I am fascinated by all things from the past, antique, vintage and sometimes simply things that I find nostalgic or that reminds me of my childhood. I love to think about what kind of hidden stories a piece might hold. How many hands did this pass through over the years? Who owned it? And what was life like for those people?
I love going on the hunt at thrift stores, flea markets, and garage sales and finding a little piece of history. It stays with me for a while as I display it with pride in my home collection for a time. Then I pass it on to collect the next story.
I don't think that any of these beautiful items should be left untouched simply to look at. I love any excuse to use them. It could be throwing fancy tea parties with my daughters, entertaining on the holidays, or my family favorite is "Fancy Night for No Reason"…
