Recent Acquisitions

 I have not posted in a while, but that doesn't mean that I have not been adding to my collection.  We still have our house on the market and a lot of it packed up and in storage which has really put a damper on our lifestyle.

 These very detailed musical interments are actually Christmas ornaments that I picked up at a local music shop.  A banjo, an acoustical guitar, a french horn and a trombone.

 They are part of the items I have collected over the years for a well stocked music room or perhaps a music shop.

 I came across these antique bundt or mold pans at an estate sale.

 The Strombecker walnut fireplace was a recent ebay purchase.  

 It was one of the pieces I have been watching for.  The rest of my 1" Strombecker walnut collection can be seen by clicking here.

My 3/4" Strombecker collection can be seen here:

 My wife and kids got me this Tynietoy wing back chair for my birthday.

 I was tipped off by a fellow blogger about these Lynnfield chairs on ebay.  They date from the 1950's and will look even better once I select a fabric for the seats.

This dressing table chair was part of the Lynnfield lot on ebay. The pewter plates and small chest with working drawers were discovered on a lunch break estate sale
