Some Fun Finds...


This week I found some goodies out thrifting!  Two 1880's music books were in the haul~ I love the rustic old covers, this inscription, the sheet music, and the graphics...
 


I love this old wood box with an autumn scene on the lid...


Look at this fun old canvas knapsack...I love the # 3 on the closure flap...



I love the patina on this great old horn !

 There were some more romantic finds this week, too~ like this cute round embroidered pillow sham...



and this set of HIS and HERS embroidered pillowcases with lovely crocheted edging...




I also had some fun finds at the Haupt Antiek Market monthly sale!  I love this old table runner found in dealer Pam S's space~ it has wear, but is so sweet to me...


And look at these fabulous vintage French Floral cards~ I bought 20 of them~ such lovely graphics! Deb Haupt, the shop owner, picked them up on her recent trip to Europe!  They are softer and even more lovely then this photo shows...


I found these wonderful big rolls of seam binding in dealer Pam C's space...


Another fun find was this old reader in Kari's space...


Look at the wonderful old graphics!


I can hardly wait to do projects with scans from this book!


I am linking with Treasures and Trinkets Thursday

and  Debbiedoos Garage Salen Party

Until next time...

  2. Neato Linda. A good friend of mine is a piano teacher, so she would totally appreciate that cool music book. And the book with the vintage bird graphic is really cute. You could make copies of those pages and modge podge them on something fun! Thanks for joining me, you always find the neatest stuff. Have a great weekend. Debbie

  9. Great stuff LInda, and I always adore anything vintage music related. That seam binding is awesome! My friend uses that a lot on her cards, but she has to get it on line because you can't "buy" seam binding anywhere here like the old stuff. Very cool!

  13. Oh, my goodness! Thank you for stopping by my blog, and I'm SOOO glad that I followed you back to yours! It's amazing, beautiful and fun. But I insist that you take me "goodie hunting" with you next time. Well, might be difficult, since I live in Texas.
    I'm your newest follower, and can't wait for your next installment.

  14. If I had been with you I would have fought you for all that lovely embroidery and that reader...two things I love! Don't know why but there just aren't any great finds in my neck of the woods anymore! I need to go on a road trip!

  15. Linda...just read your post on the Junk Bonanza & I have a question, just out of curiosity. Where in the world do you and the others find all this stuff? You never see much of this sort of thing in the area in which I live...south GA. Not sure anywhere in GA. I have often wondered if it was because a lot of our "stuff" was destroyed when Sherman marched through GA and burned everything during the War Between the States. There are a few antique markets around but most that I know of are expensive antiques, some craft items, etc. But I've never seen anything like your pictures show. I'm just totally curious as to how folks like you find all this stuff...it's amazing to me!

  23. Linda,

    What great treasures you discovered! I especially like the music books and his and her embroidered pillow cases. Don't you just love when old books are inscribed? The handwriting is so always so beautiful - art in its own rite.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. This is my first visit to yours but I will be returning. Now I am off to check out your shops!

  38. Hi Linda! Looks like you've been having some wonderful times. I went out junking for the first time in quite awhile. SO much fun! I'm drawn to the embroidery and to old paper and script too. Your nature scenes were lovely to look at. Our fall is not so advanced yet. And the Junk Bonanza looked like so much fun!
