Memory Hunting - 02-27-2011

Although we got a few more inches of snow again last night my GF and I decided that wasn't enough to deter us from our memory hunt today. 

Mother Nature was actually in a good mood today and decided to give us some warmer weather for a change...  now 36° F isn't exactly beach weather but it was insurance that we weren't going to run into anymore snow along the way.  

I didn't find what I was looking for, hahaha I never know what I am looking for, who am I kidding... but I always know I am going to find something I don't need or have a home for...

now if you are a prim lover could you really turn down this awesome wringer for $22.00?... oh this one brings memories flooding back... we actually had a wringer washer my whole life living at home and no dryer... can you even imagine raising 5 kids with no automatics.  I detested doing laundry for my mother... my sell off was if my sister washed the clothes and hung them out I would bring them in and iron them... I had a lot of experience ironing let me tell ya... now I don't iron anything unless I absolutely have to

I just had to grab this butter press for $15.00... these are getting harder and harder to find and they don't usually come cheap...



 the inside press...

aren't they a cute couple?...

you know the rule... cast iron

and a bank... hands off, it's mine... $7.00

and she already had a big sister waiting for her at home... isn't she cute? 
I just love this piece

I have never seen one of these for pepper before, they have always been for salt... now where did I see the salt ones now that I want it...hmmmm

it isn't old but that is okay... for $4.00 I wasn't too concerned about it...

a cute little cast iron cobbler's shoe mold... $3.00

 a handmade bat house... $15.00...
this is going to get a makeover and find a home in a tree in the yard... did you know bats eat thousands of mosquitoes a day... I know we have bats around here so why not give them their own address... I might be able to sit out on my deck this year without getting eaten alive.


I found the red spice box on Ebay last week... it looks exactly like the authentic one that I have been wanting for so long but just cannot justify paying $200 + dollars for... I won this one for 17.50... I was thrilled.

Well I am off to watch another marathon run of that Hoarding show and snap myself back to reality... lol

Hope you all had a great weekend... thanks for stopping by.


Hugs, Deb

I love that wringer and the pepper box. We had a wringer washer when I was growing up. I also had one when we lived in the mountains before we moved back to Indiana. I used it all the time and hung my clothes out to dry, even in the winter. Those are definitely memories for me.
