FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

Pink Saturday ladies rock! and other stuff

Girls and boys forgive the out of focus pictures. Me and technology are not friends yet. Aside from that this first picture was of one booth were everything was pink and shabby. The picture do not do any kind of justice to any of this booths, the stuff in that shop is amazing.




This mess of a picture show the most amazing booth there, Susan the dealer have been at it for the last decade and have the look before anybody else did.

Love the hats, only problem there was none cheaper than 25$.

OK ladies, all of the sweet ladies that stopped by for my first Pink Saturday post and left comments, I'm so grateful for you all taking the time to visit and for all your kind words. I have been slowly but surely checking your blogs. There is so much inspiration out there that Home and Garden TV is fast falling into loser rating category in my book. I finding blogging much more inspiring and rewarding. I was asked what took me so long to start a blog. The answer is simple, I'm computer illiterate and fear of messing up. That was before, since I started to meditate on the fact that fear have never kept me from trying. I needed a mentor and I found one in my friend Jessica who took the time to do the initial set up for me. I'm still learning and you will hear me many times begging you to tell me how to improve, so if you know of some cool stuff you want to share so I can stop sucking at blogging just feel free to speak. Another fact is the reality of having to buy a new computer, ours is soo old, ancient. The only thing missing is the wood veneer around the monitor (I read the very first ones look like that). So I have to be gentle to my old girl until we find her a replacement.


Enough blah, blah. I will be blogging about some local shops this week. I will leave you tonight with pictures from my trip to Roundrock Antique Mall 1 week ago. Blessings, Marta.

You are doing great and the photos will get better as you take more of them. I had a really old computer but finally got a newer one, what a difference it made. Now I'm looking for a new laptop!

Linda, I figure out what I did wrong. My camara was in the wrong setting. I must have turn the little dial without realizing. By the way if I learn to take pictures like you it will all be worth it.

oh yes! the round rock antiques gallery, as it's called now! my shopping buddies and i were just down there a couple of weeks ago. i blogged about it.

they DO have gorgeous stuff there ... but we were knocked out of the ball park with their prices so we found some yard and estate sales in austin.

were the ladies nice to you there? one of them got snippy with us for chatting at the front of her store, so it wasn't a very pleasant experience. hmmmph.

anyway, you're doing great blog work, marta! keep it up!

hugs,
terry lee
