I think I inherited a lot of my love for antiques and vintage from my mother. She used to collect so many interesting items and placed them all over the house. They always triggered my imagination about other times and lives.
As a child there was a time in the late70s and early 80s when she served our food in the wonderful Villeroy & Boch Acapulco tableware. I remember looking at the birds and flowers, and falling into daydreams about them.
