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!

My favorite things

For many years before I finally figured this blogging thing I was a lurker. I'm still trying to figure it out. I sometimes have blog envy, there, I said it. There are so many breathtakingly beautiful blogs out there. I have gone thru times that I have wonder why blogging at all. I love comments, but I bet that the folks that leave comments would love some kind of response and in my case time is never on my side. I'm thankful and humble by those of you that stop by and leave a kind word but I haven't been able to establish many friendships this way. I know that readers love great giveaways, great pictures and a great read. I don't have any of those.  I have friends that don't understand social networks. Why putting your thoughts, life, home relations out there for everybody to see? I really don't know why, I just know that the blogging time is my down time, it is just me and the three of you that read my blog. It is so inspiring, it gives me hope. I promised myself that if blogging was ever to become another chore I will stop doing it. I only do 2 parties, White Wednesday and Pink Saturday. It have been thru those that I have met most of you. I don't even know where I'm going with this post, I rather have you friends look at some pictures of my favorite things. I went back into my old pictures and pick the things I love creating, owning or simply eye candy. I hope you enjoy.

                                               It hangs in my master bath
                           I'm a button hoarder, especially mother of pearl and glass.
                                                  .
                                            Ironstone potty chambers, yikes!
                             My fav altered shoes made by my sista Vintage Sue
                               Little doll rescued from the trash.
                                             Love anything sewing related
                                   Love this vignette from last year's spring
                                           pearls and white yumminess

                                                            love pillows


                                                          Got so many of this
Of course I have to include THA FACE
                                                  Altered rescued doll heads

                           Saw this at Rountop last year, I need to make me one.
                                                                 Love clocks
           Thats is all for this revisited images. Have a blessed WW, Marta.

Everyone gets different things from blogging. As long as you continue to enjoy it and find some joy in it, you should do it. I would miss you if you went away!

You have so many beautiful and special things. I love your pearly buttons and pillows and the pretty Spring display. Most of all I love the sweet little doggie face!

Marta, I feel intimidated too by all the gorgeous blogs, but I think we should not let that stop us from blogging. Everyone is looking for inspiration and you do provide inspiration! I haven't gotten to come visit your new shop, but I hope to get there someday. I have many things I was inspired to buy from you!

Marta, I hope I'm considered as one of the three that read your blog! Looks like I'm not the only one though. I love all your pretties and I too wonder if I should continue with my blog. I haven't had the time to properly focus on it. I do love to look at everyone else's blogs and I don't comment very often either. I just sit down and make a quick run through. You are doing a great job! Much better than I!

marta...i am with you!! how many times have i blogged about just me and my stash....nothing essential...no parties...no giveaways...no this or that. i blog because i like to write down thoughts. i like to inspire. i like to complain. i like to reflect. those are the reasons i blog. if folks want to come into my world to check it out, then i hope i make someone laugh or think or whatever. i hope someone leaves with something. other than that, i really just do whatever. i can't worry about how my blog looks, or how perfect it is. i am lucky if i get 3 comments. i am lucky if anyone reads my blog at all. it is what it is. your too...and i LOVE to come check ya out!!! i totally love to see photos of your shop, home, collections and that baby of yours. keep it up when you have time. we lurk and we love it.
hang in there lady...oh...love those shoes girl.
