I love vintage. Vintage clothing, books, knick-knacks, houses, everything! I find it all so fascinating. It holds so many memories of a time gone by. When life seemed slower. They made things beautiful and durable. Unlike today. Don't get me wrong, lots of things today are still pretty, but back then they seemed to hold more of an elegance. A time gone by. I have learned a lot since I have been getting into vintage fashion. I have a 1920s dress hanging on my closet door. It isn't in best condition, but it is lovely none the less.
I wonder who wore it. I bet it was a younger girl. Did she wear it while she ran through the grass? Did she twirl in it as she danced? Did she wear it with gloves and a hat to a tea party? When she first got it, did she put it on right away being filled with excitement and twirling around? It has a lovely blue flower print with white detail. Simple, yet sweet. To me, each vintage piece is a piece of history. It has stood the test of time and each has its own story. Some are even "old ladies", being in their 70s, 80's, and 90's.
You know what, though? As much as I consider myself a vintage girl, and I love things that are vintage, I wouldn't trade living in this time for anything. God put me right where I am supposed to be and I love it! I wouldn't trade being in my family(the best family EVER! I'm sure you all feel that way about your families, too:)) for anything. I'm sure back then was an exciting time, but we are still living in an exciting time. Everyday we get closer to being with Jesus.
Although, I would like for Him to wait a little longer. I still dream of getting married and having some children and I think and pray I will. For none no the day nor the time of His return. Some other things I love about living in this century is having, internet(um, YES!), not having a certain "style" you have to wear, you can wear whatever you want! And so many other things I can't even think of, or name them all.
Thank you, Lord. For knowing me so well and placing me right where I belong. Thank you, that I am not out of place or time, but in Your hands. I am in the greatest family ever, and in the greatest time ever. Lord, You are so faithful. Holy is your name. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
