How old does something have to be before it's considered vintage? Searching for this answer will result in a varying degree of answers. In my mind, I consider vintage to be anything of my grandparents era. I have so many fond memories of playing with vintage toys at their house or sitting at my grandfather's old desk. Let's take a look at some fun toys, desks, and design assets.

The opening ceremony to the 2014 Winter Olympics begins this week in Sochi, Russia. Spectators from all of the world will be watching as their favorite athletes are put to the ultimate test.
No matter where you are from, the 5 Olympic rings are universally known as the symbol of the the greatest sporting events on earth. But, have you ever wondered what it means? The colorful rings actually stand for each of the 5 continents involved in the games; America, Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe. The colors were chosen to represent all of the colors that you can find on the flags of each of the participating countries.
Each country that sponsors the Olympics also tends to stay within the same color pattern when creating the logo for that year's event. Let's take a look at some of the logos from the past.Sochi 2014
One of the biggest wedding trends of the year is... gold! We saw the sparkling hue on the bridal fashion runways, across stationery suites and glamming up wedding cakes -- it's safe to say it's everywhere.
Nothing adds quite as much pizazz to a wedding-day outfit as that midas touch. Choose a pair of gilded shoes you love and you'll be wearing them long after you say "I do." See a few of our favorites below!
Vera Lim, aka 7th Avenue Designs has some absolutely gorgeous digital paper that I am obsessed with. In the hunt for backgrounds for my current scrapbooking project, I have this “fresh, modern, and vintage” look all in one place. It is my pleasure to introduce this amazing designer and her collection of fabulous digital paper.
I ran across an article the other day and I was amazed by the completely stunning photos of a beach illuminated by the glowing phytoplankton. I was mesmerized by its elegance and moreover the fact that Mother Nature never ceases to create awe-inspiring beauty in this world.
I would love to be able to see such a site one day in person. For now though, just seeing these images made me feel really lucky to live in San Francisco. While we don't have bioluminescent phytoplankton, I am still able to picnic on the beach even in the "winter" months. For this native mid-westerner, that is amazing in and of itself. I felt the urge to find some other amazing beach photos, which are so easy to get lost in.
Feeling a little beachy yourself? Let's take a look at some inspirational web design elements that can be added to your next project.
Here is a set of background images that will be sure to serve great as backgrounds or graphic content for your landing page, your blog, your application or your website!
These images were 'found' on a beautiful rocky coastline in the far North West of Tasmania.
