Tuesday Treasures~

Here is some stuff I bought this past weekend... A huge container of stamps & ink pads & embossing powders all for $3.Here is a close-up of what I'm keeping.Here are the stamps I don't want. A lot of them have never been used. I guess I could do a give-away right here and now if anyone is interested in having them, just mention tossing your name in the hat to be drawn out on lets say..... I dunno.... ummm Friday.This stack of old books was a $1.00 for the lot. The oldest one was from the late 1800's. Smells nice & old too...good thing old musty smells don't bother me, cause I am always sniffing old books! The two lights were .25cents for the big one and .10cents for the little one. Both work. Crazy prices huh? The buttons were .10cents...and the linens-- several hankies, one huge square piece with an embroidered "M" on it...and a delicate small square table cloth...all for $1. (I hope to share how to remove stains easily from linens soon....) I got this rose painting for $2...it is actually a lid off of a trunk. It is new, painted to look old... you can tell because the side pieces are pressed wood! I am going to do a transformation on this piece for an upcoming Transformation Thursday, so stay tuned for that :-PLastly, this huge pile of old games for the crazy sum of... nadda- zip- zilch... Fa---REE! I know right? Are you crazy lady? I'da paid ya' for 'em~ okokok, not much, but I would have bought them. I don't know what I'm going to do with them...but I have them, isn't that all that matters? Head on over to Diane's blog to see more Tuesday Treasures on her linky for "2nd Time Around Tuesday" Kimm is also hosting a linky party for her "Trash to Treasure Tuesday" Also.... if your wanting to see even more treasures stop over at Rhoda's blog "Southern Hospitality" If you have linked to my blog and wish to view more.... you can click here.

Wow -- LOVE the old linens, and the painted trunk lid -- can't wait to see what you do with that!

Wonderful finds -- and one of my daughters would wear "must old book smell" as her cologne if she could. Her best memories of family vacations are which places had the best used book stores!
