Here's my mindset while vintage/antique/junk/thrift shopping: buy it if it is (a) inexpensive in relation to value, (b) functional within my space, and (c) if not currently functional, DIY-able so that it may function within my space. I believe that a "function" can range from an object that serves a practical purpose to an object whose purpose is to look adorable. So yes, I will buy small, unique "tchotchkes" without abandon to use sparingly as home decor. While I am no means a minimalist, we can all agree that a cluttered shelf of animal figurines can go from cute to crazy pretty quickly.
So as far as DIY projects, I am planning on customizing most of the items that I purchased (excluding the clock and collar clip), so I will document those in a future blog post. It tends to be more interesting to see how these types of items can be incorporated into one's own personal homestyle rather than just seeing the goods themselves.
And now to address the obvious: this is my first and hopefully not my last blog post! There are various topics I'd love to cover apart from vintage and DIY, including contemporary art, general inspiration, books, films, and the occasional fashion or beauty post. I would love to get any feedback or suggestions, and feel free to add me on Bloglovin' to join me on this journey!
