MCM Outdoor Touches

Whenever we drive around or walk around, I am always on the lookout for MCM homes and MCM outdoor items. This past week, as we walked the dogs, I noticed several MCM outdoor items in our neighborhood and I thought I would share them on the blog.

I am always on the lookout at rummages and estate sales for outdoor lighting. I love the old styles of lighting. It just seems like they don't make fun designs anymore. Here is a great outdoor light. It even has a place for the flagpole.

Here are three examples of some vintage screen doors. I just love the aluminium leaf one.

I think garage doors back in the day were much more interesting. Here is one that has some small diamonds on them. Just enough to be tasteful and totally retro.

Next time you take a ride or a walk make sure to check out any MCM touches in your neighborhood. I would love to hear about what you find.
