Just for fun (and a little decoration)...vintage magazine advertisements (some of them are so funny!)  (mounted on posterboard), and hung on the metal table top with magnets that we decorated with keys, knobs, etc...
Heres a wonderful collage that Terri made - so many interesting bits and pieces!
Yep - one of our wire cloches with some more silver of course!
These are some of the necklaces Terri makes - with both old and new components - lots of awesome vintage buttons.
Heres a print we picked up at a garage sale I think.  Anyway, we embellished her (we love doing that)  with old lace, buttons, some sparkle, and stuff...  We named her Rosa.
Here she is up close - we even added a necklace - every girl loves a little bling!
Heres a collage I made out of a little wooden drawer.  The theme is New York City - with some great little elements, the small cast iron Statue of Liberty, the playing card, the model in front of the bright lights, the little red apple (for the BIG apple), the crystal ball (for the ball that drops on New Years Eve), etc...  This was a fun one to do.
Heres a close up - some Scrabble pieces, and two wooden game/bingo pieces in memory of 9/11 up in the corner.
Here are two of Terris embellished hand mirrors - lots of bling with vintage jewelry.  These are super sweet! (and always a favorite)
And, here are the lamps I embellished (theres that word again) with antique lace, buttons, and some crystal for - yep,  you guessed it - some bling!
A paperweight - I filled with old white and mother-of-pearl buttons (I really loved this one)
A whimsical collage I made.

Ok - this is it!  Some of our projects that we made to sell at Extravaganza. 

Now to start planning for the next show...

littleluxuries writes: I love this! Did you reuse an old paperweight or was this a new one. I am always looking for paperweights to make or remake but I haven't been able to find any great bases. Yours is really pretty. Also the ones I have used you can only put flat objects (mainly paper ) in them. You obviously had room to add dimension...Stacy Posted: 11:20 pm on October 18th

shabbychick writes: OK - I guess I'll "have" to start scheduling at least a small get-together for sure!

1. Candy is scheduled to be our next door neighbor - her first time as a vendor at Springfield - I'm SO excited!! (And, Candy - hope to see you at Scott's...let's talk!)

2. LuAnn - Springfield Extravaganza will be the 3rd weekend of May...

3. Lani - we may need to get some rooms reserved!

4. Jim - it's closer than Minnesota...does that help? :)

5. Suewannabeinkc - yep - we're in Ohio - here's the website: http://www.springfieldantiqueshow.com/

6. I better start putting together a mailing list - and we can start thinking about our little Buckeye JUNK party!

And thanks all for your nice comments about our projects - I've started to work on some new "junk" for our November show (it really never ends...thank goodness!!)


P.S. Janis - Terri has collaged for a while, and I just started (I made three new ones over the weekend) - they're so much fun. Posted: 11:01 am on October 5th
suewannabeinkc writes: I will have to come to next year's sale. Your pieces are beautiful! Hmm... how far is Springfield from Kansas City? (Ohio, right?)
It's amazing what can be done with bits and pieces many of us already have laying around. Great details and thanks for inspiring us all!

Kathy, it’s a good thing you’re so good at documenting your junk adventures. So far the closest one of your sales has been to Connecticut is 700 miles away. Too far for a weekend drive.

Junk_Sophisticate writes: I too love the button paperweight! You could put all kinds of trinkets under there...but I love the white and cream buttons.

Midge - Definitely mark your calendar for the spring show! I've confirmed with Kathy that I'll be there as well and it would be great fun to have a junker gathering!

Kathy - I just may see you at Scott's! We've chosen to stay in Columbus during Thanksgiving (Wed-Fri) at a waterpark down there. Going to COSI on Friday but I'm going to try to schedule a few hours at Scott's! Fingers crossed!

Great post again, Kathy.

shabbychick writes: Thanks ladies! Midge - glad you've got your calendar marked - looking forward to your visit! Maybe we'll have to have a bit of a "junk potluck"!

Kim - I bought this old paperweight (empty) at an estate sale - and added the buttons, cut a circle out of a piece of a vinyl wallcovering sample that I got from work, and glued it to the bottom. The paperweights are cool because they magnify the contents. Gretchen gave me the idea of using them and I decided to do buttons in this one - I think she had done some for an occasional sale. Hoping to find more...

Such gorgeous stuff! My favorite is the buttons in the paperweight. Did you re-make an old paperweight, or can you buy empty ones? Love it!

junkermidge writes: Another great post, Kathy. Love all the pictures from the Extravaganza. Your collages are really cool. I've already marked my calendar for the spring show. I hope I'll be able to make it and it'd be really cool if some other JMS junkers showed up.

shabbychick writes: Thanks! We have too much fun (if that's possible) with all of our "stuff"!

My fingers are crossed too - hoping for a caravan of members at Springfield in the spring! :) We'll be at the Scott Antique Show in Columbus, Ohio on Thanksgiving weekend - if anyone's nearby!

Hope you're having a great weekend - leaving now to check out a couple garage sales (the season is winding down...darn...!).
