Thought I would share a few random items I picked up lately. This old desk lamp has such beautiful character. I especially love the base. It needs to be cleaned up a little, but I see potential.
These two pieces came together. Not sure I really like the egg crate painted this color blue, but there is something about the lines of an egg crate that draw my eyes immediately to it. Couldn’t leave it behind. Now trying to decide if I should paint it a different color or sell it as it is.
I met an elderly lady who was selling all of her possessions. She was going to be moving into an assisted living place. She was such a sweetie. I spent some time chatting with her. It was hard for her to sell her treasures, but she felt better about it because her grandson was buying her home that she lived in for 55 years. I just wanted to hug her. I purchased this lighted picture of Jesus on the Cross. My Grandma had something similar sitting on her bookcase. I remember sitting there and looking at it. When I would moved slightly I would see this…
The Resurrection. I don’t know what this type of picture is called. Depending on the angle you can see a different picture. I loved it on my Grandma’s bookcase. I am sure I will keep it for a while just to remember Grandma Lena. Many times when my parents would go to town, they would drop us off at Grandma and Grandpa’s to stay with them while my parent’s got their errands done. Most of the time my Ukrainian Grandma would make us borscht soup for lunch. I didn’t like it at the time because she added lima beans. Oh, but I would give anything to sit in front of that bookcase looking at this picture and eating borscht soup one more time. And I do love borscht soup now, just not with lima beans in it.
Found another older typewriter. Probably should have passed on this one. It is quite dirty. Hope I can get it cleaned up.
As you may have figured out, I love old containers, boxes, baskets, or tins. Love this bright red shortening can.
Finally I picked up this patriotic men’s necktie that I listed on Ebay. With the 4th of July coming up before we know it, I thought it might sell well.
Are you finding anything new and exciting on your wish list?
