Create A Casual Vintage Holiday Table Centerpiece Using An Old Wooden Drawer

Create A Casual Vintage Holiday Table Centerpiece Using An Old Wooden Drawer | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

As I’ve said before, I like useful collectibles — and, because I don’t like anything to go to waste, I like to find new ways to make use of old things. Just because something is “old and just laying around,” doesn’t mean it can’t be salvaged or re-purposed. Like the vintage refrigerator crisper drawers, I knew these old wooden desk drawers I’d found could do something new and fabulous… Worn, paint-chippy wood is so charming!


Immediately, I thought of the holidays and the need for low centerpieces which wouldn’t get in the way of seeing family and friends.

Program teaches history via beloved quilter, 'Pioneer Girl' Grace Snyder

Program teaches history via beloved quilter, 'Pioneer Girl' Grace Snyder | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Grace Snyder's lively eyes gaze out of her 1903 wedding photograph. There's an astonishing hat atop her head and a tiny, cat-got-the-cream smile on her lips. She perches just behind her cowboy husband, her clasped hands resting near his left shoulder.


            Her story, in many respects, mirrors Nebraska's history in the late 19thcentury and much of the 20th century.


            Born in 1882, reared in a sod house on a Custer County homestead and married to a Sandhills cowboy and rancher, she recounted her pioneer life in the 1963 book "No Time on My Hands," as told to her daughter, author Nellie Snyder Yost.


            Along the way, she became nationally known for her quilting expertise. Two of her quilts were designated as among the 100 best 20th-century quilts by Quilters Newsletter Magazine in 1999. She was named to the National Quilters Hall of Fame in 1980, two years before her death at 100.


            Now Grace Snyder is the focal point of an innovative new history curriculum developed jointly by NET Learning Services, the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Nebraska State Historical Society.


            Called "Tiny Stitches, Big Life," the online multimedia project uses Snyder's quilts and her life experiences to bring pioneer history to life for Nebraska elementary school students. It is the first module of a larger project, "Stories of Nebraska Quilters," with plans to develop additional material about other Nebraskans who are remembered through their quilts.

Trainee Tuesday: Researching to help us Remember | The National Archives blog | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

[T]he project I am currently working on, identifying and researching the First World War collections that we hold, is the one that has most inspired me and captured my interest. From a collection of poems and illustrations made by soldiers whilst they were being treated in Bradford War Hospital, to official minutes from the meetings of Otley’s Belgian Refugee Committee, to personal letters and diaries giving an insight into what life was like during 1914-1918 both at home and at the front; the collections are vast and draw on personal experiences as well as official documentation issued at the time.

The secrets to investing in art

The secrets to investing in art | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

Investing in art is a long-term project, so collectors should only buy what they love.


...Every collector also likes to have their art appreciate in value. But an artwork’s true value, beyond its importance in the larger art community and how rarely it appears on the market, is how desirable it is – the work’s aesthetic dividend.

Wolff: Is art a criminal enterprise?

Wolff: Is art a criminal enterprise? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

hardly anybody was willing or able to explain the actual process of creating astronomical value where otherwise none might exist, and how, over many years, prices with no underlying logic have not only been sustained but have inevitably headed ever higher.


Those questions were absent in the auction commentary despite a steady litany of recent scandals in the art world. This included last week's guilty plea by art family scion Helly Nahmad, accused of racketeering, money laundering, extortion and gambling in concert with a coterie of Russian gangsters. His plea helps his secretive family, one of the most powerful in the art market, avoid further scrutiny.


Indeed, it is nearly commonplace among art professionals that art, perhaps second only to drug trafficking, is among the world's most lucrative dubious business. It is hard to overlook the connections between these two cash-rich enterprises.
