Collecting

I collect objects from 1920's - 1970's and I love history and I think it is how I connect to the past and my family history. I also love so many of the design elements and care that was taken to make many objects from past eras so special.

So true

I used to thrift shop with my Mom. She passed away from Cancer Dec Sometimes when I go shopping at thrift stores, I feel like she is still on the hunt for great things with me, pointing out cool stuff.
