What a haul!

(Images just for you from my new bird book ~)

You know I have to share the goodies I found
while junkin' in the mountains....
well, I finally pulled it all out and
set it up for a few photos!

First...see that old Chinese checkers board? Too cool ~ and plus
and old Monopoly game and I think all the pieces are there!
I don't know though...
The round thing is a puzzle box! I'm not sure all the pieces are there
but for .50 I just wanted the box!

Tons of sewing notions ~ 5 bucks

A few old baby hats and a little baby boy sweater.
I don't know why I bought them, but I did...
they have a little staining but you know I don't care about that!
Sweet daisy trim....

The books and bottles, only $1 each! One of the books
(the one that's opened) is a student's dictionary from the late 1800's ~

I love the graphics on these shoe lace labels!
They remind me of Cathe over at Just Something I Made ~

And I LOVE these old black straight pins
they will look GREAT in pincushions that I make!

I know this is a simple, inexpensive candle holder
but I see it spray painted cream and holding a tuffet pin cushion ~

This little bird book is an ebay find that came in the mail today!!
I believe I have a collection of children's bird books now ~

The images above are from this new book ~ I hope you like them!
I'm sorry about the strange pattern on the backgrounds of the prints,
I tried to edit them but couldn't get it to go away ~

Wishing you a great Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Hi Dawn,
You found the best stuff. I love the black straight pins in their original cards. The old books are a fave of mine. I'm always looking for old books with wonderful illustrations. I know you will do something great with all of this.

I love it all, i mean I love it ALL!!!

Oh, the simple little candle holder you found for a pin cushion?
Reminds me, I have a laundry basket full, yes FULL of items like that i have picked up to make pin cushions out of. It's only been sitting around for a year.
I have made two!
I'd better get busy on that. =0))

Theresa said...

Wow, you struck gold my friend! Wonderful pictures of the birds and all of your goodies! Have a blessed day!

Barb T. said...

Dawn--Thanks for sharing your finds, particularly the bird images; I am copying them and will put them to good use.
I believe the pattern on the prints is what is called moire (sp.) Sometimes you can avoid it by scanning tilted images. Instead of lining the image up perfectly, place it at an angle. Give it a try; sometimes it works, others it doesn't.

Hi Dawn! I love your blog! I look forward to it every day! I love the treasures you found! It looks like the red book is At The Foot of The Rainbow - Gene Stratton Porter - If you have never read her books you should take a look - they are wonderful beyond belief!!! She has one titled The Song of The Cardinal - You would love it. Although I love all her books!!! Have a great Tuesday! Kris :)
