Trowels and New Treasures

Ever notice how many different kinds there are?
Metal ones with wood handles.
(see that very very old on on the top right?)

All metal trowels in bright colors.
And look at this old trowel.
Hand crafted I think. And big and heavy.
Must have been one big, strong man (or woman) who used this.
And here is my new treasure.
An old, but small wringer for a washer.

I finally found a bucket for it.
Not quite small enough, but it will do.
You know I am lovin' this.

Thanks for coming by.
Happy Tuesday blessings

The wringer immediately put me back in my grandmother's wash house on wash day. I used to love to watch her wash clothes. She had several #2 buckets set up. Soap, rinse, rinse and finally through the wringer. She didn't get a new fangled washing machine until 1967, I believe it was. I don't know why they waited so long. They could well afford it. I think she just preferred doing it the way she was used to. And maybe it was therapy.

Ooh! I love the wringer. That is so cool! Your purple and yellow flowers put me in the mood for spring! Today is the first day in 3 weeks that the wind isn't blowing so I have been outside enjoying the sun!

That wringer is cool, but it would be a constant reminder of my childhood! Personally I LOVE the white chair.
