I have been devouring everything I read from Goodwill Hoarding as of late. Not because I love the Goodwill as much as these ladies do…but because I’ve discovered I already have a few pieces of Pyrex in my cabinets.

I don’t know the age of these items, so far I have obtained them at estate sales… so I would assume these are older pieces.

For Parts…

For parts… that was what printed on my receipt at a local antique store when I purchased the Big Ben alarm clock shown below.

I understand that the glass is broken off the front of the clock and it probably no longer functions as an alarm clock. I wasn’t purchasing it to actually use though.

I purchased it for the nostalgia… I remember my grandmother winding and setting an alarm clock similar to this every night before going to bed. I never quite figured out how to actually use this type of clock and although it is far from perfect it will be proudly displayed in my bedroom as a nod to the past…

Although it doesn’t work and is far from perfect, it was totally worth the four dollar price tag.

I love repurposing things… I salvaged my old sofa legs to use on my imaginary pallet table… I say imaginary because I am still waiting on my brother to bring me some pallets so I can make my table.

Anyway, I have all these fab ideas in my head (and on Pinterest) however its incredibly easy to loose sight of what I want to create, the items I need to create them with, where I need to find said items, etc…

Hence the reason for this post… I will be creating a wish list of sorts to enable me to create all these wonderful things floating around in my head…
