I'm Not the Only One Who Loves Old Things
One of the blogs I like to visit on the subject of old things is "Vintage Rescue Squad". This gal is always scoring great old items when she is out and about. She also has a booth where she sells these items. Today she has a post about explaining her love and appreciation of old items to a five year old. I loved the way she expressed her feelings and wanted to share with my readers. Please check out How Come Everything You Have Is Old?
