I went treasure hunting the other day and around the third stop I finally scored.
I couldn’t believe all the goodies I found. (all for only $10.50)
Here are a few of the treasures I found.
- Red Toile Cup, Saucer and Dinner Plate from England
- Vintage Sheet Music from 1911
- McGuffey’s Alternative Reader from 1837
- Webster’s Notebook that read Waverly Mason Diary dated 1921
- Vintage Inspired Paris Map with the price tag on the back.
I was a little disappointed when I opened up the Diary and found that it wasn’t
full of juicy gossip. Instead it is full of pasted old recipe clippings.
Now I can learn how to make Cream of Celery Soup, Chocolate Surprise Pudding,
Christmas Fruit Cake, Mrs. Moody’s Wonder Cake and so much more.
Who knows I might even try one of those recipes one day.
I picked up the sheet music with the idea of framing them. (since I don’t have a piano anymore)
I picked up the vintage frame at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago for a quarter.
All I need is a piece of glass and I’m ready to hang.
My son asked as I laid the frame over top the sheet music if I bought them together.
Sometimes things just work out perfectly.
When I told my son this was a song about coming back from the war.
He asked me “Vietnam?” I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. (I shook my head instead)
