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!

It's a white Christmas

  NOT!. It was 78 degrees today in Central Texas. Out wearing sandals and capri pants. It really doesn't get better than that. Maybe...

Yes it did. My dear friend Karin brought us the most delicious  german cheese cake and beautiful violets. Thank you Karin, we love you and cherish your friendship. I also open the shop for two dear friends and we have a wonderful visit.
    Now some pictures of the white stuff I'm really digging lately.
 Our sweet Juju. He is almost 5 months old. Last Saturday his mom and dad came to visit. I think I want another little one so little Juju won't be alone. His daddy Pete managed to get another girl pregnant before getting fixed. The new babies should be here in a couple of months. We will see, vet bills can be very high plus I have to convince Mr. Teddy Bear.


                                                  Juju, that is a LOOOONG tongue.
                                               Juju is going to look just like his dad.


                     Look at those eyes. He lets me hold him and cuddle him like you would a baby.
I gave him a bad haircut, no matter that the vet says he looks great, I think I mess him up. I will let the professional tackle him next time.

        Now, the bargain of the century. Small  creamish white tree with working lights: 25 cents. I got plans to keep this one as a year long prop in the shop. I will decorate it seasonally and with vintage stuff.
                          Is mercury glass out? I have not sold one single item this year. Is it?
                             I keep adding bling to this girl and in this case the more the merrier.
                                                Just some white stuff around the store.


 China head dolls. Why, oh why? I sold most of my collection just to want them again. They are an arm and a leg this days. Oh well.
                


                   My cloche bear. I'n not seeing many cloche displays this days. Are they out too?
I guess I should go shopping some more and get acquaintance with the new trends, hum...maybe I should visit more blogs, those are free and probably more inspiring than any stores around. Go and visit Ms Kathleen @ Faded Charm for a list of the other amazing White Wednesday posts. To all of you I wish you very blessed and Merry Christmas. Love, Marta.

I think things are out only if you think they are so it stands to reason if you want them to be in they are in! I love the mercury glass, it is so beautiful.

Your post is really nice, great pictures
