I love tiny little nick-knacks (as mentioned before!), and Joe’s parents’ house has their fair share. So does ours actually, but I just don’t have photos yet. One of my dreams (goals?) is to open a store for all of the small antique things that are so cute and have such interesting stories. Here are a few detail shots of the ones Joe grew up with:
These are old medicine and alcohol bottles. One is a cure for for “hysterical women”, and the alcohol ones were found in the ground on Joe’s property. His mom said they were near the fenceposts, as I guess the guys working in the fields would lean against the fence whilst drinking whisky.
I don’t think the teapot is part of the elephant set, but it goes so well!
This was Joe’s dad’s baby bowl. I had a bunnykins one, and so did Joe!
Elephants on parade
A shadow box! Joe’s dad built this one!
My favourite section. The mouse is a candle snuffer. Cute!
There are so many more little amazing bits in this house, I love them all. Some time I’ll show you the little things I’ve collected!
