Some Fun Finds...

This week, On Valentine's Day, my husband suggested we go do a little treasure hunting!  Sounded like a great Valentine's date to me!
We found some vintage sheet music, as well as this old music book appropriately entitled "Harmony", and a couple of old camp meeting music booklets...

In the craft area, I found five packages of rub on transfer letters in different fonts- 39 cents each!

Lots of trims...

and a great old mirror!  The glass is tarnished and beveled, and I love the unusual square shape!

Look at this great old handmade toy fort~ the roof is made of popsicle sticks!  I love the folk art feel of this!

This spice rack was a great find!  The labels peeled off easily...

and now it is being used in my studio to hold glitters I've been collecting...

Hope you had some fun finds this week, too!

I am linking up to A La Carte's Junkin Finds Friday

Until next time...


  1. That sounds like a great date to me! I love the spice jars full of glitter! As usual, you found some wonderful things and I always enjoy seeing what great things you find!


  2. Fabulous finds! What a great way to share Valentine's Day on a treasure hunt! Love the old spice jars for glitter! Have a great weekend!

  3. Linda,
    Great finds! I love the trims and the spice rack...great way to store something as difficult to contain as glitter. There's nothing more fun than a day of treasure did well!

  4. Sounds like a honey of a day! I'm eyeing your glitter station!

  5. Love your finds! That log cabin is quirky and so cool! What are your plans? It could make a really fun holiday vignette. Spice rack is perfect for your glitter.

  6. Wish I could get my hubby to go on treasure hunts - simply not his thing. Great finds and like the idea for the spice jars...

  7. My husband and I had the same date yesterday Linda!~ I love that your hubs tags along too. My husband actually likes it. You scored some great you always do. XO

  8. My husband and I are inveterate collectors together. In fact we've had to declare a moratorium on it for awhile especially after our last trip it's starting to overflow!

    I always seem to like your taste in collecting as you know.
    xoxo Kim

  9. Sounds like the best Valentine's date ever! As always, you found great stuff!!
    Have a great weekend.

  10. Oh, the sweet finds on sweethearts day, Linda! I fell for the mirror, love the beveled mirrors. Vintage ones are hard to come by. And the camp song books, Lincoln log fort, what a fun day. Thanks for the tour.

  11. See now, this is why I blog, I think if I were to tell my local friends that I had a rack for my glitter they would smile, nod their heads, and back away slowly. But here we smile, nod our heads, and exclaim "Oh, what a fantastic idea!"

    Love your new guest room, can't wait to see what other goodies you add.

  12. Linda,
    Sounds like a Hot date to me!!
    Great finds. I like the letters and spice rack. My glitter stash needs organizing.

  16. I think you better hang on to that husband of yours for suggesting the perfect date!!! Once again, great finds but I love that cute little fort! Was probably someone's school project, fun indeed!! Smiles, Julie

  17. Fun stuff! You know I had my eye on that trim!!!

  18. I love treasure hunting! Some days I walk out empty handed but not very often! There always seems to be something that I just didn't know I couldn't live without. lol
