Do I need another vintage typewriter? No, but the price was right so I took it home with me. It comes with a nice little case... ...and I will most likely sell it.
...and someone tell me to stop buying all these old brass stencils! I just can't resist the numbers and letters...
A nice collection of old bottles. The one on the left is from a Druggist in Johnstown, N.Y. which is not too far from here and where some of my mother's family came from. A while ago, I found a larger sized etched bottle very similar to the second from left ...What did these etched bottles contain?
We're having some little ones stay with us again over the July 4th holiday.... ...thought these blocks would be fun.
A trio of turquoise pottery...
A trio of matte green craftsman era pottery...
And three of these Jack in the Pulpit dishes which match my Mom's set which we have here at the lake house.
That's all the pictures I was able to take before the heavens let loose and more rain fell! I'm really hoping that tomorrow it will be sunny all day!
So today I did lots of cleaning, some gardening and a bit of art. Playing with paper dolls, stamps and tags...
I haven't spoken with a single soul today... It sure is quiet up here! :) Have a great weekend!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
