One Day Fix

I had little time for junking last week due to the big girl job so Friday noon was my only stop last week.  It was a good junk fix! The tablecloth in the back has some stains so it will be a cutter to line the inside of the wire shopping cart that is still sitting here waiting for a rescue. The picture is perfectly dark and aged in my eyes.
This celluloid covered box is a little worse for wear but it is staying with me for a while so no worries.  It will eventually get a bit of fix-up too.  The inside is crying out for some vintage wallpaper.
The suitcase is, well, a suitcase.  What else can I say!  It has a pretty burgundy satin lining.  I didn't get a good picture of the pillowcase on top of the suitcase.  It is a single and has the sweetest southern bell and pink ruffled edge.  Perfect for a little girl's room and already listed over on my Etsy.  I spotted another set of pillowcases with blue birdies, a single with embroidered roses and some doilies, of course, because I'm stupid on those darn things.  I finally caught up on the ones I had laundered with FOUR HOURS of ironing last Saturday.  Good grief.

Hi Kathy, you found a great haul junkin. Love the aged rose print and the suitcase is a treasure. Pretty linens too.
I hate to say, I love to iron ~~~ but 4 hours worth is a bit much. LOL
Have a great weekend.
Hugs and Blessings, CM

Great finds! I would love to see when you line that wire shopping cart. I have one as well but am not a great sewer, so I've been wondering how to possibly line it. Also love the floral painting!

The floral painting is a real beauty, love the muted colors. Your new booth at the antique mall is going to be fabulous!!! Yes it is.

The linens and doilies caught my eye right away. I agree with you about the picture...perfectly vintage.

I LOVE the picture - I've been on an "old pictures of flowers" kick the last little while - I would have scooped yours up in a heartbeat!

I think my favorite this week is all the beautiful embroidered pieces.

Sometimes one little thrifting fix is all you need! Love those blue birds!

I have a celluloid box in need of a re-do -- very similar to yours but mine isn't in as good shape! Fun finds as usual!

Yikes! FOUR hours of ironing?? You are brave.

Love the blue birdies!!!

Well, my favorite in this post is the scrapbook and my least is know that one of your favorite haunts is closing.
