I found the old medicine bottle in the ground in front of the shed.
The owners dad found the shoe/boot in the house and gave it to me.
Look at these beautiful pieces of pastel moldings. STUNNING!
And more JUNK treasures!

Im very inspired by whiteys4 post about her grandmas piano.
I will try to make a few things out of this piano.
Wish me luck!

AWESOME TREASURES I have found on the outside and inside of an 1892 home.
I'm still picking through LOTS more.
Check out the old moldings.  The details and colors are so beautiful!
I should of wore some depends cause I almost peed myself from excitement! He! He!

Hope you enjoy the photos of these old BEAUTIFUL treasures.

suewhitney writes: OK... you crack me up. I think you're on to some thing! I think you should market a line of depends for junkers because we've all had this feeling when coming upon a treasure trove. You're screen name is a perfect brand name. Dumpster Diving Diva Depends...protection made strong enough for a junker!! Ah, hahaha! Seriously, love your loot. The molding is to die for cool. Have fun!

Be Well,
