Happy New Year!  What a terrific holiday season we had here at the Pursuing Vintage household!  It always amazes me how quickly it all happens.  I feel like one moment I’m trying to get the tree up, figure out the Christmas meal, shopping, decorating, and singing along to Jingle Bells… and then next minute I’m done and putting it all away.  So, here we are, a fresh start in 2015 – a whole year ahead of us before the holiday madness happens again!

Before diving into 2015, I wanted to reflect on my favorite finds of 2014.  It really was a terrific year in terms of pursuing vintage and Pursuing Vintage!  I found a lot of beautiful and unique pieces, and I also continued to grow Pursuing Vintage – gain a few more readers (thank you!) and grow the shop.  Here are a few of my Favorite Finds of 2014!

Fave Finds 2014 : Pursuing Vintage



















This is just a handful of the beautiful pieces I found and made available in The Shop.  I wish I had room for all of it in my own home!

Speaking of my own home – during the last year I also added a few vintage pieces to my own decor that I am in love with.  My two favorites are visible in this photo:

Pursuing Vintage Holiday Home Tour : Dining Room

The Lucite chandelier and the yellow upholstered Chinese Chippendale dining chairs just make me smile.  I think they’re wonderful additions to my home – it’s like they were “meant to be”!  (Now if I can just find a table…)

I’m looking forward to 2015 and all of the awesome vintage that is out there waiting to be found.  Tune in later this week for my 2015 Wish List!



It is here.  2014.  I’m not sure where 2013 has gone.


When I look back at 2013, I am amazed at how far Pursuing Vintage has come.  A year ago, it was just a blurry vision.  I didn’t know how to do it, what it would look like, or what to call it.  In a way, it was “in utero” for a long time – developing and growing.  With my family’s encouragement and my husband’s support, Pursuing Vintage was “born” in July.  Much like a first time mother, I was afraid I would drop it on its head I’ve been learning along the way.  And, I have a lot more to learn to keep it growing and evolving!

Thank you so much for reading and participating.  I love reading the comments and seeing Facebook “likes” – it is a verification that I’m not just doing this for myself – that hopefully I’m reaching others who have similar interests, that I’m striking a chord.

My 2014 goal for Pursuing Vintage is to continue to technically develop the site, and to continue to provide interesting content and ideas that keep you coming back for more!  I’m excited to see what 2014 will mean for Pursuing Vintage – and I hope you’ll join me!

Happy New Year!
