A Few Treasures From The Hunt!

I wanted to share with you a couple of fun things I found this week-end.

I have to say there are a few things that I'm not ready to give up right away.

One of them being this wonderful old laundry cart.

I haven't found any with this particular print on it.


Isn't that great!

I'm afraid I found the perfect place for it.

I thought I could store my burlap pillows in it until they're ready to take to the shop.

Another thing I found was a set of 30 old Britannica Encyclopedias.

The cover on each book is a soft worn leather.

They are dated 1911.

I don't know, I have a thing for old books.

I just love how they look and these definitely fit into the "old look" I love.

And last, but not least a sweet little pitcher, another item to add to my collection.

That makes "3"!

Did you do well treasure hunting this week-end?

Well, I am completely jealous of each of your finds. Unfortunately, I didn't get out this I'm feeling remorseful. Guess I'll have to hit a few thrift stores this week!
Have a good one and enjoy your treasures!

Your laundry cart was the ultimate find! It should hold your lovely burlap pillows quite well.
