I love vintage finds. For me they represent history. Admittedly just a fragment of it and on a day to day level. But I like to muse over a particular item, trying to guess where it was used, when, by whom – and sometimes – for what.
My grandfather was a cartographer and probably that´s why I always liked the smell of paper and ink and the love of color. I still have some of his stuff he used to use for his work. Things similar to these:
Mapping Pen Nibs and Nib Holders
I love the items and the story!
Paper and ink are sooooo 20th century 🙂
Love this, can’t remember when I received a real letter, miss them!
love those kind of memories!!! Yesterday I was sitting somewhere waiting on my daughter. I was reading a book and the lady next to me was reading on her iPad….made me smile…yes I am old school.
