Although I really should not be devoting any more time to the internet than I already do, I feel compelled to start a new blog. I have been blogging since 2004, I think, and since then, I’ve had six or seven blogs. Two were for classes, such as this one, one was an emo, whiny, LiveJournal account that I will NOT link to due to its embarrassing nature. One was a pop-culture blog where I found it necessary to review absolutely every movie, book, fashion trend, celebrity mishap, etc. that occurred on a daily basis. (I have to admit, that was the most fun blog to write.) I also have my jewellery site – not really a blog, but updated somewhat frequently – and my classroom blog that I update weekly. Last year, I had my wedding blog, and I really miss having a space to share creatively. Thus, I’m creating this blog.
Every one of my blogs featured, at some point, my love of absolutely everything vintage. I can’t remember NOT loving items of days gone by. Visiting my grandma’s house was always an absolute joy, as she had so many vintage items, perfectly in tact. I have often wondered if I love vintage things so much because I loved my grandma’s house, or if I loved my grandma’s house so much because I love vintage things. Regardless, I’m constantly drawn to all things vintage – particularly mid-century modern fashion, decor, architecture, furniture, and kitchen supplies. I used to post pictures of my garage sale finds and renovations, and I am going to use this blog for that main purpose. Whether people read it or not, that’s up to them, but I just need a place to keep track of all of the aesthetically pleasing vintage visions I see and create for myself!
