Sombreuil Climbing Rose 1850

Monday, May 18, 2015


Like many of you, we've been "junkin'" since first moving into a Craftsman duplex in college.  Mothers went antiquing, they could afford it.  We college students dug around at the Good Will and Salvation Army stores and the rare "junk" store.  We have fond memories and any number of treasures, like a toaster from the 40's,  but the current favorite, Sweetest Salvage, is this working wind mill.  

This dear treasure came from the March Sweet Salvage tour.  That, when this wind mill was set up and untethered, it actually starting spinning in the wind, elicited squeals of delight!  In the first photo you can almost see it whirling.

A small reminder of roots in the midwest, growing up in the city but making many treks to the country.  Now if we could just dig a well, hook up a pump

In the meantime we're dreaming of next month's tour of Sweet Salvage.  http://sweetsalvage.net 
If you love to have items with a past, with a history be sure to set aside time May 21-24 to root around for your own treasures.
They are open the third weekend of each month:  Thursday 10-9 and Friday, Saturday, Sunday 10-6
And the bonus is that they have some of the best food trucks around.  If that wasn't enough then you must succumb to the fresh baked goods by Karen Biscotti - as good as baked goods get.  Her biscotti, lemon bars chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies are scattered throughout Sweet Salvage and are simply the best.   Ok it is true I have been known to make a meal out of one of her cookies, or maybe two.  Shh!  Don't tell. http://www.karenbiscotti.com/Biscotti.html
