Bits from my Kitchen

A bit random really and I could have done a post about each piece, but you know what it's like...so I thought I would do a collective post.
Firstly a 1960s measurement converter. I love this, it was pence at a CB and it really helps me convert when baking old recipes. It needs to be put up on the wall - another job another time.
A newie! Bought recently from Poundland, lovely blackboard, somebody's trying their luck! More newies! The tins were 50p each!!! And who could resist the mugs for £1....sometimes the new fits nicely with the old doesn't it? OK, so lots of this is new stuff actually. The board is magnetic, but used mostly for my keys (check out one of the only CK things I own!) Pin-board! Not that you can see the board for bills and party invites - children's unfortunately. And now a favourite. I paid quite a bit for this on Ebay and I really need to get it up on the wall. Not sure of the age, but it is a clothes line! The rope pulls from the front and when you're finished you reel it in. It came with lots of dear little pegs. I do wonder what age this is? Finally, my mother-in-law gave me this floor sweeper, I believe it was her great aunts, so lets just say, it's early 1900s. And......most importantly it works!
Hope you all had a good weekend?

  3. You've been on a roll with your lovely finds. Love the washing line thingy, sure they used the same on Darling Buds once. My eye was really caught by your sherbety china, been looking for years for some of my own. It looks gorgeous next to the spots and dots.

  13. Whoa! A vintage floor sweeper? That’s awesome! Actually, it’s my first time to see an old floor sweeper because, nowadays, almost all cleaning equipment are modern and use electricity to work. And it’s pretty amazing that it is still working. You got to keep that. That can be a good collectible vintage item. #German Zollinger
