okay, spring hasn’t sprung yet. i take it all back!! the wind was crazy today! cold and crazy. i went junkin early this morning and (don’t ask) found a way to get this super old table back to my house. my husband would have banned me from the ‘family’ car had he seen the way i drove the treasure home (only 1 block) in the back of our ‘good’ car. i need my husband’s truck on tues. mornings! it’s the bulk trash day around here and today wasn’t bad! had i more room, i could have dragged home a cute dresser (wood and painted white) and a low to the ground coffee table that would have converted nicely to a bench, 2 puppies, an oil well, 6 cows and a big texas hat…i’m embellishing a bit. but i do feel like easter is just around the corner and that means warm weather, projects and great easter finds….see below from my friend cindy…..
here is a pic of my finds. great old table i’ll paint white, mop buck i will paint pink and decoupage a copy of a vintage book illustration to and a plant/table stand….black iron…hhhmmm. possibly a great candle holder for a huge dining table or outdoor table. i may hang prisms from it and paint it white or pink. i’ll turn it the other way and put a vintage plate on it or painted terra cotta pot or something to put a candle in. we will see.
also, i painted a narrow wooden hanger pink and glued vintage buttons to it.
pic of my latest purse….love this and paid about 50¢ for it!!
and a pic of my latest back porch seating area…found the table in germany for 20 euros and the bistro chairs in germany for 7euros a piece. painted them pink. love them!
speaking of germany and euros, my junkin buddy cindy sent me current pics of her bling she’s recently found in some floh marts and junk stores in germany. LOVE her finds!!! cheap, vintage, cute and european!!! check them out…..
my favorites are these fab plates!! like 10 euro cents a piece!!! wow….love them!! cindy loves to junk…even with 5 kids and a very demanding, domestic schedule, she still manages to find the greatest stuff, make the cutest crafts and organize what she finds. i don’t know how she gets it all done. we often spent much time admiring each others ‘junk’ displays in our small german housing yards a year ago! her displays were always way more clever than mine were! the stuff we would find!! i wish i had pics of what we turned it into. we kept our little german quarters very interesting….gave the neighbors something to stare at…we were all guided by junk….very inspiring!!!!! thanks cindy!
okay…beddy bye time…the sandman is on his way…the wind will blow him in and then a girl’s gotta get some rest so she can keep on junkin…..
