i remember seeing fuses and bulbs like that in my dads junk "area"!!he was quite the collector, much of what he saved, well, we have no idea what it even is!!!
I love coming across stuff like this! Love those old tins my parents' generation (but not my parents) kept all kinds of stuff because they'd lived through the Great Depression. Even I have a tendency to look at a cool new container and think it might come in handy... I make myself throw it away..
Good idea! I am home sick today. Not feeling inspired to do anything! Rain, rain, rain, cold, grumpy cats!

Awww...I know it's always so hard to let go when you know it was your Dad's.
Somethings are just hard to let go. Why, you really cannot say.
I have some of those on down on my work bench as we speak.
Oh the old tins, my husband has a lot in his 'man cave'. The kids may or may not enjoy cleaning it out one day :)Dianahttp://adifferentlenslens365.blogspot.co.nz/2014/10/old-fashioned-modes-of-transport.html
Whoaw! Exactly something I would probably find in my father's drawer. They make my mind wander endlessly.
I love your photos and I did the same with my dad's stuff last year. And I hoarded (as he did) a lot of his stuff, which my husband calls rubbish. I too have lots of old tins and tools etc. I must photograph what i have here and join in the meme.Thanks for visiting btw:)
what neat old cigarette boxes!
My dad had stuff stored in little boxes like these, too. I don't think we saved any of them, but now wish we had. Thanks for linking up. I'm sorry for being slow to comment.
Our parents were such collectors! Partly the Great Depression, methinks.
