More Vintage Vera

 We'll start things off today with this vintage (1979) Vera Neumann advertisement for Schumacher fabrics, rugs, and companion wallcoverings.
I'd like to get my hands on some of those! (Rugs?! Cool.)
 And next, I'll show you three vintage Vera Neumann scarves I found all on the same day at thrift shops.
Love the colors and the abstract design on this one:
I also love this next one, but I am going to have to see whether the spots come out.
 I've had mixed results with scarves - unfortunately, sometimes the colors run when you carefully hand-wash them, and they are essentially ruined.
 I hate it when that happens, obviously:
The last one is that sort of semi-sheer, chiffon-type of fabric.
 They tend to get snagged easily.
 It's pretty, though:
Here is another ad I found in a magazine. I think it's from around the same time frame as the one above:
I hadn't seen these ads before, so I was happy to find them:
And this next photo is from Seventeen magazine.
The towels being used as napkins here were also designed by Vera:
 That's all for today.
Just sharing the vintage Vera love, one photo at a time.

Isn't it fun when you find more than one at the same place? You found pretty ones but then aren't they all pretty!

Great finds, love the ads. I don't know that I have ever seen a picture of Vera. Very talented lady. Love T
