Jackpot

I sadly didn't make it to Brimfield last week, but I was still able to find lots of treasures...

Old stamps

Victorian die-cuts. Tons of them. I nearly fainted when I open the box!

Christmas ornaments ~ gorgeous colors!

A 1943 scrapbook FULL of sweet baby cards

FANTASTIC old photos ~ these are amazing! REALLY love these.

And possibly my favorite find...

A flocked velvet jewelry box in perfect condition.

My Mom used old ornaments like that - glued them onto a grapevine wreath. It's gorgeous all year round.

Wow, I love everything you found! I recently came across some great old snapshots of babies and I've had so much fun looking at them. I like the view of other things in the photos, like the toys, furniture, and clothing of the time. Thanks for sharing your treasure trove with us!
