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 babies

    Hello WW friends. I thought I will show a table vignette I put together at the shop. As some of you might know I own a shop and I don't have any vendors, it is just moi and my junk. Well, sometimes I just start to run out of ideas and stuff. I have sooo many tables and cabinets that I try to keep fully merchandise, CONSTANTLY, never ending cycle. You friends that own shops know how demanding it is, sometimes trying to make your merchandise stand out as much as you can, making the old look new by shaking and moving things around a lot. I always get a lot of feedback from faithfull costumers that keep coming back, the reason been that they can not believe how much the shop changes from week to week.
In the mean this shop owner is getting her butty kick by so much work. We work so hard, no pitty party, this is what I chose to do and feel so blessed by the fact that I get to do exactly what I dream to do.
 I decided to showcase my babies and kid related stuff. This cloche needs something, hum...            
                                            
                   I'm purging some of my bears, reluctantly
      This baby is the son of Chucky. Somebody did a number in his eyes, spooky.

    This baby is so ugly and then I make him metrosexual(dress him like a girl when he is clearly a BOY).  Love the little wool hat and the slippers.
Little  bear and boy stuff vignette.  That tattered bear was missing an ear. I gave him one but he is still one sad bear and one very wanted bear. He is not for sale.
                       The slippers, so Hollywood baby and just made in Texas.
                       This little elephant is mohair, so old and cute.
                                                     Boy stuff

                                                    
                                                     Boys, boys, boys

                      That little girl in the picture I love, she reminds me of somebody, I just can't tell who.
Well  dear friends, go and visit the rest of the WW posse. Thanks to our host Ms. Kathleen @ Faded Charm. If you want beautiful whites she is one of the best in blogland. Blessings, Marta.

What a beautiful post Marta! I am loving the baby vignettes - these are great! Just a suggestion on the cloche....how about a child's book in back of the shoes and babies? Inside the cloche but as a background?? Again just a suggestion and only because you said it needed something.

I watch "her" work like a crazy woman doing all her junk stuff for the store. It IS hard work and if you don't do it, chances are you don't fully appreciate all the work that goes into it. However, the up side is that, your loyal customer base obviously recognizes your hard work and loves the results - that's why they keep coming back. Your love of work shows and it's beautiful!!!!

So cute! I love the setup with the elephant and the silver cup.
Count me as one of those that love to visit you just to see what is different! There is always a surprise waiting for me to see at your shop, and it always inspires me.
I have to be honest though, the little doll heads with no bodies are a little creepy to me. hee hee

Everything is so pretty! Got a chuckle out of the "son of Chuckie" and I loved the Bingo cards since I met my husband at a Bingo!!! I was a checker at a Hose Company Bingo and he was the caller!!! I was 17 and he was 20. That was 35 years ago!!
