Rolling Along With The Junkalanche
I'm still here and still not making any significant progress in digging out the art room. I tell you what, I am going to be GREAT at retirement, although I have been told that I still won't have time to get everything done.
I have been neglectful about photographing the recent finds so I made a point of getting a picture of the Saturday finds before I sorted them away.
I was intrigued when I found these little nun figurines and thought they were sort of beautiful. I did some research when I got them home and they are Depose Italy Fontanini and someone has WASHED OFF all the paint. Boo. They are supposed to be painted. I still think they are sort of beautiful so I hope someone else will think so too.
It was a good day for vintage tablecloths. I don't find them often. The ivy is a cutter because it has a stain from what looks like a paint spill. The other two are a little faded but overall good vintage condition.
I should have taken a better picture of the other tablecloth. It is my favorite with a pretty yellow and turquoise color combination. Shiny Brites on top but I only brought home the plain round ones that were good colors. I'm not sure I ever found a purple one before.
A Japan baby shoe planter and some lace for the inspiration kits.
A whole menagerie of chalkware nativity figures. These are going to make me squeal again when I re-find them next Christmas.
Last but not least, a 1986 Mickey squeak. Toys are not my "thang" but some things just can't be left behind and need my help to send them along to their new forever home.
