I love collecting vintage items. I love the sense of nostalgia behind them. These are a few of my favorites.
These frames belonged to my grandmother. The mother of pearl inlay is so delicate.
I've collected piano rolls for a few years now. I use them in collages, as table runners and for covering ugly florescent light fixtures. I purchase this one from Urban Ore in Berkeley.
My family has a running joke about my love of ponies. Since I was a teenager, I've added a "pony" to christmas and grocery lists. Simply as a joke, of course. Nowadays, my family grants my wish by giving me little horse figures for Christmas. I've also started buying little horses for myself. Not all of them are vintage, but I love them just the same.
I like glass bottles. I love little glass bottles. The two on the right where acquired while I was visiting shops for my five faves post. The brown bottle was purchased from Found in Cannon Beach. The other bottle was purchased from Vintage Living in Manzanita.
What makes your heart go pitter patter? What do you collect?
