Vintage Black Friday ... No.01

Hello all and welcome to the first Vintage Black Friday ... I'm glad you are here! I think almost everyone seems to think finding Black items to share will be a challenge, honestly ... I felt the same way...until I started looking around and digging a bit. I believe I have mentioned in the past that I have ROOMS full of "treasures" ... you know, an Oprah episode waiting to happen. Well, needless to say I think I have found plenty of items to sustain me through out the challenge ... and hey, if I run out's a good excuse to go shopping/hunting, right? Right?

First up ... a recent find, a small collection of vintage printer's stamps. My two favorite groupings are the J&H {my initials} and the X & O ... how sweet!

Second this old German dictionary ... the worn cover and pages have such a rich texture and the type set is gorgeous ~ so "fancy" looking, I'm sorry this picture doesn't do them justice.

And third ... here are some vintage cameras I found last week, they don't work, they don't open, and I really don't know a thing about them ... but used in a fall vignette? Instant perfection!

That's it! ... I had to stop myself from posting too many pictures off the bat, now I'm off to blog hop and see what all of you have lurking in your rooms full of treasures ... thanks again for playing along!
