COUNTRY ADVERTISING TREASURES

I thought I would share with you some of my country/vintage/antique advertising treasures.
Most of my milk bottles I have purchased at our local auction house.This chalk borad creemee advertisment I purchased at a yard sale for $5.00, yup five dollars.
This is one of my most favorite finds, ever! This tin I found in my father in law's basement. These coffee burlap sacks I have found at different flea markets, love these. This sign is from a box, someone took this off the box and then framed it.
My vintage peanut butter tin I found at a yard sale for free. The man said "you can just have that".
Thanks mister yard sale man!!
This is an antique receipe box I purchased at the auction. The box still had receipes in it.
I collaged a bunch of advertisments on it from a 1929 Good Housekeeping magazine.
I forget where I got this ice cream carton. Cute hah?
An old box. I love old boxes..
Vintage Quaker Oats round box.
My friend is visiting from New York state. The other day we took a road trip to Middlebury Vermont. We visited a bunch of wonderful little shops.
This little advertising box with wheat grass and a sweet little bird nest I purchased, I thought this was so darling.
Yesterday we were out exploring again. I found some of this wheat grass. I will be making up some different containers using the same concept as this little box.I hope you have enjoyed my advertising treasures.
I have linked up to the following parties and would like to thank all hostess's in advance.
Take a stroll around them, you just may find something that inspires you.
