Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
I think that anyone who does what I do, has to love history.
Last weekend I went to a yard sale where I picked up some precious pieces of history. I just wanted to share with you.
First this suitcase.
Just looks like an old suitcase right?
Check a little closer.
This one has done some serious traveling.
There are other stickers on it that confirm it has traveled through Europe pre-WW1. How cool is that. And to top it off...it's made of wood with a canvas covering on it. I love it! I want to clean it up without ruining the sticker.
At the same yard sale I found this baby bath.
This one is roughly from 1900. Some of the decals are still showing.
Adorable teddy bear and elephant.
It's actually in GREAT shape for it's age and the use it must have gone through.
Both handles are still firmly attached. and NO HOLES! It still holds water :)
Stuff like this makes me wonder about the people that used them. The babies that were bathes and people that traveled.
I do know that the people that sold it to me were immigrants from the Netherlands...so the chances of these items coming from Europe are pretty good.
I can so see these being used in some photography studio as props.
But till I sell them, I will proudly display them in my home. :)
