“Something old” is the first line of a traditional rhyme which details what a bride should wear at her wedding for good luck:
and a silver sixpence in her shoe.
It is often recited as the four “somethings”, not including the sixpence. The rhyme appears to originate in England, an 1898 compilation of English folklore reciting that: In this country an old couplet directs that the bride shall wear:— “Something old, something new, Something borrowed, something blue. wikipedia.org
*Making a card with some of my photographs, I love to photo one-of-a-kind items! *Rare pocket watch 1890 Patek Phillipe with enameling Peacock, I wonder who the rich guy was that carried that around? 🙂 thanks for reading my blog!
I love old things! I’ve been collecting Vintage and antiques since I was practically a kid! I love researching the Edwardian era. … I am so… sentimental and concerned with things of the past…my family and friends cease to talk to me at times. I love period movies: Horseman on the Roof, Wuthering Heights, The Woodlanders, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, Bleak house, and John Adams. My favorite actress is Juliette Binoche, in the movie Chocolat. I know it’s just a movie but, I feel if people would act that kind the world would be a better place to live.
I am on a constant mission to discover treasures; I love one-of-a-kind items, no one else has. Because I buy too much, occasionally I sell my items; Vintage prom, purses, antiques and incredible Edwardian jewelry. Originally I started this blog for myself, my little space to keep all my research notes, price realized and my photo creations. It seems there is more to this blog now, hopefully you can feel my love for the past.
Have a lovely day! Love
