A Different Time & Place - An Etsy Shopping List


So many vintage items to lust after - so little time to make the money to purchase them all.

And, looking at my taste, it seems that I really belong to the 1940s & 50s. Man, my grandma must have had one helluva time being so chicly dressed!

  1. I think I was meant to live in the 1940s as well...when things were prettier and everything had style. Bring the 1940s back! (Minus the racism and sexism!)
