Dusty Little Treasures

("Hey that title could be for this blog", I say as I dust off my Blogger dashboard.)

I have been digging in the basement again. Here's what I found:

Old jewelry and a cookie cutter!

A meat chart! A "Good Things to Eat" recipe book!
Part of a bake chart, some old Kodachrome film and 8mm video, and some weird little piece of plastic shaped like a monkey I think.

Reliable Recipes! 10cent birthday candles, and Monkey Grip.

And then I found Prince Albert. In a can!

The best part is that I also found an old kitchen island- which is awesome because I need more storage space in my little kitchen! I'll show that to you if I ever get it upstairs.

Sorry for letting my blog get so dusty and lonely. My life seems to be on a schedule of Violet-school-eat-study-play with Violet-study some more-play on Facebook longer than I should-sleep.

I was just thinking of you.
That is so cool. I want to go through your basement (Hope that doesn't sound weird, um, whatever...). You have some neat stuff. I hope you are all doing well. Nice to see you again.

Well let him out!!

I love old stuff like this! You must have a righteous basement to find all this.

Jeremy's grandmother (bless her soul) lived here for decades and she was a serious pack rat. Like, she had receipts for sundry items that were decades older than I am! Seriously. We have a full basement and I mean that in both ways. Every time I go digging down there I found all sorts of cool little treasures like this. I can't wait to clean up that old storage for the kitchen!

PS- I wonder if there is a way to get that old Kodachrome film developed still. I wonder what is on that film!

i was worried about you.and how did you not know that you had an island in ur basement? how long has it been since you looked at that stuff. thats crazy.

Hahaha. Well, most of this stuff was here when we moved in. It took forever just to get the living space cleared, let alone the huge basement. His grandma lived here for a LONG time and she kept everything. I'm glad b/c I love looking through old stuff like this.

Lois and I appreciate the comments you left. It is really sad and upsetting to lose a loved one like this.
