Junkin' Monday


Welcome to our first Junkin' Monday, a weekly meme to share all the treasures we find during our weekend hunting!

Of the two of us, I must admit that Clara is the "lucky one"...

If there is something fabulous to be found, she will find it...
...if there is something that can be "negotiated", she will get the better deal...
...if there is something to be "rescued" from the dumpster, she will dive for it....

Me? Well, I do my best and from time to time I manage to find something worth blogging about.

This past week this is what we found:
A "cheese plate"...actually should be called a "cheezy plate", but once we do what we have planned, it will be a cute Fall arrangement, worth the $3.00 we paid for...


A nice vintage alabaster lamp with an ugly gold-ish base and no shade. No worries, little lamp, we'll take care of that...$7.50 no bad!

Wonderful books ready to be altered...



And a fantastic vintage suitcase in very good condition and super clean...

this one came free...
from the dumpster...
guess who found it...
yes, Clara!
Perfect for a nice show display!

Now is your turn...show us what you found...
link your blog to ours using the Mr. Linky gadget below:



Remember to visit the participant bloggers and leave them some nice words...

Share, Inspire and Be Inspired!
XOXO
Clara & Marcela
