friday fictioneers: cinderella’s glass slipper

Copyright - Dawn M. Miller

As I was growing up, our small, $26 a month rental was jam-packed with mis-matched, second-hand furnishings.

On Saturdays, I was Cinderella.

Dusting, polishing, and rearranging others’ cast offs very likely contributed to my love of vintage items.

However it wasn’t until my husband and I moved to New York’s Long Island in the 70s, that I realized my passion for antiques. It was probably triggered by our first major auction purchase, a massive, oak roll top desk.

Now a dinosaur, the roll top reminds us of the loving craftsmanship Β rarely seen nowadays.

Builds character. Saves the earth.

Poverty’s silver lining…old stuff.Β

    • Thanks, Linda! A number of others have expressed a love of the old. It’s really heartwarming to know that others cherish what some folks might cast away. I like to think the good spirits of all these vintage items are still out and about among us spreading loving vibes for all of us to absorb…if we want. hugs for the lovely comment.


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
