Finding Inspiration in the old world

I never thought all of the treasures around my grandmother's house would ever lead me to where I am now, but it did, and in a big way. When she passed away, I was left to clean out her house, as so many in my situation have been. I noticed how she took so much care in storing and saving all of her favorite items. From her 1960's coats to her vintage scarves. I started to see the beauty in them.
She was the kind of person who never wasted a thing. In fact, at the end of every dinner, she would even swipe the table of her homemade bread crumbs, and throw them in the yard for the birds. I found inspiration in that. I saw the beauty in things from the past and started to think about how great it is for the environment to restore and reuse.
I started to think about what I could do to help the earth. So I started collecting things people would have otherwise thrown away. I spend every Saturday morning finding all the things people like my Grandmother cherished and saved. I found them at yard sales, junk shops, and even established a group of people who help do the same. And there it was...all of the things that meant so much to someone up for sale, waiting for a new home, waiting for someone like them to care for and cherish a vintage piece...a pair of earrings, a necklace, a scarf..all with a story, all with a previous owner who found beauty in it. I think about what event the item traveled to, and how it made someone feel beautiful, and how it makes me feel beautiful.
