stash: vintage canning jars…….

A few of you may have followed our exploits over the last several years over at Hoarding Woes & You. There, I chronicled our cleanup of my Mom’s and Aunt’s massive hoards. Not long ago, we discovered a long concealed (forgotten) stash of canning jars beneath our (my Aunt’s) home that appear to have been deposited there in the 1960’s along with stashes of water, canned foods, fuel etc. With the assistance of  a stalwart friend (Magpie Ethel) we removed hundreds of the canning jars of a dozen shapes and sizes. We don’t ‘can’. Now we have this large collection to sort, assess value and hopefully sell. Remember if you stash your survival supplies beneath your house in a dark crawl space tell someone you trust. Otherwise someone else will have the surprise 60+ years later of discovering the cache.

Vintage: Elephant Car Wash Sign

A Rancho Mirage (California) landmark since 1966, I had wanted to shoot this for several years, at night. Finally, the opportunity presented itself. I took some at a distance (my wife’s favorite) and some up close and beneath.

Curious Photograph

I was visiting the train station (Union Station) in Portland, Oregon. I noticed a large photo on the wall and particularly the car seemingly driving across the image with a blur suggesting motion, but no driver behind the wheel. Hmm?

beauty: vintage glass

an old wrought iron chandelier, outside for so many years. in the dirt, the tall grass, stacked amongst the forgotten, the ignored stuff of a hoarder. Not a bit of renewal, of touching up. I pulled it from the weeds, hung it from a ladder’s rung. Later, I snapped a shot of the glass bauble (same day I did the roses from the rear images). Despite all the scars, in its own way it is still beautiful
