More Vintage Country Living pictures

I've slowly been going through these old magazines - so many neat ideas. Some pictures would be great to show on this blog but they don't scan very well because they are on the fold. Anyway here is a sampling of what was great over 20 years ago and would still be great today (just minor tweaking here and there). I am bundling these magazines up 2 for a $1.00 and taking them to the Girl's Back Porch as I finish them if anyone around here is interested.
These pictures are from January 1985 - love the stairs with the stitcheries and crocks.

These pictures are from January 1986 - I love all of the wooden ware. 24 years later and everything here is still collectable.
This kitchen is from January 1986 as well. I really like the cabinets. 

These are from April 1986 - love the penny rug.

April 1986 - love love love the star hooked rug!

I love the pictures you posted. They could just as well be taken in 2010. Don't you wonder what makes some things timeless and some things just trendy?

I agree Shari, I believe that primitives truly come from a time when life was so simple, simplicity in itself will always remain timeless. Thanks for sharing.

It's so much fun going through these old magazines and getting ideas. I wish I could share the pictures on the folds - oh well.

I love the pictures you posted in fact I remember some of them from 20 years ago. Boy, do I feel old. I think it shows that the things we love will still be popular in another 20.

Wow- I love every one of those! It IS amazing that those were from so long ago- they look just like the pics we are all looking for and drooling over today! Thanks for sharing :-)
