100th Blog ......Weekend Finds

I am posting my 100th blog today and I can't believe it has gone so's only been 6 months since I sat down to try and work out how it all worked.
Its been a whirlwind shopping day today ...op-shops, second-hand shops, and a Bed,Bath and Table Sale

I am a sucker for books with old bookplates and this old book was presented to the Dux of 1937
at St Catherines School...I couldn't resist it for $2

I love this old engraving  for $15...its very long in size

2 pieces from a half price sale at Bed Bath Table

A couple more books on flea market decorating to add to my growing collection

Friday Find

I walked up to the Salvo's on my usual Friday morning trip and spied this grotty old cutlery box in the corner. I could tell straight away it was a very old oak box, and after checking the flatware inside I knew it was pre 1900 . I have a thing about old cutlery , and have a little collection to add it to. What a pity the brass crest is missing, and the box cracked as this Sheffield silverware was only made between 1880-1911

I can add it to the beautiful pearl handled antique knives I found at Anglicare for $1 each

and a 1930 fish set
