I'm a big fan of vintage things, and old things generally. I love the way they were so beautifully made, how carefully kept. I like to think of the people who used them, taking delight in collecting used objects together.
These are my September finds.
This beautiful teacup and saucer is so unusually shaped, and I love the simple berry motif.
I love these carefully curated postage stamp albums, particularly the birds and botanic pages. I do wish I knew what the title said, or even what language it's in...
Two clear ink wells and a cobalt blue poison or medicine bottle. The ink wells are mid-century and the poison bottle is Victorian.
These are not strictly vintage, though the collage does have vintage pieces, but they are so pretty that I had to show them off! They were made for me and gifted to me by one of my favourite artists Alexandra Glew
. A lovely surprise in the post and I can't wait to frame them.
I'm such a lucky Rachel!
