Relic

Old-fashioned Weighing Scales | www.myfoododyssey.com

After several months of rows and hard graft, our house renovations are almost complete. Once we’re safely installed I plan to bring you a series of before-and-after posts explaining the changes we’ve made. To whet your appetite I thought I’d share a few of the relics we found in the house when we first bought it. They don’t feature in the new house just yet, but I might restore them over time and use them as decorative pieces.

    • Yeh, that one definitely has potential, maybe with new shades or just bare bulbs. We’ll see!

  2. You never know, you may need a spare bath tub one day 😉

    I’ve got a pigsty right here… I should hoover. Yours may be re-purposed to serve as Beelzebub’s holding cell while you’re on hen house duties.

    • Why didn’t I think of that! I might actually build a similar containment device in the hen run!
      I actually love the bath tub – I’d love to restore it. People use saunas a lot here – it would make a great plunge pool beside a sauna!

      • You could strap him up… hmmm… not boxers, far too roomy… a tight thong should do it. Latex! Though some are allergic to that, I’ve heard.

  3. oh, when I was just a wee one I used to sneak into the loft of my grandma’s house. There was a crazy collection of old stuff over there, and I enjoyed myself going through things I did not even know the purpose of. The best thing huge and quite ancient wooden looms, which even in its disassembled state impressed me a lot with its size. I think it could have taken a full room’s space when it was actually used

    • Yeh, it was great fun going through the attic, Asta. The previous owner was 94 so there was all kinds of weird and wonderful stuff!
