I love junk. .nice junk. .crappy old junk. .any kind of junk!! So flea markets are exciting to me!! You can find really nice things. .and really good junk! Good prices, good deals, fun bargaining and bartering and it is ALWAYS different!! It intrigues me the way that things catch your eye and hold your attention. I love looking at things and trying to envision different ways to use them in decorating or gardening. Or envisioning how and why they were used in the first place. This past weekend was no different. My best antiquing buddy and I kidnapped my new neighbor girl (who also happens to love antiques. .and junk) and ran away to Wichita for the day. I usually do not go with a list of things to check out. .but I did on Sunday. Soon we will be remodeling our bathroom. When we were "picking" at my great grandparents homestead several months ago, I took one of the glass paned kitchen cabinet doors. My notion was to have Jeremy build me a display case using the door as the front. I planned to put in a lot of bathroom collectibles that I have scavenged onto in my past. .but wanted a few more things to make it look complete. I can excitedly say that I was able to complete that mission on Sunday!! I won't spoil my future post by telling you what will go in the case. .but I am hoping that I can convince J that building this box should now be a priority!! And that within a few weeks I will be enjoying my new wall art!!
What I would like to share today are a couple of things that I wasn't looking for. .nor would I have considered them things to be high up on my wish (I have been wanting one of these for YEARS) list. .but boy would I have been wrong to have left them there!!
