Aqua Blue Heaven Friday: Gliding Light

Welcome to Aqua Blue Heaven Friday!


I've been burned-out on our aqua theme for the past "x" amount of months, in a creative funk you'd say, but I feel like my "aqua mojo is back with burnin' fury! (Or whatever.) To my luscious new followers (yes, you are indeed luscious and don't you forget it), Aqua Blue Heaven Friday is a day (friday, duh) I showcase a supercool/wicked/fantastic/ridonkulous/enter any fitting descriptive word here/ vintage item that is, shock and surprise, aqua. Now lets ride, mofos!

Today's pick is not only grand in scale, but also in sheer awesomeness. Something I SO wish I had but never seem to get my grubby little paws on. A Firebird-driving, cutoff-denim-jacket-wearing, mullet-rocking, lifting-weights-in-the-garage-listening-to-Motorhead-on-cassette-tape-on-a-ghetto-blaster, Big Gulp-of-Mountain-Dew-chugging, poolboy named Zeke? Well, no, not exactly. (Though I really wish I did.)

I mean, this:


But the BEST, most filthy and suggestive thing about it? It reclines!


Awwww, yeeeah.

Vintage 50's Aqua Patio Aluminum Glider is currently available on Etsy from seller The Vintage Supply Co. They do not, however, have a poolboy named Zeke. Pity.


  1. Oh wow I wish, mmm not sure it would work in the UK with our weather :o(

  2. Oh, what a fabulous glider! Love that "filthy & suggestive" special feature. ;)

    I've wanted one (glider, not Zeke) for so long and am still kicking myself for not buying a really swell streamlined glider a few years ago for $5.00 (!!) because "how will we get it home in our tiny car?"...
