A Few Fun Finds
The junking last weekend was all in the neighborhood but I still scored some fun finds. Nina tossed the thimbles and other sewing notions into a baggie and GAVE them to me. How lucky am I!! More about the tape measure further down. The chippy white shelf is turned on its side so it will stand up for the picture.
When we were on vacation in Cali I saw some boxes similar to this in the Victorian Closet in Amador City. I loved them and picked one up and turned it over and quickly (and gently) set it back down at $150. I did NOT pay $150 at Nina and Joe's. It will be staying with me and is sitting on my dresser.
A glass rolling pin and a roll of very sweet kitten wallpaper. The rolling pin is still sitting here waiting for me to make up my mind between filling it with buttons or with lace. The wallpaper will be heading to Etsy.
A bundle of beautiful old lace still waiting for it's turn in the kitchen sink.
Vintage thimbles and a pack of tiny metal pups.
This tape measure is one of my favorite finds because I have never seen one like it. I hope you can click these pictures bigger so you can read it. It is wider than most at about 1". It says Formfit Figure Tape Measure for Brassiere or Girdleiere Sizes and dated 1949. How it works is a mystery but I am not it the market for a girdleiere so no worries, it will just be added to my collection.
