Notes from the past

Our friend Brodie is closing out a house and invited me and a few friends over to shop.

We were all super charmed by the notes that were on TONS of items. I'm not sure why she labeled everything, but I loved reading the notes.

The photos are terrible due to lighting, but here were some of my favorites. I discovered the below one when I picked up the Santa plate and discovered the paper behind it:

Fascinating, don't you think?? We loved finding them all over the house!

Can't wait to show you all the things I picked up from this estate! I love giving items a second life by saving them from the dump!

  1. oh my goodness would have LOVED sorting through all of that...what fun!

  2. Wow!! Hello, those notes are SO cool! She must have been way organized to do all of that.

  3. I love it! I wish MORE things had little explanatory notes on them (would save us collectors a lot of head scratching!).

  4. oh my gosh.... so sweet! the mama's sewing machine made me tear up!

  5. Oh how fun! I can't wait to see what you brought home!
