Another gorgeous day today. Chuck spent until 10:30 a.m. painting the guest room and wanted to get away from the paint fumes so out the door we went. I saw on Facebook My Favourite Antique Store had many new items so we made our way there. When I saw this big wooden bowl(?) I though of my Oma making sauerkraut in something similar. She even had a similar chopper too.
This diorama was very interesting. It is hard to tell but the logs were the size of your pinkie finger. Such fine work.
Does anyone else remember their Grandmothers wearing hats like this? I sure do! My Mum's Mum always wore a hat. She had one just like this!
I thought of you, Granny Marigold, when I saw these. So pretty.
Everything you need to run your own Bingo Game!
I. Love. This. Painting. It remind me so much of our cat growing up named Simon.
An A.Y. Jackson print. Very Fallish. Pardon the lights!
We have a similar toolbox that belonged to my Dad. He apprenticed as an electrician back in the fifties and couldn't afford to buy a toolbox so he knocked one up just like this from scrap wood that was laying around my Opa's barn. He always hung on to it and about 10 years ago I asked him if I could have it. He replied"What do you want that old thing for?" I said "Because you made it". I got the toolbox and a big hug too.
I like different things and I thought this platter was lovely.
I remember a kettle just like this sitting on my Oma's stove. It is actually quite large. Always had to have lots of hot water for pots of tea!
I have a bowl very much like this one. They wanted $89.00 for it. I think I paid $1.00 at a yard sale for mine.
Does anyone else remember this pattern from Pyrex? It is now called "vintage". My aunt has a large set of this. You know you are getting older when things you use everyday are referred to as vintage!
I do collect Jadite but I don't have this much. Most of the vintage things we have are picked up at yard sales and thrift stores.
I think this photo is just beautiful. Again, pardon the lights.
I was racking my brains trying to think what canned goods Quaker had.
We both love this bookcase. It may find its way to our house yet! Pardon my leg! By now it was getting close to lunchtime so we though we better head home.
The clock tower. We noticed Mr Rolph must not be doing his job fixing it as the time is 4:15 according to the clock but it was actually 11:30. Hmmmmm.
With all this lovely weather the bird feeders are very busy. Mr Goldfinch was enjoying a drink of water.
We have another batch of baby Black Squirrels. There originally was three but on Thursday morning I came home from errands and found one dead at the base of one of our mammoth oak trees. They race around right at the top of the trees and I guess one fell. So sad.
I think this is the little Mourning Dove family. The babies have grown up but still stick close to the mother.
The yard would seem empty without Chippy! He is usually around somewhere. I just filled the feeders before sitting down to write this and he came running when he saw me putting down some peanuts. Yes, I spoil them!
If you are still with me, Thank You as this was a long post. We are off to the Hardware Store to pick up some new receptacles. As Chuck paints he changes all receptacles and switches.
