School Bus Finds


We were pickin' a place out in the country,
and the fella told me where some items were
"out by the bus". What bus I said?
"The one in the blackberries over there."
So sure enough, other side of the blackberries was an old school bus.

And yes, school buses are yellow,
but inside they are my fave yummy green.
My sweet fella worked 4 hours to get these parts out.
The small panels in the first two pics.

And the dashboard!
  look at all the fun gauges
.
and the perfectly chippy rusty green paint.

and he even got the emergency door off!! yummy green inside,
 and school bus yellow on the outside. 

and here is the seat and base it goes on,
complete with the slider part for moving forward and back.
and look what great shape it is in.

Now to figure out prices for all of it.

Thanks for visiting.
Be blessed

1960's? Haiwatha Bicycle

 SO FUN!!
Bike one:
I got these two old bicycles from a gal at a sale.
All the rust, and bright colors just spoke to my heart.

Love the shape of this chain guard.

and look at this old baby carrier on the back.
(I guess I should not say 'old' since we had one
 similar to it on the back of my bike in the 60's)

and, call me crazy, but I love rust.
so this seat is wonderful to me.

Bike two:
This is the Hiawatha girls bike we got.
perfectly chippy rusty white.

And on this side bright blue and red chain guard.
Not sure why it is in such great shape.
Maybe covered more than the rest of the bike.
  cannot fine any other info except the Hiawatha name to research it further.
Hoping one of you readers may know. =)


and, rusty seat, again. just love it.
and a fun 'seat' or 'rack' ? on the back.

Thanks for visiting.
If you have any info on either of these please let me know.
Would love to know what year they were, 50's, 60's?
and if they would be worth anything fixed up.

BOTH BIKES SOLD.

be blessed all.

New Nests

 Yes, I am making nests again,
but not ordinary nests.
These are succulent nests.

  Here is one in a little cabinet display at the shop.

  another one. each uniquely different.

 These are all sold, but I am making mroe.
local sales only due to being fragile for shipping.
(as in it would get dirt everywhere.) =)

Camera Buffs???

 hey you vintage camera buffs out there!

I bought this case and figured out it is for holding 12 rolls of film.
 Here it is open, and in the bottom is the long belt that went around it.
missing buckle.
It is 7x6x2"

Anyone know anything about it?
Trying to figure out selling price, history.

thanks
Barb
