My Loot for the Weekend


Not many great finds this weekend.
Barely filled the car.
I'll take better pics as I get them out,
but for now here they are.
Those white things are two shabby peely folding patio tables.
Here is shabby black table, and a sweet clock.
(Table needs top.
I told myself awhile back I was not
buying anything else that needed fixin',
but i could not resist this.)
How about a box of jewelry for $5.00!!
This box is 8x10x6.

(see the specks of blue in these boxes?
That's my Blue Monday stuff)


And if ya' liked that,
here is another box about the same size. $5.00.
Cannot wait to go through these!
I'll show ya' when i get it sorted out. =)


Box of rusty doorknobs, brackets, hinges and so on.
Oh, and little nest i made while out walking.


Here is a sweet book I got.
Have not been able to find value of it,
but think it was written in 1890's.

I'm joining these parties today.
Thanks to our hostesses.

blessings all

Wow, you made quite a haul! I'm moving back home to Louisiana soon, so I've been trying not to buy too much (don't want to have to pack it and haul it back home) but I keep seeing things I want...

Oh- more parties I HAVE to join!
This week I am showing my treasure by color, so please do stop and see more than one post.
You did alright for a not-great weekend. I spy potential.
John Ploughman does sound familiar, but I even like it just for the looks.

How fun! Looks like you had as much fun as I had in your store! The car was about as full. Glad you had a good time!

You sure picked up some great stuff! I love boxes of goodies and going through them is so much fun. I spied a wonderful old door plate and knob. The big box of jewelry will be great for embellishing pretties.
