    I Love Old Things!

    I feel like i'm the only one my age who likes old things! I've always had this weird fascination with antiques. I used to live in this house built around 1898, and i loved it. I also love the smell of old things, they all have this certain smell. It's the weirdest thing.

    90's Style

    I miss the 90's clothing style & Nike sneakers with the straps that I wish I could've had. Now, they're vintage, retro, & hard to find. Dang it! I was a kid, & my foster mom was evil. & I SO love 90's R&B! I STILL listen to it.

    Things With a History Intrigue Me

    I love old things. I wonder who touched this ancient desk...or battered piano. Even old postcards intrigue me. I was recently given an 1882 American silver dollar. My greatuncle gave it to my grandmother at the birth of her firstborn...my mother. I never met my grandmother...
