Make or Buy? Well, still buying...

This time some posters for the Annatorium. Vintage 60s from Ebay. Bright colors and trippy hippie sayings. Supposedly this artist worked in the studio of Charles and Ray Eames. So there's valuable provenance. Or something like it. Or I'll just believe anything an Ebay seller tells me. That's probably more like it. Well, I like them. And so does the girl who gets right in the middle of her big brother's soccer practice. You would have never caught me running in the middle of a bunch of older boys playing soccer. In a skirt no less. That girl.

Make or buy? Noch am Kaufen. Diesmal Poster für das Annatorium (Annas Zimmer). Von Ebay aus den Sechsigern. Bunte Farben und abgefahrene Hippie-Ausdrücke. Angeblich soll die Künstlerin im Atelier von Charles und Ray Eames gearbeitet haben. Oder 'was ähnliches. Oder ich glaube einfach alles, das der Ebayerkäufer mir erzählt. Dies ist eher die Wahrheit. Auf jeden Fall mag ich sie. Und das Mädchen, das mitten im Fußballtraining des älteren Bruders dabei ist--im Rock sogar--mag sie. In dem Alter hättest Du mich nie nie niemals mitten 10- und 11-jährigen Jungs beim Sport herumtoben gesehen. Dieses Mädchen.

And this/Und dies...

Just for fun!

Wow! The annatorium looks chiquer than any room we have in our house! Great find those posters, nice curtains and not to mention the Eames bit!
And oh yes, that girl! I think we have one of those as well. Wants to be pirate, a boy, a prince (note: NOT princess) but she just loves skirts and dresses.
