when it was the bee's knees...well, not that far back, but you get the drift.
What is tough is when there is a "hot" style that you loved before it became popular and then you look like a follower. I had always loved cows and had to ask family to stop buying me cow kitsch. Plus, I have collected bird wall pockets and prints, and now everyone loves birds. I laugh that when I was a child I hated my aunt's retro, turquoise items and would now love to have them.
I guess, never say never, does apply.
