Perhaps you know I love a good dose of vintage, a large part of my house are all vintage findings and even my closet has an abundance of vintage clothing. I’m always looking for flea markets and thrift stores everywhere. Even abroad.
Today some vintage with a memory. Antiques from the family. Everything is very dear to me and I am proud that it is in our home right now. My father visited me last weekend and he took fifteen boxes full of childhood memories. I found things of my other and cried, and fund hilarious school notebooks and laughed. Even my father’s brilliant Sinterklaas surprises were there, as well as my very first attempt to write a book. I even won a Grand Prize.
My grandfather made that wooden coffin for my grandma in 1924. Her initials are there. I have memories of the coffin, same as the antique chair from my grandmother.The antique side table was from my grandparents as well. I think it’s beautiful! And that crochet blanket made by my grand-grandmother is amazing.
