I love the bird house with its roof covered in copper sheeting (which, unfortunately, you are unable to see from this angle). When a friend gave it to me, I couldn't bear to put it outdoors in the weather. The cheery little bird sitting next to it belonged to my mom.
The dust on the mantel is not vintage, but probably will be by the time I get around to dusting that board! The cheese crock was given to me by my father-in-law many years ago, and the hand auger had belonged to my dad. For some reason, I was always fascinated by that thing, and he gave it to me, along with the bits that fit it. I keep them in an old Army ammo box. I don't remember where I got the pulley wheel, but it's been sitting around here for a long time.
In the first photo of this post, you'll see a sliver of the vintage Buckeye Root Beer jug and mugs which came from my great grandpa's restaurant about a hundred years ago.
Okay, I'll go dust the mantel now.
