A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Hidden-Treasures

~~~~~~

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.

Remington Typewriter.

Sunbeam Mixmaster

Silverware I never knew existed.

 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.

 

A Pentax SLR.  Fantastic.

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.

 

Another treasure.  A cow bell.

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.

One of my favourite pieces was

this hand painted vase.

It was dated 1978 inside the lid.

 

Finally, my favourite….

a very good condition Box Brownie,

complete with leather case.

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Teddy Bears, Toys

~~~~~

A variety of dolls and toys

but mostly re-posts I’m afraid.Candi’s much used and much loved ropes.

Over twenty years old but still brings a smile to our faces.

I think these may also qualify as dolls…

 

even though they are a bit big for the toy box.

 However, there was one young lady

who would have found room for this one.

It is the shortest day of 2017,

so what better way to spend a

Wednesday afternoon in winter...

than with a stretch after a game of fetch, or…

a favourite bone.

~~~~~

Hope you enjoyed.

It’s been hard to look really happy

this past couple of days.This was taken on Friday and bruising is still spreading.

Even though it is the result of too much sun,

I can now say I have had a ‘nose job.’  🙂
