Friday’s Hunt v1.7 -- "G" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of February 12 is (1) Starts with G, (2) Week's Favorite, and (3) in My Kitchen.

(1.a) Starts with "G"

(1.b) Also starts with "G":  Guns.  Here, toy guns.  I found the little toy gun while I was digging in the yard.  It is a "Vintage Cap Gun, HUBLEY derringer TOY Vintage Cap Gun Classic" according to this photo that Google found for me when I Googled "Vintage Toy Derringer Guns."

Mine has all its movements stuck and not moveable now.  It is not rusted because it is cast aluminum and shouldn't rust.  The 'pretty good condition' toy gun shown on the left found when I Googled was an asked $29.9 plus shipping.  Mine is not for sale, but I suppose it would bring two or three dollars at a sale.
(2) Week's Favorite (left over from before Christmas)
Giant Santa advertising for the Marines' Toys for Tots drive.

"A" cleaned off island and cabinet tops. "Z"

Teresa of Eden Hills is running this meme, Friday's Hunt. She has three alternatives for us to post about but this one, Alphabet series, will be the one I will try to follow and post about.  - Her rules are: "Welcome to linkup for Friday’s Hunt. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter." 
 - The Mr. Linky address
here has a list of others who are participating if you would to read what these folk are doing for the Friday post  - For the week of February 12, our assignment was to post on any or all of these ideas: (1) Starts with G, (2) Week’s Favorite, and (3)in my kitchen.

Poppy Candle with Tin/Holder ~~ Warm Heart Wednesday No. 013

I like old things, I hope to show a bunch of old stuff that I have around the house by the time I get to the end of my Warm Heart Wednesday postings.

This is a "Poppy" Candle Holder that I found when I unpacked.  It must have belonged to Mom but I can't remember ever seeing it before.  It would make a good Valentine.

The candle is center top in the picture above (the wick is melted into the top surface).  It fits into the bottom side of candle tin.  Close the lid for storage and I suppose for snuffing the candle out also.

I couldn't find one like it on line but there were other bits of Poppy ware.   Antiques Road Show would probably say "Two Bucks" but I won't ever be able take it there.  I wouldn't sell it for $2.00 either.

Have you ever seen one like this?
