some Christmas boxes...

Here are just a few of the old wooden boxes/crates that I have been working on for JUNKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE...

The following still need some distressing, so they will look a little different than they look in the pictures...

There will be NO EARLY SALES for this sale. I have already had people asking if they can come look through everything earlier in the week of the 12-13 and I had someone ask if they could come at 3:00 on the 12th. So, I am just going to be fair to everyone and not allow any early sales. Everyone will have the same chance starting at 5:00 on the 12th.

More pictures to come this week!

Thinking Christmas

I've got Christmas on the brain....Love this old picture!
Sorry for the absence lately...we have had our first round of cold/strep/etc over the the last few weeks! Amazingly, I did not get it...I ALWAYS get it!

There WILL be a post this weekend. I have been painting, gluing, decopauging, sewing...all kinds of stuff this week.

And, don't forget....

Finally...some junk finds!

This picture does not do this little tray is so cute, and it and its fun contents went out to Junque Magnet for my 100th post giveaway!

She is also lucky to recieve this little Halloween necklace that I picked up from Altered Ever After...
AND...she is also getting the $50 gift card from Michael's --- HAVE FUN!

Here are some great fabrics and some trim I found at the Bonanza! Can't wait to get them made into some bags!

This crazy mannequin and the lamp shade that I also picked up in Shakopee. I am going to name her "Emily," because I am in the process of decopauging her with pages from a vintage Emily Post Etiquette book!!

This melon green hose reel has a little story...I will have to share later. Love the color!!

Super cute metal cabinet that I picked up at What Cheer on Saturday...

Another What Cheer find!

TONS of boxes that I found at Sharpless Auctions last Wednesday...

More goodies from What Cheer...

Not for sure what this is...found it at Barb Conner's sale in Fairfax last Friday...BUT, I love it! Can't wait to fill it with something!

Lids, lids, and more lids...some from What Cheer, some from Barb...they will be transformed into Santa lids I hope...

More boxes...

AND....a little sneak peek of things to come....a little vintage Christmas!

Camera fixed

The camera is fixed...kind of embarrassing when you realize all you have to do is reset some settings that you must have accidentally changed....

New post tonight....
