It seems as if items from my Grandmother's and Mother's past keep creeping in from my Mother's garage every time I visit. I can't believe that these things were sitting in this neat wooden crate all dusty and in the dark. I asked my brother, who was also visiting, what he would do with these things if he had them. "I would sell them on Ebay" he said. "Ohhhhh,Ohhhh,Ohhh" is all I could cry when I heard that.
Mrs. Leland's Old Fashioned Golden Butter~Bits. Not as old as I prefer, but still needed rescuing.
Lovely kitchen supplies. The sifter is so neat.
Apparently Grandpa smoked cigars and Grandma tinted fabric. The .20 cents for the box made me smile.
If you know me you will understand why I squealed in delight upon finding this whisk brush in the box. It is Kippy Kit from the 1820's. I still can't believe it. Also this straight edge razor is from then too. Too cool.
And here is the awesome crate they were all sitting in. It had a lid on it, of some sort, at one time. Also it seems to be covered in some type of paper. There is writing underneath it all.
I love these types of things in general, but to know that your Grandfather and Grandmother held, used, and loved them makes these items so much more valuable.
