I collect antiques. I love things old and vintage, especially since they often express themselves in a wabi sabi way…perfection in imperfection.
I love the dents and nicks, marks and wear that vintage items possess.
I imagine what each piece might have experienced, endured and triumphed through.
I never lose pleasure in taking a closer look at a piece, feeling its texture and smiling at its imagined story.
The other day, when I was being quite mindless, I smacked one of my flow blue dishes to the floor accidentally, and CRASH!!!…it broke into bits.
