Tools of the Trade

All these lovely antique tools have been languishing in my basement for well over a year... since I bought them at a GREAT Estate Sale.

Last week Mr. Anything Goes Here belately got around to cleaning and spiffing them up.
















Now they have had their photo glamour shots, and are finally available at my etsy shop, anythinggoeshere.

  1. Those old tools are wonderfully graphic and I can just picture them displayed on the wall in an office or den...Love the pewter, silvery tones! :)

  2. Tools of the trade...just inspiring to what hands used them.
    They evoke a real artistic feel.

    They make for great conversation pieces.
    will be back to visit now that I follow you.

  3. Stop it! Stop it right now! Your photo shoots are tempting me big time! ;-) Seriously, I hope people run to your etsy. You have the most awesome things for sale. We're in the middle of moving and if it weren't for that, I'd buy more.

  4. If someone had told me as a child that I would grow up and think that old tools were a thing of beauty, I would have had a good giggle! But they are and I do!
