Music Accompaniment: Stand By Me - Ben E. King Sorry that it cuts off the beginning, but I just love live versions. Plus, watching the kids dance in the background is extra entertainment.
I grew up in a home where our decor was a combination of antiques and items that look like they could be antiques. Additionally, I was taken into every antique store my mom happened to see. Although it started out as something that was not necessarily my choice, I have happily decided to pursue it. There is something so awesome about buying an item that has a history, something that was new 60 years ago. It is difficult to explain, although I am sure other antique enthusiasts understand and I hope that others can grasp an understanding of what I mean. There is also an obvious desire for anything that is no longer produced.
Although all new items, minus the wooden box and doily, this particular set up looks antiquated. It’s just a small example of how my mom decorates with antique style.
I’ll be sharing pictures and stories throughout the week about antiques in my home.
