Vintage Friday – Dusty Ol’ Stuffy

Well everything I got out to show you today was dusty. First, I took pictures dust and all because I thought “it’s vintage so nobody is going to mind a little dust” Right? Wrong. When I started looking at the pictures all I could see was the dust.

I did clean up some of them and retook pictures but, it’s raining again today so… I don’t know what that has to do with anything except it makes me want to curl up with a good book. It sure doesn’t make me want to dust.

Once again I have a few things that belonged to my Grandmother King. I am amazed she had so much stuff because that lady kept her house spick and span.

I have a picture of her father taken in 1926 down in Orlando, Florida. He sent her the picture and a sweet little card. She would have been 20 years old in 1926.

Below is how Orlando would have looked in 1926. This is South Orange Ave. The picture shows some neon signs which evidently the first neon signs were imported from France in 1922

I never saw my Grandmother wear very much jewelry but, here is some costume stuff she had

She also had this little tiny ring. The setting is called a basket setting

Look at the little filigree hearts.

I don’t know who gave her this ring since I never saw it until she passed away

One more thing I want to show you today is this awesome piece of art created by my Aunt Marty.

You have to click on these pictures and make them bigger so you can see the awesome details of this piece.

This is made from rocks. She made it back in the 70’s. The colors still look pretty awesome today. It is only about 6 inches tall so that tells you those are little tiny rocks all individually painted and glued on the larger rocks.

Have a great weekend and if you can’t find anything else to do….go dust 🙂 Enjoy
