A new friend

Well I got an email from Valorie of the
Red Shed Girls in Grapevine, TX.
She had business in Tyler today and wanted to know if she could come meet me. I joked with my family that I had a "fan". Anyway, I was free, so I told her to come on. She arrived at my home at 2:30, And she brought me these wonderful goodies from her store. .
There are a couple of old filing dividers with my initials, a beautiful candle and a sweet vintage creamer, Matches to light the candle and a wonderfully sweet smelling home made soap bar. All of these items can be found at her store so check it out. What wonderful gifts, I wish that I were as good at putting little gift bags together as everyone else seems to be. Thank you Val for the goodies.
After a quick tour we headed out to some Local junk spots.
It was fun to see her shop for her store and visit and get to know her. We are both members of the
American Junk Club,
and that is how we know each other. We had a great time I just wish we had more time, and that one of the shops we visited had been open. Here's a pic I snapped, Yes I snapped it that is why I look so funny in it. Can you say "turkey neck". Well at least Valorie looks good.

The only things I got were this fan cage
and some spoons for more Flatware Bracelets. I already have a project in mind for the fan cage.

I thought it would be fun to walk around my house with my camera and take pics of all the Junk I use in decorating. Just the stuff I kept, not stuff that I make to sell. Well I'm a bit overwhelmed at what I've accumulated, but I put it all on one page and you can view it
here if you want.
you can click any picture to enlarge it.
Have a great weekend.

I love everything that you've done.
I totally believe in recycling and always send things to the thrift, since I know someone will find a use for or need something that I can no longer use.

Of course, I always bring home as much as I donate. LOL

Sounds like you girls had great fun! Love those kind of days.

Jennifer said...

I have been so inspired by your site. I did repurpose items before I found your site, but you have given me so many new ideas. If I ever make it to Texas I would love to meet you. If you ever make it to Chicago look me up. I sell my items at a local store in the suburbs of Chicago. Take care!

Need to do another yard sale, and hmmm..maybe a bigger spot @ the resale shop would help me clear some new space! just wish these darn real jobs didn't take so many hours out of my day..LOL...*elaine*

I love that wind chime in the back yard with the wheel and old spindles. Very cleaver.
