a few more junking treasures

i passed this by a few weeks ago at a thrift store (?) and have thought about it ever since. however i was feeling pretty accepting of the fact that it likely would be gone when i next had a chance to make the junking run. oh how glad i am to be wrong! it is just beautiful - and it's much larger than i recalled, too.



two (free!) floral vases




a chunk of burlap and an older receipt book with carbons intact:)




i do love this smelly little piece of cloth (what is that odor with burlap, anyway?)



faded and pretty old sheet music





i like both the sentiment and the colors, typography on this one




and i couldn't resist this one...it's perfect for display right now, i think.




a musty and crusty old "goode's school atlas"


now i'm off to do some cleaning and organizing. happy wednesday to you:)

I love all your finds! I pick up sheet music where ever I find it as long as it's reasonably priced. The spool of yard is really great too. Have a super day!

Like you, I love old music (some on my red, white and blue post) and I also have a huge old spool of cotton. The boys keep using it up for carft projects, and it seems endless!

Any plan for that big roll of string?
I have one too and just wondered if you were doing anything special with it.
I have a big spool of black too.

Guess we could just use them for what they are meant for.
Naw!! =0))
