Baby Chick is a great place to display other old aged Prerestoric stuff.
Baby Chick is coming along. We filled up three large trash cans of dirt, rags, and other stuff unrelated to her or her life. I sifted through it all. Oh, even a number 2 pencil was saved. Even the smallest detail can be a fun story. Like an old switch. With all that said, I did find some stuff I didn’t know about. I know many do know this stuff, but for me it was new.
I knew that the seat bases had leather and canvas, BUT? I didn’t know it was stained the same color as the seats. SO COOL!
You can see the condition of her bottom. Its a mess. But to be honest, who cares if one day it will be replaced. Also put the top frame on
Cleaned up and cushions in place.
Gotta say, if I had WECATHCEM and BABY CHICK side by side at a show, BABY CHICK would draw more attention. Something about the time worn life is always cool to see.
Those upholstery nails are 1 inch apart. Thats a shipload of nails. I could just imagine the guy who installed these. I bet he did it like a machine gun..
Oddly, no smell.. No one is more surprised than me. Then again, I don’t think I smell.. And well, dont ask the Boatress cause she has a different take on that issue.
She will never be alone again. She has a twin sister and some big and little sisters. OH GOD, its all girls.. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! There is an offensive joke in there someplace, but no way in hell I am going there. Not with a building full of Old Chicks..
Some of the stuff found sifting through stuff. And I am not done yet. Still have some more cabinets to pilfer through. YIKES. I swear I cringe putting my hands in there. And yes Mr B is always on watch
So this could be a story unto itself. BUT, not sure how much milk is in this one, maybe just a small splash of cream. This is a show worthy detail on the inside of seat base stuff. You can have this printed on the lining if you want to go all out. I will for sure. Then for the judges cut open the seat base.. That’s a shock and aww moment. 25 SPORTSMAN SS 1946, not sure what SS is?
STAY TUNED, BABY CHICK IS LIKE A DAIRY!
