Junkin' Monday #13

Happy Monday, Ladies!

We still have some left overs from our Temecula extravaganza to share with you today!

How cute is this vintage clock???

Let us answer that: VERY CUTE!!
He will be our Dad's clock companion at Clara's house.
We can "see" a collection forming...Yeah! more hunting to do!!

The second treasure today has all the characteristics of a fave: rusty...



Perfect to hold silverware in a buffet table...
napkins will keep the silverware away from the rust!

Talking about irresistible rust...

another pretty for Clara to keep:

Metal base with glass top little table...little enough to be used as a pedestal on a big table.
Great display piece!

And finally a piece that really makes justice to the Junkin' tittle of this post...
A hoosier top that we found in a pile of junk

It was missing the sides, and the back needed some real help...
But, hey! nobody's perfect!

We added the sides and covered the bad back paint job using 1910 German catalog pages and added it to our Country Roads space.

Recycle, Redo and Reuse, that's the name of the game!

Would you like to play?
Add your link and will be fun!!

Next Monday, November 30th, there will be no Junkin' Monday, sorry.
This whole week will be dedicated to shopping, cooking and spending family time in celebration of Thanksgiving Day so the Sisters will have no time for Junk!!

I'm so glad you rescued that hoosier piece! You did a really great job using it in your booth.
(Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!!)
Thanks for letting me tag along with you all.

Oh, wow! First I thought, "I LOVE that clock!" Then I thought, "I LOVE the metal bin thingy!" Then I thought, "I LOVE the little table!" Then, of course, I LOVE the Hoosier top! So, I guess it's safe to say, I love, love, love all the stuff! LOL
