Junky Weekend v.1.0

 It turned out to be a fun junking weekend and I haven't gotten a single thing done around the house.  Sometimes we need a weekend like that - you know?  I don't usually take my photos outside but there were a few garden things I really didn't want to bring inside.  That wooden box is the perfect shade of "Grandma green"!
 A huge liquor bottle that will stay with me because I think it is fun patio decor and a galvanized bucket of heads {don't judge!}.
 The biggest aluminum colander I have ever seen and a mother load of lace.
 The lace will all be headed to Etsy, once I get things sorted out.
 Bonsai pots for $1 each - heck YES!
 Another big pile of vintage patterns because I am just stoopid on those things and can't help myself in spite of the amount of work they are to check and list.  These are three of my favorites.  Groovy!
A neat old Carpenter magazine from 1929 will be headed to my son in Pennsylvania.  I'm sure he will "enjoy" the ad for asbestos shingles since he is currently enduring working in a full-on hazmat suit and respirator in 85 degree heat while he tries to clear asbestos from the cellar in his 200 year old farmhouse.  Sorry Andy.
Stay tuned, this is the first round of the weekend.

Oh, your poor son!! So much lace, right up your alley. I love those patterns. They remind me of an outfit or two I used to have. Looks like you've had fun!!

I laughed when I saw the heads and I knew you would comment on them - those of us who know you know your fascination.

I am coveting galvanized tin buckets lately.

Great finds!

Oh yes! What a load of goodies, and I swear I'm not judging you on the bucket of heads. I found a bonsai pot on Friday, but only one. Love all that lace!!

Ooh, I love those tall Galliano bottles; my mom and dad used to have them and I even have a tiny version! Used to use them for displaying dried flowers back in the 70's...

Love the old bucket and colander too. And lace? Can't have too much of that! Great haul Kathy!
