Sunny’s dad started Eddy Plumbing & Heating in the mid-50’s. Before that he and a partner were in business together sanding hardwood floors. (Funny how things have come full circle—hardwood, area rugs, wall-to-wall and back to beautiful hardwood.)
I enjoy collecting old advertising especially when it is local or family-related, because it tells a story. The “Sunny” tin isn’t old. I just like it because that’s the way my husband spells his name.
Sunny’s grandfather was the insurance salesman here in town. Pretty cool to have your own engraved leather scissors case! The wire paper basket was a thrifting find.
Another thrifting find, this old lamp had seen better days. Rather than rewiring it, I decided to cut off the cord and just use it for decorating purposes.
Check out the three-digit phone number on this thermometer! I’m picturing a lady at the switchboard chewing bubble gum and listening in on party-line conversations!
Have a great day!
I’m also participating here with a great recipe!
AND…there is something really neat Angie is giving away on her blog.
