Inspiration Workshop #14: Vintage

I'm participating in the Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!
The Prompt: Vintage
I always get excited when I get my hands on cool, vintage stuff.  I love old/retro items.  Though you may never get the opportunity to hear it, most old stuff has a story.  ...& There's a pretty good chance that your old collectibles weren't mass-produced over in China.  ...& that is a wonderful thing! 

Here are some of my personal favorite vintage pieces:


     Top to bottom:
1. Our 1975 IH Scout II 

2. Ok, so this one is a stretch...but it represents Vintage wine, & who doesn't love vintage wine?

3. My Grandmother's Production Soldier war pin from WWII.
She was Rosie the Riviter!

4. My Vintage Jane Shilton Leather Clutch - which just so happens to be up for sale at The Paisley Tab!


Do you have a favorite vintage item?  
This stuff gets me excited so...please share!!

P.S. I'm heading into the Labor Day weekend a little early. 
This will be my last post for a few days.  

I'll be back next week with some fresh blogging material!  Can't wait!

{ Have a FUN // SAFE // GORGEOUS long weekend! }

    How cool -- a real-life Rosie the Riveter in the family!

  2. My grandmother's cousin left all of us a ton of vintage bags and shoes from Neiman's and Sak's back in the day. Too bad her feet were so tiny! Oh, well - handbags always fit perfectly:) Love your choices!

  3. Great Vintage Inspiration!
    Have a wonderful long weekend!
