quaint handmade’s Favorite Vintage Things
Today, I enjoy the splendid pleasure of welcoming Cindy from quaint handmade to share her favorite vintage treasures. Cindy, whose blog she co-authors with her husband Scott, shares genuine, heartfelt ideas that consistently inspire me to contemplate the beauty of life. quaint handmade’s photographs and musings capture a life filled with thoughtfulness, and I especially enjoy Cindy’s new diptych series that finds the line that connects throughout all of Brooklyn. I am sure that many of you feel the same. Without further ado, I introduce quaint Cindy!
“My favorite vintage things were all my Mom’s. Although we shared many common interests like decorating, crafting and cooking, she was not one to covet old things or collect them. I, on the other hand, love vintage and have many collections. She also loved simple colors and asymmetrical lines while I love florals and symmetry. These items are very special not because they are have enormous monetary value, but because she loved them and so do I.”
“The green glass vase was my Grandmother’s and the purple one was my Mom’s. I don’t remember seeing them around the house growing up and suspect they were hidden for safekeeping because they are very delicate.”
“My Mom and I would take the bus about once a week to a local mall for some lunch and shopping. She loved simple, classic design and found this lovely statue in a Danish store for $.50. I would say it was one of her favorite objects.”
“The Hall Teapot was one of the first things she purchased when she married my Dad. I love the colors and it looks great with my floral china.”
Thank you so much Cindy for sharing your beautiful and sentimental treasures! Isn’t it wonderful how you can see a lovely connection between a blogger’s life and aesthetic through the items she treasures?
