Loot in my mailbox

Would you like to come along as I open this wonderful box of loot from the very talented Pam at Fairy Rocks and Things?  Pam has the most beautiful studio (see link on her right side bar) where she collects all kinds of wonderful junk and paper, just like me.  She recently shared a special treat with one of her readers, and I won!
I love that old Montgomery Ward's tag.  See the tea stained bag that the rusty botttle caps came in? Well, read this little note from Pam.
How fun! The bags she sent are real vintage geologists bags that her father used as he gathered samples in the Rocky Mountains on horseback. 

I'm crazy for that large locket and this old ice cream wrapper.  Aren't they so cool?!  Here's a great shot of all the loot I received. I"m overwhelmed by all my new treasures. Thank you, Pam!
I hope you had a great weekend. I'll be back soon! Have a great week. xoxo
