affair to remember


“Don’t you think that life should be gay and bright and bubbly, like champagne?”

“I like pink champagne.”

“That’s the kind I mean.”

– An Affair to Remember

I think we can all agree that An Affair to Remember starring Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr is one of the pinnacles of classic cinema.  From the first time seeing this as a girl I’ve thought that pink champagne was the classiest and most romantic drink.  Also who doesn’t want the kind of life Cary Grant describes above.

From 1660 to 1960, we love it all and will talk about it all. For the most part though we are likely to focus our posts on the first half or so of the 20th century.   

Now we know vintage, retro and antique are not synonyms but for the purposes of this blog we aren’t going to stress about that. This blog is a celebration of the past and a shared interest in preserving some of it for our modern life.  We are looking for like-minded individuals to join in the discussion.

Our goal is to provide our readers with tips and suggestions for bringing a vintage touch to all areas of their lives so please if you have any questions or topics you’d like us to tackle we welcome them. Leave us a comment or send us an email.
