A Few of My Favorite Things...

Being a vintage addict can be tough. You find the dreamiest things but you just can’t possibly keep them all. I guess technically you could keep them all but then you would end up on an episode of Hoarders, and that’s just no fun.

When I return from buying trips, I do have to make tough choices in what to keep and what to sell. My five year old actually makes it even more difficult. As I carefully unwrap each item she exclaims, “oh Mommy – you just can’t sell that one!”, which only adds to my pain.
So the choices are tough and to ease the pain, I thought I’d put together a little slideshow of the things that I absolutely treasure and won’t part with. When I feel weak and try to keep just ONE MORE fun vintage find, I’ll go back to these pictures to remind myself of what I already have.

It might work. Maybe. An intervention just might be in order…




A special thanks to Laurie at her fun blog http://bargainhuntingwithlaurie.blogspot.com/ for letting me share with her friends as well!

That sewing basket reminds me of one that I used to have when I was in junior high and first started knitting. Love your grandmother's Wedgewood.

Hi Diane,
What great items you've decided to keep! I love the scoops and sewing machine. My grandmother gave me her machine and I have hers proudly displayed too! Thanks so much for sharing!
