Looking Back from Vintage till now...

Life can be difficult, perhaps this is one reason I have love for old, vintage and rustic pieces. A friend dropped by, we grew up in the Cariboo and we now live in the same area on Vancouver Island. We have a lot in common and had a great time looking at some of my collection.

The old wall phone is a favorite family piece from the home ranch that my Dad gave me. 

My buddy and I both worked at B.C. Tel and several of these phones came in from the Chilcotin during our time at B.C. Tel. We both wished we had kept some, they are worth a lot these days. Mr. Pickwick (Beswick England). A farmer who was out standing in his field and a Presidents of United States plate.
Geese heading south a favorite sign and a day lily
A lonely deer, a table I made at trade school, a little color and burning some brush in my back yard.
A painting looking to Cape Mudge Lighthouse Quadra Island and a painting gathering seaweed
Happy Halloween everyone stay safe!

  7. Yep the phone is pretty neat! Burning brush, is it fun or a chore? We don't do that in my area of the states, seems more fun than a chore though. Thanks for joining us at Cap Creations.
