Welcome to Sure As Eggs' new look! I was getting tired of the dark brown background and I was ready for a change. I hope you like it!
I went to a couple of estate sales on Friday and I got some really nifty things.
First off, I found these really neat industrial looking tins. They are old film canisters. This one in the front appears to have had masking tape around it that was pulled off, leaving an interesting pattern.
I found this great folding rule.
Then I found two wind up tape measures.
I also found the most darling little purse.
It's lined with brown satin and has a small mirror inside.
Then I found this old thermos in perfect condition.
It's still in the box!
I also found this telephone message pad. It is so sweet. It reminds me of my grandmother who had a telephone answering service for years and years. She had this great little wall mounted cabinet with cubbies in it and the messages would be written down and put in the person's cubby. They would then call in and ask for their messages. When she passed away, the cabinet got thrown out. Much to my dismay. We do have her paperweight that was on her desk. It has a little gold telephone suspended in Lucite. If I can get my sister to let me take a picture of it, I''ll show it to you some time.
I also found this shabby tray at a thrift store on Friday. I love the grapes and vine pattern around the edge.
I will probably be listing these items in my ETSY shop. I've been checking out the vintage sellers on there and they seem to be doing well. Just thought I'd give it a try.
Well, I'm off to plan my dinner menu for the week so I can go to the grocery store. Fun! Now that I work in the store, I hate going there. Wish you could email your whole list and go to a drive up window and pick it up without having to go inside the store. I would so do that!!
Enjoy your Sunday!!
