matilda with an old, loved bunny from our beloved mary.
i hope that matilda will inherit the same love for the old that both sam and i have. he favors military paraphernalia, while i prefer baubles. apples oranges.
all of these pieces have some sort of story, although some are only "vintage-inspired."
christmas is slowly making its way in to our home. isn't he delightful?? i found him at one of my favorite stores.
one of my newest treasures is this metal basket perfect for housing some of my crafty things.
matilda's winter coat, a purchase made by grammy before she was even conceived. i just love it.
i dream of owning a store that sells only vintage school supplies. i love them that much. this is sam's chicken. i wanted a lovely list of milk and eggs. here's to keeping it real. that old piggy bank was a gift from sam's father to his mother when they were engaged. they had to fill it up before they got married. isn't that sweet?
above most things i love vintage items for children. how great is this babar alphabet with yellow metal frame? this was a birthday gift to matilda from brittany. it's a treasure. there is also a collection of vintage ceramic wall hangings from jessica and her mama, and a collection of old band-aid tins from sam's parent's house.
i'm getting in to making ornaments. here's my first...
where are your go-to places for vintage treasures?
