I Went Junkin' Today!!!!

I decided to take a break today and go junkin' or shopping. I found a few little treasures and they sure are cute. This little hanging shoe that could hold a couple of flowers, a couple of candlesticks and a ring of "berries" I might use to make another pretty petal cake. The shoe was chipped but no matter; I'll give it a good and loving home!! :-) I give a "good and loving" home to a lot of stuff!! Just you ask hubby. He's my man!!

And what is it with candleholders that you can't find them any more except in flea markets and thrift stores?????? I thought I'd never find any again. I think it must be the trend of putting potpourri in pots or candle warmers. I do the same thing though. I'll go to Wal Mart and buy a little candle in a small holder and light it in the kitchen. I absolutely love Glade's Angel Whispers!! It is the most delicious fragrance I've smelled - outside of plumeria, of course. But Angel Whispers is a light delicate but definitely distinct fragrance I adore. You might try it next time you're at WM.

And while I was photographing the above items, I looked beside the area I have set up to do my photo shoots and saw this little drawer I snatched several years ago from a yard sale for 50¢ (!)....squeeeaaallllll as Jen says.......and painted it white. I haven't figured out just what I want to do with it yet but it was just sitting there and I've been sticking things in it that I'm putting on my other blog. It looked primed for a "photo shoot" so here it is. "Eye candy" for ya, chickees!


  1. Love your junking goodies! Especially the cute shoe!

  7. Hi Connie,

    Everytime you stop by my blog I get a big smile on my face. I read that you have a very happy home and love to laugh, so it's make me smile when I think of all the frivolity that goes on at your place. Thank you for putting fun into my day. Smoochies to you my friend.
