Recent Acqusitions

I have spent a few more of my lunch breaks at garage and estate sales

I have acquired a few new items recently. The antique style bike is actually a Christmas ornament.  I came across the picture at an estate sale.  The back is hammered copper and the artwork itself is made from small pieces of wire or straw?  The small pot of flowers is all made from paper (even the pot)  The rocking horse is heavy metal that has been painted a few times.  The group of ceramic puppies are labeled Japan on the bottom and the House of Miniatures kit was a recent eBay purchase.

I also came across this antique silk embroidered piece at an estate sale.  I cut off the tattered ribbon around the edges.  It will make a great rug somewhere.

I figured I could keep these puppies in the laundry room for now.
The laundry room is part of my Arcade Cast Iron collection.  Click HERE to see the rest.

I have placed the flower pot temporarily in the Garbe house.

  1. Troy. This brings back memories. After you commented on my blog, it reminded me to check yours out, which I haven't done in a bit, and I see in the first posting a House of Miniatures furniture kit. I remember building a table and a sofa from those kits. I think a grand piano too, unless it was a different company. I've been looking for the name of those kits and now I know. Great acquisitions by the way:) Tom
