New Treasures

My Aunt Betty and I went to an estate sale yesterday and I picked up a few things. I love these baskets, they're big, chunky, and very old. And I can never seem to have to many of these old Ball Jars with the glass lids.
This is my biggest bargain, a $3 rocking chair. It's old and sturdy. The seat needs to be recovered, but that's an easy fix. I'm planning on putting it in my bedroom. In the seat is a really pretty tablecloth I got for one dollar.
I saw this in the house and asked how much. One dollar. When I got it, it was black. When they handed it to me, I could tell it was heavy and not just blackened tin. What a nice little treasure was underneath the grime! I still need to finish cleaning it, but wanted to go ahead and show you.
And you know I couldn't resist getting at least one cookbook. I was so excited to find this one. Each recipe uses a cake mix or brownie mix as its base. There are some really great looking things for me to try. You know I'll pass along my favorites.

I also got a couple more books. I think that was it.

Not a bad haul for $10.
