With their bell bottom trousers and eternal youth, they smile at me from across the decades. A moment frozen in time. I can’t help but smile back.
Welcome to Snapshot Sailors, where nostalgia for the way things used to be is never far away.
I love most anything vintage. I’m inspired by it, and I’m glad so much of it is still around today. Like the wonderful barkcloth I use for my bags. Barkcloth gets its name from its nubby texture which is a little bit like tree bark. It’s a colorful and boldly patterned fabric, and was popular in the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. Chances are that your grandmother or maybe a great aunt had barkcloth drapes. My grandma did.
I collect vintage art pottery, 1950’s tablecloths, and kitschy old Hawaii tourist souvenirs. I like to write short fiction inspired by old…
