Old Found Items...(lots of pictures)

Nice & rusty with an old key that was still attached
In the last few weeks I have been to a couple of barn sales & resale shops & I found some great stuff...at least they are great to me. Here are a few pictures of my finds:

A pretty old flat blue bottle & a white tea pot

An old catsup crate...(I call it ketchup:)

The side of the crate - great graphics!

T.A. Snider Preserve Co. Cincinnati OH

Old bottle with the label still on!! It says Ayer's Hair Vigor  for "restoring the natural vitality & color of the hair"

A collection of blue jars- Ball, Atlas & Mason. Can never have too many of these :)

Sterling silver napkin rings, telephone insulators (love the color) & a rusty old brush thing

Two old seltzer bottles- I want more but they're hard to find or too much money usually.

A great old loaf pan & a mercury glass candle. The pears are mine - I just covered them in old encyclopedia pages. 

The candle is actually from Pottery Barn, & never even used! The best part - I only paid a few bucks! Woo-hoo!
I love searching for old vintage treasures. It's so much fun because you never know what you will find!Photobucket

  1. Your finds are great to me too. I also call it ketchup. If I had to pick one favorite it would be the wire brush thing. I think it would look amazing with an old, black and white photo or two stuck in it. Simple and great.
