I love all things vintage. I live in a 200 year old farmhouse filled to the brim with antique and vintage collectibles. One of my favorites is old books and papers.
There are not too many things better than curling up with a good book.I appreciate all the internet has to offer, but the whole experience of reading a book just feels more connected and real to me.
I also love ephemera of all kinds. Scraps of ancient papers, photographs, old love letters,tell such intimate stories about lives long gone. It makes those people come alive more than any other collectibles I can think of. The nervous face of a bridegroom in an old wedding picture, the stack of travel brochures from a spinster school teacher, farm journals detailing good or bad times in the fields...
We are all connected in our humanity no matter what era we experience the joys and trials of living in...
