It was a meager picking week/weekend but here's the one thing I found last Saturday
So here's what kept me chained to the sweat shop last weekend - can you see what it is???
After using an old paint brush to apply THE most harsh varnish remover to all the pieces & wiping them all down with 000 steel wool, then using the little hand buffer for several days on all pieces (I'm exhausted re-telling this!), this is where I'm at
So my friends, I'm still slaving away at it & I have to go buy a little dremmel tool with tinier buffing pads to get into the small areas, but I think it will be FANNNTABULOUS when it's done. It BETTER be doggonit! In fact after a fairly exhaustive internet search I finally found one similar selling to the tune of SIXTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS! Holey Moley! I won't be selling this one for such a price but it's good to know that I KNEW a "buried treasure" (& it did look like it'd been buried for 60 years!) when I see one. Oh, and the two glass pieces are a beautiful oval beveled. When I finally get it all done I'll bring it back to show you & preen my feathers again. In the meantime......give me the courage to go on Lord!
Here we are at the weekend again (where on earth did the week go?!) & I wish you all the very bestest treasure hunting. Hope y'all find a treasure like I did - WITHOUT all the work!
