Those aqua/pearl colored chairs are ones I have never seen before.

Great set !


these were literaly buried in debris in a basement,They came from an estate of a horder.I've never seen anything like that before tons of stuuff in bags /boxes everywhere. still diging.
It took a couple hours to get everything that was piled on out of the way and tossed , it wasn't until I got them home and cleaned them (and they cleaned up beautiful) that I noticed the pearl on the aqua chairs.
I love them ,kinda reminds me of my 69 GTO CONVERITBLE with the white pearl interior.
Now ,if I only had a place to use'm.

I love going to Estate Sales of hoarders...I say the more junk to dig through the better!

I went to a 8 room house --including 2 car garage and an entire backyard of nothing but tables upon tables of stuff--estate sale not too long ago. Best thing everything was $1. I think I spent $60 total and packed my car to the brim! Love me some hoarders!

Picked this chick up to hang out with my servicemen:

Picked up this very cool painted hubcap at Brimfield on Friday. I guess I'll hang it in my pin-up bathroom. I love finding one-of-a-kind stuff like this.:

Posted some stuff in Tiki Finds & Vintage Barware, too!

BK has some nice scores lately, and that hubcap is waay cool! I also like the fact you bought the pic of the dame to keep the GI, company! I found a rainlamp today($15), and will post pics later this week, once I get it running and set up the way I want...(Always wanted a large rainlamp, close to 32" from the finial/hangar!)

Hey, Tom! I passed on one of those yesterday cuz the dealer was off looking around & his wife didn't know the price! If it's there the next time I go, I'm gonna try & grab it. Am I the only one this happens to? If you're gonna leave your booth, price your stuff so whoever's watching it can sell it!

ArRrrRrRRrRRrrgghhH! Looksee what washed ashore on ol crapTOMics beach, aye?! Tis' a Bloom'n Dubloon from the land of Disney. A fine catch indeed, but I cheated, er' found it on seabay, Yarrghh...Unstamped, and is a fine specimen, indeed.
Yea, my pirate accent sucks, whatever! I was surprised to find one of these personalized dubloons un-struck, or in other words not stamped with someones message. I used to love the machine that made these, and too bad it was always out of order when I went...I did get to make one coin, when i was a youngin', but I lost it somehow!





I got one of those from the machine when I was a kid. I had mine stamped "BEWARE OF SKELTON"--pirates are notoriously bad spellers. It's long-gone now.

I am home for a few weeks and came across boxes and boxes of letters and cards that my Grandparents (my Dad's parents) wrote to each other during WWII.

These are some of the 100s of cards and postcards that were from around 1939-45. Many military and some when they were courting. Reading through the messages and then the notes they wrote to each other are so romantic I have been crying all morning! Almost every military greeting card to "My Sweetheart" is signed "Good luck and write soon!".

My Grandfather died a few years ago and my Grandmother just turned 91. I have included kinda fuzzy photos of my Grandpa in his uniform and close ups of a few of the cards. I can't believe they saved all of these...there are even WWII welcome to the base booklets, manuals on how to use your firearms, menus from dinner dances.

On top of all that there must be over 1000 letters still in their envelopes. I plan on organizing them all by postmark and reading them through from beginning to end.

I am so excited to now own all this I thought I would share so everyone who is into WWII items would be able to share in my amazing "finds"















(my grandpa is the one on the left, then the right, then by himself)

I think that's exactly where I got the spelling.
