Little model airplane has a motor, but it appears to be seized. This brought back fond memories of my father. He had three brothers and back in the 60's they all got into building model airplanes which they would then fly in a nearby field. They were so competitive that the planes got bigger and bigger, each trying to outdo the other. Finally, one day one of them built a plane so big, it wouldn't take off at all, and that was the biggest laugh of all!

I found several scales on a recent shopping spree, but had to stop myself from buying them all. I did get two, and this sweet little postage scale is one of them. Nice graphics on label still intact and some painted embellishments on side.

One of my friends occasionally finds things he thinks I might like and he brought me this today. He was right, I love it!! How cool is a log cabin in a bottle? I can't imagine how much work it would be to build this inside a bottle. It would take more patience than I have!

Interesting Doily stretcher has circles in various sizes to reshape doilies. Many pinholes in board show it's use! I think this would look great hanging on a wall. It just needs a hanger attached to back. Made by the Chicago Curtain Stretcher Co.

Bringing in this grain bin prompted me to change the look around the fireplace. I took down all the Valentine hearts and put up the shamrocks-I'm definitely ready for spring! The warm weather over the weekend was a nice change. I saw pussy willows for sale, so I just had to buy some!

This little piggy went to market.....Dover antique market where I bought her! I was just drawn to this piece, and spotted her hiding on the dealer's table. She has seven babies gathered by her side. Great aging crackle, with numbered marking on base. She is bigger than she looks in this photo and measures 10-1/2 inches in length.
