Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (minus Sneezy)

As I blogged in an earlier post, I have been in the process of restoring these vintage Disney concrete garden statues. We have all the pieces except Sneezy who was too busted up to restore. Fortunately, we found a replacement that is shipping from the east coast.

One thing I noticed when trying to stay faithful to the color scheme of each character is that there seems to be a lot of conflicting info online. I did my best to match any images I found online from the original movie. Also, I wasn’t digging just a white beard. I tried to add more detail by adding gray and white to capture a more realistic look. Here are before and after photos of some of the characters.

These pieces have started to be reproduced. They come in three different sizes: small, medium & large. Our set is original and would be considered the large set. We will be happy to complete the set once Sneezy arrives. Onto the next project!

Excuse the landscaping, we still need to work on the backyard.

Super Atomic Aluminium Recliners

We recently attended a local antique fair and it was pretty uneventful, except for these two beauties.

The fabric is so atomic and right down our alley.

We purchased them from one of the usual sellers we buy from. He said he purchased them from a little old man who used them for a short time when purchased, and then placed them in the rafters until now.

Overall they are in fantastic condition considering their age. The metal frames could use some cleaning up.

The cushions need a good scrubbing to freshen them up! We are undecided if we plan to keep them. If we don’t, make sure to check out our shop at Midway Antique Mall.

They make me want to lay down and sip on some mojitos.
