I have a few hundred antique and vintage postcards...most of them Christmas, a few other holidays. This one popped up as I was sorting through them the other day trying to organize them for scanning. It makes me laugh. What a rude Christmas greeting! Anyway...I hope you all enjoy this one as much as I have. Please feel free to copy the image...I would love to have you leave a comment if you do!
Antique Cabelas Fish Lure Retractable Pin Shop Girl Pin From LeapingFrogDesigns
Ok...Really. I have no idea what this is for. At first I thought it was a shop girl pin. I have several of those...A retractable pin that the shopkeeper would pin to their lapel or sash with a pencil for writing orders. But now I am not so sure. I think it is an old Cabela's pin that a fisherman would wear on his vest to hold fishing lures or something of that nature (I am not a fish person as you can tell)
Anyway...If someone really knows what this is...please let me know. Otherwise...I think it is just fascinating..and somewhat useful.
I found this fantastic book catalog when I was out book junking recently. It is The Lunkenheimer Co. in Cincinnati Ohio. Look for more images of gages, and valves and chime whistles to name a few from this amazing catalog dating to 1912. Please leave me a little comment if you click the image. It is fun knowing where my pieces fly off to.
Another fantastic antique photo from my personal collection. I have cropped it into 4 different sizes because I thought each element was so interesting in themselves. If you decide to save this image please leave me a comment and let me know. I love hearing from you. Enjoy!!!
Oh I almost fell over in a swoon when I came accross these delightful Nicholas Lancret framed prints. They are in beautiful vintage frames softly brushed with gold. As you can see they are both sealed. and the back paper is the most astounding fleur de lis. They both say Made in Italy. Both measure 5 1/4 inches wide and 4 1/2 inches tall. They are both in good used vintage condition.
I can just picture them on silk ribbons for hanging...The perfect little decorator touch to finish off a room and nook.
