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!

A good time with a great friend.

Last Friday I visited with a friend of mine and I new that I was in for a great time. Ms. Ann is a retired artist that lives in the most precious cottage. She loves decorating, painting, gardening and have her own company hosting tea parties.



Her curtains, lamp shade, star fish and awnings are just examples of her home decor. She painted seagulls and sea birds in her master room, so so beautiful and all handmade by her.


             Just more examples of her decor. Her garden though is my favorite place to visit.
There is so much beauty there. I know she had worked hard for many years to get the garden as it stands today. She has tons of statuary and whimsical pieces of decor.

      The lady herself, isn't she photogenic? She always takes good pictures and you should see her shirt. It says "tea shirt" and have a pot that she painted. Just too cute.









Thank you Ms. Ann for welcoming into your home and for been such a  good friend to me, blessings, Marta.
