So this week I found some fun and interesting things.
These vintage plastic light reflectors really take me back to my Christmas childhood. I love all the bright colours.
It’s a vintage battery operated railroad lantern light.
The lights are on the bottom, and I just have to figure out how the battery chamber opens… if it opens. It could be rusted shut.
I’m really hoping the lights work because I think this would make an awesome lighted wind chime for an outdoor covered patio or porch. I’m now on the hunt for cool things to hang from it, so this project will be done who knows when.
Any suggestions for wind chime hanging thingies?
I have a thing for clocks and star bursts, so this vintage Ingraham clock is absolutely perfect.
And it works! That’s always a plus.
And I found something to help me organize my craft room … this awesome vintage fold-up Rolykit storage caddy. It holds so many bits and bobs.
You’re supposed to be able to open and close it without anything spilling over or out.
But I’m playing it safe and keeping almost everything beyond the first section in little baggies… just so I don’t have a nightmare mess on my hands one day.
It’s supposed to not happen, but believe me when I say that I can make the unhappenable (is that even a word?) happen.
I haven’t filled it completely yet. I have more stuff, just haven’t had the time.
This caddy stretches out to a phenomenal 4′ x 11″ of storage space.
And then it folds up to sit just 8″ high on my craft desk. It’s like magic!
This caddy is not getting a makeover, but I just had to show it to you.
They share the same rose pattern, but not the same edging so I doubt they started out as a set. I may split them up… I haven’t decided yet.
See you on Monday with the project that I chose from this post.
Have a great weekend!
