Timeless Treasures

Featuring .peaches.

“I love older things
that people have
used and cherished.
They have personality,
character, and soul.”

– Anna Hillegass –

I love this quote. It reminds me of my mother and my mother’s house. She has been a collector of antiques since before I was born. I grew up stopping at every garage sale we passed and on the weekends, following a whole list made from ads pulled from the classified section of the local newspaper. I was taught very early how to spot Roseville, McCoy, Weller, Depression Glass, Carnival Glass and so much more. Church sales were the best and I always came home with some new toy and some new clothes or shoes to play dress up in.

I didn’t really appreciate antiques when I was in my teens and early 20’s.  It wasn’t until I started collecting things of my own that I paused to give thought about the previous owner and the item and now that I am even older (mid 50’s) I think about it even more.
My mother is in her mid 80’s and has a house, basement, attic and barn filled with treasures. I know there will come a day when my siblings and I will face the sad task of going through those treasures, keeping our personal favorites and then what? I know we can’t keep everything but how do you let ANY of it go?

This is why I now appreciate my vintage treasures even more. Surely my vintage children’s books were once held lovingly by a small child or by a loving parent reading bedtime stories to their little ones. This is why I, now, also smile when I read them and hold them lovingly. They do indeed have personality, character and soul.

Today I am super excited to be blogging items from a new sponsor! I was fortunate to be chosen to be on the .peaches. blogging team and am excited by this post, my first of many to come. Several of the pieces are direct from my own inventory as I have loved and purchased  many .peaches. creations in the past. The featured item, Alina’s Armoire Bar, is front and center.  You get the armoire bar in 4 colors, as well as the cup and bottle cluster decor. You can find the set at FaMESHed and check the credits for all of the other .peaches. items in the photo. Enjoy your treasures!
