Grandma's Goodies

Good Monday Morning to you!

A few posts back, I showed you pictures of my *Parlor* Living Room re-arranged. In that I also featured a wonderful old Singer Pump Sewing machine that had been my hubbies grandmas. But I didn't show you all the wonderfully vintage items that probably have been in the drawers for many years. You can tell that many of these items were from the 40's and 50's, just by the packaging. I decided to display these items since they have such sentimental meaning to me...I admit it, I am a sap for family history and items that they have had. The buttons are also in a 4 leaf Clover glass serving piece that also have 4 individual smaller 4 leaf clover pieces as well. I would imagine that these were for nuts and mints...anyone ever seen something like this? I'd love to know more if you have any ideas.


I did end up sanding and re-staining the top portion of this machine, due to paint splatters all over...can't believe this was just sitting in a basement for years!

Aren't these neat?

These are old keys...I wonder what they opened?

Some Misc. containers of needles, pins and such...


Oh Yes, I am giving you a sneak peek at what's at my EBAY auction this week!
