I have come to realise and accept that I am an all vintage collector. Sometimes I fear that I am just a few items away from becoming a hoarder..
It could be because I grew up in an old home, surrounded by old furniture or just because I honestly believe that items were made of better quality and craftsmanship. 
This is the only reason I can find to justify my excitement at coming across a vintage silk blouse in a shop or feeling right at home in a place that has old artifacts as decor, for example this little boutique hotel in the heart of Mexico City, a true hidden gem, where I've been spending some days. You can see some of these artifacts I refer to in my Instagram account. Are there any items that make you feel at home when you are away from home?

Nothing wrong with collecting, if that's your thing, but hoarding is not something I want to do.

I love that turquoise colour on you - looks amazing!

I like the brooch with your blouse! It's a lovely shade on you too.

I come from a family of collectors - everyone has something they like to collect! For me, it's handbags, obviously, haha! I think everyone has that one thing that they can't resist picking up when they see it! :)

Hope you are having a great week :) I'm enjoying our cooler autumn weather, it's a lovely change from the heat we've had this year!
