I sit back and watch people, and all these new TV shows, and You Tube videos that promote the very things my grandparents did, my parents did, and I still do!
I know many of you embrace the older ways as well. I guess we are just trendsetters and pioneers!!!!
I remember back, that Mom used every spare piece of material she had to make clothes or quilts. She altered clothes all the time. So many of us do this same thing today. Many of you love quilting, and I know there are several who like to re-invent clothes into newer styles, or just make new craft projects from them.
What I find hysterical, is the young gals and their fashions. They all think they "invented" the look. Can we all say "been there - done that"? LOL
My nieces are wearing what I wore in high school, and can't believe their old Aunt could have ever been so cool!!!
Any how, things are coming back into style, trend, or maybe people are beginning to see the reality in front of them!
It's pretty isn't it. I know many of us are striving to have this type of pantry. It used to be the norm.
My parents were sure ahead of their time - NOT! That was how we got fed. Had it not been for that lifestyle, many of us wouldn't be here today.
What a notion!
Well younger generation think they have found this wonderful new thing called milk delivery. There are a few companies that are doing this again. I am sorry - but it will never be the same!
I like 'old' things - except at my house they are just normal items. I use old jars for storage, have many hand powered appliances and gadgets that have been in constant use for the past 60-70 years by someone. I love aprons (they are coming back too). I enjoy sewing (coming back). I hang my laundry outside. I cook from scratch. I garden and preserve my food.............................
You see where I am going with this - ALL THINGS OLD ARE NEW AGAIN!
Isn't it amazing - that our ancestors actually had it right to start with?!!
I do love my vintage tablecloths. They may have a stain or two, but in my eyes that truly means they are vintage! Vintage is the NEW thing now. Folks are after vintage clothes, furniture, appliances, accessories, you name it!
I guess I fit in - I have 'original' vintage!!!! I guess you could call me vintage as well.
Well gang, I guess I have digressed enough for one day.
You all know that this is all true - as most of you are just like me. We love the 'old' ways. It makes life seem a bit more simple and down to earth.
It is up to us to keep these things going, if at all possible, for the younger generations. Once all of us "preppers" or "old-fashioned" folks leave this earth - so much will die out.
These things have lived on through so many generations - I hope they continue to in the future.
WHAT old ways or old things DO YOU still keep alive? Let's trade some stories or ideas!
I do indeed long for a simpler time.
