I think this needs a bigger globe ~ maybe a big red one.  Hobby Lobby summer clearance here I come!
Rusty arches
Potential table base and what to do with all those racks!?
Yummy ~ what to do with these?
There are 2 of the candelabras and several individual roses to light my 3 acres.

I tell a tale of treasured finds ~ Most of which are the rusty kind

 A dusty old house, my parents bought ~ The owners walked away without a thought

 Leaving rooms and rooms full of stuff ~ That had to be picked through and buffed

 Boxes of old books, clothes and shoes ~ Pottery, pictures, dishes and mystery goo

 Tucked in a corner of a dark dark room ~ I spied rusty flowers ready to bloom

 Arches and tall towers, metal racks and more ~ I hurridly gathered and headed for the door

 Everyone laughed and said, "Go ahead" ~ No one else wants it and there's more in the shed

 So now I share my pictures with you ~ And the story that EVERY junker wishes would come true!

You've got some great stuff to play with - can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for letting us in on your fairy tale finds! :)

Your eye for good junk is even brighter.
My mom had renters like this years ago;
But I didn't find GOOD junk there and so,
Of you I am jealous, there is no doubt;
Can't wait to see how all this stuff turns out.
Your story is great! I'm filled with laughter;
I'm sure your finds're happy e'er after!

A lot of the 40's dresses and shoes fell apart when we tried to clean them up and most of the "soft" stuff was ruined by large pets that were allowed to relieve themselves in the house. It was a very stinky place for awhile and the back part of the house had to be demolished. We are still finding stuff and probably will for awhile. I really do feel like a "junk princess" :)

Alice ~ you are welcome anytime! Just let me know when you're in the area and we'll go junkin!
