Junkin' with the MIL

Hubby's folks were just down for a few days and mine and my MIL's favorite pastimes when we are together are junk store shopping, antiquing,oh and eating pie !!! Eating pie is very important! Sometimes we find treasure sometimes we don't ,it's all about the hunt really! Here are a couple of treasures I found...

This cast iron black cat doorstop...



I  just found this cat too cool to pass up and it was on sale! Besides, cast iron doorstops go great in old houses,right? One of the other great treasures I got for just a dollar and I am tickled pink by them...







A box of vintage note cards!  It has 4 different designs...                                                                                                                                                                             

 



 






 



 


OK,I don't really think they are "vintage"  but they are old and for just a $1 I consider them treasure for sure! I looked up the company and they started in 1950 so I know they can not be older than that and I doubt they are that old, more likely the 60's or 70's. I really hate to date any thing from the 70's as old...ahemm... seeing as I was born in '71 one! It is funny how a neat little thing for just a $ can make a persons day!

So very cute! I'm at the point that I wish the 60s weren't vintage.

I love looking for just those same treasures...and especially with someone who also enjoys it too! Makes for great memories! Funny how I can relate the smallest finds with the day and Who I was with and Where we went! Any other day is just ordinary! :)
