I like some of it very very much, and we're not talking apparel or accessories this time...
but home furnishings.
my grandmother, Mom-Mom, had collections of everything.
I actually think she LOVED everything, could see beauty in the actual creation, you know?
& though I could never give up email or my computer,
I do hate it that no one hand-writes anything any longer.
I mean, I've even seen wedding invitations as E-Vites or done by email.
my daughter, Vanessa, is putting together a very fine "vintage infused" website
which will debut shortly.
she's actually purchasing fine antique and real vintage articles for her shop.
mostly all dinnerware and serving pieces.
but she is also curating additional items which are all artisan made, and made in the
highest quality and craftsmanship I wish to add.
she is very definite in her requirements for the shop.
& are these photos of the vintage days or of today?
& here is a kitchen which could be old & vintage
or completely new.
so maybe antique and vintage are really "timeless," like this amazing photo?
this could never be out of style could it?
& so the collecting of lovely things either from the past (as I've always done)
or beautiful things which are current could never be a waste of money,
and will always be treasured.
and eventually everything, even from today, will be vintage won't it?
so, tell me...what do you like?
very fine china or white ironstone?
do you love all the antique serving pieces from yesteryear or have you gone contemporary?
do you like replicas of old, timeless pieces?
do you love the look of painted furniture?
I would really love to know how you like to live everyday life
how you enjoy entertaining.
