While summer is all about grilling, fall is all about baking. The onset of the extended holiday season means the kitchen gets a workout with flour-coated counters, mounds of chocolate chips, and spicy scents wafting through the whole house. For many, baking a batch of pumpkin bread or snickerdoodles brings back cherished memories of spending time in the kitchen with mom or grandma. For me, sitting on the kitchen stool while I stirred a batch of cookie dough in Mom’s giant Pyrex bowl was pure heaven.
You can bring some vintage flavor back into your own holiday baking this season with our Vintage Housewares Collection. This Vintage Pyrex 4-Quart Bowl will hold the muffin mix while adding some sunshine to your kitchen with its zesty yellow finish. This hue comes from the Primary Color line of Pyrex dishes and the bowl measures just over 10″ in diameter. For smaller batches, check out the matching Vintage Pyrex Yellow 2.5 Quart Bowl which is eye-popping on your counter even when you’re not baking!

Springtime got us in the mood to revive our gardens and summer has us wanting to play. From playing in the sprinklers in the back yard, frisbee in the front, or waxing the car in the driveway, this is the time of year to engage with the outdoors. If you’re like me, the garage is the ultimate hangout. Many fond summer memories were created while sipping on a glass of lemonade as I watched my dad grilling just outside.Read More

Sam Levenson, an American humorist, writer, teacher, and journalist had this to say about time — “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” We think Sam must have written that on a Monday morning, not a Friday afternoon at 3:00pm when he’d been slaving in the cubicle all week! However, even Sam might be tempted to slow down and take a look at time passing on these beautiful vintage clocks. These are part of our rapidly expanding line of Industrial Decor here at Barn Light Electric in a collection we call Vintage Timekeeping. Taking inspiration from a variety of antique clocks, the Vintage Timekeeping line has a range of styles including classic, vintage, and retro in beautiful shades of cream, black, and red. You’ll also find some classic wooden clocks!
The clocks in this photo are from our Retro Collection and were photographed recently at Rocket City Retro, a family-owned and operated business that serves the Cocoa, Florida area with expert interior designing and a line of high-quality furniture. The clock at the top left is our Bullit Mantel Clock which features a quirky design that would appeal to your college student or be a great desk accessory at work. Available in Gloss Red or Gloss Black, the clock features bold, arabic numerals and a continuous digital alarm sound.
The top right clock above is the Bubble Alarm Clock which comes in Gloss Cream, Gloss Red, or Gloss Black. The bold hands and arabic numbers against the printed white paper dial make for easy reading within the acrylic case and domed acrylic lens. And the bold red clock on the bottom shelf is The Metro Clock which also comes in a sleek Gloss Black. This retro wall clock has an acrylic case that gives it’s vintage design a fun, modern twist and would look great in the kitchen or study. The dial has an aged appearance adding to its vintage charm!
Looking for creative alternatives to the standard retail environment, most businesses are giving up the stark white setting for a blend of rustic and industrial elements. Although unique, this hybrid of nostalgic styles serves as a money saving way to create a one of a kind space out of many reclaimed woods and metals that would have been thrown away or sold for scrap. The perfect balance of recycled building materials and modern convenience is often a fine line to walk between the two styles, but when they are combined in the right combination they can bring an instant wow factor to any place of business. This ideal marriage of old and new can be seen in this latest photo that demonstrates the use of reclaimed wood, windows, and doors. Utilizing the natural stains from the aged wooden planks, a rich tapestry of browns come alive, highlighted by dark knots seated within the pine boards that frame the room and make up the walls of this stunning store. Separating the showroom from the main office is the use of an antique set of factory windows with a mixture of wavy glass and frosted windowpanes that create a faux wall, providing privacy and an open environment. With such a unique combination of styling, coming up with a light to accent this rustic, industrial environment is the key to completing this setting. To meet the needs of this store, the use of a series of galvanized Angled Sign Lights on the interior walls, allowing an ample amount of light to shine against the display wall and downward at the work area. To recreate this look in your home or office, the use of our 12â€ Angle Shades on HL-A Goosenecks can provide a cohesive look to any rustic or modern setting. This versatile American made light is available in a wide selection of finishes to meet any setting, with additional custom options for various gooseneck arms and wattages.Read More
