Whew! The heat broke today. Finally! It was only 97 degrees. Almost felt like a cool snap. Except for the sweat dripping off your nose and running in your eyes. Anyway, I had a bit more get-up-and-go. So I got up and took a couple of pictures. Thought I’d share my absolute favorite finds from last week. There’s a bunch of stuff that I’ll try to take pictures of later, but I really liked these two things and am keeping ’em for my very own self. And you know what’s really nice about them? They were rescues! They were going to be tossed. Two different families getting rid of their parents’ stuff.
I’ve begged and nagged and tried to educate people I know not to throw stuff away without letting me take a look first. How many times have I heard, “Oh, it was all trash. You wouldn’t have wanted any of that.” Then I’ll ask if there were, say, any buttons. They looked shocked. And yes, there were. So I keep on begging and nagging and trying to make people understand not to toss anything.
So, at the home where I got this
clock photography timer, a whole house full had already been thrown away. There were a few closets left. I came out with a car load, but most was just storage type stuff.
I’m in love with the
clock photography timer and trying to figure out where to put it. But can’t you see someone throwing it out? I mean, it’s all crusty and messed up and probably doesn’t even work.
Then at another friend’s parents’ house, they’ve been cleaning out for awhile, but I did manage to tell them early on not to throw anything away. Got lots of tooky stuff there, but my favorite is this picture:
I’d taken the glass out to wash it when I took this picture. It’s just lying on the floor. I know exactly where it’s going.
Just look at that sweet, little, curly headed shepherd! He looks a lot like Cupid in my collection of Cupid pictures (Cupid Awake, Cupid Asleep). He should fit right in.
