...You never know what you're gonna get!
I was skulking around an estate sale today when I spied this metal chest with little drawers full of colors and textures.
Things got even better when I saw this on the top....the two most beautiful words in the English language:
So I did...I offered $5 to the gal in charge. She said "Sure!" Her family was clearing out Grandma's house and she was practically giving stuff away. I made myself wait until I got home to see what was inside my little treasure chest. Some of it was fab! Like...
Old spun cotton mushrooms, angel matches and a deer's head,
Tiny vintage pastel bells, a miniature Frenchy shoe,
hat pins and vintage Dennison labels. There was also some stuff I wasn't so thrilled about. Like:
An old pacifier and nail clippers,
and packages of golfing tees from Reno. Wait...is that a metal thimble? Oooooo...I'll throw that in my sewing box!
