I.heart.vintage.everything. It's pretty much as simple as that. Looking around my house, it is on my walls in the form of mirrors, prints and paintings. It is on my shelves in the form of dishes as loads of bird figurines! I have an unhealthy addiction to vintage lamps...some of them have not even been re-wired so I won't plug them in but they are just stunning to look at! I'm also loving vintage Vogue covers right now and am trying to figure out how to work those into the house.
What is it that so appeals to me about vintage? Well, number one, things are not made now like they were then. Everything seems to be so cheaply made and superficial now. Vintage pieces have heart and soul and personality that you cannot find on the shelves of Homegoods (not that I don't love me some Homegoods!) or any modern day furnishings store. Their character speaks to me - vintage is in me. (so cheesy!! but it is!) I also love the possibilities that vintage brings.
You can take a not so pretty but well made vintage piece and make it into something fabulous. That is the best part of vintage I think, giving something old a new life! Do you seriously not just drool all over this piece??
Do you work vintage pieces into your world? I'd love to hear how. Stop on over to Gussy Sews for more vintage inspiration.
