Welcome to Atomic Tuesday!
Today I'm featuring one-of-a-kind work from one of my favorite crafty bitches on Etsy, seller Fondue. She covers boring, plain light switch plates with vintage wallpaper from the 1920's to the 1970's in different themes to fit your style, from poodles to kitsch to ballerinas. I give her a zillion cool points for not only making cute switch plates for kids' rooms, but for recognising that boys need cool vintage stuff too! Seems there's always a ton of vintage-themed things available for little girls but not nearly as much for boys, so Fondue has a decent selection for a boy's room like planes, sports, cowboys & Indians, etc. Right on!
(PS: They're also great accent for the vintage-lovin' person who wants to add a little personality to their rented apartment or house, but isn't allowed to paint!)
So for Atomic Tuesday, here are just a few switch plate covers that I find uber charming--Ok, they're not exactly a "few", but it was hard narrowing it down to, like, under a dozen!:
You can file this under: "What a coolio idea! Why didn't I think of that?! I'll make my own one day...maybe during a vacation day in the summer...or maybe more like when it's winter and I have more of time to kill...whatevs, who am I kidding any damn way, I'll never sit long enough to complete one...Wait...What were we talking about?..."
