I said I would share some things I brought from my PEI house in the last post, so here they are.
Finally, we had enough room in the car to bring back these radios - I've wanted to drag them home for a while and I've placed them on a corner shelf already. I thought I had them cleaned up nicely but after taking these pictures, they might need a little more work!!
I remember this was placed on top of the fridge - no, it doesn't work and the other one definitely doesn't work!
Dad must have picked this up from some relative, I never saw it before. I'm pretty sure it's a Bakelite radio - love it!!
I've wanted to bring this flower bowl back for a while too, I so wanted to put some pansies in it because I remember Mom doing that, sadly, my pansies didn't make it when I was away!! I looked this piece up in Mom's trusty Depression Glass book - the true name is "Old Colony" but also called "Lace Edge". There's a little bonus with that, another little glass frog was inside it. This pattern was made from 1935-1938.
Sometimes you recognize things that other people find and post - that was the way with these plastic plates, as soon as I saw them I knew we had them! They were still there - I found them packed away in a box with some ornaments. Don't they really look like glass? They're really delicate!!!
I found this up in a cupboard..
Neighbours of ours gave me this for Christmas in 1974 - I wrote it on the little tag - she plays "Somewhere my Love" - why I have left it there all this time, I don't know. I always thought she was so pretty and notice it's a Josef!
What was the sense of leaving my little Easter cup - it's here and ready for next Easter now..
Mom kept a lot of my things from when I was small, this is something else that I thought was still around - I just bought a few pieces - my tin play dishes.
Yes, these are my squeak toys - I think I must have liked cats way more than I do now, his ears and tail are chewed up pretty good!!
Now that I've blogged about it all, I can put it away!!!
