{ snippets of time }

Why do I love vintage so???

Each object be it a toy, a vintage book, or silver tea set,
has had a life all it's own before me.
When I find a well worn piece of furniture, or a hand made quilt,
I imagine the family that piece of furniture watched over,
and the lives that quilt kept warm at night.
New things have no story, they have no history, they have no nostalgia.
When I was young, I loved new things.
More and more as I age, I crave the past, and the history of a well worn and well loved object.

We cannot avoid becoming vintage ourselves,
I just hope I have the opportunity to be well worn and well loved.
I hope others will look back on my time with nostalgia and love,
the same way I look at these lovely snippets of time.

*peace & love*
