Old Cars and Treasures

Good Evening...
I took some pictures of some old 
cars in Texas, on the way
back home.....My hubby said these 
are Metropolitans...They remind me 
of the old Nash Rambler,

 that my sister had, once...They
are out in a field with several horses.
You never know what you will find in 

I have a few things to show you, that 
I got, recently...

I bought this huge rolling pin in an 
antique mall on the way back, on 
Monday.  I put a regular sized one 
with it, so you can see just how big it 
is!  If you read my last post, you know
that my hubby wanted to know if I 
was going to use it on him!

I found this old ammo box at the flea
market....You know I am collecting old
boxes ;)

I got the cornucopia at GW and I got the 
gingerbread doll at the same flea
market, that I got the box at, but a few
weeks ago.  I have more things, but I 
forgot to include them in the pictures.

Be watching for some make overs, I have
several things that I want to get painted. It 
looks like it is going to be nice, tomorrow,
so I better get at it!  Also, be watching for
a give away!  I haven't decided what it will 
be, yet.....hmmmm...It might be a 
combination of things, cloth, wood, 
Christmas or Winter, 
handmade, or made over....But, I 
will be showing you, in the next couple 
weeks and telling you how you can win!  
Maybe, we will play Bingo...Maybe, I will 
wait until I get to 200 followers, I am 
getting close!

Until next time...

  2. love them old cars..they are so cute and compact..they have them at our 4th of july parades here..love the rolling pins..can't wait to see what you are up to..haven't heard from you in a while..hope all is well.;)

  3. Hey Karen, my sister's first car was a Rambler, gosh that was a long time ago.8-) You are right about Texas......mine and Hubby's first car, a 1967 Galaxy, sits in a sheep lot in back of the house. Along with other old farm pick-ups. Something about farmers not being able to throw anything away. 8-)
    I love the rolling pin and old box, I collect both of those things too.

  4. My husband is a "car guy" so when I showed him your photo I had to hear him gush a whole lot of car stuff...I love my goofy car guy.I don't know a blessed thing about cars.I've never even had a driver's license. But your blog entry provided us with a "moment"! :)

    You find the best stuff...makeovers,can't wait to see what you come up with!

  5. That is an awesome picture of the cars and horses! Seriously, I love that! Are you sure that wasn't in OK? Haha, looks like something you would see here.

    That is a huge rolling pin! I would love to find one that size. Love that ammo box too, anything wooden I love... just like you. =]
