My passion for all things vintage began at an early age. My grandmother gave me her vintage jewelry to play with and I kept it in a special pink sparkly vase. I would pretend it was treasure. I loved to look at it and play with it. I thought it was the most beautful jewelry I had ever seen.
My mother's family is from Portugal. My great grandmother used to weave and sew linens. Some of these have been well respected and have been passed down to me. So while I love everything vintage, I think I am most drawn to linens. I have seen incredible handmade doilies that have made my heart pound with affection. I know that sounds corny, but I so much respect the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into every bit of these pieces. I love that each piece is a unique expression and representation of the person who created it. There is so much beauty in that.
I look so forward to the swap and to seeing all of the brilliant creations. With best wishes for a fun-filled time...Rosamund
