My family calls me a pack rat, but I prefer to call myself a collector of collections. I am unable to resist the siren call of secondhand shops, and once there, I can NEVER leave certain vintage items behind.
I don't sew (sadly), yet I quickly snap up vintage fabric, seam and blanket bindings, ric rac, sequins, and buttons whenever I find them.
I have the tiniest kitchen known to man, yet I gather up enamelware, tea tins, recipe boxes, fired-on glassware, and oil and vinegar sets as if I had all the cabinet space in the world!
And for the vintage, shabby chic nursery? Oy. My daughter has grown past the beautiful nursery I created for her (*sniff*), yet I can't pass a Charlotte Byi print or vintage baby book or antique infant robe or chenille baby blanket without putting it in my cart…
