Sweet Little Garage Sale Finds & a French Tote

Don't forget, today is the last day to enter my giveaway.  I'll draw a winner after 5 p.m. EST today.  Good luck!  And now on to some sweet little garage sale finds from this morning:
I couldn't resist these little books.  I don't know much about them but they were in just the shape I was looking for: old and shabby!  They were $1 each.  The little measuring cup was $.25 cents.  And here's the French tote I whipped up last night:
I bought the image off of Etsy for $1.  That's right, $1!  I printed it onto transfer paper, ironed it on, added the crown charm on some seam binding and voila!  I didn't do such a just great job on the bottom though - the transfer is lifting a little but I don't mind.  I'll still make great use of it!  Right now it's sitting at the top of our stairs near one of my favorite real dress forms.
Can't wait to hit more sales tomorrow!

Love the Bobbsey Twin books. The covers are great and I have wonderful memories of them from my childhood. They were vintage already then!
