Yep...this beauty was in my junk packages...how lucky am I???
I have some summer plans for this vintage juicer...to be continued...
A perfectly tarnished footed silver tray, a bundle of Scrabble letters (always handy!) and little wooden hearts...even an original piece of art.  Fun huh?
The rest of my cool junk loot...
Another peek at the way cool gear she sent me...already on display in my porch.  And if another idea hits me, I can grab it and go with it...
This fun shoe mold was the perfect place to prop an old book and a special photo...
And Maries wire angel watching over us from above...
And heres the fun piece of art, signed and dated by Marie herself.  It looks great among the bright treasures in my family room...

I have so enjoyed thinking over my stash of goodies from Marie aka "oldnews".  As a mommy of "little people" I don't get to dive into projects as I'd like to...I know, someday...but I thought I'd share pictures of my cool new "junk" and a few of the pieces that went right to work, "AS IS" in my decorating...

Thanks again Marie for the great junk and thanks to Sue for the perfect Junk Swap partner!

And, what a sweet piece of artwork she sent! I see you're having fun with everything - and have definitely made a new friend - that's what the swap is all about!
