Car collection for sale

Ugh, this is what we’re dealing with. This is only the first display case. There is a second one that’s half full, but this main one has a bottom storage area that we only thought about opening the other day. Guess what, kids?! Yup! More stuff to sort through.

I need a drink. Anyone else need a drink looking at this photo?

Vintage Finds 8 & 9

Ahh, it’s been another long week of cleaning out my in-laws’ house. I found a few things, but mostly I found stuff to throw out that amazed me in their scope. See what I mean ahead…

Again, a double dose for you all since I have been too busy this week to do small daily posts.

My MIL has jars upon jars of spiced beets she canned, like, maybe 25 years ago, but they have since gone off, so I ended up opening all of the jars, draining the liquid and dumping the beets into recycle bags for trash day last week. Our green bin was almost too heavy for me to roll down a sloped driveway. Almost! (I may have dragged the bin a bit here and there.) I forget how many bags I ended up with, but I’d guess seven, and each one weighing about five pounds each. Oy.

These are the jars (and some plastic pop bottles I drained at the same time) that I emptied from my MIL’s cold cellar that day. I didn’t count how many jars there were, but if I had to guess, I’d say we recycled 36 jars last week, and this week there are another 36 + 6 + 12. Most of them were baby food jars she used for her boysenberry jams which none of us like so out it went along with the beets.

This is a standard laundry tub, filled to the brim with empty canning jars.

Raise your hands if you remember these canisters? I do. My aunt had them in her kitchen at her farm when I was just starting my teen years. Hers were, however, the typical avocado & olive colour scheme that was so popular in the mid to late 1970s. And how much do you love the Dymo tape label??

I love the date on these boxes, but sadly they weren’t even the oldest thing in the basement pantry cabinets!

I don’t remember a Chez “c-wing” when I first started at the college, so I have no frame of reference for this. The date on this receipt is 85/09/10. Julie? Mary-Lou? Pam? Who worked there and what did they sell other than the sweater my SIL bought?

This is for Julie. I know this was the cassette tape set of three you were secretly looking for over at the house last weekend. Don’t lie! LOL

Vintage Finds #7

What a long week spent at the house decluttering, sorting and packing stuff up! Here are a few of the neat things I found at the house this week.

Who is this skinny boy?? I’ve never met him. Do you recognize the ladies? I never met them.

Doesn’t the Grecian lady look thrilled to be included in this photo? LOL The rest of the ladies were before my time.

I also have never met this skinny man! I wonder what he looks like now. 😀

Santa, and her elf, Luke.

I’ve heard the stories of Gloria wearing this but I have yet to see any pictures. I’ll keep looking.

Not sure when the MIL bought this, but it looks very high end and expensive. I’m not into these hand blenders. Guess we’ll have to find it a new home. BTW, it was never used.

Books? I got yer books. Right here! Dear god, this is a lot of books to find new homes for. Oy.
