With Steampunk on my mind, I decided at noon that I would go to a few garage/yard sales to look for usable metal stuff. Started off the intelligent way. Checked the net. Only found one in my area. June 4th. I wanted to go to one TODAY!! (Sounding like a 2 yr old)
Got in my car, drove around for an hour. Pretty yards, pretty flowers. No Yard Sales!!
So, I did the next best thing.
Went from room to room in my own house. Opened all the drawers. I hit the jackpot in the dining room. Now, I have to tell you. The last time anyone was in there was 5 years ago for a family holiday gathering. There’s a beautiful table in there, china cabinet sitting on top of the hutch, 6 chairs, etc. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IN THERE!!?? Nothing!! So it was no surprise that I found lots of goodies. Hidden treasures.
Aren’t these GREAT!! And just yesterday I saw some skeleton keys like these for $10 each. On-line. Ouch.
I found a bunch of other stuff I can use. But none as interesting as these keys. Stay tuned for my Steampunking stuff.
