Last Weekend's Treasures

 Talk about screeching in just under the wire!  I'm just barely getting last weekend's goodies posted before a new weekend is upon us.  Very, very slammed at the big girl job this week so it screamed by and unlikely I will get out for any junking this weekend.  Last weekend was one estate sale and enough goodies to keep me busy for a while. 
 At least you get to see these all cleaned up instead of my usual pig-pile on the table!  You know I collect aluminum "baskets".  I usually just stick to those to keep the collection under control but I couldn't resist this little crumb set.  I haven't decided if it is headed for Etsy or if I'll keep it for myself.
 I love the vintage graphics on the cover of this little scrapbook.  It is marked 1947 and even has a few photos inside it.  It includes templates that you could trace onto the back of the pictures and then cut them into shapes. Very early scrapbooking!
This is a close-up of the cover on the 1965 Shell Craft booklet.  We got a new macro lens for the camera so this was my first try to see just how close I could get it to focus.  Close enough that you can see the age on the paper - LOL!  Not everything should get a close-up shot!

OH! Look at that scrapbook cover! I love it. I also love how this whole post coordinates so well with your blog's theme! The crumb sweeper -- I think you should keep it. Those are getting so hard to find and so expensive when you do!

What fun finds! I'm so jealous you got a macro lens but I do hope you have fun with it!

Thanks for the very kind comment on my blog.

Have fun playing with your new camera lens. Perfect for shooting all of your treasures!

Oh I love your pile of goodies. Really like those little bottles and I'd be saying the same thing with the aluminum crumb set. Great stuff as always.

Great finds. I can't wait to go to some seasonal yard sales myself for some much wanted goodies..
Thanks for stopping by my Crayola Crayon post. I loved the big boxes, too.
Have a great week.
