1940'S WATERFALL DECO NIGHTSTAND

today it's a cool night stand.
It's a little rough around the edges, but it's got a lot of style to it.
It had a matching dresser, but it was too much and it needed more work then the nightstand.  
Dovetailed drawers... This style of night stand is called Waterfall and is from the 1940's.
Plenty of room inside.
Ornate and vintage....  They really don't make them like this anymore...

VINTAGE BRENET STOP WATCH

Today it's about time...
Timing that is.
This is a working (although could use a tune up) Brenet Stop Watch.
It was just too cool to pass up at the thrift store.
It doesn't center back to start, but does start and stop.
That little switch is to turn it on, or off.
I always wanted a mechanical stopwatch.  They're tough to find one now days as everything is digital... it's Vintage Gear for Guys!

VINTAGE WHISKEY BOTTLE LABELS

Like Vintage?  Like Whiskey?  Like Vintage Whiskey?....
I just got an instant vintage whiskey label collection.
Here's most of them.   Some are actually in stacks so I'll be piecing these off as the year goes by.  
They look 40's to me judging by the colors and designs..   Anyone know?
Just really cool graphics and names.   I assume it was all the same bottle of whiskey only they'd put different labels for different parts of the country...
I never really knew stuff like this existed before, but I'm glad I know now.  They'll look great framed by my vintage cocktail bar!
