No, not my husband, who at 65 thinks he is old now. =)
But, inspired by all things old, or made to look old.

Old pictures, and Collages using vintage finds

I love old things to. There is some comfort in the fact that they survived and never made it into the trash can.

All of these pictures appeal to me! Each of those items is a treasure. My favorites are the rusty lamp parts and the illustrations in that vintage book. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Barbara Jean. I was just thinking of you and wanted to pop in and say hi. I hope all is wonderful in your world this morning.

Love all the beautiful things you've shared. I really do think older has a lot to be said for it ~ people or things.

oooxxx's....Tracy :)

Barbara, thank you so much for your kind words on my blog! It's blogs like yours that really inspire me to start blogging again! I am completely in awe of your gift shop- it's been kind of a secret dream of mine to open my own shop and fill it with books (mostly beautiful old used ones, of course), candles, pretty (probably handmade and/or old) things and chocolate. Basically, everything I love. So I applaud you for living your dream!! Keep up the beautiful work!
