  1. I remember the sound jars. They were popular when I first started working at school in the late eighties. Lots of teachers made their own with 35mm film canisters. There’s a book I have somewhere called 101 uses for film canisters. It’s full of teacher ideas using them.

  2. The purse is a great find, Dooneys are wonderful designer bags, very well made when that was new it went for 300.00 so 50.00 is a bargain

    I have been subscribed to you for a long time and this is the first video I have gotten in a really long time. I actually thought you had stopped posting. The necklace is a belt. Dooney and Burke sells for about $100.00 for the cloth to well over $500.00 for leather. They also have my initials on a lot of them. So I have a few. Great find.

  4. Call him Woody lol thev whale, he is beautiful,, love your denim skirt , it's you ❤

  6. Hi does anyone know whether Racheal from "Sweet and Simple Home" (Youtuber) is. I ask this because I have been watching her videos it is so good but can't seem to find her anywhere is she no longer doing Youtube? Ashwina

    Dooney & Bourke handbags can last years and years. they do get softer with age . they are one of my designer bags that I love to carry. You got a fabulous deal.

    Name the whale picture…Woody!

  9. There is more of the milk and butter set! I have seen the blue/navy before but not the off white. Good luck with the hunting!

    My children go to a Montessori School and do the sound matching work. My four year old is excellent at it, and my two year old is still mastering it.

  11. Love the Downey and Burke purse and the whale art! Would have bought both of those things myself!

  12. Finding that purse was an excellent deal. It normally runs about 300-400 dollars

  13. loved the skirt, very nice.

  15. The purse was a very good find. Very Beautiful. They usually retail for about $200 if not more.

    The purse was a steal I have one and it is going on 20 years! The stiffness does sort of go away BUT, I think the stiff construction of what makes these purses indestructible!

  17. preservid says:

    The first name that came to mind when I saw The whale art work is WALL- E (from the movie) Wall, whale

  18. Maybe someone already said..but the Necklace is probably "Gold Lame'" (pronounced Lamb-A) Gorgeous!!!

  19. In Canada we call the butter a pound of butter or a block of butter. It's like 4 sticks in one rectangular block.

  20. Nice finds love the whale! Wallace is a good name. Hugs from Montana!

  21. Shelley says:

    That purse is constructed to be a “stiffy” it will always retain its stiffness. I hate a stiff purse yet I prefer my sheets on my bed to be more stiff like percale sheets over softer sheets! IKR??? LOL

  22. Shelley says:

    I love that denim skirt, it’s going to look good on you too!
