FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

Cute white stuff

I spend the weekend playing in finishing my bedroom and tweaking around the house. I got this little bird at Michaels for 2.00. I glitter the crown and added the rhinestones. The little nest is a Martha Stewart  ornament shaped like a wreath. She sits perfectly in it.
I got these two arm lights by each side of the bed and I have been looking for the right shades. I went ahead and bought simple ones. I got some cheese cloth that I used to make the bow and rosette. I wrap the cloth around the top and bottom edge. I kind of liked it.
  

               I bought a garland made of balls covered with different textures. This is my favorite. I found the ribbon today at Walmart. It comes in 3 yards for 4.00. Not bad.
                         I also collect crazy looking lightbulbs. I know, odd. I bought the box from my friend Krista. It advertises lightbulbs, perfect match.

This guy, I LOVE. He is 36 inches tall and I dress him for the seasons, well, I used to. This last look I like the best so he will stay like this for a while.



 My collection of corals have grown. I really like shells and corals, before it became so popular to have around. The 3.00 dollars days are gone, this days I start at 25.00 and up.
I really like this condiment set. I pay eleven dollars for it. The tops are all mix matched and I don't care, that is part of the charm.

I love clocks. The problem is that everybody else does too. So no more cool, dirt cheap clocks for anybody.


Last, one of my girls, no bra and all. So proud, so bold and so yummy. None of my friends like them, I do and that is important since I live with them.
That is all for today. I will be linking to Faded Charm for WW. Blessings, Marta.
PD
I know so many people like to keep their blogs a happy place and I'm all for that but tonight I can't help but to cry and ache for the cities devastated by the tornadoes. It is so hard to watch and so hard to understand so much devastation. My prayers are with you, Marta.

Beautiful, I’ve been thinking of putting up a springy wreath (even though it still feels and looks like winter in my area as well). thanks for the great idea.

You always have the most beautiful pictures. I am sorry I haven't been leaving you comments lately, I have been reading your posts, just lazy about typing in a comment, I admit it.
I do hope your business picks up. It was sloe here all winter, picked up a bit and then slowed again. I think the economy is just taking so long to rebound. Our soace is doing fine, it more than supports itself but we won't be making a living at it any time soon. It's more of a hobby and it helps we have a lot of smalls, people are willing to part with a few dollars here and there. I think it's the big bucks they don't want to spend unless it's functional everyday furniture, which is what my shopowner is telling us. Then they still want a deal. I was telling my cousin, heaven forbid anyone pay the asking price even if it's reasonable!

Hi Marta, I adore all your whites today. And yes with everyone liking old clocks, etc. it's hard to find them inexpensively. It's fun to try and find the cheap stuff that hasn't gotten popular yet. I love your rabbit! HWW
