New Adventure into Blog Land & some Whatchamacallits & Whozits....




I have so enjoyed getting to visit you and your homes you have inspired me to start my own little blog. I think my name while short and sweet, aptly fits. My name is Cherry and I am always filled with jubilation when finding a new treasure thrifting. I think my need for old and tattered comes from my sentimentality. Things passed down to me by family I hold near and dear to my heart. I always treasure homemade over anything store bought. Ever since I was a little girl I have felt I was born into the wrong era. I love old movies & old books. I am attracted to history and anything or anyone that has been around long enough to tell a story. My great-grandfather was a story teller and used many catch phrases. He referred to trivial/frivoulous things with words such as whatchmacallits and whozits. Here are a few of my "new" whatchamacallits and whozits. I don't consider them as trivial but treasures. Some old tins, silver, and some little birds that begged to come home with me! They have now made their home perched on my newly painted secretary. Thanks for letting me share! Cherry

I love your tins. I started collecting tins awhile back from yard sales. I like to get the small ones and I use them all around my house for decorating. I will try to gather them and post them. The best part is they usually sell for nothing. I think the most expensive one I've paid for was $1.

These are all beautiful, but I especially love the tins. Don't know if you ever get to Corvallis, but if you should, drop by the Goodwill there. I have found some of my best treasures there. It is my favorite of all Goodwills I've ever been to. I'm truly glad you started blogging! :0)

Hi there Cherry :)
Thank you for coming by to see my blog. I read your first page and thought I would go back farther because I liked your blog so much.
I know that this is way back in your posts, but I totally connected with these words "Ever since I was a little girl I have felt I was born into the wrong era. I love old movies & old books. I am attracted to history and anything or anyone that has been around long enough to tell a story." That is something that could have been written by me!
Anyway... off to read more :)
