Dear Diary


First and foremost, thank you so much for all of your thoughtful comments with my style predicament. I was happily surprised to receive so much helpful advice and will definitely take all of it into consideration on my future shopping trips.


Last night after work I didn't really feel like being in my house so I went up to the attic in my uncles house. I first discovered the attic when I was about 11 and I'm so happy my uncle never bothers to clean anything out. It has rows of old records, my aunt's old dance outfits, childhood scrapbooks and my favorite find my grandmother's old diaries especially this navy blue one. I never met my grandmother but I'm told she was an amazing woman. Reading her diaries took me back to the 1950s and into the life of my grandmother. This little adventure inspired me to go to staples this morning and buy this brown suede notebook. I haven't written in a diary since the "secret voice password diaries" came out and I just had to have it so nobody would ever be able to discover my deepest secrets as a third grader because you needed the voice password to get it. I'm going to fill it with a novel style autobiography of the last 3 years. We'll see if I finish it but I think it would be so cool for my grandkids (that was weird writing that) to get a feel of what my life has been like.
As you might have guessed by now, I'm really into to almost anything vintage or old fashioned so I love to hear about cool finds in houses, theaters etc. Do you have any?

i wish i could find great old things like that. the best thing i found was some of old pictures of my grandma from the 70's. =) i loved how her hair was made up in every picture and how she was dressed so flawlessly even when she was at a party in her own home. =)

Most my vintage finds have come from shops, but I still love the sense of history even when I don't know the exact stories.
