Weekend finds: Nostalgia is the longing for a time that never was….

…but we can dream, can’t we. The soft shades of vintage pieces, colors  never quite bold enough to be mistaken for new, the few pieces that I’ve gathered over the weekend all suggest a trip into pastoral countryside or an afternoon on a well worn leather sofa buried under a mountain of needlepoint pillows.  So go grab a cup of tea and enjoy the moment. Above the ‘Festival of Britain’ pillow, inspired by a vintage scarf by Re.

Maybe no longer ideal for travel in today’s world but they still evoke that feeling of a weekend getaway, these Vintage cases by Original Little Bird make a statement, add that soft vintage coloring and might even provide storage for more mundane objects.

Picnic in the country anyone? And if that’s not an option in the middle of your workweek, maybe a carpet picnic one night this week, complete with vintage inspired linen and a hamper full of good things. Napkins also by Original Little Bird.

And finally pillows, pillows and more pillows. The motifs vintage, the colors perfect for right now, so go ahead, pile them on high. Needlepoint pillows and Silk Memento pillows by Re.

    I am always interested in vintage pieces which give a pleasant feeling, whenever you see them. A kind of peace of mind. Great.
