Thanks to “Oh So Lovely Vintage” of Winnepeg, Manitoba for this salute to Eames toys, found in the pages of  LIFE magazine.  ”The Toy” was produced and can be found here in our Catalog.  The masks were made by the Eames Office, design copyright Eames Office LLC.

Photographs by Allan Grant.

We know that it’s sixties sunday, but these amazing photos of Eames toys from 1951 were too good to pass up!
The designer himself, Charles Eames, assembling with pipe cleaners!
All of these lovely photos were taken by Allan Grant in March 1951, and found in the LIFE archives.
Here’s a link to the original blog
Here’s something about Stefanie Hiebert & Erin Thiessen, who provided this Guest EAMES SPOTTING.
Hello there, and welcome to our blog! We are Stefanie Hiebert & Erin Thiessen, best friends from Winnipeg, with a shared love of all things vintage! Our blog is a place where we get to write about our passion for vintage, whether it be fashion, home decor or music & film. We share little snippets of our daily lives and different things that inspire us. So if you are a new reader, welcome! We are really excited to have you be apart of our little world! Here is a mini tour of our blog, and we hope that you enjoy the vintage loveliness as much as we do!
First things first, we have two weekly features on our blog. The first one is Sixties Sunday where we post about anything 1960′s related, whether it be sunken living rooms, our favorite designers, or wacky kitschy recipes. The second feature we have is Hues-day Tuesday, which is where we create a new color story of pretty photos every week.
