Happy Wednesday blog friends!
Thought I'd share some random pictures of ~ Old, Antique and Collectibles from around the homestead.
Eve from Lee Hill Primitives shared on her blog and challenged her followers to do the same.
Love the Hoosier! See the little whale tale with the shoofly on top. I won it in one of Carol's from Firecracker Kid's giveaways awhile back.
Pie Safe~ love the ditty bags Linda from Parkers Paradise gifted me. And the blackened beeswax pineapple from SIL Amy of Bumble Bee Lane.
1800's two piece hutch~ It's too tall for my downstairs rooms, so I have it stored in a spare room upstairs. I wish I could incorporate it somewhere I could enjoy daily. I was told by an antique appraiser, it was originally used as a cabinet in a old pharmacy to store drugs and is a rare find. It has locks on the doors, but the keys are long gone. You can't tell in the pic, but the glass is wavy and has bubbles in it. It's more beautiful in person, than this pic shows.
Showing the bottom of the hutch.
I love old wood boxes. This is an old tool box I keep candle fixings in.
Old baskets. I have two of these 1800's gatherings baskets.
My boyfriends grandfather/mother actually used these back in the late 1800's to take to the market to purchase veggies.
Old typesetters drawer, I use to display my tiny collectibles.
I love old bottles. The ones on the left I found while clearing brush in the woods. The ones on the right I have purchased from various places.
Old milk bottles are another collectible I love.
I love to collect Americana too.
The lantern behind the stars has a history, so I scanned the handwritten note for you to read. How cool is that!
Love old advertisements!
Hand carved Noah's and Ark. Noah is my favorite story in the bible.
I purchased this carved penguin about 10yrs ago. As soon as I seen his name I had to have it. My little brothers name is Tommy. Love ya Tom!
I've done a lot of stitchery's thru the years, but this is my prized possession. It took me a whole year to do~ you see I made this for my grandmom. When she passed away my mom got it and when she was diagnosed with cancer, she gave it back to me. I will always cherish this stitchery.
Not a good pic, but its an oil painting of my boyfriends family business they owned and ran for many years.
Hey Amy, this is the pic that scares Julie when she comes to stay. Lol.
It's an oil painting of my boyfriends great, great grandfather. I don't think it's that scary, do you?
I have so much more I could share, but most of its still in storage. You see, this old farmhouse is small and the rooms are smaller, so I try to surround my self with my most favorites for now.
I hope you enjoyed your visit as much as I enjoy you all stopping by.
I'll tell ya, I've been busy working on manly bunnies these days and now I'm having
nightmares dreams of them. Lol.
Have a wonderful week my friends!
