When I started The WWR Chronicles, I said I would be interspersing them with "regular" blog posts...and I sorta tried to do that with my last post....but realized too late that the "S" (a/k/a "white") photos were not any more palatable to most of you (including me) than those horrendous pre-remodel photos.
So, this is a sort of an "apology," if you will, for all those awful photos of late...
The annual antique show in the town closest to Nod was this past weekend....and these are a few of the treasures that followed me home.... (I know some of you will find those photos a bit "prettier" than those in my previous 3 or 4 posts LOL....)
(A heart made from old bottlecaps)
(Cast iron shoes. The gentleman from whom I purchased them speculated that they may have been from a Victorian-era wood mannequin. And an old shoe oil can because?? Because I love everything shoes???)
(The best find of the show. This sampler was made by Eliza Staples....when she was a wee 9 years old...) (Ok Miss Marly - does this in ANY way atone for the photos of the awful s#*t???)
(Old German rabbits. The one on the right is a candy container and will join my herd of others.... The one on the left is not a candy container, but should blend in with the herd....and I didn't have a white one.)
(Heart in hand....actually an old glove...with a snippet from an old diary that says "I Love But One"....)
(A girl can never have too many chocolate molds. ;-) )
(Not sure what I will do with this yet....It's an old iron salvage piece of some sort, but the shape and form intrigue me....)
As my daddy always said, ugly is as ugly does; but do not confuse apologies with excuses, nor excuses with apologies.
Have a great week ahead!
