New (Old) Treasures

I picked up a few goodies at a garage sale:

Old sewing basket with a few goodies still inside, including a bone thread winder, old tatting tools and thread, sheet music, 100-year-old French postcards, old reel to reels (I plan to use the boxes; Husband may have a plan for the reels), and a bag of Christmas tree candle clips. I also bought an old shipping crate that I plan to dress up for Christmas.

My biggest surprise was inside the tatting box - I found an old Marines uniform button. I'm trying to determine if it's from the Civil War or WWI. Either way, it's worth a lot more than the $1 I paid for the box full.

I'm already working on some Christmas goodies, so I'll be posting projects soon.

You must check out this new book "The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt" by Caroline Preston, she has a blog, and its full of vintage stuff.
