It's Old Stuff Day!!!

Who da thunk it!!! A whole day dedicated to the celebration of OLD STUFF! We in Bloglandia have known for a very long time what a national treasure there is in old barns.....garages.....basements......attics.......closets...
just waiting to be found.....restored, repurposed, renewed. In celebration of OLD STUFF DAY here is a pictorial salute...............................................................
                                       These are some old things in my kitchen
 





 This is a vintage stamped for embroidery tablerunner I completed and have for sale on my website
 This vintage apron is one I hand-embroidered. It's available for $19.99
I took this pic in the garden next to the old child's wheelbarrow filled with heirloom sedum taken from my Grandma's house..she planted it in the 40's







This is a vintage tray and coasters from the 60's
Old landscape

vintage embroidery Transfers
Vintage Religious card














and Postdard

 Old stuff in a dining room cubby

And, old aluminum and glass stuff over the dining room window

This is just a little of my OLD STUFF. Just things I've picked up over the last 40 years..LOL..I started when I was....10! The best thing about old stuff it was either given to me by folks who didn't want it anymore or was purchased for only a few dollars.......who says you can't decorate on a dime. It might be old stuff, but it cleans up real good.
Now let's visit the Thrifty Groove for her party

Your house must be filled with treasures. You have a great hobby hunting for stuff. I love the green apron. It's so spring ready.
I know what you mean about making wallpaper with My Memories. There's just so much stuff to play with!
Happy March!
