Sad Iron and wooden handled trivet base

Continuing with the Church Sale finds...
I used both Picnik and PicMonkey when editing my pictures.

  1. What a bit of history! Can you imagine using that iron today--where is the shot of steam button? Have a good day.

  2. Wow, ironing has come a long way! I love the history this iron represents!

  3. Good morning Joy, I just read your last three posts. Your advice for selling in an antique mall is right on. I used to do this. A fun experience but you need to know how it works best.
    Your iron finds are so interesting. I can see you love the primitive antiques. So do I. You have a good eye, especially overlooking the cobwebs. HA!

    Happy antique shopping and selling.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  4. Joy,
    I am like Jeanne just got caught up on last three post. Love that one about being a dealer. I agree with everything you said. At the mall when someone says " this would be fun", I tell them it's a job I just happen to love but still lots of work.

  5. Hi Joy, thanks to you we have inspired lots of people in blog land to change their headers! Your instructions were brilliant to follow! Thank you.
    Tony bought his dad one of those old irons last year as a door stop, and I must say its very effective.

  6. I am going back to read the last few posts I have missed of yours.
    Your photos are alwasy so beautiful. Love your banner too. Photography is not my gift!

  7. Great photos!
    Very pretty - someone will be happy to add
    those items to their personal collection.
    "Iron" is a four letter word, ya know. lol

  8. Those trivets would be wonderful hanging on a wall. I love the irons but am so happy I've never had to actually use one! ~ Maureen

  9. Thanks for throwing in the history lesson - sad iron. Who knew?

  10. love the history lesson, what a great piece!

  11. Really wonderful and interesting finds! I have a sad iron trivet as well but without the wood handle.

  12. These are both lovely finds! I'd have been pretty pleased to come across either of them :-)
