What a lovely and unusual post..
It happens that I have a very old iron. It was used to iron lace collars and cuffs....
I can even remember my mother putting an iron on the fire grate to heat... JUST SHOW HOW OLD I AM...

I use an iron that sings and dances as it goes too...yet I still hate having to bring it out and iron anything...lasy... x x x

I can relate to your old iron. We had them when I was growing up. In the winter time we would put them on the wood stove, get them nice and warm. Wrap them in paper to help warm our beds at night. My mother's first electric iron reminds me of your second picture. I am telling my age. I have a Black and Decker Quick and Easy iron at the moment. It fit my budget at the time and serves it purpose. Take care.

I laughed at the "lights flickering" comment. Not a good thing to happen when using something electrical. I agree that it's time to retire the old beauty & get a new iron.

I have 2 old irons sort of like your first photo. I never used them though. Just use them for decor.

Thanks for visiting my blog & taking the time to comment.
