Suzanne at

Colorado Lady
is hosting this special day for us.

Be sure to go over and see all the other great finds at
and thank Suzanne for her wonderful and
consistent job hosting!!

OK, fist up is this old heater.
I was so excited to post it i did not even get it cleaned.
Haven't plugged it in to see if it works or not.

And how about these treasures!!
They are totally old bed lamps,
and, as if you can't tell,
thoroughly trashed and worn out.
But they work!!!
I cannot wait to re-do these, but i will.
They are on a long list with many other projects. =0)

A silver tea set is always nice.
You can never have too many of those. =0))

And in this picture there are 12 vintage cloth napkins,
edged in crochet.
A bundle of old "Workbasket" booklets.
(my Mom loves to read through those).

And this rusty 'treasure' on the bottom of the picture.
Maybe a damper from a stove??


And these are some of my Thrifty Finds!!

all this.....

and this.....

and this shelf....
and this quilt rack/shelf.....
FOR $20.00!!!!!!



These are all my Treasures for today.

Best get ready for Get R Done Friday now.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.
Barbara Jean
