Best post I've read in a long time. 
"A childhood without Pinterest crafts can be magical. A childhood without a single vacation can be magical. The magic we speak of and so desperately want our children to taste isn't of our creation, and therefore is not ours to dole out as we please. It is discovered in quiet moments by a brook or under the slide at the park, and in the innocent laughter of a life just beginning."

Weird historical photos you won't believe were actually taken! #vintage   #ushistory   #historicalphotos  
It’s almost impossible to believe that the things depicted in these photos occurred since, well, the advent of photography. It’s almost unfathomable that life was so different a mere 50, 75 or 100 years ago. These photos serve as an excellent reminder that the things we know and are familiar with change rapidly. Imagine how …

KCRW did a wonderful story about the vintage,vacant LA County, "Hall of Justice" building and the notorious criminals that once resided in it.  It's being renovated! A great read!!

The oldest "message in a bottle" is found!   #vintage   #messageinabottle  
The beer bottle was tossed into the sea in 1913 and recovered by a fisherman last month. It is thought to be the oldest ever "message in a bottle."

Attic 17's featured item of the day!  A rare tin-type photo of two men, one with a guitar and one with a violin. A two man band!  #vintage #tintypephotography #atticseventeen   #vintagephotography

Story
Tagline
because the past tells a most beautiful story......
Introduction
I really think that the best stories are laying around, in the homes of people you know.
Old photos, a piece of embroidery your crazy aunt worked on or maybe a dusty journal that lays claim to the bookshelf, but never is investigated.

About 8 years ago, while newly married, I started venturing to local garage and estate sales and realized there is an entire world of wonder.

Sure, there's a lot of junk, but if you take a moment or two and look beyond the ugly brass doorknobs or paisley couch.....there's a virtual graveyard of beautiful objects.

So, yeah.
I love vintage and I would love to meet you, too.
