Hugh’s Weekly Challenge…Vintage

Well in response to Hugh’s ” Vintage ” Challenge the first thing that springs to mind is me! I am clocking up the years…lol.  Hugh’s photos are here so  Please Click Here.

I remember the phone locks very well as my kids had no problem still using it…not so when the phone company’s introduced codes….That stopped the little buggers ( for a while)

I know what ….. I have a mincer which belonged to my dads mum and has been around the world with me…it is still in use when I can find a surface to which I can attach it to, many work tops are now so thick… but my kitchen work station is ideal, also I have 2 solid silver tablespoons which belonged to her which I constantly use.


Well now I am on a roll this little brass Scotty dog door knocker belonged to my dads mum and is of an indeterminate age which I can only guess at being at least 50 plus years..


I remember him being on my nans front door and always admired him. Thank you  Hugh for this challenge as it has bought back some lovely memories for me.

    That’s lovely to hear, Carol. I remember those mincers, as my parents also owned one, but it’s now long gone. I love the door knocker. How on earth did you come to get it off the front door? I’m sure it would be a collectors item.

      I honesty can’t remember Hugh I think my dad must have taken it off the door for me as I was quite young when my nan passed away….It was just that I had always loved it…I have some very tiny eye glasses as well but as I had just moved I can’t remember where they are..somewhere safe I think in my writing desk.
