You know you're a "Junker" when...

...it's Easter Sunday and you've just had a lovely dinner at an amazing out of town restaurant with your family, but you can still manage to find the time to raid a local antique mall, squeezing out every last minute there until they throw you out at 5:30! Ahhhh...a great day!


Perfect brown transferware tureen and crucifix,
yes, they will be staying with me.


Old mirror, books, a bread box...


The filigree work on this old crucifix is just so intricate


Tiny white pitcher


Love the shape of this shade.
 I have the perfect cut glass lamp to marry this to.


The kiddos in front of our after dinner coffee visit to Panera.


My three favorite guys.


Love that wind and glare,
it's always so flattering.



Just have to show the family photos,
I always love seeing yours!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.

love,

  25. Hi Debra:
    Where do I start? First...Love the new header! It's you all over! And your girls look just-like-you...and your men-folk are a handsome lot, too!

    Then, on Easter, you go to a fabulous shop and find that stunning crucifix. That sweet little book, too (A Little Girl In Old New Orleans). You really scored, girlfriend!

    Have a wonderful week, my friend.

  36. Of course you're a true junker, as if there was any question!

    Okay, I'm blanking out on which daughter is the one on the far left in that last pic, but man, does she ever look exactly like you! And yes, that's a GOOD thing.

    Hair looks good, looks like you got most of the shoe polish out. ;-)

    XO,
