Friday Finds

I love Fridays!
Junking is a total addiction, for those of you that "get it" you know what I mean, for those of you that don't I would love to take you along for the ride!

I plan out my hunt on Thursday evening, and go to bed with shear anticipation of the goodies I may find in the morning. I'm generally not satisfied until my rig is totally filled. I look for anything that has good bones, things that can be transformed into something entirely girlie and of course the usual sparkle.

I have a master list of fav's like:
  • linens
  • anything galvanized
  • pearls
  • rhinestone jewels
  • ephemera
  • old books (especially known titles)
  • dainty furniture
  • anything that can be distressed to its shabby beauty
  • ice skates, and recently added roller skates
  • vintage Christmas ornaments
  • canning jars (don't ask me why, I have tons already)
  • children's furniture
  • vintage fabric/anything with those great old roses
  • floral me some frogs!
  • tea cups (becoming very hard to find in a reasonable price range)
  • fancy dishes/ cut glass (it sparkles like nothing you've ever seen when laced with lights)
  • vintage picnic baskets
  • chandeliers
  • and anything, I mean anything French...

Just to name a few!

I'm sure you get the idea.

This Friday was a great day, I came skipping home with all kinds of treasures.

You know what they say; one mans junk is another crazy, obsessive, wildly creative girls treasure! (hee...hee...)

Oh the plans!

Oh my poor garage!

Oh my poor,poor family to put up with such nonsense!
