More Auction Finds and Homemade Granola

Good Morning, dear friends

After a snowy weekend, the sun is shining for us today!

The Mexican Lasagna was a hit, will make it addition I made
a batch of Homemade Granola.

I'll post the recipe on my recipe page if anyone is interested.

It's yummy eaten plain, with yogurt, as a cereal

Here is some more of my Auction Finds...I haven't found homes for everything yet

This is the inside of the Wallpaper Chest
click picture to see better detail...covered with old newspaper...dated December 4, 1850

It's a little rough, but I love it as is...will only used for display anyway
I will re-do the leather hinges ...replaced with newer leather

Smalls...hardware, coffee tin & WIDE MOUTH zinc lids
excited to find bigger sized jar lids! 

Antique Slates
the larger one is hinged, opens up to 2 double sided slates

Wall Box

Hubby won't let me bring it in until I redo the seat, LOL

And cupboard 

again...hubby won't let it in the house til it's cleaned up
(he's not crazy about the paint color either, but it's staying...I may put a coat of walnut stain on it
to darken it up some)

Going to play with my new "toys" and do a bit of cleaning...

Blessings & Hugs,


  1. Goodmoring Traci~
    Love~ love the cupboard~ my favorite so far~

  2. OMG -- such great finds!! Love the newspaper from the inside of the trunk -- seems like that was the thing to do, as two trunks I received from my MIL are lined in it. The newspapers in those are not as old as your's, however.....
    Beautiful wicker chair!! Great old cupboard!! Love the wall box, too!! What a great outing you had.....
    Going over now to check out the granola recipe! Have a good day.....

  3. Oh wow! You found a lot of great items!!! Love that cupboard!!!

  6. Hello Traci-
    I would be interested in your Granola Recipe. How yummy!!
    Love all your new finds. I didn't know the zinc lids came bigger. How sweet is that? Love the cupboard also.
    And the slates are sooo cool. I've been looking for some of those, no such luck. You sure came across some wonderful goodies.
    Happy Valentine's Day!!

  7. Oh, oh, I don't know what I love the best. I think the blue cupboard and the wicker rocker. You've got some fabulous
    treasures but I don't need to tell you that!

  8. I'm so jealously of your finds! I love everything old!!! You had some great finds especially love that old newspaper!!

  9. wonderful finds! Love the cupboard.

  10. Sweet trunk covered in that old paper. I think I like the way they wrote their obituaries in 1850. Poor gal, was only 35.
    I have to agree with your hubby on the cleaning ;O)

  11. You really did score on this auction - wow! That cupboard is GORGEOUS!!! Love the slates and the wall box too....Lucky gal you are (but I think you already know that!) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
