Diggin' for a treasure

This past weekend I went to an indoor garage sale at a fairgrounds.  It was more like a flea market than a garage sale.  You know the kind.  It had a bunch of antiques, craft booths, belt booths, etc.  My husband had asked what I was looking to find.  I said, "An old milk carrier and anything that is old and really cool looking."  He didn't quite think that was an appropriate answer but that is what he got. 
Although I did find a milk jug carrier.  I felt it was too big as well as too pricey.  But just then, I spied something out of the corner of my eye and felt a little pater of my heart. 

Once I saw these, I just had to know the price.  $10 for all.  I said there mine!  I just love how chipped up they are.  I feel it gives them a sense of history. 

I now have a start for a new Easter vingette.
