There is something sad about getting older.  We all do it.  Although inside we are still the same.  No one ever wants to grow old I don't think - remembering the things we used to be able to do.  That's why I love these pictures I found by Tom Hussey.  They tell a story, all the while helping us realise that our life is short , so make the most of it and remember the important things.

I think that's why I love vintage so much too.  It helps to remember the good old days and to remind us that our digital, app-loving, throw away generation is a new concept.  Back in the day things were made to last, to tell a story, to give to your grandkids; so they could give it to their grandkids.  I can't imagine leaving my iPod in a will to any of my kids. I hope they'd cherish the memories and person I was when we were their age.  Tell them the stories that these pictures tell.

I'm really going for rather serious posts this week aren't I?  Hmmm.  Well for something a little lighter - get to know the both of us a little more on Walk of Fashion blog, where the lovely Isabel has featured us for Girls of the Blogosphere!  Yayballs!  And also there is only a week to go before we draw our giveaway - so make sure you enter below!
