Where I have my booths for resale of junk goodness/vintage adored~~another vendor was selling this adorable grain sack "Feed the Children of the World" which has been framed~~maybe it belonged to someone who participated in this cause~~
anyhow; it came home with me and sits on my bookshelf.
At a local junk store; these three frames/prints were very cheap in price. I'm keeping Jesus with the lambs for my personal collection~~
The gold frame I will paint~~not so sure about the peace-pipe depiction; but removing it from it's frame. Old frames sell pretty fast for me; lucky to nab onto some fabulous looking ones recently for just a few dollars each!
~~this big tool caddy was $5.00~~I can see potential with this painted; a nice piece to put on the porch for seasonal decorations: pumpkins and leaves. Winter time: holly berry branches, yew branches with a sprinkle of white lights.
~It's very "fall-ish" here today; so somber and quiet; I notice some leaves on the trees starting to turn just a bit in color; already!
Have a great day with many Blessings! ~patty~

All this goodness for under $15.00~~which includes "attached" wooden crates in last photo~~
This home~made wooden caddy filled with nails, washers, old wire, etc~~
~~sweet 3~arm wooden towel rack~~I wanted this for an old kitchen island I'm "redesigning" from an old sewing machine cabinet~~
~~$2.00 for the wooden magazine rack; already on the painting tarp with a stencil job on the front panel~~
I only show one of these drawers; but, I got 4 of them!
~~and 5 wooden crates all attached to each other with screws~~I'll be taking those apart and selling individually~~some I will attach chunky little legs~~
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my junk!
Have a great day with many Blessings~~~~patty

I'm still having a love affair with barkcloth; especially with darker pinks; vibrant greens~~I still want to make huge throw pillows for the daybed. I still want a little color with old fashioned roses in my very own room where I create; where I just like to go to be alone sometimes~~
There's just enough pretty blue in this piece of vintage fabric; I'm thinking blue ticking for the back side of pillows~~still thinking~~
Somewhere along the path I had lost touch with prettier fabrics for the roughness~look of burlap and French stripes~~I'm starting to want something a bit different for myself in my own little hide~away~~
Do you sometimes feel that way~~like you just want to be different and change up the style and colors? I think this lovely, vintage piece of fabric did that to me~~
Have a great and Blessed day. ~Patty~

I had some really cute junk finds this week so far; rain is coming pretty quickly so snapped just this darling little ladder and a few garden shots~~
I may put this in my laundry room~~
~~rabbits have almost eaten all my petunias; there's hardly any left in this corner garden!
Maybe some sunshine tomorrow; I want to post my other treasures and show you the best deal I got on wooden crates and a large tool caddy~~
Have a great day with many Blessings. ~Patty~

I had this old farm table at my booths for a long time; it originally was just an old white table; we cut down the legs; painted gray and white with gray stripe and a French stencil~~
~~has a little drawer at one end; I modpodged a pretty paper to the inside drawer and added a glass knob~~I'm taking in back to the booths today, although I really like it in this room~~
~~Rosie, our rescue doggie; she loves to be in pictures~~
~~Today, got this nice, big heavy ironstone pitcher for $5.00~~
~~I'm loving these new zippered pillow slips I got from a seller on Ebay recently~~
~~I recently bought new area rugs to update the looks in the rooms a bit and the pillows blend so well~~
There's Ivy not liking being in the picture; she doesn't trust cameras~~also a rescue dog from a shelter~~
~~and this is her room~~she will make anyone get off the loveseat~~it's her's! She thinks.
Had a good junkin' day; better lighting tomorrow will picture my loot. Thanks for stopping by; have a Blessed week. ~Patty~

Geez; the weatherman got it almost right today; 3rd day in a row of gloom and rain;
~~with a "chance of sunshine by afternoon"~~we'll see about that~~
I've been gathering some seeds/berries/pickings to play with inside~~
~~and my coleus plants look like they've had it~~and I have a question~~
~~below is a coleus I started from a clipping and then planted in a pot; it's indoors in my laundry room;
I remember my Grandmother growing them near the windows inside all year long (and even geraniums); they seemed to thrive very well~~
~~have any of you luck with growing coleus indoors out of season?? I will keep you posted if my little project turns out or not~~
~~and I bought some flowering vines and some perennial packets for next year. Already planning for a trellis idea for sweetpea or moonflower vines~~
It feels good to have plans for the next year's garden~~
Have a great day. Blessings, ~Patty~
