Glass marbles, porcelain knob.
Dog tag from 1917.
This die is handcarved and unfinished. It feels like bone.
I find a fair amount of jewelry especially unmatched earrings and pins.
Brooches and pins.
I think this stick pin is celluloid.
The clasp on this bracelet is lovely.
This Coolidge and Dawes promotional thimble is circa 1924 and I use it.
It is bent just right and is the only thimble that fits me well.
I'm not sure what I'll do with these treasures. Maybe someday I'll work them all into a piece, or perhaps I'll just keep them and soak up their history. What would you do with them?
Un an unrelated note, my toilet paper planter tutorial was on the EcoEtsy blog yesterday. I'd love it if you'd stop by and check it out if you get a chance.
