Vintage. I love that word. It evokes a feeling of comfort, it draws memories, it make us nostalgic for a sweeter, simpler time. Finding a vintage object means that someone cared enough to keep it, care for it and preserve it.
If you come to my house today, you will find a living, breathing vintage object- me!
You won't find me looking like Jean Thorn, the woman on the cover above. No, I'll be mucking-out the hen house, weeding the garden, hanging laundry and sprucing up the house for guests tonight, keeping those vintage traditions of long ago.
So, Happy Birthday, Vintage Me. I think fifty is going to be a very good age to be.
