I LIKE old things!

"Do not resent growing old . . . many are denied that pleasure." ~ Unknown
In this day and age, we have become a throw away society. I love old things, perhaps that is because I am reaching those higher numbers myself! So, when I come across some finds, I think it is great!!
Here are just a few!
This antique parlor lamp is just the greatest! Beautiful jade and such simple elegance!
You can find this at RoundPrairie2's!
Gorgeous is just one word to describe this beauty! The silver filigree on this brooch is beautiful! Ida2002 has a lot of beautiful things to offer!

I particularily love this Antique Hamilton Open Faced pocket watch offered by 1967P4!

I love these old stoves! This one is a 1920 Regent Gas Stove ~ offered by NYMinuteMan! They have some awesome restaurant items and other vintage pieces!

Or how about this GORGEOUS Tiffany Coffee Creamer and Sugar set from 1890! And check out other items at Smoxury!

And this is just a wonderful find! From 1909Ventillo, this is a beautiful 1930's or newer Wedding Ring Quilt!! It is a beautifully hand sewn quilt with bright colors and has been dry cleaned! Just a fabulous buy!

Seasons and Holidays

This great blog was done by Dusty Corners and at the bottom it says Chateycathey...I just posted it for her...she is the author.

As the holidays are fast approaching, the seasons changing, shoppers and sellers are gearing up for fun festivities.

What is your favorite holiday? My first favorite is Christmas as it has so many fond memories for me, from my earliest childhood years to most recent before my mother passed away. The celebration of Christmas is usually joyous, happy, and sharing

My second favorite holiday is Halloween. This is when you can have fun decorating your home inside and out, create make believe scenarios that can be whimsical or macabre. For years I decorated outside my home with life size witches and scarecrows, adding special lighting to enhance the mood of the scene after the sun set. One year we had lots of children roaming the neighborhood in search for the treats that await them at each door that opened. Much to my delight, my life size witch scared the littlest goblins as they walked by her to and from my door. She did look realistic!

Halloween also brings out the interest in dead things, like bones and skulls. I found this book most interesting on the subject:

The Book of Skulls

Synopsis: The skull is one of the most recognizable symbols of today’s contemporary visual culture. Since its 1970s renaissance in the iconic album designs of bands such as the Grateful Dead, the skull has found its way into the visual vocabulary of urban life, adorning T-Shirts, badges and rock memorabilia as the ultimate symbol of anarchy and rebellion. Repurposed and recast by artists, illustrators and designers, it has become one of the most iconic cultural symbols of our time. In response to this cultural phenomenon, The Book of Skulls presents a cool visual guide to the skull, charting its rebirth through music and street fashion to become today’s ultimate anti-establishment icon. From Black Sabbath to Cypress Hill, skater punk graffiti to Gothic tattoos, from high-couture to Hello Kitty and Dali to Damien Hirst, this book is the ultimate collection of cool and iconic skull motifs. Drawing together artwork from music, fashion, street art and graphic design The Book of Skulls is a celebration of one of today’s most iconic cultural symbols.

At online, we are celebrating, too! You will find a variety of treats and treasures that are sure to please your shopping palate!






There are lots more goodies to find at! Join us throughout the holidays and all year long!

Please visit my store and see what you can’t live without  at Dusty Corners Place!

You Can Support Your Favorite Charity Online Without Donating Money!

Most of us want to do good deeds, but many of us can't afford to donate money, no matter how worthy the cause. Here are some ways you can help your favorite charity without a cash donation.

  1. Visit the charity website and look for the social media buttons -- Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. Be sure you follow, like, or whatever action is required to participate, and also be sure to add a personal comment whenever possible. Spend some time on their social media sites and re-tweet, share, or join in on the topics that seem most important or timely. This type of involvement is huge for any organization and can't be overstated. If you discover that the charity is NOT on one of your favorite social media sites, you can still promote them on your own, by sharing a link to their site.

  2. Go back to the charity website and look for their promotions or fundraisers. Again, many times it's just your participation that matters. For example, The Animal Rescue Site wants you to click every day to donate free pet food. It costs nothing but a few seconds of your time to help support this project.

  3. Blog about your favorite charity, create a Facebook page for it, or promote it on 3rd party sites. An example is JustCoz. Here you can donate a tweet a day for your favorite charity (and add your own if you control their Twitter account).

  4. Do you sell online? has a whole section for charity listings called OLA Cares.

  5.  Are you a writer? Squidoo generates revenue through page views, and you can choose a charity to receive your share of those revenues. Write a "lens" about your favorite cause, then choose to donate your share to that organization.

  6. Have a little spare time? Here are the results of a Google search for "your favorite charity." Look how many places you can go to promote your cause, FREE!
Now I'm going to take my own advice and promote my favorite charity, the Love Your Pet Expo Sanctuary for Special Needs Animals. If you're in search of a worthy cause to practice on, please try this one.
