    I think my favorite vintage item I own would have to be a piggy bank my grandmother gave me for my 18th birthday, which use to be hers when she was about the same age.
    Thanks!

  15. My favorite vintage item would be a matching pink velvet sofa and chair set I found in an old warehouse. Curvy Victorian lines and carved dark wood feet and arms. Insanely feminine and over the top!! I love your blog and can't wait to see what you post next!

  16. I own many vintage items, but my favorite would have to be my grandmother's one armed chair. It has a lady figure (almost harp like) on one side and the cushion was embroidered by my aunt. This chair has been passed down many generations.

  20. I love your blog and I am a follower.

    When I saw your 1943 Jane Eyre book with the etchings I knew I was home. I just bought the same book for teenage daughter. I have been trying to get her to read the book for years to no avail. Something about that copy impressed her and she is finally reading and loving the book.

    My favorite vintage item is my 1951 black and gold singe sewing machine.

  24. Good heavens that bracelet is adorable!

    My favorite vintage item that I own is a pair of 1970s maroon leather boots. I had been looking for ages to find a pair like them and they just magically appeared in salvation army and in my size too. I wear them all the time.

  27. my favorite is in a lock box at the bank (my mother doesn't trust me with it yet, lol) and it is a cameo ring that used to be a necklace, but my grandmother had it remade when she got married. I love it to pieces and it's a reminder of her.

  30. I just joined as one of your followers as well as linked to you site on my blog (http://sonenskadu.blogspot.com/)
    My favourite vintage item I own is a few of my old toys I came across the other day when I cleaned out the cupboards. It was packed away really deep as I only had 2 boys, so girly toys wasn't in high demand. But that all changed when we had a surprise baby girl after 9 years last June. Now suddenly girly things are very much IN!

  31. My favorite vintage item is a 1950's strapless cocktail dress with Chantilly-style lace tiers in a stunning Spanish red. It's been worn by me to several special occasion dances and is always a great hit.

    I just joined as a follower and am so impressed that you have so many followers so quickly! Bravo!
