I found this old playpen/crib at a place called Class & Trash in Glen Allen, VA...its one of my favorite haunts! I painted it up and added some old wood ...and I think its an awesome set of shelves! I have a small antique booth in town and Im always in the need for interesting display pieces because the customers keep buying them up! I dont think this one will last long...
some recent junk finds: clock faces, architectural pieces, etc. and various glass pieces used as cloches - since I cant ever seem to find the real ones!
..more pretend cloches and garden stuff - gotta love it!

Love this time of year....yard sales, flea markets, and sunshine so I can create outside!

Happy Junking,

I decorated my last booth with old broken clocks, I have had that same blue bucket, enamel pitcher...So you know I gotta LOVE it! Georgia Posted: 6:54 pm on May 9th
