WWWAT: Vintage

As is always with these WWWAT's, I almost always find myself waiting until the last minute... based on the premise that I have NO idea what to do. I should know better by now that my camera has a built in brain and when I'm holding it, I somehow manage to tap into that. Which is indeed a good thing!

Ok so anyways, I'm going to explain a little bit of the loveliness that is contained in the house I work at. Maureen has very eclectic/vintagey/mixed with modern taste in her decorating style. It really wasn't hard to find an abundance of cool stuff to photograph. The hard part was picking which ones to use!

Also, I am going to deem this post as a "not so wordless" entry. Because I just can't help my fingers... they're typing out of control and I am afraid what they will do if I try to stop them!


This is the first thing I came across, a beautiful glass sugar bowl that just happened to be filled with pansies! When I walked in this morning, I actually noticed that the pansies along the pathway were looking rather blossomless... and this is why :)


These cupboard latches could not go unphotographed. They were literally begging me to take them. These are what most of the latches look like around the house... and I love them.


This doorknob is pretty much amazing. I really don't have a lot to say about it though... everything I thought of was promptly deleted... so I think i'm just gonna leave that one alone :)


this will be the only "wordless" picture i post today :)

This is about as vintage as you can get. I mean seriously, how often do you see wallpaper like this anymore? and then the chest handles that are getting their bokeh on... so lovely :)


This. This I saved for last. I stumbled across this as I thought I was done taking pictures. It's a collection of The Black Stallion books. They even smell vintage!

Well that's what I came up with. I truly had a great time this time around (of course I always do!) Many thanks to Rachel at AmericanMum for hosting! Head on over to her site and check out all the other entries!

The hinges... they make my heart sing!

I had wallpaper, like photo you posted, in my room growing up. It was absolutely lovely.

Beautiful pictures, Amanda!
