  15. Great finds - I like the old jello molds. We've found so many things over the years - DH is a collector of old toys & games and I like to use old stuff on my layouts, recently picked up an old hymnal that was falling part & planning to use the pages on layouts.

  16. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am in love with your finds, and I'm sure you had a wonderful time finding each and every one of them. The spools are my favorite. They are simply awesome and I wouldn't have been able to pass them up either.

  21. Beautiful photos, great staging. Florida has some wonderful "junk" stores. To find them you have to ask the person at the local dinner, the barber, at the local grocery store. LOL.

    Your thread on spindles reminds me of my job
    When I was newly married (19). I worked in a cotton factory and these were the spindles that was used. Times have sure changed.
