Sunday junking: what I found

On Sunday I went junking and  here are my fabulous (but dirty!) finds.

These long trays are going to be great for organizing little bits and bobs. They aren't very deep -- maybe two inches -- but are quite long. 

Another two sewing machine drawers, that match two that I found on my birthday junking trip! I will probably fill these with more jars of glitter... or maybe buttons, or journalling cards?

An old milk crate! This one has a plastic bottom, but has great rust on the wire uppers. Love the variety in colours of metal and rust on this piece. 

A small divided tray. This one is maybe 8*10 inches? Love it. It is also exceptionally dirty.

Was thrilled to find this little box of vintage labels! It is chock full of those oval red-rimmed labels. I bought the box of rivets because I liked the monochromatic blue box. Not sure where those brass rivets will end up.

Vintage bobby pin cards! Tres chic!  ;)

A spiky receipt holder -- probably going to store washi tape rolls on this one! And I love this beautiful metal drawer pull. Pieces like this make digging through boxes of dirty, seized hinges and other junk totally worthwhile.

Keys! And clock hands! This little pile has got to be my favourite find of the day. Look out for more photos in the future, I really want to photograph these little babies up close 

More little glass bottles -- ink bottles, a toothpick jar, and some small perfume jars. 

A glimpse of the whole haul. The box on the right is a nice size box with lovely detail trim across the top. I believe it was actually a sewing machine cover, and would have fit over top of the machine, open side down.

Love those wooden boxes! I can't wait to see what paper treasures fill those boxes.
