It's amazing how fast a little trunk fills up!!
If we had only arrived at this yard sale five minutes earlier....oh, the stuff that got away.
This 1954 portion controller scale might have come in handy if I had found it the first day of vacation.
This pretty silver plated casserole holder came complete with the Pyrex dish. That black thingie in the back right is an old ammunition box that was full of fishing lures. I don't fish, so I gave them all to my mom...minus a few bits and pieces for making a necklace.
I was so excited to discover that big white wall decoration until I realized it was plastic. It fooled me at a distance and the price was right, so in the trunk it went. The chippy painted boards will most likely get some hooks.
I'm not sure what these two large brownish wall hangings are made from, but they have so much potential. They'll be getting a paint job.
This one is the real deal. Heavy, rusty, chippy, and gorgeous!
The architectural pieces are from the salvage yard and will be getting a paint job and some additional hardware.
I added a label from The Graphics Fairy to the bucket, and stenciled the newer galvanized bag. I like to take care of the quick and easy projects first.
I have a feeling this Tonka tow truck is going to be showing up in a lot of blog posts. It sure does a good job towing jewelry and buttons.
It does a good job towing jello molds and old kitchen gadgets too.
These old bottles will be getting some labels after I clean them up, and the wheel....well, I'm confident inspiration will hit soon.
These beauties took up most of the space in my trunk, but there was no way I was leaving them behind. They're four feet tall the way they stand here, and can be adjusted all the way up to six feet.
They were repainted at some point and I had quite a time trying to loosen the screw that allows the pole to slide up and down. Why on earth didn't the person paint them with the pole all the way up? Hopefully I'll be able to find some spray paint for the pole that will be a close match...don't want to paint over the rest of the fabulous rust surrounding the candle holders. Or, should I just leave them alone?
This yummy blue Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter is in perfect working condition and came complete with a zipper case.
This book is hilarious! What else can I say?
For your reading pleasure, these other books on "avoided subjects" were also available for $1.
Last but not least, is this adorable Tiny T-V salt and pepper shaker set.....complete with the box and directions. Turn the dial and the salt and pepper shakers pop up, push in the TV screen to hold a picture of the star of the show. This one's a keeper!
