I must say I am sometimes guilty of that.At first I felt a bit guilty if I caught myself thinking that is a cute tin or what a lovely old embroidery, or cute teapot. Now I recognise it for what it is. I am not thrigting the stuff I see I capture the image of something tha tis used and loved properly to guide me while thrifting.
Because youknow what. I am not one of those people who can rummage for gems in ugly unloved circumstances. I need remeberance, I need context. ANd that what old people's home give me. If I see things belonging together and then come across a same object that is lost, I can help. Because I know how it will belong..
