Show & Tell


I've been hitting a lot of great garage, rummage and estate sales this summer and wanted to show you a couple of unique items that I picked up recently that really intrigued me 


The first one actually belonged to a Governor and then Senator of The State of California. 


I'll let it speak for itself!
































Ok, aren't they amazing?



Next up is a most ingenious way to store and use honey.












It makes perfect sense to me!

So, have you ever seen either one of these things before?

Hi Terri

The first one has me spellbound. My mind is racing trying to visualize the owner. What a treasure and conversation piece.

The honey container is also very special.

Wishing you a week of joy

Ok Terri
Those hangers charm me, If they were mine I think I would have to find a way to hang them on a rack that everyone could enjoy looking at them!
You truly find the best rumage tag sales, your so right I need to make a special visit to you my friend and we can go hit some of your estate, yard, garage, tag sales, you can take Hannah and I around to where you find the best of Broncante pieces.

Come see what I found, a $60.00 Monster of a unit and see the before and after, I had a little help on it, While Hannah was on summer break we got busy enjoying what we do best...CREATING !

Good Golly! I am in love with those handsome hangers. They remind me of fabulous "campaign" items / furniture made for high ranking men of the military! Cool finds, Terri.

PS - I've not seen either before....and I do a whole lotta fleaing, antiquing, junking, etc.

Those hangers would make a great gift for any man or woman who travels a lot.

There usually aren't enough hangers in hotel rooms. I usually take a skirt hanger and a wire hanger for garments I want to steam in the bathroom after they have wrinkled in my suitcase.

What amazing finds! I'd love the hangars by themselves. The addition of the story makes them fabulous. I'd love that honey jar on my table!
