collector of aged stuff

over the years, i have grown to become a collector of *aged* stuff





be it a vintage watch












or vintage buttons

i am drawn to these things
i find the worn-out look, yellowish accent attractive
to me, these *aged* items are much finer in design and craftmanship than items made in recent years....
i guess that has to do with the world nowadays....
everything is about cost, efficiency and profit reaping
...  which means mass production

Buttons, cotton lace & different kind of ribbons become my lovely materials~~
Part of my leisure time, enjoy of finding those materials~~
Little by little and make use of them.
Hope to share with U more!
