I'm vintage.

No, it's not my birthday. That doesn't come around 'til next month. But I was just unloading the dishwasher and as I was putting away these tongs, I realized that I received them at my bridal shower almost forty years ago. 

I started thinking about other things still in our possession four decades later, as well as all the things we've retained from our childhoods or that have been passed along to us by our parents and grandparents.  At first I felt amazed by their longevity, but then I realized that too many of the things we own could be classified as vintage. Now I don't know whether to be depressed or to open a vintage shop on Etsy. 

Yeah, maybe I'll keep the tongs. Someone else just discovered their usefulness.

The lost post....things worth sharing

I just found this post languishing in the draft folder.  I wrote it back on July 7 and I have no idea why I didn't ever publish it.  Maybe I thought I had.  The links are still pretty inspiring (to me, anyway)...and I just like the fireworks pictures. 

This post from Decor 8....because it makes me feel like I should be doing a better job for my home.

Beautiful pies I'll never make, but oh....they look so good!

The beautiful header on Treasures Found::Inspiration is Everywhere....because it makes my stupid fake pears header look ridiculous.  I should at least go buy some real pears (and maybe hire a professional photographer....if only....)

Fireworks....because I love them. I was lucky to get a couple of pretty good pictures on my phone, because that isn't the ideal way to photograph them.
