Vintage lover!

I love vintage things. Not stylish vintage from the 50s or 60s. Bright, colourful, gawdy, cheesy vintage from the 80s. Nostaglic items from my childhood [born in 1983]. Sweet, wholesome vintage from the 50s. I have super long wishlists on Etsy full of items I wish I could buy! Care Bears, vintage Disney, old books, toddler clothes. Knick-knacks that remind me of my childhood that I would love Evan to have. I could spend all day on Etsy trawling through their vintage goodies. What do you all love to look at on Etsy? 

Here are a few of my favourite things! 


 








I have a feeling I may be stuck in the wrong era! I'd love a home full of these kind of knick-knacks. I love the nostalgia, the memories, the simplicity. I've made a previous post about simplicity. I love enjoy the internet, TV shows and films and being able to fill up an ipod with my favourite music. However, I do love simpler things. Traditional things. I loved my childhood, playing with Barbies and watching a few of my favourite shows. The colours, the food, the excitement. Trips out were special occasions and not done every weekend. Holidays were something to look forward to once a year. Such wonderful, happy memories that I hope to create for my own family.
