Vintage mini sad iron


Ome Piet, heel veel dank! Uncle Piet, thank you so much!

This vintage mini sad iron that I’m holding came from my husband’s uncle, a vintage and antique collector. Uncle Piet is mighty proud that he could pass this to someone who he knows will treasure it. And I sure will.

Iron c1930. As heat source coal is placed inside. Why this small? People in the past used them to press difficult to reach areas of clothing, e.g. collars, raffles, pockets.



Alive and kicking!

Lol! Yes I am….just had a rather long vacation from blogging (health issues) but I shall try to post some photos whenever possible.

This droplet shot i took just 40minutes ago….colored the water red and used a plastic droplet so it’s neatly placed on that leaf….didn’t have to edit anything, just added a watermark.
