Rust and Stuff

I found a mixture of rusty, metal and not-so-perfect stuff last weekend. All my finds did have the same theme: they each cost me $5.00. First up are these lovely finds.

I was super glad I didn’t when the next morning on my way to Austin’s house I stopped at an unexpected garage sale and found this lovely milk box with a $5.00 price tag on it. It was also in much better shape than the one I left at the tag sale. Score!

Anderson Erickson is a local large dairy company located in Des Moinse, Iowa. By the way, I just got done enjoying some of their yummy chip dip.

Now back to the basket. Isn’t it like a rusty piece of art? The metal name plate is my favorite part and you are able to read the company name, “Foxbilt”.

My last find I have to share is this old serving tray. It does have some old moisture stains along the top of the picture under the glass, but the flaws are fine with me.

Hope you found some treasures this weekend!
