Friday favourite ~ Lace Irons


Here are three of my favourite lace irons. The one on the left started my love of these little beauties. It was my mothers as a young child. She used it for a dollies iron and her father fashioned the wire handle as it had lost its original handle. I too played with it as a child. The one on the right is my latest addition, it was my Aunties iron and she too used it for her dollies, although they are of coarse meant for ironing delicate lace and fancywork. There sentimental value make them my favourites although I have now got many more in my collection.

Bakelite telephone system to keep track of hubby


The lady I got these off said, when I asked her why she had so many old phones, that it was to always be able to contact her husband no matter were he was. In the shed or in the many rooms under the old house.

Friday favourite ~ Sydney Harbour Painting




Very occasionally there are some items that when we get them I just know they are keepers. So it was with this painting. I could look at it for hours and love the setting, and the way the artist , has captured the interaction of the figures. The artist herself sounds like an amazing person from what I know of her. Cut in the mould of a Katherine Hepburn ,she was born in Kangaroo Point here in Brisbane not far from where I live, in 1885 but recieved acclaim in Sydney as an artist. I love that she was known as one of the few women in Sydney, early last century, who drove her own car.

6 Trumpets but no band



Title should read 6 Trumpets but no stands.

Normally you find the stands with out trumpets. Very unusual to find two sets of outstanding antique trumpets like these.

A Tale of two teddies


These two fellows have led different lives. Though I think the almost new looking teddy would only be 10 to 15 years younger than the other fellow.



Is it better in the long run from a teddy's point of view, to be well loved or to be stuck on a shelf and ignored ? Which is harder for a TEDDY to BEAR ?

Friday favourite ~ My Stone Statue


This statue I salvaged from my Grandfathers house many years ago. I instantly loved it! It was done by my father as a young man and he never actually finished it. For this reason the man looks like to be still emerging from the stone. My father was one of those guys who could do almost everything handy and created lots of furniture etc but this man is my favourite thing he made. He sits on my front steps and my dog Asteroid, see earlier Friday Favourites, likes to rest his head on him.

Queens Birthday here in Queensland



Note sure if everywhere else in Oz has the day off today. Royal spoons pictured. The sterling silver one of Queen Victoria is in memoriam rather them celebrating tours or throne taking so not so cheery from her point of view.
