Here we are, the last few days of 2011. As I look back on this past year I am amazed at the talent, creativity and beauty that is shared via blogging. Whether it is thift store shopping, finding treasures in antique shops, home improvement or quilting, the internet has surely made it a very small world.
I'd like to introduce you to a very special lady. This is our sweet 96 year old aunt.
She has been my teacher, friend, and soul mate in treasure hunting for over 30 years. I used to tag along with her to yard sales, antique shops and all kinds of second hand stores. She loved paper weights, and she also loved vases. She had quite a collection of both. I recently found two beautiful tea/coffee cups for her birthday last month.
More importantly, she has loved my children and has been a huge part of their growing up years.
I like the term "Vintage things" better then old, or antique. It is a term that I learned about when I started participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday with Colorado Lady Suzanne as our hostess. Every week I love to visit the other blogs and see what great vintage treasures are being shared. Please be sure to stop by Colorado Ladys blog and take a peek at the other great Vintage Thingies.
Wishing you a very happy and blessed New Year!
