Creating Vintage Charm

DSC06000I love the art of creating Vintage charm


DSC06000by staging finds to enjoy and photograph.


DSC06000It seems to be a new passion of mine.

DSC06000I love rummaging through old treasures

DSC06000around Vintage shops,

DSC06000and finding treasures in Antique markets.

DSC06000So that I can create vignettes with old finds.

DSC06000Well, since joining facebook it seems I am finding even more kindred spirits.

Oh how cool... I will be investigating further. Is someone off to Colby College? For real? Now that's cool, too. Two of my favorite people in all the world graduated from Colby.

I have always loved your photographs and your eye for beauty. It's one of my joys to visit you and see them.
