Going Vintage

mam for gift blog gave that vintage gift wraps

Having a massive case of the VT's (vintage tremors from lack of antiquing) at the moment. It's getting pretty bad. So bad that I went to digging through past finds to get the feel of discovering neat things. It actually sort of worked... sort of, here are the random shots of proof.

Up first, an all time favorite, gift wrapping papers! The 60's never cease to amaze me.

Men use to have the best cologne and aftershave bottles back then.

Loving all of the lady like bags coming out for spring... the bone shakers on this vintage one made me nab it.

One of the reasons I adore vintage and antique gifts so much is how, quite often, I have no idea what the heck it is let alone how it's used. Lots of research and then I find out it's something I needed badly. Coddled eggs coming soon, promise! See part 2 here.
