Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ January 27, 2013

 
I'm a nostalgic person.  I love things that are old, well used and loved.  When I redecorated an extra bedroom I went for the vintage look.   I call this room my "nostalgia room."  I've decorated with items that belonged to my grandmother, my mother, and myself.  Yes, I'm old enough to have antique items that have always been mine. I also searched flea markets and antique stores looking for other items.
 




When I read this week's prompts for Scavenger Hunt Sunday with Ashley Sisk, they make me think about things that are vintage, so I went hunting in my "nostalgia room."
 

The prompts were:
lace
bling
wood
fuzzy
fabric


lace
There are rows and rows of lace on my bride doll which is over 50 years old.
 
 
 
bling
A little bling still remains in this vintage necklace.


 
wood
Little birdhouses made of wood hanging from a bookshelf.
Not antique, but I have a lot of birds in this room.


 
fuzzy
My first teddy bear is still soft and fuzzy.
He's a Cubbi Gund bear made in the 1950's.
 
 
 
 Fabric
I found my name stitched on this linen fabric handkerchief.
 
 
This is not my normal style of photography,
but it was enjoyable roaming around my room,
picking up my treasures,
and
taking photographs of them.
 
It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage was once brand new.

  3. Oooh I like the POV on that lace shot and the tones. Your teddy is cute. I don't believe I have any of my fave stuffies from being a kid. I should have kept one and that blanket that stayed with me until like age 12. Cute birdhouses, antique or not. Happy day Cathy.

  15. I loved all your shots. The ears on your teddy bear remind me of my first teddy bear. I wish he had been in as good of shape, then I would still have him to.
