Hi all! I have been wanting to do Junkin Mondays hosted by Clara and Marcela over at Cottage Charm and Family Inspirations for quite sometime, but never seem to be able to get the 'ol act together! Today, I spent time organizing my guest room where most of my finds from Saturday's junkin were thrown! Can you see the wonderful Wolfe dress form I got! I was so excited. The lady I stole it from (er, purchased) it from actually had just purchased two, yes 2, from a yard sale I was on my way to! Well, after begging, crying, and pleading with her she finally parted with one... to moi!! Can you believe it! And the price, well let's just say... yipeeee!! Now, to sell or not to sell...humm. I have so many projects to get done for this next show that I am already freakin! So it's a good thing I got somewhat organized today.
When your done here be sure to check out all the other gals that are doing Junkin Mondays.

Here's so of my finds from the Saturday...(the Chandelier is from two weeks ago) The ottoman will get a new look with the linen I have been purchasing.

These are some of the linens I got and this chair (the ones my cats were lying on in the previous post) will get a new look with some of these linens.

I found so many really great linens on Saturday for my pillows and a few other items that I am going to add to my lines!

See this wonderful iron piece? Well, the lady I got it from got it in France. The top is missing and it has a wonderful leg (not shown), so it's a console I guess. It is so beautiful, But with the top is missing do I put a mirror?, glass? or completely re-invent it... that is the question..I hate not using the leg, cause it is beautiful, but I am thinking of re-inventing it...can you guess into what? If it works, I'll be showing you soon...otherwise you'll see it as a console in my space for our November barn sale 13, 14,15 . Have a great Monday!

Wow Gale!!! You could have begged, pleaded, kicked and screamed for days and I wouldn't have parted with the manny. You must have run into a much nicer lady than me! Otherwise you'd still be there on your
You really do have beautiful things here and I love it when you share them with us.

Thank goodness you picked up my slack, I didn't get a thing this weekend. You really did score some classy junk, girlfriend! I'd keep the dress form myself, same for the chandy, and the iron piece. LOL, I have attachment issues!
