Vintage is new again...

What do you think of when something is described as vintage?  Do you think of a certain decor, rotary-dial phones, or the Campbell's Soup kids?  Maybe you think of a style of clothing...granny-chic is becoming very popular these days.  If you are like my father, you think of a wine made from grapes that were grown and harvested in a single specified year.

For me, when I hear the term vintage, I think about old classic movies and yellowed postcards from days when everyone's handwriting seemed to look the same.  I also think of tools like old-fashioned sewing machines and typewriters.  Regardless of your vision, what is old always seems to be new again to someone -- probably the reason my sister and I love to shop antique stores for old vintage items that we can repurpose into something new.

And this is probably why when I saw the vintage inspired paper lines from Bo Bunny and Prima, I knew I wanted to make an album with them.  Images of post marks, old clocks, railroad tickets, and brittle yellow newspaper remind me of slower, quieter times when handmade items were the way it was done.  I would love to see someone's vintage photos preserved in this little album ....

As always, thank you for visiting Artsy Albums.  To purchase this album, or anything else handmade by me, please visit my shop at:
