A VINTAGE AFFAIR

These days I find myself drawn to antique and vintage collectibles, so much so that I almost feel displaced in time. Antique and vintage are both terms that refer to an object that can give us a glimpse of what the world was at that time. I take particular pleasure in surrounding myself in what I consider vintage appeal. I wonder how my taste could change so much in furniture and art and I realize it’s the uniqueness or quality that speaks to me.

I have had fun adding some of my own touches to certain pieces, like the pair of antique cherubs who were missing their flute and violin bow. I used a piece of bamboo for the bow and downloaded the  music from the Titanic  “My heart will go on” and rolled It up and placed it where the flute should be.

The lamps I have added paint and made them a touch more brilliant than what they already are.. they carry their own past  and I have added a touch of  myself to them. Usually I have no idea where I will place them in my home but soon they are exactly where they should be and they have claimed me.
