Antique by Dawn Duffield
For me, there is something romantic about items that existed long before I came along.
Things, like people, that have managed to survive decades, even centuries, often show their history in marks of endurance and occasional abuse.
Individuals who have suffered through war, the loss of a loved one, loneliness and despair can be the most loyal, lifelong friends.
When I restore vintage and antique items, I know that one day long after I am gone, a story will be told, a story about love and endurance, and how they don’t make things the way they once did.
