Weekend Finds Continued

I saved the best for last--a very old typewriter from the local pharmacy used
to type the labels for prescriptions...

This isn't from a garage sale, it was one of my favorite beach finds in Martha's Vineyard! I think it came from a private island west of MV belonging to the Forbes family.

Not especially exciting, but these wooden things will certainly come in handy at some point--isn't that the whole reason we do this, besides the thrill of the chase? Finding a pair of old gilt frames is unusual, though. And old yardsticks are always cool.

This is a hot plate from a chemistry lab that goes up to 600 degrees F.
Ready for some mad science?


  1. It washed up practically right as I walked by, bullet holes and all!

  2. I love all your assemblage work. A woman after my own heart, I love scrapping. Have a look at my C.R.E.A.T.I.O.N. collection on my flickr site, it's all stuff I have collected of the moors where I live in England. I've got an old typewriter too in my garden. Best wishes Lynn
