I come from a long and glorious line of collectors. My Tante Maria saved and treasured everything—and was amazingly tidy about it (unlike the explosion of goodies that are strewn about my house). She recently passed away and we've been going through her household sorting through her belongings. While a bittersweet process, we have been finding some mighty fun treasures along the way: high heeled "sneaker" wedges from the 70s (in mint condition I might add...TREASURE!), a well worn-but-lovely collection of vintage aprons from the 50s/60s, adorable straw sun hats, a vintage Dior dress, scarves, a toilettetry bag with "orla kiely" esque pattern. Yesterday my mom said to me, "I thought you might like this." My aunts old barware...complete with little drink guides she had pulled out of magazines in 1969-1972. There were even little cute hand written scraps of paper with drink recipes on them. So cool. I thought you guys might like to see them. While the drinks all sound delish, its the photos and typography that I'm lovin'.
I love her dress and shoes...hey wait a sec, isn't this the same Manhattan playa from the other photo??
Believe it or not, we actually have that orange fireplace. But when the day is done, I have NOT been sipping a Stinger. I think I need to fix that pronto.
I love the labels on these bottles....amazing!
