Well, that inspiration turned into this, my Canadiana bedroom!

Took an old Ikea dresser and attached birch branches as thrifty handles.

Take a right turn and you will find the world!

Quilt made by my Nan, many years ago.

(Incorporates all the colours of the room together.)

Classroom map that, once upon a time, was used at my old high school.

Armoire love affair:

Purchased at the Antique Market in Waterford.

(Originally made in Montreal).

Painted, “key” knobs from Stratford, & filled to the brim with all my favourite clothes.

Vintage butter box.

Old barn farm door as headboard.

Side tables found on the road, repainted red.

Good as new!

Wake up in the morning:

A-OK kinda day!

This above all; to thine own self be true.

You maybe can’t tell, but my shirt says,

“Love that beaver.’

No joke.

And now, time to curl up with a good book.

Vintage is the new modern.

Don’t you think?

Remember Me?

Hello Internet Log Glog Blog Followers & Explorers!

Remember me?

No? Well… I cant say that I’m not surprised. My life has taken a twist and left me all over the proverbial map (this would be wonderful it if was instead a realistic global endeavour, but alas, it is not).

Moving forward is essential…

Opportunity follows misfortune…

And all that jazzzzz!

Instead of my previous posting style I am thinking, for now, of taking it down a notch, and leaving much more simple posts for your viewing pleasure. To do this, I am going to use my new bff Instagram, and, if you don’t know what that is than you either don’t have an iPhone or knowledge of the app world or photography. If so that’s good for me because you might think I’m actually a super fly photographer. Well, I’m definitely not the best, but it’ll have to do.

One of the main reasons I love Instagram is because it vintage-a-fies your pics.  And so, now Hannah’s in Vintage can live up a bit more to the name.

For catching up sake, I’ll leave you with a few pics.

PS. If you follow me on Instagram, than this is redundant.

PPS. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, well, you probably should.

Enjoyyyy.

Here It Goes Again

Hello dear readers, if you are out there.

After completeing my three month trip of Europe, and blog to boot, I am left wishing I could have continued on doing both; unfortunately, my funds no longer permit the traveling (until further notice).  Fortunately, there is nothing stopping me from creating a “proper” blog.  I say proper because I feel my last one was sloppy at times, and not nearly as fine tuned as I would have liked.  This being attributed to writing most of my posts on my tiny i-Phone screen.

So, here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.

This time, I hope to bring you much more flaire.  Why vintage?  Personally, I have always been attracted to anything antqiue, and everything vintage, from the early medieval period right up to the swingin’ 60’s. I swear I was born in the wrong decade.

OMG, I almost forgot to mention vintage wine!

Hannah’s in Vintage is dedicated to creating a space where others meandering online can come for a vintage twist of inspiration dealing with a few of my favourite things: fashion, literature and other writing, interior design, and of course, food, glorious food!

As always, your comments are greatly appreciated.

Heart, Hannah.
