The east morning light softens in early fall in a gentle transition to a new season.
You can almost forgive summer for slipping silently away without saying goodbye.
It all puts me in a vintage mood. But when am I not???
I wanted to share a few new vintage finds in their best light.
The newcomers here are the sundae glasses, and the creamware domed lid. You just have to accept that there will often be only three of something, and that an orphaned lid is something of a miracle. It's so often the other way around, finding things without lids!
I've never seen this shape in the glasses before, and they are so sinuous and sexy that I'll probably use them for champagne. I may even pretend that they're French!
The last newcomer is a lovely huck towel with my daughter's initials on it. She has a birthday coming up. What fabulous timing!
My heart just beats faster when I mix these colors and textures!
The tracery of fine embroidery on utilitarian huck cloth is an example of a beautiful irony in vintage things. Making the plainest of things exquisite.
The supporting cast is all vintage too, except for the cloche, and the reproduction apothecary pot under glass. But vintage things make them all feel at home.
I hope your enjoying a little change in scene!
Ciao! for now!
