A little bit of Junk & a Reminder...

Finally. . . some much needed JUNK!!! I can honestly say that it feels like I have stopped at 100 yard sales . . . 97 of them were not worth the gas to get there! I don't know if any of you are having trouble finding any good JUNK, but around here it is slowing down! I was about ready to throw in the towel and call it an end to the yard sales for this year when I found one worth stopping at!

I picked up this great vintage door, complete with original hardware! Woo Hoo! Then I found the loverly blue bench, that is about 7' long! I love the chippyness of it :) The next two items in the photo made my little heart go pitter old Victorian lamp shade frame and a piece of vintage bead board! I picked up everything very CHEAP! Yes, I'm doing the happy dance :)

I picked up these little jewels this morning at a yard sale advertising "antiques". I love the three vases, especially the two white ones. I will probably put the blue one in the bathroom. And the roosters I will add to the ones I already have. Since I have more than 3 roosters, I can safely say I have a collection! :)

Here is the best part......I bought the vase on the left at a fantastic price and the gentleman having the sale said he would give me the one on the right for FREE because it had a chip! Ever heard of turning it around so the chip doesn't show?? LOL, that's what I will be doing with it :)

These next two items were bought brand new, I couldn't resist. . . adding to my collection of roosters. . . and both were 40% off!! Their original price was good but I won't complain about the better price!!

The candelabra I will paint black for the Halloween.

These loverly jewels were purchased at the thrift store. I LOVE the pear bowl and ceramic pear!! The big white bowl, frame and two plates were from one of my favorite stores and also 40% off !! and you can't see it but the plate in back has a rooster in the center of it!!! I admit it I love roosters!

Close up of my beautiful pears!! I'm loving the white of it all!!!

That is all the treasures I was able to get this weekend. I'm tellin' you, if I hadn't been able to find any junk this weekend. . . .I don't know what I would have done. Maybe it was the Junkin' Angel who was looking out for me :)

REMINDER. . . . . .My Giveaway ends tomorrow, Sunday Sept. 20th at Noon. I will draw a name at that time, so if you haven't entered, go here and enter. I have picked up a couple more items that I'm including in the giveaway. . . .they are a SURPRISE!!! Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments!

    I agree with you about the sales right now. Alot of them have baby items, which is great but I don't need any of that! I guess I shouldn't complain. I've found alot of goodies that make me happy this garage saling season!
