Good afternoon readers near and far! And welcome to a slightly different view of Steve’s Country today. A good friend of mine helped me out by suggesting this idea which I will be starting today. I will be posting a bit more often but my added posts will be shorter than what I normally write. And in these new posts I will take you on a bit of a tour of different topics, starting today with a general look at my many collections, then perhaps in some of the following posts I will give a closer look at some of my favorite items.
Normally this won’t happen on Monday but I wanted to start with this general look at things today anyway. That first picture above shows some of my blue and white graniteware collection. Seems this stuff is not as popular as it once was, but hey, I love blue! So it fits with me just fine.
Here is another part of my graniteware collection above. It really is beautiful stuff. But, I am considering getting rid of it anyway. It is getting a bit crowded in here and something has to go. But it might be something else instead. Who knows? Not even me!
Here in the above photo is what remains of my old medicine collection. I have actually sold most of that already. The nice thing about these medicine items is they are small, so they don’t take up much space. There are items in there dating from the early 1900’s up to the early 1960’s. I always found old medicine bottles and tins to be very interesting. Reading some of the fantastic claims on them is quite comical. And many of them still have their original contents which adds to their interest as well as the value.
The pic above shows some of my antique blue and white dishes. You can probably guess why I like those! The oldest items on that shelf date to the 1840’s, the ‘newest’ from about the 1930’s. The picture below shows some more of my blue and white dishes, mostly from the late 1800’s. There are more such dished scattered around in different places. I will showcase some individual items in a another post.
In the pictures below is part of my collection of old board games. They do take up a bit of space to display them and I don’t have all of them out because of that. But they are so nice and colorful and the variety makes them a very interesting collection for me.
Well everyone, guess we should call it a day. And that is certainly not everything I have, but it’s a good start for this tour of Steve’s place. There will be some more coming up and some close ups of some favorite items which I hope you will enjoy as well. My regular posts will be the same as usual. I hope you have enjoyed today and I will see you again tomorrow. Enjoy the rest of your day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
