This is a collection of some of my oddities, from around the house.

Isn’t this a fun mustard jar? I just love the colors on these labels!

I love to rescue everything! This looks like I found it in a burn pile but I found it in Oaksdale, Washington, (home of Mary Jane Butters flour mill) in a antique/junk store. The funkier the better….right?

Now how about the patina, paint and other yuckies on this scale?

My father had a lot of old wood tools when I was growing up, unfortunately, he sold them, some thirty years ago, never thinking (I guess) that his daughter might like them. I suppose he asked my three brothers but…. So I had to have this old wood drill, it reminds me of the one my father used.

I have collected grinders and bean slicers for many years. I love the red on this one!
