Well, the dining table was emptied yesterday morning and here it is again full and there is some real treasures today.
The old sign at the back is so great don't you think ? Perfect for fun in a kitchen or bathroom. Heavy old number off a train.
Note the early years 1909 above and 1926.
The lamps at the back are big railway lamps as you can see from the one beside them.
Old bugle, amazing old syringe...which looks pretty scary!
Fabulous old skates, the ones you wear over your shoes.
Wonderful old enamel discs that would have surrounded switches etc You could do something really creative with them in a bathroom, kitchen or laundry.
These may have to stay here with me. They are travel mementos from ships.
Lots of old crystal and glassware.
Stunning Italian violin.
It is a beautiful day here in Brisbane. I hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Remember this gal, Nan? She's been at it again, shopping on my Dining Table.
This time she chose a lovely Victorian Jardinere. But look out whose this ?
It's a new generation of dining table shopper, my niece, Hannah.
She was very excited to find a vintage torch.
A couple of new batteries and it was good to go.
This afternoon I did a rearrange at the Cottage Garden Nursery. I had my trusty sidekick, and chief duster, Nan with me. It's always nice to have a helper and she had to pay off her Jardinere, just kidding.
Bottles and Boxes
Lovely old butter box
Silky Oak Blanket Box
Stylish old carver chair
Queenslander Bench Seat
Restocked some of the crystal and glassware
It's been a long weekend here in Brisbane. So we will no doubt be playing catch up all week. Hope you all have a lovely week.
