And I think that the beginning of my love for Vintage started here: My dad started collecting stuff from World War 2 when he was 12 and he never stopped. So in those 28 years he has already seen a lot but still not everything, that's for sure! He met my mom, they got married and he still didn't stopped collecting, contrary: he bought a jeep. And a picture of that jeep was on my birth card, haha. Not a cute teddy bear or baby, no that jeep! I'm kind of born in the Vintage atmosphere...
That's the start of my chapter is in a Vintage family and they couldn't let me home from those WW2-events so they installed a child safety seat in the back of that jeep, I think it was a really funny view!
When my brother was born, my parents did chose a birth card with teddy bear but that doesn't mean that my brother isn't interested in WW2, oh no! In his room he has a small mannequin that wears his uniform, what do want more?!
I think that the first year that I went for a whole WW2-event was 2007 and I can barely believe that's it's already 7 years ago because I still remember some great or funny moments of it. I didn't had any kind of Vintage clothing back than but luckly I met Nikita and she gave my first pair of Vintage shoes, my first Vintage dress, she did my hair etc... And her 2 boys are also both born in everything that has a connection with WW2. The oldest, Lucas, was 3months old when he went to War&Peace Show.
Conclusion: My parents did support in my all my Vintage dreams and together we live in a house with a Vintage-styled interior and a lot of WW2 stuff and that's our way of living.
Years go by and still every day my love for Vintage grows, just my collection!
