Treasure Hunting

Here's a group shot of all the great treasures I found at the Washington County Antique Show and Flea Market on Saturday. Each item has already found a home in my kitchen, on my dining room hutch, or my living room fireplace mantel.
But some of my most exciting finds lie within the pages of those beat up old books. Photos of early movie stars, a child's primer in Russian, sheet music with the lyrics in French, an early 1900s Speller, and an unused workbook. The ephermera motherload, I might call it. I can't wait to post the creations I come up inspired by those hundred year old sheets of history.

  1. These all belong in my 50's kitchen. They are wonderful. I know you will find wonderful things to do with them and I too am anxious to see what that will be.

  2. How the heck did I miss this? But; I was teaching Saturday anyway and Sunday was busy - darn it! I would have loved to gone to the fairground flea market. You picked up some lovely things; can't wait to see what you do with them. Your cards for your vendor project are awesome! You'll sell bunches! xxoo
