Photo Savenger Hunt


For for today is "OLD FASHIONED"


These are some and I mean just some of the antiques and OLD FASHIONED things that I have been given over the years from grandmothers, great grandmothers, mothers and other relatives. If anyone is interested in these things and know the price that they would be worth I am willing to sell. Honestly!! Jut let me know.
Here is a closer look at my old china dolls. I really have NO IDEA how old they are. They have some of the original clothing on them and as you can see it is just hanging on!! I cannot remember where they came from either.

Happy anniversary! Grams sent me. There's a piece of my heart in Georgia, since my son lives in Columbus with my youngest grandchild.

God bless you and give you many more.

(going on 42 years for me)

I think I'm one of the ONLY people out on the web that did NOT think that Old Fashioned meant "antique"... I had a totally different take on this theme today.... Those are cool antiques! I have many too... though I'm in the process of trying to get rid of most of them. I need to de-clutter sO badly!!! LOL! Hope you and Mike had a sweet evening last night!

Those are interesting pieces you have there especially the china dolls. Thanks for sharing.

I know the red picture is worth at least $150 if not more. The blue one Im not sure but maybe along the line of $75. The old pan and iron are about $$25- 50. But the china dolls are upwards to $200 or more. These are just rough estimates and yo would be wise to go to an antique store and ask them for sure before selling. Or you could email me and I could ask my brother wh is in the business. Love the pic thanks for sharing

Nice post for today's photo hunt, Sandy. Is that one thing an omlet skillet? And that old iron that you used to have to heat on the stove if my memory serves me correctly. Those old dolls are probably worth some money for sure.

Well why don't you ask Marilyn about the pitcher the pink one, she told me one time it was worth a lot and you can hardly find them anyplace. I bet she could tell you about some of those things. That little iron has to be very old as you are what_____.
Think that is how you learned to iron when you were little if i remember. Good luck hope you can get some good prices for those, know they are all very old. Have fun. love mother

Maggie Ann said...

That looks like a Homer Laughlin pitcher? Treasures from the past, and treasures for the future...=). Thanks for coming by & leaving me a comment. Friends like you make the day brighter.

Awww...you've got so many wonderful things from your family's history. Loved the little dolls...I don't remember ever seeing them before. Miss you.

Linda said...

I just got home from the Y where I did 45 minutes of cardio. Whew, I'm tired.

I love that iron. Mom had one and I don't know what ever happened to it.

Sure hope your Dad pulls through!! I will certainly keep him in my prayers. Are you going anywhere close to Kinmundy? Try to keep us posted on your Dad and have a safe trip.

Betty said...

Sandy, I've been missing you the last two or three days. I hope everything with you.

I wrote yesterday about how Ed and I met. I hope you can drop by and read my love story. I got the idea from you when you wrote about how you and your hubby met.

Barbara said...

This is the first time I've been to your blog. Came from Grams via your comment.

Congratulations on 44 years! My husband and I will be married 44 years on July 6th. He was 22 and I was 21, so I'm a little older. AND, we are from the South as well - Alabama.
