vintage items in our house

It is a mix of new and vintage, design and even IKEA.
I thought it would be fun to show our vintage things, some inherited, some bought in second hand shops.
Old pieces in the living room: my grand-grandma's 30's sewing machine and their wedding picture from 1921, my grandma's old bakelite phone, the found sewing box with the sliding lid, the 2nd hand 50's table, another sewing cabinet which my bf inherited, a huge copper washing bin and an old handmade child's sledge:
