Junk Bonanza Finds

It's time for. . .

On Friday I was happy to attend the Junk Bonanza for the first time. It was amazing and so much fun. Want to see what I found?

My wish list had two items that I was hoping to find at a reasonable price and I'm happy to say I found them both! Oh, a few other items also (heehee!)

Wish List item #1: A white scale. Isn't she fetching? And isn't the red metal toy phone adorable. She'll go wonderfully with the white one I picked up last month.

Wish List item #2: A wire basket. Found this egg basket and it is perfectly rusty - love it!

I'm very excited about this find - - a vintage seed sack with red and yellow on it. I'll be making a pillow cover with it and it will look stunning in my living room sitting on my red ticking stripe chair.
Some reading card which I plan to frame and hang in the play area of the family room.

My daughter loves horses so I picked up these photos for her room. The photo in the middle I'm not sure what I will do with but I loved the house.

And last but not least, a few little baubles to use around the house.

Make sure to head over to Cottage Charm and Family Inspiration to check out all of the Junkin' Monday posts.

Until tomorrow, Robin

  5. EEEEEEEK!!! when i went out this week, i found a blue phone like yours that i really wanted...unfortunately the store i was visiting only takes cash and i had to decide between that and a frilly pink girl's petticoat...the petticoat won out...i love old scales too...i have a tiny collection of them

  6. I'm so jealous that you went to Junk Bonanza. LOVE the wire basket. I've been on the lookout for one like that.

  7. Love the scale! Everything you picked was something I would've picked too. You have great taste!
    Oh, and I love your beadboard, too.
    So glad I found you, I'm a fan!
    All the best,
