I've always been a collector, treasure hunter and hoarder, but what I didn't realise is that it's practically genetic! Much to my surprise my father has a love for old goodies, antiques and treasures from the days gone by too. I guess I never realised to what extent until I went to see him yesterday. He handed my sister and I two bags full of all these beautiful pieces that really ought to be sitting in a museum somewhere. I love that quite a few things are actually from what were local businesses around the area where I live.
Seriously, how cute is all this stuff?! The only thing is that is is only the half of it and I'm not really sure what to do with everything. Imagine though if I kept it until I was older and then should it to my grandchildren... I'm sure it would blow their minds (or bore them half to death). Do you have any other vintage enthusiasts in your family or are you the black sheep?
