September Thrift, Polish, Share

Who can resist fresh pumpkins from a favorite Vegetable Stand

We made a day trip up the Fraser Canyon highway for pumpkins, tomatoes that tasted the way we dream they should taste, wonderful peaches and plums and some fresh garlic and honey. 

The brass tealight lantern and brass stand (holding the Fall poem) were from a Church Sale out of town. 

 Here is the poem:

Longin' For You Pal

When the shadows get t' creepin'
Out across the close o' day,
An' the stars begin t' twinkle
In a lonely sort o' way, Then
there always comes a longin'
For the friends we know
are true, Though there may
be miles between us Good
ol'-fashioned friends like YOU

I love finding a 'real' vintage cutting board.

A little bit of Thanksgiving decoration.

Two collectible tins, a 78 record and a cast iron faux rusty candle holder.

The dessert server (works like a Lazy Susan), a pie carrier, enamel pot and a avacado green craft made shaggy dog cookie jar.

Cast iron, vintage tools and wood stove accessories.

Vintage tin mechanical sparkler Black Cat spinner circa 1950

DGS brought a head/cough type of cold home from high school 3 weeks ago - shared it with his Dad, then his Grandpa and finally it was my turn to share in the coughing and sneezing and headaches this past week (and I had worked at hand washing and wiping down surfaces etc. so I could avoid the cold.)

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Love the wood cutting board (and how you've styled it!), and I am also drawn to the cast iron tools. :)

  2. I agree with Rita ... the old cast iron pan/grill, the old tools and wood stove accessories are my favorite.
