Just the right amount of weathering on this beauty! She has two lift out trays
to hold your d├ęcor or tools if you so desire. You can find this in my booth Guidone & Co.
at the Odana Antiques Center in Madison WI
Are you a baby photographer? This hanging scale will hold up to
20lbs of newborn or a sack of potatoes, a plant, eggs, whatever you choose!
She has a very deep pan that will cuddle anything you decide for it's use.


This cupboard has over 20" wide boards with mortise & tenion construction.
It's very unusual in it's style, the top having shelving behind the door.
With one door missing, you can still display your treasures or use they way I have
by showing off your vintage suitcases for extra storage.

This little country Victorian cabinet is carrying many scratches & dings
from her history, yet holds her original stenciling! She is still
very useful and with her drawer and 2 shelves she would be
a sweet little addition to your home.
If you couldn't live with her scratches, you could always give
her some paint or refinish her.
I would use her the way she is, full of charm!

the most beautiful roses for me from my son Cale and daughter in law Caitlin!
Oh my, santa was gooood to all of us, shared by family!

Xmas 2013

3 days past 2013 Christmas, have to show some of my treasured tree ornaments of course!
The most fragile vintage is this clip on blown glass bird, she perches with her little crown.
unbelievable that she has survived since the 1900's!


The papier mache santas have found a spot in my hutch in the
living room, every year I have set them up in different areas of the house,
now this is where they will always be displayed. They have
many bottle brush trees to nestle in as well.
