today i'm joining in on another great party put on by Vintage Junky: the Multiples Party, in which we show off what we "can't get enough of", to steal her words.
here are a few things that i can't get enough of (but probably should)...
fans:: it was addiction, i mean... love...at first sight when i found my first fan (the little silver one to the right in the photo above) in my inlaws' basement several years ago. at present i own seven fans, which is a bit much for our little home. though i dearly love them all, the four shown in these two photos are the ones i've decided to keep. the other three will be going into my shop very soon!
silhouettes:: they are proof of a time other than my own. they lived and laughed and cried and picked flowers and loved and ate ice cream. and now they really are silhouettes sitting patiently behind the fragile veil of time. we see just enough to know of their existence, but not enough to know who they really were. it's a shame, really.
suitcases:: i would love to know where these old suitcases have travelled! the largest one (and my favorite) still bears the remnants of a U.S. customs sticker, holding on for its dear life.
and finally, i've got this dream of collecting lone vintage china pieces at thrift stores until i have a complete mismatched set (at which point a tea party will be a must). i always feel so bad when i see a little saucer all by its lonesome that no one wants, that i just have to bring it home. these creamers and saucers are the beginning of my collection....i haven't found any dainty little cups yet.
and now, if you haven't yet, you MUST get thee over to Vintage Junky to see her amazing goodness, enter for a giveaway, and see the other party goers' multiples!
