Recycle! Buy vintage!

Do you like to intersperse your lovely modern life with cute vintage bits and pieces. Things that remind you of childhood or special times past? There are particular items and styles for me that take me back to special times and places. For instance I really have a soft spot for hobnail milk glass. It reminds me of sitting in church as a little'n with sunlight streaming through the big windows. The elderly ladies of the congregation would often have place a hobnail vase of fresh flowers on top of the organ. It's easy to pick up darling little pieces from recycle centers, thrift stores, ebay and etsy. So next time your looking for that special piece how about thinking vintage first?
