Plus as we all know, I really love, for the sake of themselves, old, forgotten, unused items set aside for new, shiner items. I always buy an antique with the plan of bringing it back into the world and using it for its intended purpose or giving it a new one. Who knows whose hands turned that mixer, or what they were mixing up, or for whom. Don't EVEN get me started on chipped porcelainized dish pans and the like. THEY NEED new life!
So in that vein, "New Life? Yes, new life. I would like some moh' please."
