The Week in Junk
A few fun finds from the past week. We all know I have a weakness for suitcases so no surprise there. The wooden hanging shelf in the back is sitting on its side for the photo.
The suitcase is filled with lace ruffles. The pictures in the frames are ugly but I adore the Italian frames. The book is a vintage French children's book. I translated the title and it is The Wooden Tiger, or something close to that.
I used a food mill like this when I used to can back in "the day". My mother and I just called it a Foley. I'm sure Foley probably made something besides food mills. Mine didn't have these pretty red wooden handles. Two strands of pink glass garland. I'm pretty surprised that I'm still finding Christmas.
I dug and dug in hopes of finding a mate to the insulated mug but only one was to be found. I adore the color!
A box of adorable note cards. Click this one bigger so you can read them.
Plastic Christmas do-dads. I have been bagging them up and people seems to like the little bags.
Three rolls of very vintage Christmas paper. I rarely find it and was delighted when I spotted these. It is similar to tissue paper but thicker.
Junking is one of my happy places so I hope you are finding time for some, too!
