Getting Ready

I have been a busy little beaver getting ready for the February 5th Funky Junk, Junk Revolution show which is why you haven’t seen me here much lately.  Just thought I would pop in and give you just a sampling of all the goodies I am bringing to the sale.

DSCF1616 Cute little vintage, cottage style lamps.


Just a couple of the vintage pillowcase sets I’ll be bringing.


I had so much fun making these vintage fabric covered buttons.


I’m bringing lots of pretty vintage jewelry, including these rhinestone necklaces.


And some sparkly bracelets, too!


This cute wedding couple is ready to Par-tay!


I love these sweet little vintage cottage prints.


I’m also going to be bringing some great vintage furniture, including this neat shabby dresser.


I have a whole rack of cute vintage clothing items including dresses, slips and nighties.

That’s all I have for now to share.  If you’re in the area, I hope you will stop by.  Don’t forget to print out my $1.00 off admission coupon on my last post.  TTFN!

I’ll be Here in February, Hope You Will Too

Just wanted to tell you about a new show that I will be a vendor at coming up real soon in February.  The Funky Junk Sisters are taking their “Junk Salvation” show on the road and will be hosting some of best vendors in the PNW on February 5th at the Washington County Fairgrounds.  I am excited to be included in this special, first time event, and I hope that those of you who live in the area will come check it out.

I have been busy painting, buying, hording, packaging and crafting some fabulous goodies to bring to the show. Below you will find a coupon for $1.00 off the admission.  Just copy and print and bring with you.


I’ll be back with a few sneak peaks of some of the fun things I’ll be bringing to the show. If you would like more information, visit the Funky Junk Sisters blog.  Happy Monday!

New Year/New (Old) Finds

Happy New Year dear blog friends!  Just thought I would say hi and show you a few of the cool things I’ve been finding lately.  Isabel and I went to our favorite monthly flea yesterday and while it has been better, we both managed to find some good stuff.


Everything here with the exception of the barkcloth vanity organizer was found at the flea. The organizer was found at Goodwill and it’s a keeper.  I love those for storing all my little bits in the craft room.


I also found some bling and other littles at the flea.  Some of these items have already been packaged up and some will be used in some craft projects I have planned.


I love these little rose calling cards and was tickled that I found some more to add to my collection.


Have been eyeing these adorable vintage paper covered hat boxes in Debbie’s space for awhile and I finally bought them.  They will replace two I currently have in my craft room that hold my collection of vintage lace.

And finally, one of my favorite recent finds:


This lovely hand painted roses glass jar trio was found at the Goodwill.  I initially left them there because I was being cheap and thought they were priced too high.  After leaving the store and visiting a couple other shops, I was still thinking about them and decided to go back and get them and I’m glad I did.  They cleaned up nicely (they were a bit grubby in the store), and have no cracks or chips.  I’m a sucker for just about anything with hand painted roses.  I can totally picture these with bars of soap in the large one, cotton balls in the medium and q-tips in the small one on a bathroom vanity.

Today is the last day for the kids to be home for holidays.  I’ve enjoyed having them home and having less chaotic mornings, but it will be nice to get back to a regular schedule.  TTFN!
