There's going to be a lot of talk here on the big basement clearout until the contractors arrive so bear with me. As I open forgotten boxes and sort the contents I'm always impressed when I see a collection happening. Like my wood bowls, I appear to be drawn to certain items when I'm at thrift stores. It shouldn't surprise me then that I found I have this beautiful collection of vintage white celluloid brooches.
Thanks to all who chimed in on my last post! The mystery items were quickly identified as grooved butter paddles and a sixth finger stiletto. You guys are so smart. And I love Carolyn's idea about actually using the butter paddles in my preschool for their intended purpose.
