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!

Simply a good time with friends

      Yesterday my friend Caroll have a social at her new bistro/antique shop. It was a Valentine  party and I don't know how she did it, but her shop was all decked up in red  and Valentine stuff. I was there Friday and she was open Saturday so in a couple in hours she completely rearrange her shop. I want a magic wand like that.
Yumm!

                                      Red velvet cake, which happen to be my favorite cake.
                                      By the way, we all wore comfy pajamas or sportswear. So much fun.
 You have seen my friend Denise before. She is the closest thing to a sister to me. We hang around a lot.
                                                       One of her table vignettes.
                                This window creation was put together using old corsets and girdles.
                                                           Carol  is the lady in the red pajamas.
                          I love this kind of books and have never seen so many of them in one spot.
                                I wanted this so badly for my laundry, could not afford it.

                        It was a ladies only party and this is the first thing you saw coming in the door. I never           look like that, this girls were beautiful.
      
                All her furniture is one of a kind piece. She carries slipcovers, bed linens, curtains and all kinds                
                of costume pillows  made for her shop.


                       I love this lady. Her name is Ann and she puts together tea parties. She also supplies the Tea Time Texas magazine in our area. If you ever travel to Catalina island you will get to meet her there since she is one of the artists that sell wares during the summer festival.

The antique and art business have been one of the biggest blessings in my life. I just love to be surrounded by such creative and plain nice people. Love them all!!!!!.
