Favorite Finds

I was going to join Holly for Thrifty Thursday, but it wasn't there. I will join if she adds it today.  Blogger is not cooperating so I had to settle for the pictures that I was able to load, and it took these quite a while. On to some fun finds! I had planned not to attend any sales this weekend since I was having one of my own. I had called a friend who told me about this Estate Sale, and she was sure that I wouldn't want to miss it. Needless to say she was right, and I definitely wish I had been there earlier. They had some great things that had already sold at fantastic prices. Here are the few little things that I picked up.

Check out all these old buttons! I picked up the pressed glass dish as a gift.
Can't wait to start some projects so I can use these.

I loved these old buttons still on the cards.

Yet another favorite thing!! Old wooden spools of thread.
Lots of them! About 75 in all. Based on what I have seen on etsy and ebay
$5 for all was a bargain!

These cute little spools were in there too.

A little closer look at those vintage hankies.
Remember that little project that I posted about? Well some of these items are going to make wonderful additions.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week. It has been a busy week so posting has been slow, and my little Blog Patroler told me that it was time for a new post, so here you have it.

What wonderful finds. I wonder . . . where you could put these to good use?!?!?!?

Oh wow! I love all the buttons and spools!

You asked about the washclothes. Do you knit or crochet? Mine are crocheted, and they are super easy to make. And quick. I love a quick project! I have a pattern. If you're interested, I could send it to you!

Look at all those treasures! How fun! I especially like all of the buttons. I've been on the lookout for buttons too as I want to display some in a glass jar I have. You'll have to show us what you end up doing with yours.
