It was the week for rusty, crusty, dusty stuff.
A few cobwebs, too!
Last Monday our niece Leia came to spend the day.
I was in the fog of Extra-Strength Tylenol.
No, I did not drive.
Somewhere along the way I left behind a bag with vintage Ideal magazines and other items. I have no recollection, but I am sure they were fabulous.
I was so excited to find this brown toile tablecloth because of the number of different animals in the pattern.
Horses, goats, cows, dogs, peacocks, deer - just to name a few.
Love the sculptural quality of this old piece of organ.
I will list this on Etsy as soon as I get it clean.
Found another brown suitcase - this one extra large.
Could not resist this $1 jeans jacket covered with hundreds of vintage buttons - front and back.
It weighs about seven pounds.
And STINKS to high heaven.
I will have to soak it for days and dry it out in the sun.
The old coffin carrier is filled with a stack of frosted windows.
Another cleaning project. <sigh>
That's not distressing you see - it is mold!
A heart-shaped basket holding a darling paper mache piggy bank
A silver picture holder.
Another colander - I thought it was graniteware, but it is just dirt.
An unusual mold.
Sell or keep?
A stack of numbered drawers.
Vintage round wall basket in delicious white and blue paint.
A rusty grater and eggbeater.
A floral frog covered in (?).
Six heart molds.
I am sure the tea tin is pretty under the crud.
Love its shape and the lift top lid.
Not too often can you find a smoking baby.
See the tiny hole in his mouth?
He may be for string.
A roll of tiny jute fits in the back.
If you find a purple Publix bag packed with some treasures, let me know.
I am missing whatever is in it.
UPDATE: MY PURPLE BAG WAS SAVED AND HIDDEN UNDER THE COUNTER AT THE THRIFT STORE!
