Treasure Hunting

Last Friday my oldest daughter Ashley and I spent the entire morning hunting down treasures at local garage sales and thrift stores.  During our treasure hunt we found so many amazing things and had so much fun hanging out together.  At our first garage sale; I picked up a hardcover book The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks from a cardboard box and handed it to her as her eyes filled with excitement.  Then shortly after we got into the car in she opened up the book shocked to find it signed by the author himself Nicholas Sparks.  Crazy, we purchased an autographed hard cover book for a dollar.  We found a vintage sewing box, old soap dishes, an old suitcase, a watch, vintage ice bucket just to name a small number of our cherished finds.
On this post you will find photos of a few of our newest prized possessions.
