Alphabe~Thursday "V" is for Vintage


I love vintage things. I have a passion for old noise makers.

I used them on Halloween and New Year’s Eve when I was a child.

They bring back good memories and I love their bright and cheery graphics.



Do you collect vintage things and why?

I love vintage things too but have always been scared of clowns.When I see a vintage item from my childhood, it does bring back many good memories.

I love vintage, especially furniture. Never would have thought of noisemakers. Very cool. (Though I agree with Nonna on the clowns thing!)

I love vintage things! I collected avertising tins until they nearly ran me out of my own house! Switched to tea cups and they are trying to do the same thing!

I LOVE those noise-makers! I do have some vintage Victorian paper masks that I occasionally wear on Halloween.

what a cool thing to collect. I've never collected anything, but have decided to collect weird and different shot glasses.

I enjoy old noise makers too, but I don't collect them. I collect every other vintage thing. Why? Because I can feel the energy of all the folks who used the pieces before.

It looks like a fun collection. There was a lot of quality and pride of workmanship in older things too that is too often absent from modern-day goods.

I love vintage tablecloths. They are quirky and fun and the colors are different than what you would see today. My favorite has lobsters and nets around it...closely followed by the Florida souvenir tablecloth.

I do collect vintage things, mostly passed down from my grandparents. I love the look and history of old things.

I love vintage, too, Miss Ames. I guess because I am vintage - ha!

Noisemakers are so fun, aren't they?

I bet your Grandlittles have a noisy time with that basketful when they come to visit!

Thanks for linking.
