Junkin' Time Again

Can you feel it? It's in the air.....I was starting to get a little worried.....not a lot was happening in my neck of the woods......but after Saturday.......I think it's official.....Junk Season is here! Woo Hoo and I'm doing the happy dance! I found some GREAT treasures this weekend! I stopped by a couple of my favorite shops and one of them was having a flea market also!

This first cabinet I bought from one of my favorite shops. You are always sure to find something, antiques, rusty chippy treasures, vintage and of course treasures like this great kitchen cupboard that was just rescued from a farmhouse. I snapped this picture just as they were unloading it at my house. I love the color and with a little love (she is missing her backside as she was wall mounted) she will fit right in with the rest of my treasures.

I spotted this next treasure at the flea market another one of my favorite shops was hosting this weekend. She hadn't been unwrapped yet when I saw her, but I knew I had to have her.

I have an old enamel bowl that will look perfect sitting in her and I'm thinking she will either go in my bathroom with additional towels or possibly on my screened porch with flowers. What do you think?

At the same flea market, I found this beautiful wire basket in a yummy turquoise color. I couldn't resist her. And she is quite large too.

See how long she is? This cabinet I purchased from the same shop that I purchased the green cupboard. It's hard to tell by the picture but this little darling has the sweetest light turquoise color. She needs a little lovin and then she will be ready for her new home on my screened porch with the basket on top filled with potted plants.

A close up, still hard to see the wonderful color she has.

I did have one more treasure.....a very large vintage frame. I'll share that with you in another post as I have a little project I want to do with her.

I'm linking up with Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures.

Until Later,
