RANDOM PICTURE POST
i like clouds and i take many pictures of them. had this sky a few evenings ago. as good as i can get living at the bottom of a hill.
RANDOM HOARD POST
i like butter stamps/molds. i have one from my grandma that i got. i bought an old one at my resale shop. but a while back i managed to get 2 nice ones off ebay pretty cheap and found this one that is similar to one of those. i believe it's very early. the stamp used to be a mold. missing the 4 sided box.i can see where they shaved the edges. maybe they glued it to the handle when it broke. it's the damaged ones that need my love.

THURSDAY ARCHITECTURE BLOGGING
a piece of milwaukee's beer past. part of the schlitz complex. of course the pabst and miller ones are more magnificent.
RANDOM ESTATE SALE POST-wauwatosa!
more like a dud. nice 1900ish bungalow. but needs tender loving care. at one time the owner's had taste, but then the offspring....bad. very bad. but i have had worse $3 bags. mainly rich east siders. the majolica lightfixture give a hint of the houses quality. nice woodwork, unpainted luckily. basement pretty nice considering. attic ok. oh, did i mention there's a cemetary on the other side of a small old business next door? small bedroom in the attic with windows that face the cemetary. nursing home to the south across the street. but i hop they fix it up. i could live there. nice trees.
