Needing some JUNK time

It seems like I have been away for such a long time!! I haven't been able to share anything with all of you in Blogland because one of my sons took.....stole.....uh, borrowed my camera and forgot to bring it back from his friend's house. I have been keeping up with everyone, visiting your blogs, seeing all the wonderful things you have been up to, new projects, thrifty finds, fall decorating, wonderful recipes. Now I have my camera back and I am back on track. I was actually able to go to a couple of yard sales this weekend. I haven't been able to get out to the yard sales for a couple of weeks and I was needing some JUNK time. Seems like they are starting to slow down around here. I was able to pick up a couple of things, for some future projects that I will be selling.

First purchase was the cute cupboard with the wire insert on the door. The blackboard will go in my kitchen, the little fence piece is for a project.

I picked up the vintage basket....LOVE it!! along with the flower bucket at the same sale. The shabby white frame is a favorite also and will be used in a project that I will sell at the shop.

This little lady is not much to look at right now, but the price was so good that I couldn't resist taking her home.

She still has her original springs & webbing in the seat (still in good condition) and I love the nail heads. I can picture her painted a shabby white with a pretty floral fabric with just a little skirting to accentuate her legs. What do you think???

And I want to share with all of you that I will be having a giveaway soon...... My very FIRST Giveaway. I'm putting everything together and will post the giveaway in a couple of days.....

Until Later,
