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!

Forever decorating.

          I spend today on my knees, for 2 hours, not praying, just cleaning. I shampooed my carpet in my husband's office and my masters with a little green machine. I think it is intended for upholstery cleaning, but sometimes you just have to make do. A Rainbow vacuum would have been nice, though.


                 I decided to go simple for fall in my kitchen table. Love the white creamish sunflowers. They look so real and they were cheap for the quality.

 I decided to redo my hallway and to keep it simple there too, just mirrors and empty frames in the same patina that I have collected for a while now.
    I like how my little bears are looking this days in a super shabby piece in the entryway.


 I just love the shabbiness of this piece and I'm glad I added the glass pulls to it.
 More shots of my entryway. I just bought the spinning wheel last week for 3.00. LOVE it.


        This is my formal living. You have seen it before, I just added the french baskets with dried hydrangeas and the awesome frames I found in Cleburne.
 My friends Mark and Laurie let me have a set of 4 shutters with the most awesome patina. I like the way they frame the door.

Ready to go visit with the White Wednesday girls. Blessings to you all, Marta.
