The wonder and beauty of age..



If you've been following my blog for a while you know that I love old things with a passion! Remind me to show you a Persian rug that I bought recently, 70 years old with hardly any pile but with the original design just visible, j'adore, even though I get mocked horribly :) The old Baker and Rouse cameras look amazing locked behind glass here. The lens, French I think, are in remarkable condition and although I think they are too gorgeous, this old beauty is never, no way going to fit into my handbag :)  


Oh alright, I'll show you my old rug but no rude comments oui, I get enough of them from family and friends :) There must be some who can see and appreciate the beauty of having something that has a bit of history, I mean, who's feet have walked here before mine :) Bon weekend, take care and stay safe...

  1. The old camera would do nicely just as a show piece! Strange how far we've come with the technology.

  2. Now that is something to treasure, both the camera (quite nice) and the amazing old rug! Classy, and made to last, if and when cared for. Priceless to you.

  4. What a beautiful old camera! It would be fun to try it out. Love your old rug, the history of it something to think about. I think that when I'm looking at very old things in museums. How many hands did that object travel through before it ended up inside the museum's glass case.

  7. The camera is wonderful! Fantastic fotos must have been taken on that.
    The carpet is historical! Just imagine the number of feet that have crossed that rug.

  8. The older I get the more I like old stuff. That's probably because I'm familiar with it and grew up with it. Although the Persian rug ... well, I really ought to make a funny comment about it but I guess I won't...I'll just say it would be good for our cats...they need a "purrsion" rug." 😇

  9. I appreciate the old cameras, they were made to last and heavy but they helped get us to where we are today. Your rug is priceless to you and that is all that matters. My first thought was the rug needs a poem. I don't know why but it just does. Have a great weekend Grace. :)

  11. At least the rug sits nicely flat and it doesn't slap you in the face.

  12. Beautiful camera and lenses Grace. Remind me of my project camera that I've had for way too many years and in the same condition as when I bought it.

  13. Oh, Grace, I just imagine a handbag where that cam fits in :-)
    Interesting thought about who´d walked over that rug before you.
    We have but one, it´s a hopscotch-rug and for sure I know whose feet and paws went over there.
    I guess!
