Ant Heap STUFF!

There’s been a bit of activity over at Antique Heap Blog, and also on Flickr.  I think she’s gone crazy with all the paperback books she’s strewing all over the web.  After all she is my alter ego, and one and the same as yours truly.

North American B25 Bomber

I had this postcard and decided to find more information about it.

North American B25 Bomber antique postcard

North American B25 Bomber antique postcard at http://www.jewelant.com

From Wikipedia article North American B-25 Mitchell
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_B-25_Mitchell

The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation.

The B-25 was a descendant of the earlier XB-21 (North American-39) project of the mid-1930s. Experience gained in developing that aircraft was eventually used by North American in designing the B-25 (called the NA-40 by the company).

The majority of B-25s in American service were used in the Pacific. They fought on Papua New Guinea, in Burma and in the island hopping campaign in the central Pacific.

In Burma, the B-25 was often used to attack Japanese communication links, especially bridges in central Burma. It also helped supply the besieged troops at Imphal in 1944.

In the Pacific, the B-25 proved itself to be a very capable anti-shipping weapon, sinking many ships.

The first B-25s arrived in Egypt just in time to take part in the Battle of El Alamein. From there the aircraft took part in the rest of the campaign in North Africa, the invasion of Sicily and the advance up Italy.

The U.S. Eighth Air Force, based in Britain, concentrated on long-range raids over Germany and occupied Europe. During World War Two the British RAF received nearly 900 Mitchells, using them to replace Douglas Bostons, Lockheed Venturas and Vickers Wellington bombers.

Although the B-25 was originally designed to bomb from medium altitudes in level flight, it was used frequently in the Southwest Pacific theatre on treetop-level strafing and missions with parachute-retarded fragmentation bombs against Japanese airfields in New Guinea and the Philippines

The B-25 first gained fame as the bomber used in the 18 April 1942 Doolittle Raid, in which 16 B-25Bs led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle attacked mainland Japan, four months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) was an early customer for the B-25 via Lend-Lease. The RAF was the only force to use the B-25 on raids against Europe from bases in the United Kingdom, as the USAAF used the Martin B-26 Marauder and Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress for this purpose instead.

The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) was an important user of the B-25 Mitchell,

The Australians got Mitchells by the spring of 1944.

During World War II, the Mitchell served in fairly large numbers with the Air Force of the Dutch government-in-exile

The U.S. supplied 862 B-25 (of B, D, G, and J types) aircraft to the Soviet Union under lend-lease during the Second World War via the Alaska–Siberia ALSIB ferry route.

Well over 100 B-25Cs and Ds were supplied to the Nationalist Chinese during the Second World War. In addition, a total of 131 B-25Js were supplied to China under Lend-Lease.

During the war, the Força Aérea Brasileira (FAB) received a few B-25s under Lend-Lease.

At least 21 Mitchell IIIs were issued by the Royal Air Force to No 342 Squadron, which was made up primarily of Free French aircrews.

At 9:40 on Saturday, 28 July 1945, a USAAF B-25D crashed in thick fog into the north side of the Empire State Building between the 79th and 80th floors.

There are more than one hundred surviving North American B-25 Mitchells scattered over the world, mainly in the United States. Most of them are on static display in museums, but about 45 are still airworthy.

Antique pin gold leaf

One of my Antique pins

I have a lot of ANTIQUE jewelry that is between 50 to 170 years old. Rhinestone, metallic, Mother of Pearl, Earrings, pins, pins that double as necklaces, bracelets, and it is all very very old.  It was owned by a relative and she put it in a trunk where it remained for about 30 years until her passing.  There was so much of it that no normal person could wear all of it unless they wore a piece each day for years.  Additionally, I also inherited antique buttons, military emblems and awards, and medallions of all kinds.

So I aked myself “Hey, you, if you wanted a nice piece of jewelry for yourself, what would you do with it?”  And me said that I’d just make something out of it.  So here I post for you some of the jewelry I made out of my antique parts.  I would wear them myself, but I don’t have ten or twenty bodies to wear it on.  It’s all very dressy and for sale.

I’ve also got many broken necklaces that are antique beads that someone strung on simple sewing thread, which rots in 75-100 years.  So if you bead a lot contact me for pictures of my beads. I might have some you’d like.  If you have a question as to the history of some of them just ask and I’ll post an article on it.

I also have superb unbroken antique jewelry all over the place, but I will be posting that elsewhere, probably on my website at www.jewelant.com

NOTE ON SHIPPING:  Currently I do not sell outside the United States, so shipping is for the U.S. only right now.  Later on I may change this, but for now that’s the deal.  If you wish to buy more than one item I can ship several small items for the same shipping price.  Over a certain weight or size the package size goes up and so does the shipping.

