Each week the Sunday Spotlight will shine on someone who has captured my imagination and has real talent that I feel should be celebrated. This week the lovely folks at Collectini started following me on Twitter. (me @rosieandtheboys them @collectini.) That's how I came to discover them and the beautiful things that they have found.
For those of you who have been reading the blog for a while, you'll probably have guessed that I have a weakness for vintage. To me there's vintage hmm and there's vintage wow. There is a lot of skill in curating an interesting and beautiful collection. Being able to imagine how something could be given new life, displayed or used in a home is a talent. Successful curators and collectors can help others see the beauty and value in items that for whatever reason are in search of a new home.
Collectini seem to have that talent. It was evident to me from looking at their blog: http://collectini.blogspot.com/ and then backed up massively by their lovely Etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/collectini?ref=pr_shop_more.
So here are a few of the items available for sale right now in their Etsy shop which show off their skill.
Such a pretty jewellery box which would suit a little girl or an adult. Great colours, interesting picture and obvious functionality. Love it.
Would look great hanging against a retro patterned wallpaper or a brilliant white background. A great conversation piece and just delightful to look at.
