Junkin' Monday #10


Good morning Sunshine!
It's time to tackle this week and what better way to do it than showing our new treasures?

It was a rather quiet hunting week, but enough to get our imagination going...
We were surprised of how much Christmas stuff there is out there!...to be honest we are not in "the spirit" yet...it seems early to us and since this year we don't have a store to decorate, we will stretch the Thanksgiving Season and hold on to our pumpkins a little bit longer.

But, with that said, we couldn't pass on this box of 12 ornaments for only $2.00!



We also brought home a silver plated "Bride's Basket"...

It's in pretty good condition and we love monograms so this was an easy decision.



We love vintage wicker trays, and this one is not exemption...

It's fairly large but I couldn't get a nice picture, sorry!

We just have to decide if we will add something pretty underneath the glass or leave it as it is.



Of course we had to buy a frame...we seem to always find a nice frame to adopt!..

Nice oldie, great patina...it was calling us!



And we couldn't finish our hunting without buying a project...
This old, wooden, (boring), box also made it home...

We know, nothing special, not even cute, but at $4.00 is perfect to try a new painting technique.
Later this week we will show what we make with it and let you decide:
boring box or keeper box?

Well, that's all for today's show and tell...

Now it's your turn...what have you adopted this week?

This activity is now closed

Please don't forget to link back to us...because the more the merrier when you:

Share, Inspire and Be inspired!

You know I don't know what a "bride's basket" is--I like it though! Just never heard that term. I also rarely see wicker trays either--very pretty. I also think your box would be very pretty stripped and refinished. Thanks again for hosting this!

Clara and Marcela, you guys never disappoint. Great, great finds. I especially love that gorgeous gilded frame. Can't wait to see what you do to the wooden box. p.s. I've been sick and stuck at home since last week, therefore no junking, definitely not fun :(

I'd say you did well. Love the silver. I recently posted on my blog about a wood box that I repurposed - very similar to yours.

Love your blog.

We've been finding lots of ornaments too...but we're using them in the store for decorations and for selling $$ :)
Can't wait for a little free time so that we can play along...we're missing the coolest sisters in teh west!
