Plucky Junk Fest Loot

 As promised, The Plucky Maidens Junk Fest loot.  Those folks sure have the right stuff!  A partial roll of very vintage wallpaper, something I almost never find around here.  You will be seeing THAT show up in my projects here and there.
 A sweet postcard that you will see heading up a post at a blog near you very soon and a nativity for my collection.  I'm having a hard time getting in to the Christmas decorating so far this year so that collection might be it!
 A little metal Eiffel Tower, another one of those odd jar sifters and a big pile of glass vials for adding glitter to my Altoid inspiration kits.
 A pile of findings, also for the Altoid kits.  This gal had a whole table full of this stuff and I could have "poked" all day long.  I think I went back three times.  It's the pirate in me.  8+)
 And WHAT was I thinking??  I adore wallpaper covered boxes and the shallow drawer at the top was love at first sight.  Thank you to Melanie at All My Favorite Things for helping it find it's way to me!
I got home and chaos ensued as I moved things this way and that and re-arranged and re-organized and did what I needed to do to make it fit.  Oh.My.Gosh, I do love this little set of drawers and the ones I covered just the other day look right at home on the top.  Tell me you've never done it...!

I must get to that Plucky show sometime in my life! The sooner the better! You sure found some wonderful things. And I love your jacket! I thought I was a follower of yours but apparently not. So now I will become one!
Happy Thanksgiving.

Wow, nice finds there girl! And yes, I've moved a thing or two in my studio......in fact it's going through a major re-haul right now and I'm loving it!
It feels so good to get things organized.
Love, love, love your wallpaper drawers. They're one of my favorite things. I'll be blogging about my drawers that I re-covered (like you did) that I found at the thrift.

Glad you had a great time at Plucky and sorry I missed it!

Awesome finds Kathy! Sounds like a great place to spend a day... the postcard is perfect timing for you and I love those little bottles!

Those wallpapered covered boxes were meant to be yours...a family is born. Love your stash of little treasures that will be headed for Altoid kits.

Awesome drawers! I'm actually trying to figure out how to add an antique curio cabinet to my sewing room. I had my eye on it for 3 years and the last time I saw it, it was half price! Of course it's probably gone by now, but I do whatever I had to to make it fit!
