A Few Vintage Finds

I found a few vintage items to share. My general rule when purchasing items is that they should serve a purpose. However, there are rare occasions when charm trumps functionality. Vintage Metal Shovels I love to garden, but not with these!

Vintage Rug/Quilt Beaters Does anyone beat rugs or quilts these days? There's something endearing about such a task, but I must say I've never tried it. If anyone has a memory to share about beating rugs, blankets, quilts or more, I would LOVE to hear from you!

Hi Cindy,
I don't beat rugs, but I do have a few rug beaters. I was always worried the kids would use them as weapons. :) Yours are really darling.
Take care,

I don't know anyone that beats rugs but I really like your rug beaters. Do you display them?

Those handles are adorable! I love the looks of rug beaters, but I haven't used one either. I have used a straw broom to beat out horse blanket, though!

Very sweet finds. I can't say that I have beaten any rugs lately, but you might find me vacuuming or shaking out a rug or two!

Well, I am so thrilled to have happened across your page!! Needless to say that if you stop by mine, you'll see that we have something in common...hmm, wonder what that could possibly be??
Will visit often.

I seem to recall beating quilts that belonged to my grandmother when I was a kid....rugs too possibly. Mermaid Queen, I know for a fact that my boys would have whacked each other with them.

Those beaters are adorable and could look perfect just about anywhere.
