Here are a few of my other finds from the 127 Yard Sale of 2012. I found this forgotten post in my drafts...Ooops! It is a great pick-me-up as I write this, look out the window, and am blinded by the remnants of our last snow! Aaah, Spring is right around the corner. :)
Here are a few cookie cutters that I purchased. The flags, hatchet and drums will be new shapes to my collection. The black cat was just too darn cute to leave behind and will join a few identical friends ! ;)
On its arrival back to Illinois, the bowl was treated with mineral oil. The grain jumped out immediately. The grain makes the piece so unique!
** Note** At one of our motel stays, there was another gentleman that made some HUGE trenchers. If only I could've thought of a place to display one. Maybe this year! ;)
I just fell in love with these bobbins. On day one of our trip, I bought some of these from a gentleman that had tables FULL of various wooden spools and bobbins. He was cutting some tremendous deals. Later down the road, another gentleman had some with great patina, so they entered the grouping as well!
