Junk Update

 These are a few recent find from the VOA.  That lamp waited a week for me so I decided it was meant to be.  The colors are a nice fit in my living room and I have been wishing for a taller lamp next to my chair since the one I have there now is a little low for reading.  I was happy to find that it works and the wiring looks good so I don't need to re-wire it.  I was disappointed that the shade I have isn't a fit since I really like it so now I am on the hunt for one in the right size.
 Whimsical is decidedly NOT my style but this little vase is so colorful and unusual that I couldn't resist it.  I think I will enjoy it for a while before I send it on to a new home.
 These noise-makers were a mistake since I got them home and neither one of them toots.  Maybe I will be able to incorporate them into a project sometime, though.  Some tiny treasures for shadow-box fodder and embroidery floss that will be headed to Etsy.  I am SO behind on listing.  I always "find" faster than I list!
This yarn container looks like an alien - LOL!
The firestorm of cleaning and re-arranging that the wallpaper drawers set off goes on and wait until you see the new set of drawers I treated myself too!

I bought that same deer vase this year and gussied it up Magpie Ethel style for the holidays. It is unusual, but love the colors. You do have good luck at the VOA.

I know you'll find the perfect shade for your lamp, it's so pretty and was definitely meant to be yours. Hmm, those noise makers are looking a bit like bud vases to me:-)
I find it faster than I sell it too!!

I am sure you'll find a neat use for those noisemakers - they look really cool!

I am still trying to figure out how one uses the yarn container.

Oh, the little noisemakers are sweet and would look cute sitting on top of some children's books. I love those little wooden shoes, too! Have a fun week!

Those are some neat treasures, I was stumped by the yarn holder, when I saw it I thought it was a planter.... The horns would make a great base for a project, the wheels in my head were turning.

I never would have guessed that was a yarn holder! The vase is just adorable and would be really cute in a baby's room. Sorry you can't toot your horns ;(
