Okay, I'm not gonna lie. Today didn't start out so hot. I got to work today and while reading my emails was startled by a LARGE 2 inch cockroach staring down at me from my cubicle wall. After the first one was disposed of, I screamed like a girl after moving some papers and discovering his brother. Just so you know, I eat lunch at home, so it was NOT my fault, I do not have food at or in my desk! So today I had a parade of people stopping by my cube asking about my new pets. But I had a GREAT lunch hour! I LOVE the start of junking season! I hit a cool estate sale and scored some great treasures for my almost RED kitchen! I found this MINT stepstool for $12.50 and it is EXACTLY like the one I remember from my Grammie's kitchen (hers was yellow)! There is not a DING on this thing!
I couldn't resist these sweet little stripey pot-holders, which were never used! I may want to hang them up somewhere and not use them because the lacey crocheted edges are just the sweetest. I also scored a bag of interesting kitschy buttons (also some are mother of pearl).
I also picked up a bag of broken junk costume jewelry on the cheap. These will find their way onto my cards for one-of-a-kind embellishments!
Look at these sweet red floral buttons. I'm hoping I can find some fun fabric and have my Mom make some pillows for me with these buttons in the center. I walked away after paying $15.50 for the whole adventure! YIPPIE! It was a good JUNKIN day, in SPITE of the cockroach meeting at 8am! Hope you have a bug-free Thursday!
