Recently, my beau and I have been going to junk shops, antique shops, flea markets, etc..I have found some great stuff..some is to decorate my scraproom..some items are just for me cause I like them.

I have a tattoo on my right upper thigh / is World War I dog tags..they are of my great great uncle..this is what he would have worn on his uniform..I have found some military stuff so I am collecting it so I can make a shadow box..that will be a project later to be shown, once I find all the pieces..still need 3 more pieces..

Found an old album..full full of pics, dating back to 1870's..just incredible and I will post more about this later.

 I have printer excited about this. One will go in my living room with stuff to find later to put in it..and one will go in my scraproom..
 This is an empty pocket watch from 1904..there is a really neat we think added by the owner engraving of a homestead on there.
 More military badges for my collection..
 AND THIS IS MY FAVOURITE FIND..$25 it works..needs a little work to make it work better..but based on the serial number this typewriter is from 1920..this will be on display in my scraproom.
 And I am just left handed and this is fun!


  1. What great finds! I love to go to auctions and estate sales. I also found a printers tray last year at a garage sale, you will love it!

  2. I would give just about anything for that printers tray !!!!

  3. Love all your treasures! I love to go to antique stores and flea markets and shop around! So much fun!
