I know I said in another thread that I would post some pictures of our kitchen collectibles, so here it is. The pics aren't the best; I took them with my wife's little snapshot camera rather than the DSLR, but you get the idea. First up is our Hoosier cabinet, and the tall, narrow little cabinet that I rescued off the heap, and we painted it cream and green to match the kitchen utensils of the 30's. Note the canisters on top of it- they are 30's vintage as well.
Next is a very early pie safe with tin panels. The dolls were my mother's in the 1930's- Mortimer Snerd and Fanny Brice.
Here's our kitchen table, which we hauled from Maine on the roof of a Toyota Corolla some 30 years ago. Under countless coats of paint, it turned out to be walnut! It can open up to 9 FEET of leaves.
Here's a little jelly cupboard with screening instead of tin panels.
You may have noticed a few clocks; I collect them, and have about 40 in all. This is the flagship, a Luman Watson, c 1790. It has all wooden gears, and keeps surprisingly good time, although I don't run it anymore, for fear of wearing it out. Someday I may put a newer movement in it, and put the original in a display case or something. The middle finial is missing, as it won't quite fit under our 8' ceilings. I have it put away for our next house, which will have taller ceilings!
I have lots more stuff; you can see why it will be hard to down-size! Thanks for looking at our old 'junk'!
