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!

Just doing my thing.

First, I wanted to show you my friend's cute shop. Interior Decor is located in 6th st in Belton, right across from HEB. It is a much modern, tuscan, eclectic look but just recently they are starting to add a little bit of shabby to their store. They are also doing the BUY SELL TRADE and is working for them. I think that the trade part is going to caught up with many business since more and more people are getting very tight for cash. At their prompt I traded a 2 tier table and 2 mirrors for a china head doll I wanted and a little drop leaf table. We were both really happy with our items and both got what we wanted out of the trade. It was the first time I t tried it and I liked the concept.


 Then, my poor attempts at gardening. I started a shaded garden (it was 116 degrees in the parking lot yesterday) and I have to constantly water. Can you believe this is the first time I try to grow anything? I always killed everything and this is the first time in my life I'm at home so I decided to go for it. It is just that it is soooooo hot.
 The little topiaries tops I got at the store forever but nobody will buy so I put them to good use and I intent to keep them now.



 My mama grows this callediums from seeds. She got more shades all over her garden.
 This are kind of the hardy plants the lady at the nursery recommended. I was just grabbing stuff all over and she was honest and helpful enough to advice me not to on some of the plants. She said not that many plants will survived a long day of 100 degrees plus and said the best thing was to start a shaded garden and that will require a LOT of care too because of the heat and lack of rain. I think there will be no fireworks this year, all ban because of the drought. I guess we will do the barbecue and the famous Belton parade on the 4 of July.

Be blessed today, Marta.
