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!

White Wednesday pretties

She is a beauty only thing was that she was missing a finger and the color of her hat and dress was ugly. I still went ahead and bought her for 25.00. I altered the hat by adding millinery flowers and lace. I painted the hat and dress and decoupaged lace to her dress too. To cover the missing finger I found a bouquet of flowers that look like bisque. I think she turn out pretty sharp.

This  used to be the red room. No more red, only hues of cream and whites. i'm not done but it is looking cute.



I started to altered old bottles. I'm having the most fun with these and for business wise I rather do this than the tags. The tags are just as time consuming and you don't get as much for them.

Don't you think they turn out cool?


This litle frame got a broken top, i just added broken jewerly and a pretty velvet ribbon to hang.


I bought the frame for this piece of lace and pray it will fit, it was just perfect.



I bought this light fixture that came loaded with the yarn balls. I was not interested in the light part, just love the balls.


    
More thread. Love the different shades of white.



This is all for this WW post. Thanks to Ms Kathleen @ FADED CHARM for hosting. Blessings, Marta.

Oh dear....you are so right, you do have lots of things I love!!! And looks like I could find a few places to nap....that is of course if you didn't mistake me for one of your wonderful finds....maybe I could sneak into the jewelry since you won't be parting with it anytime soon. ("She" laughed when she read that one.) I am so glad that you stopped by my blog for a visit - because now I have found you! Thank you so much! I will be returning often!

Marta!! I absolutely love the new header picture you have...I am on a pearl kick lately and that is just darling!
Is that the red room that was all vintage kid stuff? I loved it in reds but wow that is pretty too!

The bottles are darling! I may have to copy the "Pearls of Wisdom" idea.
