A few October finds from the Presbyterian Church Men's Garage Sale just up the street plus a very few garage sales. The quieter season for thrifting has arrived.
The Hemingway books and globe bookends made a pleasant literary vignette with the chalkboard and dark rimmed glasses (borrowed from DGS's costume collection).
This beauty is Northwood glass, a 3 fruit patterned blue lustre footed and handled bon bon dish. Love the way the sunshine showed the colours. Since rain has been pretty steady and heavy all week I was very happy to see sunshine. Big storm coming through Tuesday.
Federal Glass red dotted bowl, orange dotted bowl is unmarked, both bowls are cheerful, handy, medium sized.
A classic globe, great for display.
Grindley stoneware vintage mould, puppy with bow.
Bit of shaving history, straight razors in the original cases. Rusted blades, worn razors.
This little overnight case needed a bit of TLC. The lid interior backing and mirror were missing when I found it.
Small project. I used a piece of stiff cardstock, a piece of scrapbook paper that echoed the colour of the lining cloth and a mirror taken from a small framed mirror to make a replacement. First I cut/glued the paper to the cardstock (let it dry overnight under heavy books). Glued (used Carpenters Glue) the new backing to the suitcase inner lid and again weighted it down and gave it lots of time to dry. Third step was adding the mirror (again glued, weighted and several drying days). Secure, pretty again and ready for use.
Thanks for visiting.
