SHOPPING: LIVING IN ANOTHER ERA?

While I was shopping for a bathroom light fixture I realized...
I should have lived in another era...

oh, so me...




join the tea party at Silken Purse
and check out this tea cup here...


also while shopping I fell in love with
 these rose knobs for my vanity...


loving this new, old looking handmade pocketbook...


and always hats.


maybe I chose the new face for my Brayton Cottage because I want to dress like the girl in the photo.


timing is key..


but I continue to dress in my unconventional style


here is  my dressing area


regardless of the era I live in.


Remember I wore this hat to the wedding that I was also the wedding planner?
So have fun with your fashion choices, make your own style and have fun!

So true Karen. Why conform? Older clothes are better made anyway. I wore a hat to church last Sunday with a large sparkly vintage brooch on the side. You would like it.

Dear Karen,
I think I lived with you in another time. I long for it everyday. Where did it go? I sometimes can't believe I am here in 2011 because I truly don't live here now! We could have been next door neighbors:)

I'm glad you're dressing in your own unconventional style...that's as it should be. Thank you for sharing these photographs from another era. I think I'll dust off my hats... ":o)

I love the vintage clothing, old Ford Model A's, the 1930's era, even back to the late 1800's. I follow no rules in my decorating...I just go with what I like. Almost everything in our home is old and has a story!
Happy WW!
Faye

You have a lovely romantic style. Love that light fixture, and the clothes. It's all oh so you.

I feel the same way about living in another era...I love, love all things vintage. But, sigh, even nostalgia is not what it used to be. Hugs, Gayle (already a follower, please follow me if you have not already.

I should have lived in another time myself!! What a sweet little tea cup that is, I love the flower inside and what a pretty color. Have a great VTT!

LV said...

I have been in other times, and I will take today over them.

I agree, the vintage clothing is so beautiful! The advantage to today is still wearing the clothes with the modern conveniences. Great photos, love the tea cup!

Doni said...

Oh how pretty!! Another time another place. Don't we all want to live another time and place? I think my great grandmothers and I could have been marvelous friends!! Thank you so much for joining me today for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!
