It's VTT Vintage Thingie Thursday! And for more vintage fun be sure to visit Suzanne HERE !
Can one suffer from VTT burnout? How can I live in a house filled with vintage and antiques and not know what to write about?
I decided to give Pyrex a rest,LOL and I was sitting around looking everywhere trying to figure out what to blog about.....Until I saw it. The Little Shelf. Funny how we don't really see the things we have, I guess we take them for granted.
Most of the objects on it are vintage. The shelf itself was made by Dan in the basement. I started collecting vintage things in 1976. The first year we went to Maine. There were antique malls and shops everywhere we looked. I always had a thing for tins so I was estatic to discover tobacco tins....I remember paying a dollar each. I didn't have a lot of money (I was 11!) but those finds were the beginning of a lifetime of collecting.
The painting was a gift I received from some of my parents friends in Italy, it is of the Italian countryside.
I started collecting old medicine bottles in 1976 too. That was the beginning of my love of glassware. How can it be different? My parents loved antiques: glassware,dishes,paintings you name it they loved it!
Of course I had to fit in a little piece of Pyrex! The cutte little delphite creamer added just the right touch of whimsy. Last on the shelf is a picture of Donald who was such a good and loving cat, he went to kitty heaven much too soon.
Have a happy VTT and keep on collecting!
