Just a quick post tonight to participate in tomorrow's Vintage Black Friday... Since everyone enjoyed the cream silk Victorian hat...I thought that perhaps you would enjoy seeing a few of my vintage black straw hats...
The child's hat with the flowers and velvet ribbon is particularly charming...
This random picture is a closeup of a bowl full of vintage letters from a flea market this fall.
And a closeup of an old iron mat that Rob and I bought while traveling about in Pennsylvania a few years ago. It hangs on the bedroom wall at the lake house and I use it as a magnetic/inspiration board. I love the hearts. To see other participants in Vintage Black Friday visit Jill at Gypsy Brocante.
I am excited to be going to Wilton, CT on Saturday to see Evi who will be participating in the Fine American Craftsman Show sponsored by the Wilton Historical Society. I am hoping to be able to take some pictures of her beautiful booth and amazing creations as well as the work of some of the other wonderful artists. All I can say about this week at work is thank goodness it's almost Friday! :) Laura
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
