Some Fun Finds...and a Winner...


This week has been a busy one around here getting ready for next week's Junk Bonanza!  I did shop at a few thrift stores though, and found a couple of fun finds!  I love the pretty rusty iron birds dish...that thing is heavy!


Look at this sweet little 1895 book!  It has the hard-to-find white cover, with beautiful gilt decoration and lovely flowers~ so charming!



I always love finding bingo items...like these fun slider cards...


Another fun item was this little old whisk broom...they look so great displayed in a group...


Also today...thank you to all of you who left a comment on my last post, and entered my little quickie giveaway for my 100th post!  There were 47 entries for the ephemera pack...


The winner is ... Jan of  Bobbypins Boardwalk



I am linking this post to My Cottage Charm's Treasures and Trinkets

Until next time...

  7. Nice! Ilove your finds. I saw your doggies on the site and remember this I just read the other day. "Pugs are like martinis, one is good and three are too many. I think that applies to about everything though :)

  26. Aww, Jan won! I love her blog! You've picked up some cute rusty bird dishes and that book is devine. I have a ton of those bingo cards, but blue...the resource center were throwing them away, because they were outside and it was beginning to rain, so of course I brought them home! I love them, too. I really like your white one's... Lezlee
