Old Stuff That Is New To Me

February 23, 2014
I am constantly on the lookout for old stuff.  Here are my newest "old" finds.

This is the knob on a great old walking stick.

Not sure where it will end up, but for now it is atop my china cabinet.

Abraham Lincoln Bookends  wwww.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
I am still loving the Abraham Lincoln bookends I bought recently.  

Presidential Collectibles wwww.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
I pared down my President's Day coffee table vignette after President's Day to just a wood crate, bookends, presidential books and pinback buttons.  

Dapper Gentleman Wood Carving wwww.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
This dapper gentleman is a wood carving. I love his boots, red coattails, and monocle.  Carver unknown!

A great old gardening book from the 1950's from Sunset.

I am painting my kitchen soon and will be changing and/or the wall decor.  I hope to use some of these great old cookbooks in my displays.

Diabolo Juggling Game Pieces wwww.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
 I had no idea what these were when I first saw them at the antique shop.  They are Diabolos, from a juggling game with string and sticks.  I thought they would be fun in a bowl, basket or jar for $10.  They are wooden.

I also picked up two more vintage clipboards for $1 each.  Since these have a laminate top over the hardboard, I may paint them with chalkboard paint.

Quadruple Plated Bride's Basket wwww.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
I also got this quadruple plated Aurora brides basket.  I found that one of my cloches fit on top pretty well.  I have more polishing to do, but doesn't it have a beautiful pattern around the edge?

There is still lots of snow and cold weather here but I am working on some spring projects.  Hope to show you soon!
