Cut from the Same Cloth......

I've been browsing through your wonderful blogs this week and I must say that I have strong feelings that us vintage girls are perhaps 'Cut From The Same Cloth'....there are soo many lovely lovely ones!


We have a great love of Mother Earth and all her gifts....
We just adore flowers!


We certainly have been finding the 'diamonds in our own back yard' as the saying goes and we're always treasure hunting...

We can always see the beauty in things that have had a past life........


They may be a little tired and worn, but we love them even more for this.......This is my dear Mum's childhood book of Alice in wonderland which is precious to me.........


There is always a furry friend or two.....Be they feline or mutlies......We just love them in our lives.......In fact they very much make our homes a home!

But we have one very big thing in common and that is we have chosen well, my friends, with very patient partners, who share our love of all things old too!


Mine just sighs and says "Don't we have one of those already?"....But what he doesn't know is we usually have a dozen!!! Hehe...Hope your weekend is kind to you!


Bye For now!

  4. Hello dear Maria! So true! I agree with all of your lovely words! Your vignettes are beautiful and your kitty is so sweet in the basket! I love your mum's old Alice in Wonderland book! I have an old copy but it does not have a gorgeous cover like hers does. I am so happy you have it and love it! Enjoy your weekend! Love, Paula xo

    I agree with what you said,
    things of the past, even if worn,
    are very valuable for us.
