No, I am not doing any yard work in the middle of the night. But the lure of the outdoors was so strong this weekend that I had to get out there and spruce things up.
Last year's curbside finds were looking VERY trashy to me out there in the yard so I took a load of the junkiest junk to the dump and started rearranging the rest~ Not best, just the rest.
Also hit several Estate Sales and will share some of my finds later this week.
But today I thought I would finish with the collections on the green cupboard that I dusted the other day.
This general store jar has pretty carmel and brown colored shirt buttons and some dice. I have a weakness for dice.
Behind the jar are some old leather books. I use old books as props in almost all of my displays. You may have noticed that already.
These are iron whatsits. I have no idea what they are, but they are HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY.
As children, both I and and later my daughter collected what I always thought were "fossilized fish vertebrae" from the shores of Lake Michigan. As an adult I have been told that they are crinoids.
Which they are, I'm not sure, but they along with driftwood, sea glass, and pretty rocks were the things I stuffed in my pockets for the bike ride home from the beach each day in the summer.
Some of these I have had for over 50 years.
Another tin lidded general store jar with rummage sale candles. More of those creamy, carmel tones that I find so peaceful to live with.
I am sure these tablets "regulated" something. I am not sure we want to know what.
We will leave dusting for a while and move on to some other things tomorrow.
