A bit of broken glass from a candlestick. Two soldiers. A rusty toy car encrusted in dirt. A long screw.
Do you have a favorite appliance? My friend just repaired the pin that holds the head onto the body. It had worked its way out so the head wobbled when being used. I was so pleased it could be fixed as this Kitchen Aid mixer was a gift from my dad in 1986. It’s been a reliable workhorse in several kitchens where we’ve lived. A lot of birthday cakes and batches of cookies have been produced with it. And when I realized how happy I was it was fixed, I decided it’s my favorite appliance (with my toaster I received for my 50th birthday a close second).
I photographed this house before. New housing developments are all being built all around what used to be farmland, cornfields. Barns
Soap. We use a lot of it, especially these last couple of years. Do you sing Happy Birthday every time?
According to an article in Healthy ““Whether soap comes in a bar or in a liquid form, they are both equally effective at reducing pathogens and removing dirt,” says Rachel Burns, MD, a dermatologist in Edina, Minnesota…”
Just thinking about soap today. I wanted to show a tiny wrapped bar of motel soap but couldn’t put my hands on one tonight. A year ago I posted about bars of Fels-Naptha soap but that’s another post.
Do you have one in your home? Do you have a door that will swing shut if it isn’t held open with a doorstopper? We used to have a cast iron iron.
I saw a window full of vintage door stoppers, mostly painted cast iron. There are animals, people, flowers. Gnomes. Right now I use a concrete (or is it cement?) owl. I bought the owl in a gallery in Mansfield Ohio.
People collect them. Vintage and Antique Doorstoppers or door porters as they are called are written up in Collectors weekly
