Brenda Photo Challenge-Antiques!

Time for another Brenda's Photo Challenge! This one is all about antiques!


These vinegar and oil carafs (at least I think that's what they are) used to belong to my mom's mom. I love the pink and green glass. I would love to use them someday if I could only get them clean enough inside! 


This table belonged to my dad's mom. The top tier used to have leather in the middle but it got old and cracked and I had to remove it. 


This is not a really great picture of this antique fan. It actually still works but we don't use it. It's probably not very safe!  

 
This is a oil can and a level that my grandfather gave to Rich years ago.The oil can reminds me of the one they used in the Wizard of Oz!

Now off to see all of your antiques! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

How cool! You're correct - that fan probably isn't very safe!

You see they are not just antiques, they are memories. And such good ones. Maybe you could use a baby bottle washer, or brush to clean your oil and vinegar bottles and a little bit of bleach.

A fun selection,I like the two tiered table, I don't think I have ever seen one.

Great ones! I remember vaguely seeing bottles like those. I wonder if you could get them clean with straight vinegar; if you haven't already tried. LOVE the oil can!! :)

I love the pink and green bottles : ) Great selection of antiques you have there...the fan is interesting!

What a great assortment! I love old fans like that, even if they don't work. They just look funky and cool! And there's a trick to cleaning the inside of glass like that. Somewhere I read about using vinegar and rice to clean the inside of bottles. Perhaps you can google it!
