Vintage or Modern??

Are you a little bit Vintage? 
Are you a little bit Modern?
Are you a little bit of both?

I love vintage and yet I don't know that I could live without many of my modern conveniences! 
Computers are very high on my list of must haves in my life.  I've become so dependent on it like most of the world has.  Heck our phones are now computers!
Remember when the Princess phone was the new thing in phones!  I am lucky to have a pink princess phone, but what I use daily is...
My new LG G Stylo from T-Mobile
I love it!  Large screen and so many apps, oh and it also makes calls!  Give me modern on this one!

How about this vintage clock??  Pretty neat I must admit, but for my living room I chose
This large wall clock, modern with a 'old' look

What about vintage ornaments? 
or this beautiful hand blown glass modern ornament?  It's pretty and I love it, but...
on this one I am vintage all the way!

So I am a mix of vintage and modern in my life! 
Which are you?
Because I am so blessed I want to have a giveaway.  One of you will receive a box of goodies choosen just for you.  Leave a comment (and make sure I have your email address) and let me know if you are more vintage, modern or a mix of both! 
I'll pick a name on June 9th (my birthday) and the winner will get an email asking about some of their favorite things and I'll put together a box for you.
I did this once before and it was so much fun to fill a box especially for one of you. 

One more 
vintage cat?
or Modern?
Well actually he is vintage also...
Sorry Charlie!

Wishing you JOY,

So true Linda, when it comes to decor, I love vintage but it only takes a few hours of my internet being down when I realize how much I depend on modern, lol! Hugs, Cecilia

More vintage than modern in my decor but find myself mixing them more and more... IKEA and Fiestaware and McCoy Pottery and modern quilts and vintage cross stitch samplers... I love it all!

Beth said...

I am a little more modern at this time though I'm moving myself towards vintage. I have always loved vintage stuff but I share a home with others so I am not allowed to display my vintage items the way I would like. I also rely heavily on my modern conveniences, like my phone, computer, and dishwasher. I still hang my clothes and sheets on a line when I have the time. I use cast iron pans and pyrex for everyday cooking and storage. I love my vintage Christmas decorations and linens. Thanks for the chance to win a gift just for me.

Cute little cat yarn bowl Linda! I too love a mix but lean more towards vintage for little decorating touches, especially old ornaments! Thanks for the fun give-away, Happy B-Day month:@)

Jill said...

My "stuff" is a mixture, vintage and modern! Where would we be now without all of our fantastic electronics!

Cheri said...

I have a mix of antiques, modern and mid century here. This was a fun post you did and isn't it funny how decorating styles change but yet we like our more modern items...like cell phones with all the gadgets.lol

I really love vintage. But if it weren't for my computer, I would never have known about blogs. I use vintage in my decor and always try to repurpose, reuse and recycle old things. Old things were made to last and be used. Great ornament picture.

Melanie said...

I'm definitely a mix of both! I have a passion for vintage decor, but I also love some modern decor, depending on the room. I also love my modern conveniences...like you, couldn't live without my computer or smartphone! Thank you for including me in your giveaway...what a cool idea to make a custom box for whomever wins! :-)

I think it's comforting to have vintage items around, with modern everyday conveniences, too. I sit here and look around, and I see so many things that belonged to someone else before me. That's makes them vintage, right? Heck, my whole house itself certainly qualifies as vintage, since it's 160+ years old ... got 21st century doo dads like WiFi and central a/c to make modern life comfortable in this old pile of bricks.

Hi Linda. Ohhhhh Charlie. Such a cutie pie. Well, I'm a mix of vintage and modern. Like you, couldn't live without computers. I mean, I wouldn't have met you or any of the great folks in blogland!

How sweet of you to have a giveaway. Hope I win! hee hee Susan


I LOVE your vintage pink phone! I hope you have already started to celebrate your upcoming BIRTHDAY!!! I enjoy mostly vintage with a dash of "modern"! LOL!

Jan Baker said...

I have to go along with you. I have a lot of vintage quilts and furniture in my house but love the modern clean lines of furniture and quilts too.

Vicky Hunt said...

I'm most definitely a mix of both! I love so many vintage and modern things and even more mixed together. Give that sweet Charlie a pat for me...:) Have a lovely evening!

Hi Linda,
I'm with you all the way about vintage vs modern. I love so many things that are vintage like linens, dishes, gowns, vanity accessories, hats....all that girlie stuff from way back when. So, I usually have a small touch in every room.

Charlie is definitely a modern guy. Gizzy and Gabby said he is pretty hot lookin to them!


Jo-Anne's Ramblings said...

I am a little bit of both I like modern things with a vintage look

Ivy and Elephants said...

Oh, what fun! Okay, I am sooo vintage, I use the modern but yearn for the old.
My cat's old, too! lol

Sarah said...

Linda, cute post! Yes, I'm a mix of vintage and modern. What would we do without our modern electronics? ;-)
Your pink princess phone made me smile. Boy, do I remember those!

Chatty Crone said...

I LOVE that pink princess phone!!!! So you got a new cell phone - I thought that you just got one a couple years ago - lol!

Patricia Arnsberg said...

I really like a mix...however, I have more vintage. I am of the school of decorating....if I really love it, it will fit in with the rest of my things!

Art and Sand said...

Oh, how much I wanted a Princess phone when I was young.

You know I love vintage pretties! But I won't enter this time...I won a box filled with treasures last year! Someone will be SO lucky to get a package from you! Sweet hugs, Diane
