My photos for this week’s challenge come from
the gatherings, over fifty years, of my in-laws.
Mother-in-law passed away suddenly
(maybe as a result of a hot spell of weather)
in January and a few months ago
father-in-law decided to sell up and
downsize to a retirement village.
At the commencement of the cleanup
many things were going to be ‘thrown out’.
I volunteered to photograph and list them
for sale on local Facebook pages.
So here is a few of the treasures which came to light…
most of which I had never seen since
meeting MGW’s family in the mid 80s.
Those who are enlightened will reccognise this
as a cigarette lighter.
I saw it only as a front door stopper.
People were jumping out of trees,
so to speak, to buy this.
Eldest granddaughter decided she
might take up film photography.
She may have a free camera however,
I don’t think she is aware of costs
involved in development of prints.
Sold in minutes because there is
a bell collector in the area.
Pity a collection of china bells was
thrown out prior to selling phase.
No idea who painted this, however,
if I had a wall AND was single…..
It did find a good home though.
this hand painted vase.
It was dated 1978 inside the lid.
Finally, my favourite….
a very good condition Box Brownie,
complete with leather case.
