Treasure Hunting...FREE Finds

My dear friend over at inspired this post.  Her knack for finding amazing deals and items at garage sales and thrift stores always amazes me.
In honor of her "Garage Sale Treasure" link up post I thought I'd post about my surprizing day of "free" treasures!

Our library always has a free box and in this box I found three books and a puzzle...Chicken Soup for Mother's Soul, 100 piece Wizard of Oz puzzle, The Book of Lost Tales One and Two.  I thought these were a great find and was satisfied with my "treasure hunting" for the day.  I bet your local library has a free box and I would encourage you to look in there. 
"Grandma" Rose knows my weakness for chocolate and always slips something special in our packages.
After a day of fun with a friend I arrived home to discover that we had been blessed beyond belief...a lady we call "Grandma" Rose has "adopted" our little family and she is always shopping for her thrift and Goodwill stores.  When I arrived home there sat boxes of toys, kites, scooters (that had not even been out of the box yet), and four (yep four) bags of clothing!  It was like Christmas!  There were so many things on my summer "treasure hunting" list. 

What a great day of "free treasures".  Hope your treasure hunting this summer goes well and that you will be blessed with things you didn't even know you needed!

Happy Hunting!
