summer treasure hunting...

I took some time off from soaking up some sun by the lake on Saturday to do some summer treasure hunting for my booth and my Etsy shop.

That means the campground was sold out and my the beach was going to be very crowded.

Want to see what I found?
I think I might have trouble parting with some of these treasures.

I have big plans for this chalkboard...

Hope I don't fall too in love with it.

I found this old wire dish rack to display some plates in my booth...
This one definitely gets a NFS tag.

These two white chippy pieces may have to just stay right here on my summer porch...

Love the color on this old oil can...
It might look cute on the shelf over my squeaky porch door!

I found this old sign and instantly fell in love...
Definitely a keeper...for now!

I also found a few old books...
I am thinking ahead to Halloween...
And Christmas...
Love the color of this old book from the 1800s...
As well as this one...

All so hard to part with.

I can hear Jim now...one thing in, two things out.
Silly rule.
Isn't summer a good time to break the rules?

Guess I should have stayed at the beach...
Those rules are easier to follow.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy your week!

Must have been hard to leave that beautiful beach to go hunting for treasures...what pond is your camp on? My friend was on Sandy Pond in Plymouth and I have great memories spending time there in HS!

Susan said...

Oh, what treasures you found Sandi! I wouldn't part with that plate holder, either. Time well spent away from that beckoning beach...

Yep! I would say they are all keepers. While everyone else loves the white stuff -- I love that red oil can. It would definitely fit in with my surroundings. Be a rebel! :) Have a great week. Tammy
