i carry your heart

My grandmother was a bit of a collector, a hoarder perhaps you could call her (she’d just shake her finger at me for saying that). She’d be the first to remind me that she grew up in a time of the Great Depression, where everyone made the most of what they had and made it last until the last drop was gone.  Although we may have given her a hard time about collecting cool whip containers, I can't help but be facintated about the number of pretty things she stowed away in the nooks of her house.

We found a great collection of hats and fascinators.


A clip-on earring collection straight out of Anthropologie.


Vintage Vogue Pattern - will frame this above the vintage Singer sewing machine (didn't have time to photograph)



Colorful vases that I can’t wait to find a spot for in my humble abode.


Every girl needs her grandmother’s fur stole and long leather gloves.
  




My great-grandparent's vintage luggage pieces.

My favorite find of the weekend.  Two boxes of love letters from the Summer of 1947 <3
