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!

Work, work, work!

Thank God I really love and feel so passionately about what I do, if not...have you ever been tired of been tired? That is me lately, I seem to be unable to recharge. I get so exhausted and I think, maybe I sleep like a baby tonight, wishful thinking. How can you be exhausted and then can't sleep at night? I actually hurt a lot at night. I find this the hardest thing about getting older, your brain remains 20 and your body goes down the tubes. I also think that I need to learn to slow down, all my life I have only known one speed, which is speeding fast. It is so hard to teach an old dog new habits. Then again I might run into the wall of the reality that I'm not wonder woman . Well, enough blah, blah. I spend the day today at my booth Downtown and did some tweaking there. I love this mall, maybe too much. I always spend more than I should, but with the quality of vendors that is there you almost feel obligated to. Also the people in this town are nice, beyond nice, so I'm so proud of being a  Beltonian. 








             Not my pillows, I just wish. Much cheaper than any other place I have seen. I wish I have taken a picture of the vendor's job in a shopping cart.

             This is another vendor with a lot of beautiful things. It is a mother, daughter, husband trio.
Dan created the booth walls. Look at the beautiful job on the book pages decoupaged wall. I will love a room wallpapered like that at home.



This vendor have the coolest things, very unique stuff.
I want the picture of the little girl and lady so badly, it is a paycheck, so for know I get to dream.



I hate this, I'm unable to take pictures without the glare. The window turn out Ok, specially since I didn't have a  lot of Americana to display. Just not the best pictures.

If you ever in the area come and visit us. We are located in Central Ave. in Belton, Tx, right across from the historical Beltonian Theater. Tomorrow I will be featuring a great shop in Belton, with a new concept that is working. I'm ready to link to Ms. Kathleen @ Faded Charm for White Wednesday. Blessings, Marta.

Hi Marta! I'm sorry to read you aren't feeling too well. Please take care of yourself. The not sleeping part is awful, it makes your whole day harder.

I've been neglecting my booth for a few weeks and finally got some new pieces hauled in there. I wish we had more vendors like you have in your store. I hate to say it but some of the vendors in our store are just NOT our style. But then that can be a good thing too because we don't have any competition for what we sell.
I hope you feel better and have a great week!
