One Junk Stop This Week

 I have been being good and trying to stay on task with getting Christmas sorted and priced for the booth but couldn't resist just one junk stop.  All this honeycomb goodness will be headed to Ethel for a touch of her magic and add to her collection.  It isn't my gig but it will fit right in for her holiday decor.
 This holiday card holder is missing the bottom but I think it will be an easy fix and the graphics are adorable.
 A vintage blue Tonka just waiting for a Christmas tree and another Made in Japan knee hugger.  That girl in the halter top thinks he's hot!
 Sometimes you toss something in your bag because it seems like a good idea at the time and when you get it home you realize it looks like Santa had a roadside tragedy...8+(
 I grabbed that picture-holder because I keep looking for ideas to display single ornaments.  I think this might work out for a few.  Betsy, when I find something like this rusty wheel it always makes me think of you.  I mean that in a good way!
It has been a while since I found a new aluminum tray for my collection.
I haven't been posting as often since I am finding my way in this new world of Etsy PLUS a mall space and appreciate you folks who are sticking with me while I find my way.  Yes, I have been finding some time for play, too, and hope to post about those projects soon.  Have a great week!

Love it when a girl in a halter and vintage elf find each other!

I loved wearing halter tops in the 70's - I thought I was very hot too. LOL!!

Always happy to see honeycomb in the Ethel bag! Good for you for starting the holiday pricing and sorting. I haven't. Strictly crafting at this point. Dreading the pricing part.

I love that you think about Betsy when you see certain things.

Love the BINGO cards.

I haven't started pricing for the Holidays yet. I'll have to start soon, as my mall switches over to Christmas mode on Nov. 1st!

What a load of vintage goodness! I remember making those halter tops by the dozens back in the early 70s. Oh, my! Love your vintage Christmas goodies and the fabulous wheel. I'm proud to wear the association with a rusty old wheel!!

You found some great treasures. I remember wearing those halter tops in the 70's. Love the sweet little knee hugger.
Looking forward to seeing your projects. Have a great week. cm
