Vintage household items that my mother took for granted, I was fascinated by. Items she discarded, I would keep. She viewed them as mundane; I viewed them as special. Some items I still have today & regularly use.
I really treasure the handmade quilts that my Grandmother made for me. They are very special. And, I think of her every time I curl up in one.
I guess I just love that connection with the past, and the memories that are triggered from seeing a vintage item..
I am always searching for unique treasures that others have discarded, or lost interest in. In 'My Vintage Alcove' it is my desire that you find something that rekindles your connection with the past & becomes a part of your "today".
I also have a crafty side!
