Wordless Wednesday (projector)

An old Amprosound Projector.  It came with the house... what to do w/it, I don't know.  :)
Do you have anything old just sitting around your house?

We have a desk that's sitting in the garage...not really a desk. I think it's supposed to play some sort of game, but it's broken down and stands as something to keep things on :)

That is an interesting projector.

I think I'd like one for movie nights at our house since we do not go to the theatres.

Pat Hatt said...

I have a vcr, does that count as old? lol

Brandi Yee said...

That's so neat!! We actually have an antique Koken Barber Chair that was left in the basement of our house by the old owners. It was too heavy for them to move and now we don't know what to do with it lol.

stevebethere said...

That is definitely a relic heheh!

The only thing old in my place is me lmao :-)

Have a fantabulosa rest of week ;-)

Raising Reagan said...

Too bad you don't have anything you can play on there. MY husband had a ton of childhood film that I think would work on there (If that's what I think it is) but he trashed it as a child so I'll never be able to see them.

Very interesting, I like to collecting things like that.

Kristi Maloney said...

Too many things to count unfortunately! My husband's college text books, an old barbershop chair, and boxes full of old cameras and computer parts..etc..etc..

Theresa said...

That's really neat! I'm not sure what you could do with it though? I don't have anything old laying around here, but when my inlaws pass away, the new home owners are getting a piano with the house. It's been down there for YEARS. We have tried giving it away many times. People seem very interested in getting a free piano until they learn they are responsible for getting it up a flight of basement stairs. Then it's a no go lol.

That is really cool! My house was new construction so nothing was left behind. I actually prefer older homes but I am dealing.

Amelia said...

very cool! we live in a very old house...with very old plumbing and I'm often wondering "what am I going to do with this?" :)
Happy WW!

The Domestic Sweetheart said...

Wow, that's cool! I thought you would be interested in the giveaway i'm hosting for BluApple (extends storage life of your produce up to three times longer) on my blog www.domesticsweetheart.com :)

My Journey With Candida said...

We had an old projector that we just ended up throwing out because no one wanted it. I guess old is old... including myself.

Jennifer Leigh said...

We lost everything in a fire 5 years ago so nothing I own is older then that.

Secondary Roads said...

In our house, it is an old slide projector.

Monica said...

Wow, that certainly is an antique! The only old things in our house is me and my husband...lol!!

Teresa Kindred said...

I'm with Steve from Bthere2day....I'm old!

that is pretty cool.
do you have any film you could watch on it?

Pride In Photos said...

Rosey, I am not even sure what this is?☺ But I have learned as I age, don't throw away anything vintage! I wish I had a great idea for you but I don't. One day something will come to you when you least expect it. I don't have anything old laying around because we have moved to much. Then I am sad later when I want to use it but I had to give it away at the last move. BTW...you leave such endearing comments on my blog and it is VERY much appreciated my friend!

I have no clue what to do with that, but it looks neat! We don't really have anything laying around our house that we don't know what to do with. We do have a lot of stuff, though!

mail4rosey said...


It does! My youngest has never even heard of VHS. ;)

mail4rosey said...


I bet someone somewhere will be really interested in that!

mail4rosey said...


Whew, hubby's older than me, so at least I have that... hehehe

mail4rosey said...


You know I actually did consider asking. You never know...

mail4rosey said...


Oh my gosh, I feel like a jerk in saying when we moved in I trashed all of the projector slides. They were in a closet on a shelf (the only thing in the room) and I had no idea at the time they went to something in the basement storage that was left behind. I'm sure someone in their family would have wanted those slides. Too late to look back now, though I wish I had thought to ask.

mail4rosey said...


The second person to post they have an old barber chair. Cool!

mail4rosey said...


I was hoping someone would feel that way about a pool table when we were looking for houses, but alas we didn't buy one w/one already in place. Dang it.

mail4rosey said...


Give me new anyday. Something's always breaking when they're getting old.

mail4rosey said...


:(

mail4rosey said...


They left one of those too...

mail4rosey said...


Recycled use... always a good thing. ;)

mail4rosey said...


:)

mail4rosey said...


If it's copper someone would probably run over to your house to buy it. ;)

mail4rosey said...


Thanks for the heads up.

mail4rosey said...


Thank goodness people just get better w/age...unlike some tangible things. :)

mail4rosey said...


I bet hubby might not agree! :)

mail4rosey said...


Old's just a frame of mind...or so I've been told, hehehe ;)

mail4rosey said...


We would have if I hadn't trashed it. No clue they went together...I had main floor duty, hubby took storage (when we moved in and were cleaning up). That film was the only thing in a bedroom and like a dummy I threw it away (instead of seeing if someone in their fam. wanted it!). *sigh*

mail4rosey said...


Oh my gosh, I always same the same exact thing but every single time I see that beautiful baby I think how gorgeous he is!

Look at his little face! http://prideinphotos.com/2013/01/22/do-you-remember-your-first-tonka-truck/

mail4rosey said...


I have no clue either... lol :)

Lisa Isabella Russo said...

I have some "I have no clue" things too that I'm not really sure what to do with either... Your is very interesting looking though...

Carol L McKenna said...

No idea ~ interesting photo ~ google it ~

Xmasdolly said...

How neat is that? I wish I still had my dad's. What I do have is my dad's films that I would need a projector to play them, but about 10 yrs. ago I had all of them put on a DVD & thank God because they are starting to crack. Thanks for sharing that's so neat. Oh I just thought I just did mine to on a Wednesday I think it was I have a view master.

alissa apel said...

I love old things. I have a mask in the kitchen that belonged to my Great Aunt and Uncle. It was originally used to hold string or twine. People used to not have twisty ties or rubber bands. I use it for it's purpose. I rarely need string though.

Anonymous said...

I don't think that we have anything old left but I'm curious to see what you end up doing with this.

If you have not done so yet, you are welcome to share/link via our WWHop: http://www.craftyspices.com/hops/wwhop
Happy Day!

hi Rosey! I haven't met you yet, but I learned from sweet Theresa that I should meet you. Thank you for zipping to my site. Would you mind coming back and seeing today's post? I linked to a site and didn't hit "publish" after and I have been away from my comp for a few hours getting errands and grocery stuff done. Come back and everyone is commenting on Monday's post? Doh! OMYGosh!!!

My recommendation would be so sell it at a vintage line online or to a shop in your town/community. Thank you for your visit!

Leovi said...

Yes, it's very nice, I love this museum piece, at the time was high tech.

Judy Haughton-James said...

It is still looking quite good mail4rosey! Maybe a museum would be interested in it.

mail4rosey said...

We have a couple of things too. :)

mail4rosey said...

:)

mail4rosey said...

Ha, we have a view master, lol. My son loves it. :)

mail4rosey said...

Awesome!

mail4rosey said...

Already linked and saw those beautiful pictures from France this morning. :)

mail4rosey said...

Theresa's about as sweet as it gets, isn't she? She's always running around doing nice things (like telling people to come visit my site). :)

I can't believe you got jeans for under a dollar, and they're good looking jeans too!

mail4rosey said...

Story of our house... we had the oven repaired and the guy said, 'oh this used to be as good as it got, what an oldie!' lol

mail4rosey said...

It's been in the basement a few years (and who knows how long before that) so it could use a good cleaning. We have a museum north of us who might be interested, I think I'll give it a check.

Paula Miller said...

Wow I have absolutely NO IDEA what that is you have there!! Pretty cool :))

Happy WW!

Brandy said...

I honestly do not even know what it is ... lol but pretty cool looking!

Joyce Lansky said...

Love the antique!

Self Sagacity said...

That is something else, I have never seen one before.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Thank you Rosey for joining me!!!!!!

Veronica Lee said...

I still have my old analog camera that's just sitting around somewhere!

Happy Thursday, Rosey!

Art of RetroCollage said...

Now THAT'S a loaded question! LOL

moni said...

Thank you Rosey for visit me ♥

Wish you a nice day,
moni

mail4rosey said...

Happy WW to you too. :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL, I had to Google it too, I was totally clueless when I first came across it.

mail4rosey said...

I liked your hot dog picture too. Fun stuff.

mail4rosey said...

I've never seen one before or since either, in person.

mail4rosey said...

Happy to be following.

mail4rosey said...

I haven't saved any of my old cameras, but I wish I had!

mail4rosey said...

lol :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for your visit back. I liked your WW post, and I like those spotted orchids you posted, I've never seen such a thing those are great!

Masshole Mommy said...

I have a very, very old cash register that my papa used to have in his barber shop. I would never get rid of it, but I have no idea what to do with it, either.

Anonymous said...

Ampra-what? I wouldn't even know that works - or worked ... but it is cool! Saying hi through the Wordless Weds ... yes, I'm a day late ... stop by if you have the time!

mail4rosey said...

I bet it's nice to hold on to just because it was your papa's. :)

Karren Haller said...

That is kind weird looking, I would not have thought it was a projector. We have a cassette player and tape deck. And we still have the tapes that fit both.n Thank you for stopping by to hook up on Wordless Wednesday. I see you every where, lol
Have a great day!

The Crumby Mummy said...

That's impressive! I have a old writing desk made by my great grandad. I love old things with a story. Thanks for linking up! x
