We did some antiquing on our vacation this year.
( A rainy day and a really cold day helped.)
I loved this old barn and the treasures that it held.
Loved the collection of old bottles
and outboard motors
and license plates, too.
This old house sits at the top of a hill in the town of Spooner.
What a grand house it must have been back in the day...
Here are the treasures that came home with me.
(And yes, that is Peanut on the right.
He always needs to help when he sees that I am going to take a picture.)
I already have ideas for future creations with some of these items.
I loved the hexagon shaped sewing basket and the little treasures found inside - including an old hair pin, a Cracker Jack ring with a green heart shaped stone, a calendar reminder of Flag Day (the day we adopted our pups) with a USO flag pin and a Sunday School attendance pin.
Can you believe that the little sewing basket and its treasures was $1?!?
My mom, sister and I always used to say we can't pass up anything for a dollar!
It was such a lovely vacation and I like to share that in some small way with you.
So here is a little giveaway:
This giveaway is for a fat quarter of pretty butterfly fabric from the quilt show, a fat quarter of the Wisconsin shop hop fabric that I picked up at River's Edge, a little square of plaid wool from Willow Wood Market, a spool and button hook picked up while antiquing and a little flower penny kit picked up at Woolkeeper - an adventure that I haven't shared yet ;)
Simply leave a comment on this post or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Giveaway" in the subject line. Since the most comments that I received from my vacation posts were about the pie in the first post, tell me... What is your favorite kind of pie???
I will pick a random winner on Wednesday, August 17th.
Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes.
