~A Few of My Favorite Things~

A few of my Favorite things..... I am loooong overdue for a post. So what to better fill a restless night than to blog about some of my favorite JUNK.....not much rest going on here, the yard renovation is still in progress, 4th month now.....anthing that could have happened...did!! Hopefully I will be able to share some fantastic makeover pics with you all soon! In the meantime back to some of my favorite things!

MY JUNK JEWELS... still love to create them....

A few of my Favorite JUNK Pendants creations....they are all available for purchase, just email me for pricing. They all come on a rustic link chain of your favorite length. (click on pics to enlarge).

Old dingy dollie lamp shade, & old mirrors and findings!

Old chippy, dingy, Ironstone at it's BEST.... it has to be this way to catch my eye!

Love this saying.... How true.....??

Lots of Letters.......

And more letters.......

And heck yeah.... I still love to JUNK it's all in the thrill of the hunt !!

Last but not forgotten.....THIS CHAIR.... SIGH ....Fell in love with it the second I laid my eyes upon it. Old, Old leather stuffed with straw and Horse Hair!! It made it no further than my living room... a keeper for sure.

Thanks for stopping in, most of these items are available at The Depot (except that chair!!). Now that I have finally completed this post I am off to hit the hay!! Stop back in to see me soon! Hugs and Blessing, Janna

I love your blog Ms. Artsy Fartsy!
I have banded myself for a month from Thrift Shopping until I get my house fixed up AKA 'Cleaned Up' :)
I have been purging for quite awhile now and I keep finding old and hidden stuff!
Thanks for finding the letters. I love them! Also the glass bottles! I collect those too ;)

I've missed your posts. Are your necklaces still for sale? Would love to know the prices on the peace sign w/rusty back & the one with the saying on it. I get more compliments on the necklace I bought from you then anything I wear. Thanks! Jan

hi janna,
sounds like you've been a busy bee... me, too. finding time for something as much fun as blogging sometimes seems unreachable when our hampsters are busy on their wheels. LOVING all your letters ~ and, junk jewels too of course! is the charm with the shadows in life available for sale? if so, send me a price.
i'll be stopping back by for visits. been missing all the inspiration.

trash talk said...

If you haven't already...turn that bad boy over and look for mfg. marks kinda like tattoos. It sure looks like something from the Mission furniture makers. Love the leather...just the way I like it.
Great stuff as always!

Love your junk jewelry and the old letters! I must admit, I have a "thing" for old chairs myself!!! I have found a few on my junkin path, and it seems like I always find a reason to keep them!! Cathy aka GGJ

Wanda said...

Hmmm.... Your favorite things are some of my favorite things. I really enjoyed seeing them!

Mary said...

Hey Janna - thanks for your good wishes on the booth Vanessa and I have opened at SuzAnna's Antiques. We are having more fun than gals are allowed, and hope so much we'll be selling stuff to make it all worthwhile! Our space is small but it's a start and a great excuse to go shopping!!!

We hope to get down your way soon - why aren't there more days in the week? Meanwhile I'm loving your stuff and yes, me too with your necklaces, they do draw many comments and I love mine!

Love to you all at The Depot, can't wait to get back. Are you going to Liberty this weekend? I'd like to but not certain I can make it.

Hugs - Mary
A Breath of Fresh Air
