For the Love of Old
I'm sharing a few precious items I've collected
over the years which surround me
in my studio where I create!
There is always the mystery surrounding the stories behind
these old cabinet cards and the
collection of the antique
so beautifully decorated and bound
but for me, personally, I am also very
attracted to the incredibly beautiful fabrics and laces
used in the dresses of these women and young girls
as well as the quality and detail which is so absent today!
Clothing was meant to last and you only owned
one special dress often which was worn
for special occasions!
Even the embroidery - so beautiful!
One can barely understand how they could
use such intricate pieces under glass
for an ash tray!!!!!
Even these little German porcelain dolls' under garments
were hand stitched so beautifully and neatly!
You will, of course, always find a piece of beautiful old lace
in my studio because I don't have to tell you that that is
another addiction of mine!
Everything was so well made
including these beautiful locks with their
it matters not that the
surface becomes damaged with time -
the rust is treasured even more!
Cash books and journals were used for every day purposes
and their leather covers last for centuries!
