How many times have we been asked this question at a social event?
How do I describe my life? I don’t design anything. I don’t create anything. I’m not an artist, or a musician, or a designer, or a writer. I don’t get up every day and go to an office and work in the… Continue

Vintage Pink Roses Pitcher And Bowl
Many years ago...in a far away land....
That would sound like a good opening for my life history! Or...many 'moons' ago...when I was a young tomboy, playing 'pirates', or 'cowboys and Indians' with the boys...and I always wanted to be the Indian....
In my early years, and even into young adulthood, I detested pink! Maybe that… Continue

When I had started my vintage and antiques website, I had thought it would be more difficult to find a wide range of vintage items with an ocean, or nautical theme. But I have found it to be quite the opposite. Vintage jewelry, clothing, accessories, linens, and home decor, are more prevalent, especially in this area! As my nautical website grows, so will its' 'sister' blog! I do think...this pair of lovely mermaids represent the idea of my website quite… Continue

Although style trends change from year to year , antiques to vintage have survived the test of time. Family heirlooms are still cherished for the treasures they are. The fact that a family has passed an item down from generation to generation has always been a tradition and one that never fails to touch my heart. The collector is still actively collecting even in this slow ecomony , only not as actively as before. But, you can view the auction sites and see that collectors are holding onto… Continue

Hello All! Just like to share with all you lovers of shabby chic, vintage and antiques of all kinds, recycled, upcycled, reused, and beautiful vintage and antique home decor and furnishings, a place called Posh Palm in Sarasota, FL.

I have loved and followed their web boutique for a long while and it was just last week I found where their boutique was featured in the Victoria Bliss magazine. To my wonderful surprise I found they are only 45… Continue

I'm so happy that my vintage hankies sold today but, I have to be honest, I'm going to miss them. Are you ever just a tad bit sad to see something go?

Would someone please explain to me why I haven't been active in this community since Christmas. I guess it has something to do with sick kids, major surgery and going back to work part-time. But I'm back in action, part-time anyway, and wanted to share with you some pictures of my Russel Wright collection. I blogged about it
a couple of months ago and I'm sure my friends at Vintage Village will get a… Continue

Norman Rockwell (1894-1978)
While researching Norman Rockwell's paintings and illustrations, I happened upon a mystery. A mystery that surrounded one of his most popular Post covers and some have said one of his best works of art.
September 25, 1954 - "Breaking Home Ties" appeared on the cover of "The Saturday Evening Post". The scene has a father and son sitting on the running boards of an old truck. One might interpret that the son is leaving home to attend… Continue

Hi, everyone! I'm an on-line seller and I sell full-time since March of 2008. I love being my own boss and being able to make my own decisions. I decided to start my own business after being involved in a major car accident, which resulted in not being able to work for almost two months, I had no income other than my job and being a CNA I couldn't perform the duties of my job. So, I had NO money and I think that was the worst financial time I have ever had. I knew I needed to do something that… Continue
