Vintage Favorites

31 Jan

Lately it’s been some of the older things around my apartment that I find I use and/or cherish the most.  What’s new isn’t always my favorite so here are some of my favorite Vintage pieces you’ll find around my place.

I didn’t even know that my dad was an architectural photographer in his 20’s.  He recently gave me his camera from those days and although I have no idea how to use it, it means a lot to me!  It’s cool to know where my love for photos and architecture come from.

I just love this sugar jar that is a recent edition to my coffee bar!

My old guitar.  This isn’t exactly vintage but it’s been in its case for a while now until recently.  I’ve started to play again and really enjoy it.  I love playing any and everything but some of my favorites to play are Grace Potter and Naked and Famous tunes.

Vintage map tacks my dad also gave me.  I’m working on a DIY project with these at the moment so check back for some cool travel inspiration.  I love the color and the shape of the map tacks. I also love that they symbolize going somewhere.

And last but not least but cookie cutter lid jar that Vicki gave me for Christmas!  I love this idea so much.

The detail is so pretty on this jar.
