So get ready! Lots of pictures coming your way!!
This is the Taters box. My grandpa Hammers(my dad's dad) made this. I have been told it was from the last walnut tree on his farm. The box was at dad's and it needed some Old English love!
So I gave it a good wipe down, and cleaned the inside too
I love it! :)
My family has had it since I was little, so I am happy to have it in our house!
Next: My antique finds!
My mom and I went last Friday to Red Queen's Attic. It's in downtown Rosenberg(right where the old theater is, just a few shops down). I got the tip-off from this awesome blogger. I had no idea about it beforehand!
Anyways, I LOVE that place!! There are SO many things there, it's a 2 story antique place! Score!
Here's my finds:
A cool old wooden crate! Mine for $20! :)
Sorry I was so excited about it that I put it up on my cabinets before I took a picture!
Later I'm going to get some greenery to put in it.
I also found this:
A blue Ball Ideal Mason Jar! :)
Plus it's full of old buttons!
I wanted a blue mason jar and a bunch of old buttons!
Ta-Da! Mine for $8, which I thought was great!
Then Friday evening my mom and grandma came over, I showed my grandma the blue mason jar and told her how pretty I thought they were. Well turns out she has some and offered to give me some! :D
Yay!! I love shopping at my grandma's! When she has stuff she doesn't want I go over and go through it to see if I could use it! I've gotten some great pyrex 9x11 dishes and neat "vintage" things from her! What a blessing!
So last night, I went over to her house and she gave me these:
(The jar on the right is from Avon!)
This is the mug in the middle.
It says "Jack in the Box Liberty Mug"
I believe it's from the 70's!
Then the big Ball Ideal Jar on the Left is a Bicentennial Jar! From 1976!
Here is my happy lil collection
It's on my mantle right now!
I am so happy with them!
Thanks granny! :)
She also has a milk glass pot she is going to give me, since she doesn't use/want it.
That's all the pictures of my vintage stuff I have gotten recently!
Have a great day! Enjoy the sunshine!
