A Long Time Ago aka Last Weekend

 Windows Explorer has categorized these photos as being taken "a long time ago" so I am apparently a little behind.  These treasures are from LAST weekend.    Windows Explorer needs to have a little patience.
Everything except the pile of t-shirts came from Division Street Antiques.  Gosh I love that place.  A leather suitcase for my collection for $7.
 They had a cigar box filled with MOP buttons waiting for me.  In cute little plastic boxes - bonus!
 I took the time to thumb through the stacks of vintage postcards and found some new rose cards for my collection, plus a few of those old sweetheart scenes.
I was delighted finding this set that tell a little story.  They haven't told me the story yet but I'll be ready when they do.
The t-shirts came from the VOA and they are fueling my latest project.  That will be another post, hopefully not from "a long time ago".

Oh my, if a week is a long time ago, then I have antique pictures waiting to be edited.

Love your finds, especially the suitcase.

Love your finds. I don't find old suitcases anymore. I actually have those sweetheart postcards too (they are some of my favorites). Nice score on the MOP buttons.

Those postcards are so sweet. I'm laughing at the first one, my crazy mind is thinking that it looks like he's pushing her out of the boat. What a deal on the suitcase and of course all those buttons are making my eyes bulge.

Not just buttons but mop buttons!! And a suitcase for $7. I would do a happy dance if I found a deal like that!
