Old Stuff & Junk Shops

Dear World- It’s me Tilly

From junk shops to markets, getting hold of an old-fashioned sofa, armchair or coffee table for a bargain price is so much fun! Once I’ve got hold of my ancient or unique item then the fun can really start as I apply paint, upholstery and my own style with a twist. Now, add in a vintage hat- jewelry and fashion find and I am a happy girl.

Vintage HatI’ve recently been obsessed by all things vintage, from furniture to fashion, 1920-30 Advertisements to (my favourite) hats from days gone by. If you were to ask me why , the answer would be simple- because it is friggin awesome.

The term “vintage”  refers to products or themes dating back to the time period broadly between the 1920’s to the 1980’s.  I’m not a big fan of the ‘retro-70’s and 80’s’ and personally don’t put it in the ‘vintage’ era- but hey… each to their own style, taste and passions.

The ‘experts’ in fashion and decor say this is fad, but what isn’t? What inspires me today may not in a year or ten years- but so what? I’m all about living in the moment and exploring what makes me happy- and today what inspires me is vintage.”everything!vintage-pic-

I hope you find what inspires you today, brings a smile to your face and fun with whatever it is. Living in the moment is one of life’s fabulous options.

True happiness is… to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.~Lucius Annaeus Seneca~
