~Some of My Favorite New Finds!~

Well to start off I could just kick myself..... I deleated the Before pic of this little Chimney Cupboard. It has sat in my garage FOREVER, my hubby had moved it to every spot in the garage so I finally decided it was it's time for a makeover. So just imagine UGLY Brown with a Big bunch of fruit painted on the door!!! I really like how it turned out just wish it would not have taken me a year to get to it!!! It is available at The Sleepy Poet. If you are local be sure to scroll down to the previous blog for a Sleepy Poet Coupon. I have taken a zillion pics of my new Junk finds. I have found myself too lazy in trying to get them all grouped together for a pic. Heck, I have not even decorated the Christmas Trees that stand lighted in my home. Nor have I begun Christmas shopping. I sure wish my family LOVED the Junk the way I do... it would make for the easiest shopping ever... no such luck!! Where is the time going so quickly.... can I put the brakes on it??? Ever feel that way?? So without anymore delay here are my new Junk Goodies!!

And this door..... I have been eyeballing this sucker for weeks in my friend Amy's booth at The Sleepy Poet. Finally it is mine to keep! The old blue color is great, the detail is not like any I have ever seen!!!

Just look at the old Gentlemen tag.... Fabulous!!

The cute old chippy dog bed I had for a centerpiece on the old farm table is sold, I have to admit it was one of my favs and I hated to see it leave. Quick replacement turned out to look just as good!
Finally another Tobacco basket.... FOR ME.... I think this may end up over my bed, these things are hard to find and I had regretted selling the 1st one I had.
This little old rusty metal Windmill was the cutest thing ever.... I yanked it right up for the booth.
This Old Chippy Mirror was another rainy Saturday find. I am always a sucker for these. $38.00 *Mirror - SOLD*
Now I was not too sure about this Old Saddle but somthing in it was calling my name... so much that once I left the darn store I had to turn around and go back to get it! Definitely would make a cool display piece!!
This was a find from a few Saturdays back at an Estate Sale.... I have been looking for one of these forever.... and now I have it! It did find it's way to the booth however. $125 *Horse Weathervane- SOLD*

Old HEAVY Cobblers Primitive Bench, was the perfect find for my other booth that has taken on the old Farmhouse feel.
These two old Crackley English Ironstone Pitchers are keepers as well!! The one on the left was a Goodwill $1.99 find, the other I stumbled across in an Antique Mall Saturday.
Loved these Old Quilts.... who wouldn't for $20 bucks each??? I ran across this little Antique shop Saturday out in the middle of no where and walked out the door with these and a ton of other Junk for $50 bucks!!!
Old feedsack backing, I was in love.... this was the thickest quilts ever, definitely keepers. Not a hole one, a quick washing on the gentle cycle and I will be ready to bundle up in both of these suckers!! Perfect for Winter.
Thanks for stopping in to visit!! I am off to hit the shower and to bed. It will be time to head back to work before I know it. Blessings and Hugs!! Janna

Great finds! Can't wait until I am back in Charlotte, to check your place out! Of course, I will probably leave broke, but very happy! LOL! You have a great booth! I found an ironstone pitcher like one of your two, this fall at a yard sale I believe, very cheap! I was tickled! :)

Hi Janna
I haven't been around a lot either with all the decorating for the shop but my events are pretty much done now so I can blog a little now :) Hope you have been well, looks like you have been out finding good stuff - which I haven't done in a long time now.
Blessings to you this week

June said...

Janna, I don't een know where to begin...you are just the best junk magnet I know. I have a cupboard like the one in your first picture and I love it. It is in the mud room and holds lots of paint cans. I LOVE the pitchers!!!
Good luck on the shopping. I'm with you, it would be so much more fun buying gifts if I could do it junking...but then I would want to keep everything.
Hugs~

I know how you feel about never enough time! I am the same way! Heck I don't even put up a Christmas tree! And money is so tight around here there won't be much shopping! Holidays are always very stressful for me, wish I could skip out on them!! One of these days I'm going to plan to spend Christmas in a warm place sitting on the beach some where!
