A Smashing Success

Our Christmas Open House was a smashing success. Everyone had a great time enjoying Charlotte's wonderful home. Charlotte has a great eye and a true talent for pulling it all together. Her displays are to die for as you can see from the pics. I would like to take this opportunity to say how thankful I am for all her hard work and to let her know I am truly blessed to call her my friend.
Our guest of honor is one of the most delightful people you could ever meet. She has been an inspiration to many others going through this horrible ordeal. I have received many request for donations and we still need your help. If you would like to make a donation please make your check payable to Jerilyn Price and mail to : 3108 Hopkins Road Powder Springs, Ga. 30127. Love to all this holiday season, Patricia

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS...a road trip is always a good idea

My best Junkin Buddies and I decided to take a road trip....and are we ever glad we did! We went to Lilburn and got to meet sweet Rowann of Antiques in old town. This shop is full and I mean full of treasures. We found so much junk...uh... treasures, we were afraid someone would have to ride on the hood! Now we were getting hungry (you know junkin is very hard work) so we went to the Blue Rooster Cafe just a few doors up from Rowann. This place is soooo charming and the food was wonderful. Rowann's sweet husband had drawn us a map to a couple of other places to see while we were there, so , with renewed energy ...we were off. Thanks Rowann and her Husband for a wonderful day. And special thanks to my Junkin buddies Charlotte and Margot for your wonderful friendship!

New Junque for White Wednesday

These were my junkin finds this past weekend. The chalkware statue is one of the most detailed I have ever found. The acorns and sheep are concrete made from french molds. The white pumpkins are handmade and the chair ... fantastic. I love the ruffled skirt . The large mirror was a great find. The frame is very old and someone put a mirror in it. Well this was a load that almost didn't make it to the shop because I loved it all! Happy White Wednesday

Another Beautiful White Wednesday

I was looking around last night at some of my favorite things and decided to snap a few photos for "White Wednesday". If you haven't been there yet... head on over and see Kathleen at Faded Charm
and check it out! The first photo is a small portion of a very large painting by my favorite artist Fabrice Aberti. He and his wife Martha are two of the most talented people I know (and sweet friends). The next is of a lamp I found in a thrift store long ago. The brown cupboard is from France and it holds precious gifts from some of the sweetest friends a girl could have. The canister set is also from France and the frame above it holds old post cards. The special thing about these particular cards is the Post Office they were mailed to in 1908 which is now my shop! The shelf just holds bits and pieces of some of my Hotel Silver and grungy Ironstone, old boxes...just some of my favorite Junk. Hope everyone has a wonderful White Wednesday!

and... THIS IS NOW!

I was waiting to show pics of the new window when I had finished tweeking was soaked in the storm, so I will post the ones I had already taken. I found a wedding photo from the late1800's, and this became my inspiration. The grooms ears stick out and his hair looks like Eddie Munster. The Bride is beautiful, but, look closely, what is that behind her that a skull?!!! Well, I had a steer skull and then found my little mannequin minus her fingers and the wheels began turning and.................

WHO KNEW !!! or It's good weather for mushrooms

Who knew I would be plotting a course to drive to work since all the roads around me are closed. Who knew that I would be spending my day dumping the buckets, bowls and enamelware from the roof leak at my shop and and cleaning repairing and redoing, who knew that after sending out the invitation to stop by my shop for a quick respite, major highways would be closed due to flooding.... The invitation stands! If you can get here, we would love to meet you! You just might need a boat!

These pics were taken at our lake. What you can't see is the dam that has been compromised by all the run off. It sounds like a raging river down there.

This was my yard...

I was watching the Weather Channel this morning when I realized they were filming in the parking lot of my shop! Went to check on things and found all roads to the shop were under water. Our roof was leaking all over the place, but we were lucky. We have had 15" of rain in a day and a half! Please pray for the families that were not so lucky. Four lives were lost today. People were rescued by boat and bused to higher ground.
