Yucky dip at todays estate


















Had to go through an awful lot of junk at an old local home today to find any treasures. There must have been 50 green rubbish bags full of the contents of the house. Everything except the furniture had been put into these and I had to go through the lot because the golden rule is you never know whats going to be inside so all must be examined. I guess you all know how I like to go through old junk but the 3 rats I came across did make me think twice but at least they were dead and not alive.
Favourites today ~ the 1960's lace up black go go boots and tall green and Brown German vase.
(Also got heaps of linen, cloths, tea towels, and fabric I'm yet to go through.)

  4. You're very brave to do battle with rats (dead or alive) to find treasure! It must be fun never being quite sure what you'll find. Leigh
