I'm working on....

Guess.... or just stay tuned.

New finds:
An old Singer sewing machine.
Needs cleaning & TLC.
If not purchased I may take it apart too. =)
Old books, silver, and photos.
Old silver tin, bell, and purse.
In great shape isn't it??
Have a super shiny, bright and sunny, Monday.

Hi Barbara Jean...This might help - You go to dashboard, then 'blogs I'm following' then 'manage blogs' then click 'settings' for the blog you want to delete. Then click 'sign in' then close the pop up. Then re-cilck 'settings' and there will be a link 'remove blog'
Sometimes blogger can be sooo frustrating.

Is it a cash register? That looks like you have your work cut out for you, have fun. You must be a true recycler, love to see what comes out of it. When we were kids my mom will buy mechanical toys and we will take them apart looking to find what made them do what they do. My poor mom of course will be upset, but it was so much fun.The mesh bag, I collect those, kind of hard to find but so pretty. Blessings, Marta.

Hmmm, very complicated looking gadget, but I have no idea what it is. Sure looks interesting though.

You have some great finds here, I love all the silvery goodies. Isn't it fun to see how these machines work? They don't build them like that any longer. They may be smarter these days, but they don't last.

Hmmm...BJ...looks like a label maker of some kind?

Your machine looks like it could be the inside of a comptometer. yeah, I used to be a whiz on one of those that and the telex machine. Whatever it is, it's pretty cool along with your other finds.
