I have found a few interesting items this week at estate sales. A fireplace bookend. Surprisingly, it must weigh 5 pounds! I came across this set of wooden kitchen tools and a unique metal chair at another sale. I believe the chair is a pin cushion/picture frame? It is slightly larger than 1:12 scale.
I figured a fireplace of this weight might as well go with my heaviest cast iron furniture, my Arcade collection. To see my Arcade Cast Iron collection click on the Arcade link. I believe I have all of the pieces except the octagon shaped living room side table.
I did take a liking to these galvanized letters that I came across at Hobby Lobby the other day. (and they were half-off !) If you are new to my blog, you might enjoy this trip down memory lane and seeing the progress of my "man-cave"
