I saw sun today - all day. It did not rain. I repeat, it did not rain. So I was able to dust off some of my treasures to show you what I scored over the weekend - finally.
Who could resist this bear's delightful smile?
Well, not me!
It was so hot and humid by the time I got home today, I was not able to unload the three furniture pieces in the car and get them painted.
Here is a sneak peek.
I will reveal them as they are made over and properly distressed.
A table, a cabinet, and a bookshelf sit waiting.
Love the lacy goodness of this not-so-old-but-looks-it crocheted twin spread.
Tempted to use it, but I took it to the booth.
May bring it back.
Chucks' new rule: If it leaves, it does not come home!
So not fair!
I like to read decor books and fell for this one with all the chairs on the cover.
A 1968 Better Homes New Cook Book makes a great shower, wedding, birthday, housewarming gift.
Everyone needs one!
The framed stars is a rag punched piece - great colors.
A pocket Webster's Dictionary.
A plastic Daily Loaf filled with scriptures to read each day.
Tooled leather vintage purse.
Do not shoot me - I plan to paint it.
I promise most of you will adore it.
A huge stack of pink striped storage boxes.
You are well-aware of my storage problem, but these are just too pristine and girly for me.
Do not shoot me - I plan to distress and stain them.
I promise most of you will adore them.
I found Mr. Bear at a yard sale where the mother was selling her children's art projects.
Now I am not a mother, but I would not be able to sell the handmade bear.
Well, actually I could and have put a bow tie and a concho belt on him and sent him to the booth.
He is a handsome fellow.
I thought he would look cute sitting in the blue wagon. See wagon here!
The wagon had gone to live at a new home.
I found him a blue basket to sit in.
He is very happy!
Chucks had a light bulb moment when I was taking this photo. He said put a ruler in the basket to show how large those bulbs are.
So I did.
He was right.
Then Chucks said put price tags on them and take them away.
So I did.
I hope he was right.
My niece, Leia, came for a day of lunch and shopping. She came with a cute gift.
Two homemade aprons - one pink gingham and the other blue gingham featuring girls in frilly aprons.
When you flip up the skirt, they have matching undies.
There you have it - a true June Junkin' with several interesting items - some yet to reach their full potential. I am getting there, folks. The next few days will be filled with pruning and painting. Don't tell Chucks, but there might be shopping involved, too. Come back again.
I'll be over at Donna's Funky Junk Interiors for Party Junk 191 all weekend long!
