treasures from the garage

A couple weekends ago we did a little spring cleaning in my garage.  Originally, I'll be honest, I was dreading that day.  I'd rather do almost anything to get out of cleaning.  But, this little cleaning spree surprised me.  It was actually kind of fun.  Not because of the cleaning of course.  But because of all the little treasures we found.

My daddy, well, God love him, he's a pack-rat.  So many of his old little things were tucked away here and there from our different moves and a few of them didn't surface again...until our spring cleaning over the weekend.  I was able to keep some of these treasures and they are now on display in my room.

Object for inspection #1:  I'm not even real sure what this is.  But I thought it was cool.  And after a little cleaning, it makes a real nice nifty little vase for my paper flowers.  And I didn't even have to go to a yard sale.  Booya!

Object for inspection #2:  There were several old books that I just absolutely fell in love with.  I was able to claim these two before the rest of my family had their pick.  "Count of Monte Cristo" and "The Motor Girls."

Object for inspection #3:  This radio is less than a foot long.  It's tiny and just so cute.  Even though I'm not sure if it works yet, I had to keep it.

Object for inspection #4:  When my dad first showed me this, it was just a stick and I had no idea what it was.  Then he unscrewed the bottom flipped it over, and tada! a table top tripod.  How cool!

What about you...have you discovered any new treasures lately?


  1. that table-top tripod is so cool. and have you read The Count of Monte Cristo before? ahh, one of my favorite books ever. I LOVE IT. =)
