Early yesterday morning, my Dad and I slipped out of the house
and went to the big yard sale down the street
while sister Lynn stayed with Mom.
It was really fun to share this time with Dad and it was beautiful...
...warm and sunny here in Florida.
I found this pretty little pin with the initials IHP.
I don't know if the pin once belonged to
Miss Irma Henrietta Parker or
Ingrid Helga Pierce or Ilsa Hanna Pepper...
or perhaps Imogen Heap Peabody.
But I like to think the initials stand for...
In His Presence.
And so I bought the little pin for $1.00
I also found these 3 crystal strands... all 3 for 50 cents.
I loved the graphics on the cover of this book of violin music.
As indicated on the bottom...it cost $1.00 back in 1902...
...and that is exactly what I paid for it yesterday.
And just look at this old ironstone platter from the late 1800's...
It was a steal at $3.00!
This rusty, old, heavy machinist tool box
was the very first thing we saw.
My Dad might have wondered why I was bothering to look at it...
but even he did not flinch when I said I would take it...
...for the one dollar price!
The bottom drawer is my favorite...
...skinny with cool compartments.
I can't wait to clean it up a bit.
The old reader is not in great condition
so I won't mind taking it apart for an art project or two.
It has some great illustrations and fun words.
An old green Allspice tin.
An old Jiffy Kodak camera...
to set on the shelf with my other vintage cameras.
Just in case you were wondering about the old photo...
...that is my grandmother..
...my Mother's Mother...Hazel Laura.
Front and center.
(The one with the X on it that says Me!)
Do you know that Nana and I went to the same college?
She was quite a girl...smart, headstrong and full of fun.
Just like my Mom!
Here are the little, child sized Swedish enamelware cups
after I cleaned them all up.
First, I found the little red and white enamel dishes
and now these blue and white cups.
Oh what a lucky girl I am.
So that's all for today.
Hope you had a great weekend!
