I have taken pictures of most of the antiques that I got while attending the amazing, and very rewarding Junk Bonanza a couple of weeks ago. I believe I've established a new speed record for myself, and perhaps even the world for finding just the right place for said new goodies. I believe it was providence, dare I say, divine providence that the new antiques slipped so easily into our home. I digress. Here are pictures of most of the items, although the hand and ring displayed inside the cloche are not pictured, but are very happily sitting on my bedside table looking quite like they've always been there (do I hear utterances about divine providence again? ehem, okay, okay moving along). I plan to try and capture some of the other items I got, a couple are Halloweeny so I'll save those for a bit later.
Pictured new items are the golf club set with plaid bag, the bag sitting on the floor nearest the chest, and the riding helmet sitting on top of it.
Okay, so this guy isn't part of my recent antiquing expedition, but he's cute, and really that's about all the explanation necessary I think. I got him at Michael's - he may look familiar to you.
Pictured here is the snapshot of lab coat people outside the Natural History Museum. Love the lab coat people. I know that not everyone would agree that Mr. Pumpkin Guy is cute, but I think he's hands down adorable. I just paused to look up at him as I type this. Yup, he's still totally cute, and in case you're wondering, he is indeed still smiling.
I really, really like the Fall Harvest sign that I got. It's in the kitchen - the room you can see behind it is the dining room. The DR is a very pale gray color - the Kitchen is that caramel, butterscotchy color.
Here is the tartan plaid Pendleton blanket that I got (I already posted a similar picture earlier).
A close up of that great Junk Fairy wand that I got at Kari's wonderful booth at Junk Market. It's tucked into the Halloween tree.
Well, I don't have a picture of everything I got, but it's a few things just so you can see how they're fitting in. They're mingling well with the other antiques and decorative elements. They haven't started any fights or even engaged in any name calling. So, success all around I'd say. Also, I wanted to let you know that I'll be out of pocket a bit over the next week. I hope everyone's doing well. Thank you for being such wonderful blogging friends. It really does mean so much to me. Talk to you soon.
