Weekly Obsession: Vintage Football

Raise your hand if you’re totally pumped about the NFL draft this coming weekend! Hello? Okay, I totally freaked you out.

One of my favorite ways to do this: antique photos.


They create a nice way to liven up a living space without having to paint it team colors.


And if you want to bring an early love of the sport to your little one, drop the team themed teddy bears and dig these:
