Welcome to my corner of the web! I'm Jem, and you could say I'm an enthusiastic hoarder of all things beautiful and curious, which sounds like a confession of sorts and I suppose it is for believe me I have sinned. As the name of my blog suggests the objects that really take my fancy are those that have been loved - or loathed - before. That isn't to say I shun the high street, only that I love nothing more than seeking out bits and pieces with a history entirely their own. For this I place the credit squarely upon the shoulders of the maternal side of my family - from wandering around antique centres and car boot sales with my Grandparents to watching endless series of Antiques Roadshow with my Mum of a Sunday afternoon - they each had their influence.
So this, like many others in the vast ocean of blogs, will be a place to ramble a little about one of my passions over a cup of tea and perhaps meet some like-minded readers and bloggers along the way!
