Junken Treasures

Found a treasure in my Mom's garage over the weekend. DH was hanging new garage doors for her and I went out to see how it was going when I spyed an old wallpaper book lying under a bunch of dirty screws, nails and other trash. I cleaned it off, opened it a crack and let a big spider crawl out of it, then bringing it to the light, I could see that some of the patterns were really cute and could be very useful in art pieces, etc. Bring out the razor blade!!!
I love the blue one with the little bouquets. It came in several colors too.

You just never know when a neat old treasure might be waiting to be discovered!

While out for the afternoon with 3 of my granddaughters, we stopped at a garage sale and I found some very neat old platters. I'll show you these tomorrow. I've been finding some pretty cool items of late. Our Goodwill just lowered their prices after much complaining by the public. I think when you can buy the item for less at Walmart, something is wrong, don't you? Hope you are all having a great week. Blessings, Linda
