Today at a garage sale this cool large framed plane soaring above the clouds caught my eye, and when I checked out the woman selling it told me it was the original artwork from a Boeing 707 ad campaign that was used in Life and Sunset magazine in the 50s.


and here's the ad I think she was referring to

Our new shadow box. Thanks to our Portland friends for finding this for us! We love it, it really transforms the room. It's about twice the size of our first shadow box.

Found this at a moving sale Sunday. The little dark dots are holes for toothpicks (hors d'oeuvre) a la Treasure Craft menehune w/pinapple. My new tiki bar is almost done and this little pachyderm gets to sit on the barback.
The gent I got him from said his mom bought it in the 50's. It has quite a bit of crazing but not a chip anywhere.
Cheers

Be careful, a lot of the old floor tiles contain "Asbestos"....

I have worked with these tiles in the construction biz over the years. They are literally everywhere. The are perfectly safe if handled properly. The asbestos is locked in a matrix in the tile and will only be released if it becomes "friable" this can only happen if the material is sanded or cut with power tools. There are many website about using these tiles.
