Of course, my friend "G" is partially responsible for my addiction to vintage things. I've antiqued since the age of 20 or so, but it's always easier when a friend (or more) feels the same. Just this past year I learned about yard sales from her. I had never done that before as wearing someone else's clothes is just not for me. Little did I know that there is much more in a yard sale than clothes.
Her things are put together nicely and there are a lot of photos. So, this will be the first of three or four posts.
Thank you, G
Her kitchen just isn't complete without Chester. How about those eyes?
Are you engaged by holiday season jewelry and expensive car commercials? I am.
The 2011 Zales holiday commercial was especially captivating to me. It was beautiful. The people were beautiful. The snow was beautiful. The restaurant was beautiful. They know how to sell a diamond. But, I'm old and grown up now and past the "diamonds will make my life magical" myth, and I thought I was past being totally knocked off my feet by a song. Then I discovered where the music in the commercial came from.
(There was a You Tube montage video of all the different scenes in the 2011 commercials along with the music. It says it is now privatized and the only one I can find is spoofed with over-layed words.)
