Junkin' Monday

The last few weeks I have been trying to cut back on my junk "proliferation". The garage is full, but you know how it is. This addiction is a tough one. It calls you out at all hours and sends you places you normally wouldn't go. You are found in the company of other people suffering from the same malady, and you sneak back in, trying to hide your finds and stash them somewhere where they might not be noticed immediatlely.

Seriously, I have cut back after a full blown "junk attack" this summer. My problem is I just love vintage "stuff", and if I see something useful, different, or a bargain, it just comes home with me.
I picked up a few baskets at a garage sale, and a few more items at one of the places I have a booth. We aren't spending our Sundays on the road though, so that causes me to not really get the junkin' fix I need.

I have a plan for these candle holders,so please disregard the horrid green candle wax, and the fact that these are "dime-a-dozen". (See how I'm trying to dress this stuff up with some fall leaves?  Maybe you won't notice that it's "junk"!)

Oh, That's right... That's the name of this post!

This was from a new store that I will share with you later in the week,
"Inspirational Home" here in Springfield.
 I just love this little handmade wire pumpkin candle sconce.
This store will blow you away! It definitely has nothing to do with Junk!

These little tea light holders with crosses looked like little crowns to me.

Lunch basket, so cute for fall decor.

I'm a sucker for little cottage cannisters.
This will be useful in my office for supplies.

This is a glass door off of an antique wall clock.
 I thought it would make a good frame for some altered art.

This is an old round cheese board, and on top is a bar of homemade oatmeal soap
 that I think came from Sharon at Sweet Repose.

I picked it up at Leola's Fall Open House,
 where I saw Hayley, from Nesting Notions.

We live in the same town, only about 3 miles from each other,
 but we had not met.
It's such fun when you can meet a blogging friend!

Smells heavenly...and so cute all tied up with sheet music and lace!

I found this great grain sack that will become a pillow cover.
 Love the colors.

Brown and light blue-grey.

Apple basket, that's going to be whitewashed and hold a mum.

Old crocheted doilie, just love these.
My grandma would sit and make these for hours on end.

Uh, oh. They've found me, the twins are here.

Better forget about any more shots.

There goes the grain sack.

Of course! What's wrong with me? A cat bed is a much better idea!
