OK, what has happened to me?

I have gone nuts. I went to Scott's Antique Market near Atlanta this past Saturday and had such a great time with my husband and son (I did almost melt but that's Georgia humidity)

BUT, what I've discovered is . . . I love JUNK. Cast off items that no one loves anymore. Broken watches, metal pieces that belonged to something, who knows what, crazy old buttons, pins and single earrings with no mates . . . I love it all.

I see them all in artwork and having a new home where they will be treasured again. Take a look at my simple little finds:




I see a wonderful assemblage coming soon inside this metal clock case!

We LOVE junk!! That's part of what makes us sisters in spirit...isn't it???

While our families and friends in the real world may not "get it" ~ we have each other out here in blogworld to ooh and ahh over the things we find and love.

And I DO love all your finds!

Just love your blog. I have been looking in and your love junk comments cracked me up. I have the same problem and old watches are my newest obsession. What lucky finds, Happy hunting.

Hey one man's junk is another woman's treasure. People are no longer shocked if I retrieve their cast offs. Happy hunting.

What a kindred spirit! One of my very favorite things is to find a bag of trinkets all grouped together. Love all of your treasures, can't wait to see what you do with them.

Hugs,
