I LOVE old things.

Here is a list of old things that I adore...

1. Old Advertising.

Because it makes me feel like these people actually liked their advertising...?

2. Old Toys.

 Because Lizzie is scary, but Dexter is smashing.

3. Old Cookery Items.

 Because it would be impossible to know what cakes and jellies they have held in the past.

4. Old Cases.

Because, again, you'll never know. 

5. Old Books. 

Because, well, of course!

6. My Old Typewriter

 Because it's rather nice. (And I bought it for £2!!)

7. My Old Singer.

Because it's beautiful, solid, and I bought it on the same day as the typewriter for £8!!

8. Old Cameras.

Because - Imagine the photos this took!! 

9. Old Railway Posters

Because they're local. (I don't know if they are really old or just pretending, but we love them all the same!)

10. Old Photos. 

Because they're family. 

There has been a huge fashion for retro and vintage for a long time now. For me, it's less of a fashion and more of an adoration. Fashions come and go, but these objects have so much history in them, and have given many people, including me, a lot of happpiness. So I am 100% sure that when (if) this fashion dies out, I won't be following the new one. I couldn't give some of these things up. 


  1. It's just that old things seem to have more..substance, a history or story eh? Love many of your things except that scary doll. Eeek!!
