Sunday Stills: Potluck

We were left to our own devices this week, so I wandered around the living room in search of interesting vignettes.

I liked the texture of this little basket.

The old iron and sewing book seemed a good combination.

Gears from a sausage grinder.

A different angle.
I have no idea where the little basket came from. I remember the old iron from my childhood home. The sausage grinder was one of my father's finds -- he was forever poking around second hand stores for "cool stuff."

The globe is part of our family history. I was told that my grandfather bought it for my grandmother during World War II. My father fought in the South Pacific, while his brother was sent to Europe. My grandmother could use the globe to keep track of her boys. Although, their correspondence was censored so I'm not sure my grandparents really knew where their sons were until both came home safely to tell their stories.

To see what others captured this week, visit Sunday Stills.

Cool story about the globe! I like the meat grinder.

Looking at the globe now, I bet you'd find borders that no linger exist, and countries whose borders have changed.

i have a small collection of old globes. Love the story behind yours, though.

The shot of the sausage is very good - just enough detail to make it an almost mystery shot!

Each shot is is unique and different from the others. I really like the texture feel of the basket. The composition of the book and iron makes the photo, I think. Good job!!
