~My Junk Jewels, Makeovers & Old Pics...Long Blog!~

Well... I did mange to fit in a few makeovers so instead of creating a second post of the weekend I decided to squeeze them into this blog.... I know it has made it a looong post.... No junkin this weekend, it was just Junk Pendant making, makover projects and picture snapping. The heat here in NC has hit us hot and fast. Definitely makes the getting out and junking thing a challange for the heat challanged... that would be me!! I loathe those high temps, the sweat, the sticky icky feeling!! ~Update, #9 SOLD~

Two of my little quickie gotta get stuff to market projects that turned out better than expected. Boy these were last minute this morning finishes!! Now off to the shower and then to the Poet to put it all in! Old Burgundy Column base turned out nice in a pale shabby greeny color. Actually the brush had turquoise paint on it from the cabinet I painted before and I was rushing and stuck it in the white paint and went to town!! The cutie Turquoise cabinet from my friend Beth was once white, a little coat of Turquoise and light sanding... we are ready to go!! ~Update White Chippy Vase Inside Cloche SOLD, Column Base SOLD~

Isn't this old place a beauty??? I bet the walls are talking.....

Now onto my Junk jewels.... with much anticipation here they are... They are all created from about anything and everything I can get my paws on. They all come packaged oh so cute and with a cord in the length of your prefferance. They range in prices. If interested in purchasing just send me over an email sjbaker@carolina.rr.com and I will get the pricing over to you. I also offer wholesale for shop owners with the purchase of 6 or more. I do accept Paypal....
The Vintage Deputy childs toy badge is a cutie!! There are Old Letter Press Numbers, Old Locks, Old Keys, Old Brass Tags, Rusty Washers..... it's all there!!

Here are a few more of todays creations... My Vintage #116 Key is one of my favorites! ~ Click on pics to supersize for better viewing~

Vintage Button and Rusted Junk Pendants...

Here are a few more of my Vintage Button Pendants that are available...

Me and my hubby took a little ride down the road this past Tuesday evening... well actually I had seen an old house being torn down on Sunday on our way to eat. Of course we came home a different route...That pile of wood was stuck in my head and I just could not let it go until we rode back out there.. .I was convinced there was a hidden treasure in the pile.... NOT, NOTTA, NOTHING was in it once we got there!! So we found a few cool places where I could at least snap a few cool pics! Fill me up...right?? To bad it is Leaded... This old rusty pump was at the neatest old gas station barely left standing in a small town in Unity, SC.

I truly LOVED this old barn, See... I could take pics of it all day from every angle, the haze makes it look like an old dream from the past!!

Oh yeah... I forgot the CHIGGERS & POISON OAK ...oh yeah... they both got a hold of me while I was taking these shots. I have been scratching like a dog all week!!! But the pictures were worth it to me...
Since there was NO junkin' this weekend.... what I still can't believe it myselff!! So you know what that means for the week and weekend ahead!! LOOK OUT!! Thanks for stopping and checking out my junk jewels, Have a great weekend! Many Blessings! Janna

I love old barns! Just something comforting about them. Hope your itchin' and scratchin' has come to a halt. Nothing fun about chiggers & poison oak!
No junking for me either this weekend. I'm "itchin" to go! No pun intended!
Have a good day!

It's always so much fun to come across places that make us wonder what possibly could have happened to cause them to fall into such disrepair. I love wandering into old barns and homes, too. Just gotta watch those floor boards, though. Ouch! Hope you've stopped itching, Sue

Really cute new pendants.

Sorry you had to scratch all week, but I enjoyed the picture of the old barn too! Make me think of all the stories, is the walls could talk. Sandi

Thank you for leaving a comment at my blog post about wild ponies the other day. I like what you did with the column base and the cloche. I don't think I'll ever get tired of cloches inside the house!

Hi sweetie!

LOVE that barn!!! Talk about "if walls could talk". I just love finding old deserted homes & barns out in the country. In Louisiana we have a lot of those old cabins....I can just picture these in their beauty days. Even though they are still a beauty to behold.

Take care girlfriend....and have a great week!

Hey Janna---love your junk jewels and great photos of the old buildings---re: your question...the prices I got in Carlton were good--but the majority of stuff is salvage and most of that is very old wood pieces-moldings and such. He does have lots of doors, etc. out back, but the mosquitoes are thick. Love your makeovers!
