And the winner is....
Anyway, here are some of my finds...
Miniature picnic basket, minus the handles...
but... its whats inside that counts!!!
I LOVE this decanter and glass set!!!! I have absolutely no use for it or anywhere to display it but I am keeping it. I just fell in love with it right away. Love the silver bling!
Thought these would look cute in a baby's room - double sided records!
Big box of old ties...can't wait to make more burnt flowers with these!
Old foot locker...no handles anymore, but still in great shape
Not sure what that is stuck to the inside of the lid but I was able to get it off with the garden hose!
Little wooden box, perfect for hanging on the wall with some dried flowers in it!
washboards...a few of them need a little work...
another old box...
Beautiful waste basket!
Great little stand..
Baby bassinet painted mint green...how sweet! I think this would be perfect full of red geraniums!
BIG old flag...
A couple of old milk coolers - again, these would look good with some red flowers in them!

The next item is pretty seasonal, but it is one of my favorite creations. I have made tons of these with all the odd enamel lids that I find. These are definitely some of my best sellers. Look for a few in my booth id you come to Bonanza!

DH and I went for a drive last Sunday afternoon and ended up at my parents' farm. My dad just happened to be there when we stopped. I don't get over there very often, but when I do I always nose around to see what I can find. I ended up taking home the following items...
These double folding chairs
Not sure what these are...kind of look like galvanized gutters but they are much shorter and wider
An old rusty copula...I will be keeping this and putting in a flower bed somewhere...
the labeling on the copula...
These weren't in the barn but in the "shack" that my dad sells grilled burgers, hot dogs, etc out of at the Kalona Sale Barn. I was given instructions NOT to sell them! I am not and never have been a Pepsi drinker ( Coke all the way), but do love the great color on these.
Dad also asked if I wanted this print...I thought why not??? You never know, someone might really like it!
Awesome galvanized funnel...
More galvanized stuff!!!!
Love this washtub! I think that I am keeping it for myself! There was another one, but not in as good of shape, with a lid. The guy that ended up with it did not want it because several items had been out together and he just wanted the buck saw in the pile. He approached me later and told me that I could have it. UNFORTUNATELY, I didn't have room in the Trailblazer. I don't know why I didn't claim it and then go back and get it today! Duh!
Some odd & end croquet stuff and a pink wicker cradle...
Not sure what this is...it was FREE, so I couldn't let it go. The guy who got it didn't want it and had seen me looking at it earlier and asked me to take it....Any ideas of what it is???
It opens....AND is heavy!
Not totally sure what these are, either ~ some kind of towels for industrial use?? Does anyone know how old they might be??
LOVE THIS!! Tons of HAND-WRITTEN recipes!!!!!! Someone must have put a lot of work into this!
Not a great picture, but a cute little satin baby dress....this and tons of other stuff was found in the bottom of boxes that I bought! That is the best part of auctions ~ sometime you never know what you're going to get!
