I am not sure about you, but I am in love with vintage & antique collectables. I have the ability to browse vintage shops for many hours, submersing myself in the beauty of all the items we seldom see in every day use in current society. I am fascinated with the design and pride people took in looking after their items and am always amazed at how antiques are able to out live their owners and carry such rich history.
I have a ‘bottom drawer’ in which I am slowly putting together items that will one day fill my own home. It is not easy deciding what piece to buy to add to my collection however I try to keep to a theme and resist the urge of buying junk! This is not easy though especially when you are in a buying mood! Every so often I buy a few memorable items when traveling something that will add character and have function when in my own home.
Today these beautiful cake forks became mine, adding them to my ‘bottom drawer’. Something different. I often find not many people use cake forks these days & in the future they may become an unusual item to find, at the rate technology is moving and shaping the world and society!
I do look forward to the day I am able to unpack my ‘bottom drawer’ and display all the items I have collected over the years in my home. Each telling a story of their own.
I would love to hear if any of you have a ‘bottom drawer’ or collect antiques.
