I think "vintage" is a fun word. It has replaced the word antique. That would make antique antiquated (hee hee).
I also like the word vintage because it gives value to the things I love.
Vintage bowls. There has been a lot of collections of Pyrex. Mostly Pyrex with color. I have a couple of those pieces. What I love is the white Fire King bowls. They just seem so clean and fresh. Vintage cooking accessories. A sifter, a glass measuring jar, melon baller. Things that were found in my Grandmother's kitchen.
Vintage glassware. Bowls, pitchers, refrigerator containers, candy jars, storage jars. My Mom has always used these beautiful things.
And my dirty little secret.....
Vintage sewing supplies. Ribbon, zippers, bindings, thread.....and my buttons. I have a lot of buttons. Most of them are still on their original cards. They are beautiful!!
