Fun finds Friday: a few vintage pieces for storage and use

Hi everyone!
Here are a few more recent vintage finds!

Two new drawers! Love the top one with the original painted description and old book plate and label. And the bottom one is all metal -- and so industrial. And SO DIRTY! The guy who sells this stuff doesn't believe in cleaning. I snapped these photos as soon as I brought these things in the house, I should have cleaned them first, I guess! 

A set of old books. The Story of the Great War -- the diplomatic version. Love that. I guess the previous version wasn't diplomatic? These are going to make great mini albums! 

Assorted small bits. Some (used, and dirty) metal letter stencils. Lost earrings. Some travel themed stereo viewer cards -- about half are sites in the US and the other half are international places and places of religious significance. They will be great in vacation and travel albums. :)

Anyone planning on going thrifting/junking this weekend? 
What are you on the lookout for?

For more photos... of kids, cats, coffee cups and scraps...  and daily peeks at my desk and my life... follow me on Instagram.
