A Few More Finds!

Today, I received a phone call from a friend.

She was having a garage sale and wondered if I wanted to come and look before it opened.

She had set some old books aside from the 1800's, which I just loved!

She seems to know what I like.

I also found a wonderful old mirror and a few other goodies.

Since I was taking pictures I thought I'd show you a few other things I like to pick up when I'm out and about.


I like to pick up old letters, here are a bunch I aquired this past week-end.

This is another item I bought a couple of weeks ago.

It needs to be cleaned up but I liked the color.

I'm not usually a fan of blue, but this works for me.


Here is a big momma raccoon that showed up while I was at the garage sale today.

Apparently, she and her family show up on a regular basis, ready to eat a little dog food!


My friends from Diane and Donna are having a fun giveaway so be sure to stop by and say hi!

Oh yes, if you mention my name I will get another chance to win.

And you know, everyone likes another chance!

I love old books. Many times my purpose for going to flea markets is to look for old books.

Have a blessed day!

Hi Debbie,
What great finds! I do love those letters. I love to see all the great things that others find. I almost get as excited as when I find things for myself.
That's a big racoon you have there. We have several around here too. They usually only visit here at night.
I went over and signed up for the giveaway and told them that you sent me.
Hugs,
June

Love the vintage books! And the letters...I've never seen any letters in all my antique and flea market travels. That was a fabulous find!

Now that's a good friend to have! Love those books! And I am soooo jealous you scored those old letters, they are one of my favorites, but rather hard to come by these days.
