    all sorts of things mostly related to the 40s and 50s or primitives.
    Here are a few of my collections I have a lot of stuff stored! I rotate stuff when I get tired of looking at this then I regroup and get out other collections. I collect Reindeer and snowmen and angels for Christmas and other holidays I also collect certain things but here is what I have out now.

    This is part of the wall boxes the way they were a few months ago.

    I collect Angels, Cobalt blue glass, roosters and it seems a lot of junk! The Angels are mostly in my sewing room with my gusrdian angels watching over the two children on the bridge are in the living room. The roosters stay in the kitchen and cobalt blue glass is in nearly every room. I collect antique furniture when I find something I can afford.

    I love all of your collectibles!!!! I got a chuckle out of the drop seat long johns too :lol: :lol: :lol: I quit collecting a while back, I would start a collection and well meaning family and friends wanted to add to them. Let's just say most of the time it was not what I originally had in mind :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Just a few more and I'm done! I promise! This is my kitchen - I collect things related to the 40s and50s so I had this idea that I wanted to paint my kitchen 50's red. I figured my husband Glen would say no way! but my dear hubby rarely stands in my way of doing what I want and he usually helps me so he said that might look interesting and we painted it red! It does shock people when they see it for the first time.

    Most of my granite ware and my rolling pins in the bucket at the end of the shelf.

    I made the bakers rack with the candy jars on it from 2x4s and plywood all by myself with some coaching from my hubby. I collect jars and these candy jars are canisters for flour sugar pancake flour cereal jello mixes and more

    My uncle was going to burn this cabinet and my mom saved it. When she decided she was done with it she gave it to me and we hung it on the wall above my freezer

    Love your collections and how you showcase them. I don't have a decorator bone in my body. Eating a meal at your house would be like eating at Cracker Barell my favorite place to eat!

    I noticed the viewmasters! I collected viewmaster reels for a long time until everyone on Ebay decided they were hard to find and raised the price so much it wasn't fun anymore. I have a few old Singer products in my sewing room but I don't collect any one theme.

    My sink! It is an old farmhouse table. My cousin cut the hole and installed the sink.(he thought I was crazy!) and I painted it and did the brick work.

    All I can say is, "WOW". How do you dust it all? I can identify with a lot of the things you have. Does that make me an antique ??? :lol:

    I remember cooking on a stove like yours at one time. And then we got a new one, a Roper I believe. My grandmother had a coal stove. I remember sitting the iron on it to get it hot so she could iron. And the wooden ironing board - I inherited that and used it for years. AHHH, memory lane.
