Treasury Tuesday – Rustic Greys

As you all may have noticed, I love things with a bit of history and age. Worn by time and use, some items just get better in my eyes. Crisp, modern items have their appeal (perfect, shiny, and new), but pieces from long ago make me think, feel, and imagine. A good comparison is the difference between books in a Barnes & Noble and books in an old library. I love books either way, but the atmosphere around them is very different.

Today's treasury embodies that hidden library feel. This weather worn collection was curated by Nora at VintageNoraLane and she was kind enough to include my vintage button hair pins, which also totally made my day!

  7. I really love vintage pieces, but feel that one has to live in a certain type of house / apartment in order to introduce them to the space the right way. x

    1. Yes, I could see how that would be the case. I have a lot of heirloom pieces from my relatives that I try to incorporate and it can be challenging.

  18. So interesting you'd share a post about things from the past ... I recently did a story at work on preserving our city's past and how important is it ... so, I can agree that things with a story are pretty cool. Although, as much as I enjoyed visiting the library, the smell of old books is kind of gross. :P
