Hey, y'all! I'd like to share an old story heard years ago from I don't recall who. If you remember who started it, feel free to respond. Here goes.
A young lady well-born in the Deep South (that's in the United States for you people living elsewhere in the world) who had recently married an Air Force lieutenant found herself living in a small tract house on an airbase as their first home.
Her genteel mother felt sorry for the daughter's new and humbler circumstances so… Continue

You know all those vintage spittoons (or cuspidors as they are also called) that are adorned with pink roses, decorated optic glass or shiny iridescent glass, no man would dare to use them as they are too pretty! So, I am convinced the feminine spittoons were reserved for “ladies only” who could spit in style!
Back in the day, these fancy cuspidors were placed around hotel lobbies, in train cars, in parlors of homes and anywhere a… Continue

Recently, I have been getting back to my 'crafty' side! I have started creating my Vintage Jewelled Photo Frames. These first two vintage wooden frames came from a local estate sale. I found them during one of my treasure hunts! One of them has a photo of a very young Robert Taylor, who was a prevalent leading man in the motion picture industry. The photo of him in the one frame, appears to be from the late 1930's to 1940's.
The other picture frame was empty, so I printed the image of a… Continue

I have a piece that I have no idea what it is. It looks like an upside down funnel with a 3 foot handle. It is similar to an agitator for an old wash tub, but I know that is not waht it is. Ant ideas?

I have this photo/postcard that I acquired from a family member. My great, great, great Aunt traveled here with her husband in the 1920's. I thought it was so out of the ordinary that I would write a little about it. I posted the pic on eBay to sell (I have more that I am keeping) and in my research I found some interesting information. Mr. Byron Harmon must have been an interesting man in his day. He… Continue

I've been searching and educating myself with linking up url's and blogs to a variety of webpages I have.It seems like quite an undertaking. I feel overwhelmed! Anyone, have any guidance or quit tips on how to get started? Sadly, it seems to take me forever to learn all the lingo and techie language to get going. Am I the only one who is so easily confused?

This has started out to be one of the greatest days in a long time for me. Vickie, my wife, returned from Hawaii after nine days and we sure had a lot to catch up on whenever our son, Joshua, would let us get a word in edgewise. I learned a very serious lesson with her being gone and that was that having her home is the most important thing in the world to me. It took hours of… Continue

My husband was disabled a few years ago and we began supplementing our income by searching garage sales for treasures, estate sales, and thrift stores. I have really gotten interested in glass, although I am still learning about it.
I live in Central Illinois with my husband Steve, and our Cairn Terrier Toto, and yes she does look like she should be with Dorothy in Kansas. I also am a freelance writer, author of two published books, and sell on an antique site called Cyberattic. I… Continue

As most people know, Miriam Haskell began selling jewelry in 1926 but didn't start signing her pieces until 1949 when her brother took over the business side of the company - said to be due to her mental instability. That left 23 years of unsigned pieces for people to wonder, "Do I have possibly have a piece of Miriam Haskell jewelry?"
I would say her style and craftsmanship is so distinct, she probably didn't need to sign any of… Continue

"Ship It to Yourself....Don't forget to send it?"
Box it right ship it mean. You can send your items packaged to survive the trip. Arriving as your customers expected them to arrive, mean and lean ready to go. Over the many years in the logistics business and having to handle and deal with customers. There is one thing that you want to avoid , "un-happy customers". Give them the service that you would like to have given to you.
When an item is ready for… Continue

I shared this poem with my friends on Multiply a few months back and now I am sharing it with you. It was the poem chosen by my son when he was in 5th grade ( he is now 20), to recite during a school district event. Their teachers gave them different books with poems and had them choose the one they want. This was his choice...
I put this together using digital scrapbook elements, my other hobby.…