For the Moms you knew

Chicken wall hanging

Moms Chicken

Mom was always doing art and artsy stuff. When I was very young, one day she started a project that always puzzled me, because she slaved and worried over it so strenuously.  And this is how it started.

She got out some wax paper, Elmers Glue, sawdust, a big bowl, some tools, and started mixing the glue with the sawdust. She drew out this chicken on the wax paper and then with the glue/sawdust mixture she proceeded to make a flat but bas relief chicken on the wax paper.

She fussed, she cussed, she just couldn’t get it right.  But when it was finished and dried out, it looked like the chicken in the picture above.  Well, it didn’t hold together very well.  It broke in all the small places like the feathers.  But I remember it so vividly because it seemed so important to her.  I didn’t try to figure it out then, but now I know what it all means.

See, when my mother died I inherited all of Grandmas stuff that SHE inherited.  And one of the things that I got was this cast iron chicken.  I had never seen the actual thing, I just experienced my Mom trying to make a chicken.  But now I know that it was her Moms chicken, and it meant a whole lot to her.

So this chicken has a place of great honor in my kitchen now. You just never know the history of things sometimes except by accident. If someone had thrown it out, I might never have known.

It was a very special light bulb moment when I “got it”

All Of Me (The lyrics to)  Written by Seymour Simons and Gerald Marks
All of me
Why not take all of me
Can’t you see
I’m no good without you
Take my lips
I never use them
Take my arms
I want to loose them
Your goodbye left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you
You took the part that once was my heart
So why not take all of me

All of me
Why not take all of me
Can’t you see
I’m no good without you
Take my lips
I want to loose them
Take my heart
I’ll never use them
Your goodbye left me with eyes that cry
How can I go on dear without you
You took the part that once was my heart
So why not take all of meI

92 year old World War One letter from King George

Letter from King George of England to the United States Expeditionary Forces in France

I have researched this item, and found that it was not the original hand-written one, which resides in a museum.  However, copies of the original letter were given to all the American soldiers that had come to fight in France during World War One to thank them for their help in the war. This one belonged to my Grandfather, who DID fight in this war, and so that makes it an antique for sure.  1917 is the date the Expeditionary Forces landed in France, so it is about ninety-two years old.

Antique World War 1 Letter from King George to The U.S. Expeditionary Forces

It says:

Windsor Castle

Soldiers of the United States, the people of the British Isles welcome you on your way to take your stand beside the armies of many Nations now fighting in the Old World the great battle for human freedom. The Allies will gain new heart & spirit in your company. I wish that I could shake the hand of each one of you & bid you God Speed on your mission.

George R.I. (R.L.?)    April, 1918

Hand Made Whisk Brooms from The Depression Era

MY GRANDPA MADE THESE

I know this because I watched my Grandpa make many brooms, and he had been making them long before I was born.  He grew the broomstraw on his farm, and harvested it to make brooms to sell to the community.  I still have the needles and equipment that he used to make them with.

Antique hand made whisk broom from the depression era

He built a broom house where he dried the broom, and they were stacked many layers.  The broom was dried on racks that went from floor to ceiling, and he would sit just inside the door stitching them together.  The straw was dyed green blue before drying.

Many of them were sold to the local hardware store, some to the grocery store, many more just to people that asked for them.  I have a big box of them, which I inherited when he passed away, and none of them have ever been used.

He also made regular sized brooms, but I have the last one of those, and I still have it, but it is used.   I’m not sure I’d want to give it up.  He made brooms back then that were better than the ones they make nowdays.

Broom care

Do not stand your brooms on the broom end, or they will warp.  Stand them on the handle end or hang them with the broom end not touching anything.  Do not wet a natural broom-straw broom, and keep it in a dry place.

They look new don’t they?

Well they are not. They’ve just never been used.  The only place that they show any age is at the top on the metal part, where there is some light rust spots speckle.  I’ve had these brooms for over 30 years, and that was after my Grandfather made them before and during The Great Depression.  That would make them a very well kept antique.

Artist Tsugouharu Foujita, 1886-1968

Foujita prints
Foujita was a Japanese Artist that moved to France and practised art there during the 1900’s.  He did a lot of cat prints and other things.  More history later . . . But in the meantime, here are some links to information on this artist, which will give you some background.  I have these on my wall at home.  Anyone have questions about them, just let me know.
