Canton Finds with KI

I realize that you all like to see the goods... so here is part of my Last Weekend Haul. Not all of this came from Canton, Some came from Winnie & Tulula's and some from other secret places:) I have 2 of these art decor iron lamps as seen above.

Sweet old bottles
I love an old rusty birdcage

I got several of these old pew pockets, These are the longer ones and I also have some shorter ones. See below for a project with them.
Love this old document box
Isn't this old telephone table the bomb!!! It even has a little pull out writing surface

And you know I love trouble lights.
some great small metal labels for assemblage projects
Are these tops??? Not sure, Marked King Scientific co Chicago on the end.

Tomorrow I'm headed to DFW to see the Red Shed Girls, then Lunch with my Mom and to see my Son in college and then ...
I pick up my new baby girl Lisa... Will post pics when I have them. Will need to give her some time to acclimate.

Now for the Project
When I purchased the pew pockets above Ki said, "These would make great risers", so I had to try it.
As you can see the long ones work great for a computer keyboard. I added some felt sticky feet to give the cord room to stick out the back.

Most of these items are already listed on my Etsy Store.

Great stuff and fun idea for a riser! I first thought plumb bobs when I saw those silver thingys.

They look like plumb bobs and not tops to me.

I am CRAZY about that telephone table!!

I see the pew boxes as the start to flower boxes, or a letter keeper, or a lot of possibilities. It has been too long since I've found great architectural salvage.
I think Deb may be close with the plumb bob theory. It is just the hole placement that makes me hesitate to decide. (My surveyor just left this morning and won't be back for 2 weeks.)
