Junking Monday #14

We started the New Year the best way possible...Junking!

and junking in a Oh so chic! frame of mind.
Check it out...

We found 2 antique mirrors, one with original gold paint distressed to perfection...



and the second one with killer carvings.
We will distress the white paint someone added, and we'll reveal the gold underneath...


A 1920's drum lampshade with original silk.
We have plans for this beauty: burlap and jewelry will make it irresistible!

Talking about irresistible...
Sweet vanity bench in need of a new seat cover. Easy enough!


Wonderful black lettering on this large canvas mail bag

and stunning leather closures with perfect vintage appeal...a nice conversation piece....


The next 2 pictures show the smalls we brought home.
A beautiful ivory hand mirror...
pearls and some vintage baubles...
a metal rose picked for texture...
a small goldish frame
and a little girl screaming for a crown and a Valentine sash maybe?



If this is a sign of how the rest of the year will be, we are excited for 2010...
Some vintage charm, easy projects, a touch of whimsy and lots of glam...!

If you have found some goodies and would like to share...link up...
We would love to stop by and admire your beauties!

As always, your stuff rocks! We have had a very busy three days at Country Roads. I have one more day, and I'm off. So happy to see business this good but I think I will now crawl into bed. Again, the pictures are great, you've got a good eye.

Take care, Sue

Such cute finds! I am dying to visit the antique mall here but I have not been brave enough to plow through the snow to get there. Winter driving is poopy!
