New Treasures

 will you look at this find!!!
A Suzy Homemaker stove. too cute. less than 18" tall
and works. This was gone before I got a price tag on it.
 Got this new metal cabinet by Lyon Company.
 locking door......
now a display piece at the store.
 This cool old scoop, used to scoop cement looks like.
 How about this leather satchel.
Love this!!! Pretty messy inside, but great to put on a shelf, or
how about a plant in it for the patio?

 and this special find.
Not too impressive looking I suppose.
But what if I told you it is part of a 75 year old....
curtain stretcher??
Yep. I've never heard of it either.
But fun treasures for art or creative wall hanging.
They measure from 46" to 57",
and there were 8 of them in the box.
Some even have a lip on the edge and could hold scrabble tiles....
I see some fun projects coming!!

Thanks for visiting.

Game Pieces and Creative Fun

 New games and creative display at the store.
 see those burgundy colored scrabble tiles?? 
 lots of fun numbers in this game.
 Those are Reno Keno cards in background. 
They are fun when cut up for tags.
I think everyone should have an old Rook game around.
The crow on the cards is so fun. =)
 scrabble tiles...motel keys......
 dominoes, flash cards, words, numbers,
buckles, typewriter parts....all kinds of fun.
and more words and letters.
Now, just to find time to play!!!  =)

Heavy Treasures for the Garden

           113 004
My blogger friend Karen, the 
who lives in Washington, has just posted this great pic
 of the cultivator disc we have at the shop.
She was hoping to come down this summer, 
but she could not wait to get hers, so I shipped it.

Now, those of you who are visiting my site are wanting 
to know where my store is, I will put it on my side bar.
I also sell from my blog, so if you see
 something posted here you like just let me know.

So glad you like your disc Karen.

 blessings to all

Yummy White Finds

Recent buying trip at Portland Expo center,

Just had to have it!

And from other shopping trips:
 Sweet creamy ornate little comb,
with it's own case.
 piano keys from a little 12" play piano.
And this funnel.

New Treasures

Not much time for blogging these days.
.but I will show you some of my latest finds.
See that black iron 'basket' the shoe forms are in??
I think it is a part of an old stove...
love it as a basket.
Here is a sweet piece of furniture.
 I get to decide whether to paint it or leave it.

And how about a wheelbarrow full of 'junk'.
Good ol' rusty junk.
My kind of fun!!

and love this 6 drawer file.
but my FAVE find was this typewriter.
Bought it cause I love the color, and knew it would sell well.
But now I found out it is worth over $200!!!
That made that blue even prettier than before. =)

Blessings on your week everyone.

A Bit of Pink Heaven Project Reveal

Ele, at
has some wonderful fun going on at her place.
She put out an Artist Call...
(she sends out goodies and you create with them)
And I responded, and here are some pics of what I created.

this one is not quite done.....
still need s little something.
here are bits and pieces of the one that is done.
Most of what I used was in the goody box, but I did add
one of my flowers....

 I used some little snippets of lace I had...
 and buttons...
and this is a piece of wire from a typewriter,
 easily bent into a heart...

Love the beautiful paper she sent....
.and cute little "adore" ticket.

 This hand stamped ribbon is from
Lots of wonderful treasures on that site.

And here is my finished piece.
It was fun and interesting working with things someone else provided.
The burlap, paper, tags, and wonderful pin were from Ele.
I tried to add as little of my own things as possible.
A bit of doily, my flower, and some buttons and lace.
so fun!!!

These are the other gals who are participating.
Cannot wait to see what they have done.

Thanks Ele.

Blessings on this beautiful Monday
