{ the loot }

It was such a beautiful fall day today. Perfect for getting out and hitting the yard sales and antique stores. Just thought I'd share some photos of the loot I scooped up today.  

{ awesome vintage mason jars, the large one is marked 1858 }

{ a lovely milk glass planter, this one will complete a set for me }

{ an old rustic cutting board, I just loved the patina on it }

{ one of my favorite finds this old ammo bag from WWII, isn't it awesome}

{ a couple of sweet vintage patterns, I would wear either of these if I could only find someone willing to sew them up for me }

{ a vintage tobacco can, this one reminds me of my parents because they have one like it in their mountain cabin }

{ an adorable set of mod sixties canisters, too cute to pass by...the orange on has a baby inside. }

{ vintage books from the 1920's,  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these old reading primers...so sweet } 

{ some hand picked vintage postcards, I love every one }

{ another very old reading book, it has the sweetest images }

{ in preparation for the holidays, an old red handled potato masher....love me some mashed potatoes }

{ biggest score of the day is this lovely antique side table, I love the scrollwork bars on the sides }

{ this is probably my second favorite find today, an old Kodak Vigilant Junior Six-20 camera }

Oh, and I almost forgot about the old white crate in the top picture. I'm gonna be able to find lots of uses for that guy....for right now though, he's still carrying all of my loot.  Woo Hoo for loot, and great friends who love to go out and find loot too.  Love ya Brit.

Happy Saturday

peace, love & hugs

  16. I love all the loot you found. I love yard sales and thrift stores too. Though I am trying to cut back on all the things I get. Love the mason jars, I have one or two of those 1856 ones, too. They look so pretty with stuff displayed in them. I absolutely love milk glass, I have posted about my collections of it on my blog. The yard sales have stopped in our area now, it is too cold. Also like the old school books.
