Fun In The Sun! Coca-Cola Style!

For the past few days I have been rearranging, cleaning,
organizing, taking junk to my booth, trying to downsize!
One thing is for sure, these things I will never tire of!
Hubby has been collecting Vintage advertising for the past
15 or more years! You could say that this is his obsession!
I have always loved to collect vintage garden treasures,
metal 50's furniture, and old tin toys! The combination
surely brings some fun to a room..my sunroom that is!

Vintage cowboy collectibles, old metal toy trucks,
some circus themed treasures mixed with shabby
chippy furniture, mostly found on ebay, antique
shows, and very few at estate sales....
The best estate sale find was the huge cupboard found
a year ago for only 45.00 you heard me right! Scored big time
on that one! It is absolutely perfect for my sand toy collection!
Vintage Coke machine with Coke coolers & vintage advertising tins!

My tin toy sand pails, shovels, seashells on an old chippy blue shelf!
I hope you all have enjoyed the pics, as much as I have enjoyed sharing
them with you! I hope you all have a wonderful time this summer!!

So much eye candy - I absolutely love your sunroom!!! The watering cans and shovels are my favorites. Your collections are amazing - you definitely need to be in a magazine.

Love all the Coke items. With a husband and Dad that collects them, I can tell you they'd be jealous! Thanks for sharing and thanks for stopping by my blog (so I'm a little late in responding...my bad)!

Although I am ADORING all of your Shabby Chippy White dreamy rooms... I must say, this room of bright cheerful Treasures looks so fun and inviting that I would linger and have a flood of childhood nostalgia going on!
