Out with the new in with the old?!?

I love vintage stuff. There's nothing like the patina on a great piece of antique jewelry, the retro pattern on a scarf, the rick-rack on a kitchy-Mrs. Clever apron or even the heft of a zipper on a great, little, beaded, black, dress. I love the thrill of the hunt while scouring the local antique shops or the bidding war (as long as I win) on Ebay. Or better yet the treasures that are passed down from generation to generation (more on this in future posts). I ponder if anyone (hopefully my kids... someday) will covet any of the objects or attire I have accumulated over the years as a great vintage piece... or will all my stuff end up on a jammed-packed-full rack at the local Goodwill? I inherited a few really fabulous objects from my late grandma. I love these fun, little accents because they are as beautiful and classic as she was. Just like this cute, petite, vase of a pin. I wear it on the lapel of a sweater or summer-weight-jacket and tuck in a fresh stem from my window box (***or a planter outside a client's project). I have no clue why the water doesn't spill out when you crouch over to tie a shoe, but I have managed to stay dry. I think it is a must have for each girl's summer repertoire and a sweet gift idea for a special gal. Not quite ready to jump on the vintage band wagon? Think of it as another great way to help out Mother Earth by recycling a bit.

***Today, was so frigin' windy... while walking down "the Mall" to meet with a client my pansy was sucked outta my little vase so quickly I couldn't catch it. So I did what any resourceful gal would. I plucked one right out of a "public" planter, in front of a BIG name hotel, tucked it right back in place and keep on my merry way. Well, a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Now you gotta get back to work-until tomorrow my friends.

You must have had a very cool grandma - she has the BEST jewelry that you were lucky to inherit!
