Junkin' Monday #12

We are back!

Friday was fun!!...we spent it with all the talented girls from La Maison Rustique in Temecula. The barn looked better than ever...the displays were over the top...(pictures coming soon) customers were happy and most of them walked away with treasures.

Of course we were not only satisfied sellers but also very happy customers...

Here are just some of our finds...

A very cute (to me) and very creepy (to Clara) composition doll head...(someone added a plastic body that will have to go, sorry dolly)

To be honest....she is a little creepy, but I couldn't resist her.
She was only $5.00 and she needed a good home...

Another thing we couldn't resist was this folding child's chair...red and chippy...old and sweet!!

A collection of 6 books...dated 1897...charming!!

Another clock face...we were looking for a big one this time and we found it: this one is about 12" round...and was only $3.00!

6 of the most amazing crystals we have even seen!
Talking about size...these vintage beauties measure 6" long each!...perfect canvas for some gorgeous ornaments!

We also found some vintage tulle, ribbon and lace...

Lots of vintage bottles to alter....

a shabby, peely mail box that we plan to use in a Christmas vignette...

And a lot more but you will have to wait a couple of days to see it all!

If you are wondering why we are shopping so much, come back tomorrow and we might have an explanation for you, but lets just say that our reason includes
a "road" to something new and hopefully wonderful!

But in the meantime...show us...what have you brought home this week?

Even Lil Creepy is curious!!

I'm lovin' your finds sans the doll--creepy to me too, but many people like those heads. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it all.

Rita said...

Buongiorno, si Clara e' corretta. I was afraid of dolls when I was little but the way you dressed her with the necklace she looks like a Principessa! Ciao Rita
P.S. sometime tomorrow I will have a post with a slideshow you don't want to miss it!

jen said...

ahhh, she may be creepy now but i am sure you will make her look precious after some recreating. i love love love old dolls. i would have had to buy her as well!

Julie said...

You girls have an extraordinary eye - I'm with you - I would have had to bring the creepy girl home as well...I think you should call her Tuesday in honor of the Adam's family - the name of a deliciously creepy little girl...xo Julie
