For this week we have a theme.. PHOTOGRAPHS! I love old photographs, I’ve always collected them over the years and tend to keep most. I feel a connection with them, especially the black and white ones.



Look at that proud kitty!



1960’s Parachuting Batman and Robin, so cool!



Love ship photos, wish I knew which ship this was.



This is a creepy desolate large photo of a needle factory. I liked the eerie look of this one.

2/14/15 Yard Sale Finds

This weekend there was an estate sale. The people running the estate sale post pictures for preview purposes online. I saw some old things and it looked like it could be a good one to attend. It ended up being a lot of fun and I got some great stuff. See below 🙂



Some great newspapers, I love old newspapers. A bunch of US flags and a few foreign ones. Vintage Barbies case with old Barbie dolls and clothing. Ww2 Military medals and some vintage parachute patches. 45 records and an old 35mm slide case. Oh and a few old LIFE mags. It was quite a haul.



Some of the late Mr. Morrison’s obituary: “A graduate of Ambler High School Class of 1943, He served in the US Army 101st Airborne division from 10-11-1943 to 1-3-1946. Tom was a member of the D-Day plus one as an artilleryman in the glider forces. He was then assigned to Operation Market Garden and the liberation of Holland and later in Belgium in the Battle of the Bulge. He was awarded the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal with 5 Bronze Stars and 1 Bronze Arrowhead. More recently, Tom was awarded the French Legion of Honor at the French Embassy in Washington, DC.  In 1963, Tom started Sport Parachuting and was one of the organizing members of the United Parachute Club in New Hanover, PA and served as President and Treasurer. Known as “The Colonel” He completed 9,782 jumps and made his final jump on July 4, 2008 at the annual Carnival and Fireworks at Wissahickon High School at the age of 84. He stated that some of his most memorable jumps were those that he made in Holland every four years since 1969 on the anniversary of the Liberation of the country; and the jump he made with the former President George H.W. Bush in 1999.”



This is a photo of him and his 321st Glider Artillery Battalion in Germany during WW2.

There were no estate sale this week worth going to but I won some cool things at auction! Check them out below 🙂

This is a 1970 Diving Helmet ice cooler. I love the look and the fact that its vintage. I have wanted one of these since I first saw one a few years ago.

This wooden box was a happy surprise for me as it came in a box lot I won at the auction. It was emptied out of whatever old meter thing was in there and just this awesomely beautiful wooden box was left. Perfect to sit on a shelf and use as a shadow box. I love the industrial look it has and the fact that the glass in uncracked and it has the cool white metal “frame” still inside the glass, I am having a love affair with this box clearly, lol.

I saw this small metal pilot bust at the auction and thought he had a cool look to him so I bid. No one else wanted him so I won 🙂

These 4 pages are part of a 1920’s scrapbook I won. I simply bid on it because of these car pages which I fell in love with for some reason. They are magazine cutouts and then whoever glued them inside the book painted the car names underneath. I like how the white pating kind of yellowed, that way you can tell these are old:) I was thinking about framing them and putting them up for sale. I think they would look cool hanging on a wall.
