Vintage Delights


Dear Wonderful Reader,

Today I splurged and bought a new watch. As I ‘m walking down the department stores’s aisles trying to make it look like I “accidentally” stumbled upon my reflection  in the mirror to check myself out, I realized how vintage or Old World my watch looked and was just musing trying to figure out why I have this attraction towards things that are of the past. I guess of I’m just one of those people… I find myself rather enchanted by sentimentality or nostalgia. I don’t know why. Is it because feelings associated with sentimentality, and nostalgia give mere materialistic items more worth than they deserve… Is it because social sciences say that we buy things to reflect who we are to people and I’m rebelling against this “tech” filled age (while I’m using a laptop blogging *rolling eyes at myself) and sticking my guns out by sticking to values and traditions of the past… does that fit better with my emotional nature…

Furthermore, I went to TJ Max and saw this lovely retro fan for $50.00 that I really wanted and kept thinking about, but don’t worry I was a good human being and made it out without buying it since I don’t need it even though my treacherous mind was telling me how summer is coming up and how that my birthday is too coming up and how that should be my birthday present to myself or I could buy it and tell my sister that I already bought my birthday gift from her and ask her to pay me back or I could just buy it for a friend and what was so wrong with giving…

OK. The point is I like vintage stuff. I want all these items in my house/at my place (when I have one). In an effort to embrace minimalism and save $$ I’m going to satisfy my cravings by sharing with y’all those lovely vintage, retro, Old World, whateveryouwannacallit things who just “so happened” to be blue. So enjoy this guilt-free window shopping experience.

How it all started…
