More Fun Finds and a Giveaway Win!

I haven't been to a lot of garage sales this week as it has been pretty rainy around here, so thought I'd share a few more finds from last week's picking adventure!  I love this old laundry basket with it's aluminum stand and strawberries liner...

How about this chippy white metal first aid kit...

and this great vintage steaks tin~ I love the green color...

and this wonderful big handmade metal scoop with wood handle...

We found this old candy bar box...I'm amazed at the great condition...

I love the wooden stand for strawberry baskets~ I have some old wooden berry baskets that will replace the plastic ones...

This wood folk art spool holder will look great holding some old spools...

There was this great old cabin painting...

and a sweet framed "baby shoes" poem that will look charming next to old baby shoes...

My favorite find this week was an online purchase that I found for a great price~ this early bingo cage with bakelite legs~ it is very rustic with a great industrial look!  It came with 135 wood bingo balls and some wonderful cards~ this piece is staying with ME!

In other news...I won a great giveaway from Kat of Low Tide High Style ~ a WONDERFUL blogging friend!  I won this BEAUTIFUL sea glass necklace she offered from Frosted Trash !  I just love it~ thank you so much!!  Also yesterday, my daughter and I went to the Bachman's Summer Ideas House!  There were so many great ideas, I hardly know where to start posting... I'll share with you starting my next post!    If you haven't seen the Spring Ideas House, I did 6 posts full of ideas...there's a link on my sidebar to start that tour!

I am linking to Debbiedoos Garage Salen Party

Until next time...

  17. Linda,
    Oh my! Those are great finds. The laundry basket is a fav. But I really love the big scoop! I am going to Australia for a month......maybe I will find some goodies I can bring back!

    Smiles, alice

  18. I love the candy sign and the baby poem, I could see using that at the showers I do. I love the bingo ball twirler thingy, too. Lezlee

  19. You made out super good. WOW. Thanks for your sweet response to my yard post. Knowing my children, it will be years before they think about grandkids. Plus none of those kids of mine want to live in the midwest (where they've grown up). But really -- what do they know????

  20. Great finds!! We have had too much rainy weather on the weekends for good yard sales. Another rainy Sat. today. Sad. Love that post on the barn quilts. We built a little shed and I'm thinking it might be just the thing for it. On a smaller scale of course. Hopefully sometime this summer we'll be able to have some good weather to make it out to the yard! Mimi
