Got Junk?

Love My Junk

I went junkin with my best friend Susie today and look at the treasure, ummm... junk I got!I love this little table. It would be so cute set with a lovely teapot and tea towels hanging on the side. I am planning on repainting it and changing the knob to a glass one. The lady I bought it from said she thought it was from the 30's. The sign was a gift from Sus. I will hang it above my aprons at the next show and then it will have a place of honor in my sewing room. I could'nt resist the garden girl. She is just darling and of course every garden needs a bicycle!

Oh I just couldn't pass these up. I think this birdbath was salvaged from Liberace's old place and no dignified bird of the garden would be caught in such a garish bath so it will have a visit from the spray paint fairy. The red cart needs a little freshening too and will look so cute adorned for the 4th of July!

This little plant cart is so versatile, of course full of spring & summer flowers but how about pumpkins in the fall? The table and chairs are from Laura Ashley and I got them for an absolute steal. It was definitely a well loved set and needs a fresh coat of paint and maybe some gingham cushions? What do you think, pink checks or red checks? Oh this rescuing of others' castoffs is a tough job but hey somebody has to do it.

I don't know what to do with those shutters. They have been all over town and I cant sell them. I added them as a prop.

OH MY GOSH! Thanks for entering my giveaway today. I was shocked when I saw this post. I am SURE that I made your vintage linens sign. I made some exactly like that and sold them on ebay under the ID all4shabbyroses...did your friend purchase it on there by chance??? Would be very interested to know. What a small world!
Lovely blog! Will be back soon!!
