Aarrrggggh me hearties... its been perfect yard sailing weather of late.... I found this beaut of a treasure chest waiting for me at the very last yard sale I went to. How much did I pay for this old chest?.... Would you believe me if I told you only $10?... 'tis true, 'tis true!

Some one, at some point- lined the entire trunk with wood, they did a really good job.

The little trunk next to it was only $5.00..... argh... that beaut came home with me as well~

This one was full of treasure! Well, ephemera treasure that is!

I also found some other odds and ends that caught my eye... it is never to soon to start working towards next years pirate party. *wink*

I also bought three pieces of drift wood and a fabulous metal banded box. I'm going to cut a piece of wood and cover it with burlap to make the box into a table....arrrgggh....

 I also found two rusty pulleys and some chain... 
and a few pieces of jewelry and other odds and ends to satisfy my piratey weekend~ aaarrrrgggggh~
big hugs,
