Basement Adventures Part 2

As the clean up/ clear out progresses I have more goodies to share with you.

I think this one is my favorite. I found an unused valentines card... timely, eh? It reads "I'm not interested in a nice, normal relationship!" and on the inside it says "I like ours better." I will absolutely be giving this "found in the basement" card to my hubby come this valentines day. I vaguely, like a distant thought in the back of my mind, remember buying this for him one year and I waited for him to give me a card but he did not, so, I did not give him one either.

Now this basket of randomness with spider webs intertwined throughout just intrigues me. I don't understand what the wooden thing with string wrapped around it is for or what the metal thing is. I feel almost like I'd be disturbing one eyed Willy's treasure if I were to move any of it's contents. I'm not sure why but a few items like this, and my grandpa in laws tool table that has NEVER been touched since he passed just seem like they need to be left alone... inevitably, I will take more photos and then disturb the history that has thus far been preserved in my basement but for now they stay as is.

This bike basket with something that looks like a speedometer was buried in a box of stuffs. I couldn't even begin to tell you why but I like it. I have a strong feeling that the bike it attatched to is actually hanging on the wall in the back of my rickety garage (that is currently on its way to falling over... the tiny shack of a garage is worse off then the basement).

This one I have listed to etsy. It's a fire king jadite D handle mug. I've it listed for $30. It seems to have some value in it. I do love it though. I'm kind of a fan of mugs and this one is just a fabulous vintage little fellow with the most gorgeous pale minty color. If it were said that I collected anything, mugs would be it. But this is rather small for my liking and if I can get $30 out of it I'll gladly let it go.

That concludes the basement adventures as of now.
