Fun Finds...

 I've had some find finds at thrift stores lately!  My favorite is probably this absolutely charming old hand colored framed 8x10 photo of a young girl!  It's just so sweet and I love the homes in the background!
  I also found a great old cabin style painting on a carved board.  
 A lovely hand painted tole silent butler and two French school books are among the romantic style finds.
 I found a wire basket, a fabulous vintage hanging shop light, some weathered vintage clothespins, and a lovely antique carved tarnished silverplate creamer.
 
 At the antique sale I participated in, I bought one piece- a huge vintage darkened commercial baking pan for hot dog buns or eclairs- it just has such a graphic look as a piece of art or for a project!
 My thrift finds were rounded out with some vintage music flash cards and some fun sewing supply finds and booklets.
I loved my finds this week- you just never know what's waiting to be found!!
Thanks so much for all your kind comments...they are SO appreciated!
Until next time...
Linda

  10. Oh Linda..
    You kinda hit the motherlode on these finds you lucky girl! I adore old french school books, the pages are so fun to make things with but then it just doesn't seem right to tear them up. That one is always a hard decision for me. Have fun with all your goodies..

  15. Hi Linda, love all your goodies! I love the sewing, and especially the music stuff since I play piano. As a matter of fact a couple of days ago, I photographed some of my vintage music stuff that I'm planning to post this weekend. Only one more day of work and I can play!

  19. Very cool finds! :) Love that basket of clothes pins. I still use my grandmother's clothes pins because I just don't think the more modern springy ones hold nearly as well! And I DO love hanging out towels, sheets, quilts, etc. : )

  23. Linda!

    Wow- I love the wire basket and the vintage baking pan.
    Those have such a neat appeal.

    I also like the vintage photo. Something about old photos, huh?
    Makes you sometimes wonder- what was significant about that day they had to get the camera out. Had to be something special probably.

    Enjoying reading your blog.
