cloudy 18ºC

Vintage - definition: of high quality and lasting value, or showing the best and most typical characteristics of a particular type of thing, especially from the past.

I went shopping on Saturday at a very up market suburb, came across a lot of clothes that didn't look new, they were still in fairly good condition but just not new and were mostly brand named items.  I came to learn that they are described as "vintage".  I guess that is the new term for pre-loved / used clothes and items.

Came across this vintage "look" clock outside a shop in a very vintage looking town "Tilba Tilba" on the South Coast of NSW.

I wonder if the many modern things we create today will become the vintage of the future.  I'm not so sure that the designs we have today are anything compared to the vintage items we have and can admire now.  I just don't think they have the quality and the design to have the longevity that the designs from the past have. 

Keep dreaming . . .

home sweet home

21º sunny

A sweet sign I found in a shop on my last short holiday break in April, the wording is so sweet –
"An open heart makes an open home where friends are always welcome."

sunny 18ºC

Sometimes we just want to be hidden, away from prying and critical eyes, just to live the way we really want to.

Sunny 14ºC

We all like to have our own individuality but in the end some of us just tend fall back into the easiness of blending in, in this big wide world of ours.

Keep dreaming...
