Here it is Thursday again what the heck happened to my week?! Already! Go check out Colorado Lady's blog because she has all the best blogs listed for VTT.
The vintage things I'm showing this week are not at all related, but just randomly chosen.
I love this old Christmas postcard from 1911, a sister writing to her siblings whom she sorely missed. I can't remember where I found this one........
and as charming as I find the front I really like it mostly because of the message on the back.
Now you all know what this is, use one weekly I am sure-not! Not for me either, sock memding, I used to though can you believe it? I darned my own socks in HS & my kids socks many a long year ago. This darner is older than that, it belonged to my friend's grandmother & it's a bit fancy, has different woods joined to make a pattern. You can see several designs of darners on eBay for $5-10.
This pill box belonged to the same person, I do not remember having pills dispensed in containers like this, do you?
Perhaps it was unique to this pharmacy.
Last is this old wooden coat hanger, a souvenir from our time living in Germany in the'70's. It was another of those items I picked up while "junking", & have no idea why I like it, but I have kept it for nearly 40 yrs so I must be attached to it,lol. It has a trade name on it, Schorpp, the name of the cleaner I guess.
Well that is my odd collection of vintage memorabilia for today, odd, very odd you say!
Why do we save what we do? Why do these strange bits & pieces of the past have such a fascination?
I saw the strangest chair at the thrift store last week & took a pic of it along with another oldie but goodie piece of audio memorabilia but only had the phone to take the pics & haven't yet discovered the means of downloading phone pics to my laptop. Perhaps by next week so I can show these two items to you.
I did get back to my quilting today, working on "Future's So Bright", maybe tomorrow it will be ready for a pic, right now it looks like this!
