old equipment and fun finds

vintage thingies thursday
















My Vintage Thingies

These are some things i have
seen on my walks in the morning.


Old Farm Equipment


An old, I mean really old, Wheelchair.


And these treasures.
When i walk I see things I would I
would not see if I were driving, or even riding my bike.
There were two of these,
tucked back under some bushes.
They were on each side of cement steps,
that had not been used in years.
I pushed the bushes aside and took some pics of them.
Then went up to the door to make sure it was OK i did. =0)

I'm not sure the man even knew they were there!
So, before i left, i gave him my name and phone number
and said if he ever wants to sell them
i would love to have them in my yard.
No calls yet,
but i enjoy seeing them when i walk that direction.



Here are some Vintage and Thrift Treasures.
Wait till you see what I'm going to do with these!!!


And here is some trusty dusty tinware, cooper,
and even some rusty cast iron.
(hope I did not already show you these sometime.) =-0


OK that's it for today. Short and sweet.
I have a mess at the store to clean up before i open.

Blessings on your day and thinks for coming by,
and thank you ladies, for doing such a great job hosting!!

Nice post today, Barb - enjoyed seeing the goodies you saw on your hike! Very nice! I just posted Mr. Linky for GET R DONE FRIDAY - I'm having internet trouble, so have not been able to post a picture of my new floor! They said it should be running well again in another day or two - could not even check emails! So, if you don't hear from me, that is why - And, you can just link up for Friday, hopefully that will go smoothly for you and anyone else that wants to join in! Bye for now!

Love your rescued treasures. My vintage thing today was also about repurposed trash items.

I wonder what those fragments were from, that you found on your walk? Wouldn't it be lovely if the owner called you and offered them? They are pretty!

Looking forward to seeing what you do with that garden hose sprayer!

Wonderful vintage finds! I love the cement thingies tucked under the bush, those are wonderful...I would so have knocked on his door too. Have a great VTT!

What interesting things you see on your walk. I cannot imagine some of these things just being cast aside. I hope you hear from the owner and obtain some real treasures.

I LOVE the old tractor and the wheel chair. That scrolly design by steps is beautiful too.

They're lovely Barbara. I love stopping to look when I see old farm equipment. It's almost as if everything just froze in time. The wheelchair is a sort of haunting beauty.

Thanks !

Interesting very old wheelchair! I am pushing wheelchairs at my job everyday. Brakes on and off, patients in and out, footrests on and off. No wonder I get worn out each day.

What are those things that you found under the bushes? Are they wooden? cement? Whatever they are, they are totally cool.
