I am always looking for mid-century kitchen, here we have one Morn Glo and one Laburnum dinner plate, a pair of Grindley Salt and Peppers and two Kimberly mugs.
The copper and brass ewer is an original. I am not sure about the doorstop, it looks exactly like the original but it seems too perfect so I am guessing it is a repro. It should have wear, rust and not such a clean white interior.
The Best Brews sign is florescent. Bright and happy.
Such great detail in this little brass engine, part of a bookend.
Yes, a bee smoker.
Short story. DH was at a garage sale a few weeks ago and saw a wooden tool box. Too heavy to move alone. He had help from 2 young men loading the black tool box into his trunk.
Full of very rusty iron tools. I finally this week offloaded the contents into 4 containers and dragged them to the porch. DGS helped the first sort.
Files in one box, anything that would drill a hole in another, flat stuff and then other stuff. We attacked the brass bits first and pulled out one green handled file and 2 small tins. Polished the brass with steel wool.
Easy start to the what to do with all of this stuff.
Next up are a Grimwades Winton early Chintz plate, a ceramic faux match box holder and a vintage metal oven thermometer (Brannan, London, England), an Ansley cup and saucer, black with lily pad flowers and then a peddler doll, a copper telephone tealight holder against a faux tin ceiling tile and a Handley covered serving dish and gravy with underplate.
Each week the thrifts and garage sales yield a very mixed accumulation of finds
and the selections this week were certainly varied.
Thank you for visiting.
