Some More Finds For Upcoming Scott Show

I fell in love with this old Belber Steamer Trunk, it has some issues (for one thing the musky smell) but it is so cool. Does anyone know what to do about that? Can you imagine traveling with something like that, it weighs about 70lbs. Boarding a large ship like the Titanic. It has all the original wooden hanger. That one drawer that has the ball thingy on the back, what it that for? Things sure come a long way haven't they....











Do you love theses dresses??


Just really liked this box, I have a thing for old boxes?


Italian Florentine hand painted pieces.


Couple of pretty french looking light fixtures. They look really pretty lit.



Pretty old frame, do you think I should paint it or leave it as it is?





Great old jars and tin. That is s Seth Thomas clock, doesn't work but it looks cool.




This is a lovely french fixture, it would look great hanging over an island or bar.




This is a very old majolica pitcher, I love the colors in it. And that brass thing is a bell from an old hotel, very cool, works, and its loud.






Not really sure what that piece is that looks like a square guitar, anyone know? I thought it was cool, and it sounds good.

But the small box with the dogs on it is a very old music box.. It is so cute, and it works, love it.




I just love old suitcases, they were so sophisticated looking back then. They were all lined with pretty colored silky like material. Now all you see at airports are black suitcases, and they all look the same. You can wait at baggage claim forever trying to pick out your suitcase.

Suitcases are great props for displays in shops. They look great stacked in bedrooms, or they make a great table, put a piece of glass on top.

Some great finds. Fun dresses too.
Maybe some lavender sprayed in and then put some sachets in for a few weeks to get rid of the smell.

♥♥♥ LUV the dresses!!! Thanks for becoming my 30th follower! I will join you too. I hear that charcoal (the type used in fishtank filters) will take the smell out of your trunk if you leave it in there for a while in a nylon stocking. Maybe your musical instrument is a zither (or zyther)?

I can't wait to see you guys next weekend. Will you be in the same spot? I LOVE the suitcases. I cannot remember what the instrument is called, but we had one growing up and LOVED it. We used to put sheet music underneath and play. My mom will know what it's called...
