Hello dears! By the time you read this post, we will be well on our way to Linden, TN for the 2015 Remembering WWII event! Woohoo! 😀 Ode to the powers of post-scheduling, am I right?
Have you ever wanted to decorate your home with unique, vintage or antique decor items to add that special bit of pizzaz to a room, but you never have the time or resources to go out to antique stores, garage sales, or flea markets to hunt yourself? Well, we have the answer to your dilemma! As many of you know, we girls are huge vintage enthusiasts, so when Frankie & Albert contacted us in regards to doing a review here on BFS of their monthly boxes of vintage home decor goodies, we were stoked!
What is Frankie & Albert, you ask? They are a subscription program, curating vintage home decor, hand-picked specifically to your style, which is packaged and delivered to your doorstep on a monthly basis. Imagine the utter joy and surprise of seeing what new, exciting finds F&A have picked out for you this month to furnish that empty wall in your bedroom, or add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen table! And by filling out a little form detailing the rooms, colors, textures, genres, and even asking for your Pinterest account to further insure that they get their choices right (see, I told you this was well thought-through!), you are sure to receive the perfect vintage treasures to liven and uplift your home’s atmosphere.
For our review, Frankie & Albert allowed us girls to go through photos of several lovely pieces from their storage to pick 4 items for our box.
Our group choice was this adorable little primitive-style, decorative watering can. We loved the beautiful stoney gray/blue color, and knew it would look simply smashing in amongst our autumnal decor in our family dinning room. Spoiler: it does! 😀 Although it can’t function as a flower vase, (unless of course the flowers are fake or dead) because of a hole in the bottom, we still are quite happy with this fun little piece to intermingle among our collection of knick-knacks for centerpieces and the like.
My (Charlotte’s) pick was this gorgeous milk-glass vase. I adore the intricate carving and the delicate shape. And doesn’t it look simply stunning with a few bright buds peeking out the top? Currently it’s making its rounds through the house, from the kitchen table to the guest bathroom shelf; but wherever it goes, a little bit of timeless loveliness goes with it 🙂
Brigid selected this absolutely winsome vintage canister as her pick. The adorable little birdie perched atop it’s doodle-y nest is charming beyond words, and the petite size of the container makes it quite versatile: from holding sewing supplies or earrings, to kitchen spices or teas. Currently it resides on the top of Brigid’s dresser, in amongst her collection of other vintage knick-knacks and artifacts, waiting to be filled with whatever her heart may desire.
Jessica chose the most gorgeous, intricate cake server for her selection from Frankie & Albert. From the beautiful painted handle, to the delicately engraved blade, this piece is a true work of art. A paragon item to be treasured and saved for the perfect cake to cut, no?
Over all, we girls were very well pleased and impressed with the service that is Frankie and Albert. From their beautifully done website, subscription plan, and delightful treasure trove of vintage decor, to their fast shipping and friendly, thorough customer service; we have nothing but good to say of this wonderful company! And Frankie & Albert have a special treat to offer all BFS readers: 20% off a new subscription by using the code BOYERFAMILYSINGERS20 (case sensitive)! Isn’t that simply wonderful? What a perfect gift a subscription would make for a newly wedded bride just getting going with her home decor, or a vintage enthusiast friend who wants to expound on their collection of retro furnishings! Or, you could spoil yourself a little with a subscription, and give a facelift to a drab or worn-down space in your own home. 🙂
