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 randomness

Today I tackle taking down Christmas decor around the house. After I got everything pack and later took a look back I thought everything look so bare and blah. I have loved the french look with the monochromatic hues but I'm getting a little bore of the lack of color. I do not care for fake greenery nor I have a green thumb so I do not know in which direction to go with the new year decor. I went around and rearrange some vignettes, still, I'm lacking something.

My girl, I love her. I don't necessarily want hair or clothes on her, she is awesome.



 I am too incorporating a lot of sea shells and coral into my decor. I found 4 big pieces in my last trip to San Antonio. Back home when I was growing up in Puerto Rico anything sea was considered trash since we have so much of it around. This days there is nothing left plus is illegal to harvest.


                                             You have seen him before, he is my favorite bear.



 This beautiful garland is made by a very talented scrap booking and everything beautiful artist in town. She is the same person that made the family garland for my kitchen. I'm still working on my kitchen decor, more next week.

                          Love this lady bear and the little hat I found for 4.00 on my last trip.
                                  I collect group pictures, specially of young children.
                                           Shells, coralls, starfish and everything in between.






                  I love this mother of pearl pillow. It weights about 20 pounds . Not practical, just pretty.

I'm working on my Valentines and some Spring in the shop. It is hard to think Spring when is 15 degrees outside. Have a Happy White  Wednesday, blessings, Marta .

Hi Marta! I was just on Margo's Junkin Journal blog about a trip she made to your store, so I looked it up and realized your store is only one hour from me! So I'll definitely have to come check it out in person someday! Lovely White Wednesday photos!
