i tried to put together a vintage and modern hodge podge (since i love the vintage clutter) and i LOVE how the old map of my dad's new hampshire hometown (in 1867 and 1967 - there is little difference between the two maps), the handpainted birds from a french book, and ben's old pittsburgh pirate's pennant all came together. my grandparents dancing in the 1950's, dried roses from ben on valentine's day two years ago (they were not dried when he gave them to me, that's obvious though, right?), and my mom's high school picture adds to the charm and the family memorabilia. oh she's gonna kill me for posting this.
yes my picture is off center. i'm still learning. by the way, take a look at tidytipsy's thrifted decorating. i'm telling you, i'd swap homes and clothes with her in a second.
