Not Just For Buggies Anymore!


(sweet old mirror I picked up a couple of weeks ago)

If you look real closely you'll see a couple of lazy cats in the background!

It's been quite hot this week-end with temperatures in the 90's.

The weather man is saying 100 degrees tomorrow!

It's been so nice to have central air in our home!

(It won't be so nice when I get the bill, but until then I'll enjoy it.)

It was one of those splurges that we did years ago when we were both working. . (Glad we did it!)


Old buggy wheels, I was fortunate to come across quite a few of these last week-end.

I love the rustiness about them.


The old caps on them!

The fact that they're old!

So many uses for them.

Besides displaying old postcards and photos on, I also think they would be a great way to hang curtains!

I'm sure you could come up with many other uses too!


I'm so glad for people who save things.

It just makes this part of the adventure so much fun!

I hope you found some great treasures this week-end!

Hi Debbie,
It's been hot here, too. Same as you... I'm loving my air conditioning (but not when I get the bill~ LOL)!
Love the old buggy wheels and your ideas on how to use them... beautiful and creative! Now you're going to have me on the hunt for these! ;o)
Have a good evening,
~ Jo :)

Debbie I love your wheels!!! I know you will come up with several more uses for them in the future too. I love it too when you find things that most people would have discarded long ago. Thank goodness for hoarders...I worship the ground they walk on...
hugs to you...

Hi Debbie,

I wish I had central air. We just have air conditioners in the windows, but thank God for them. It has been an awful summer here in central NJ. Hardly no rain, and so humid and hot. Love these wheels. I love how you put the vintage pictures on them. Very clever.
