The Treasure Hunt is Over

My treasures have all been unpacked and distributed around the house now.
The dishwasher is full of all the vintage planters that I bought and they should be scrubbed clean soon.
The washing machine is working away on a small pile of linens, hopefully they will be less stained today.
The vintage christmas ornies are packed with many others now, I will be starting on my christmas crafting soon.
My garden is happy to have some more rusty crusty adornments.
Here is a shot of the whole lot.
The entire haul!

We shopped our way to the WLYS, and we shopped our way home from the sale.  We both found treasures at the sale and along the way.

I was really hoping to find boxes and boxes of vintage christmas ornies but that just wasn't the case.  What I did find was decent though.

I found a few nice pieces of old jewelry but I wish I had found more.

I really practiced restraint when it came to vintage linens.  I need more vintage fabric like I need a hole in the head.  Truly.
So that is a quick over view of my treasures.  I will brag   blog in greater detail about what I got in the next few days and I will let you know what my absolute favorite find was.
I know that Beth is planning to do the same, so stay tuned.


  1. What a little hole in the head if it means more vintage fabric? Looks like quite the haul you have there.

  2. Looks like a nice amount of fun things. I have a photo of my 'haul' on my blog today and will start to do posts on groups of items this week. Glad you had a good time.

  3. Hi Suzy! I popped over from Beth's blog to see your haul. I'm here in Cincinnati, Ohio and the 127 goes right thru Cincy, but doesn't even do anything for it :( Ohio doesn't do much of anything :P If ya had gone down a little further to Chattanooga Tn at I-40 and come up ya mighta had better pickins, but beleive me where you were was good. Some day I hope to get down below Chattanooga they say that's the best. It took years for the longest to be as good as it is..hopefully Ohio will catch on.

  4. How exciting! I feel like a kid in a candy store when checking out your pictures! I wouldn't be able to resist these things, either! Just ask my husband who calls my craft studio, "the closet". :)

  5. Suzy - I'm so glad you found me (you left a comment on MY blog Oh how I wish I'd known about YOUR blog before now! I have lots of reading to catch up on your blog. What a FANTASTIC 50th bday project! May have to borrow your idea:) I turn 50 in 2.5 years and I've always wanted to do this! HOpe you have a great day, Cindy.


Thanks for checking up on "the project"! I love to hear from my readers and if you've been to the WLYS be sure to let me know. If you've provided an email link in your blogger account, you will be hearing back from me! xo, Suzy
