Old Is Gold

I love old things. I am sure you can tell that by now. I love to collect presidential items and have started picking up a few old postcards, but the nicest surprise came from a dear friend when she sent me this beauty of
a card she found at a local shop near her.   

The card was sent in 1920 to a recipient in the town my friend actually lives in.

Though I love my old treasures, I use them if I can.


I found this old grain sifter, a real conversation piece, as no one knows what it is.

I love old postcards and picked up some vintage ones at Mount Vernon with Washington on them so I enjoyed seeing yours!

I would use that as a 4th of july decoration. I really like it I display my post cards in flower frogs.
What a nice friend.

Nothing like the old and vintage to bring out the wonderful :)

Me and my father love old pieces too. We believe that each vintage stuff has long and memorable stories to tell.

My husband found one of those old sifters for me and I love it. I just have it on my porch, have never done anything special with it. Maybe I should try using it at a frame?

Me again:) I am watching a new show on TLC called Extreme Couponing (or something like that) and I thought of you. Have you seen it? Even my husband is saying "Maybe you should..."!

What a great find that is. And what a great friend to send it to you :). I love old things too, there is so much history.
