The seasons of life come and go. With each season we gather keepsakes that become sacred markers of where we've been. This season of my life takes me on the hunt for treasures of remembrance. Come along with me as I gather souvenirs to keepsacred.
After a bit of a rest I am back at it in my Etsy shop. In preparation for a yard sale this week, I am listing a bunch of items and unloading the rest for yard sale prices.
I thought it would be a good idea to stay away from estate sales and thrift stores during this clearing out time, so I'll keep it virtual today.
I am sharing my favorite bloggers and the vintage inspiration they supply.
My blogging friends really do help open my eyes to new possibilities. Maybe it's another vintage item to collect, maybe it's a new way to use something I've had for a while.
In no particular order - because I love them all so much for different reasons (kinda like my kids) here are a few of my favs........
WW1 Era Photo Cards
I love old paper (aka ephemera). But these beauties? To die for. My grandmother's old soldier pics (see my Veteran's Day post) are going in these babies.
Courtesy of Vintage Rescue Squad, you must, must, must subscribe to her blog to get the scoop. I am so glad I ordered one of each as soon as she listed them.
When I see a hand tatted or crocheted doily at a thrift store or tag sale, I have to buy it. More than once I've wondered if a girl can own too many. Along comes Ashley Ann and her adorable version of a doily table runner. Ashley inspires me to take what I have and make something beautiful.
