A rainy, junky day!

First, a sweet, chubby bird for you!!!
I found it in a very old book and cleaned it up in Photoshop ~

Well, we've done it again!!!
Not really me, I'm quite innocent (as always :)
but Dennis has rented a small space at an antique mall!!!
We both love Antique Griffin and Phyllis who runs it ~
plus it's just a couple of minutes from where
he works so it will be super convenient!
And of course, I have to get involved because I just love all things old....
so today we headed out in the rainy weather and went junkin' ~

We found some wonderful things and of course,
I found a few goodies for me too.
We were in an antique mall, which wasn't very junky at all,
and we came across these two spaces
that were the the same dealer
and I just had to take some photos for you!!

Click on the photos so you can see more detail ~

Neat, huh? We had the best time ~ even Noah came along and had fun!
So I've been cleaning and removing gummy stuff from things where
the tag doesn't peel off well, getting it ready for the space ~
I'll be sure to take some photos of the goodies we found too!

Have you had a chance to sign up for Artist Class yet?
It starts in just a few weeks!!
What I love about being involved in Artist Class
is that there is such a variety of projects offered.
Plus if you've never tried creating a different
type of artwork, there will be step-by-step photos for you to follow....
Just click HERE if you're interested and
type in thefeatherednest for 10.00 off the price!

Wishing you a very restful Sunday dear friends ~
hugs and love,

What a creative and interesting space....definitely would have caught my eye too! I used to stop in Griffin on my way to Atlanta a few years back, and as I recall, there were several antique malls and shops. Best wishes on your new adventure, and looking forward to pics of your stuff and space!

I love the cotton branches in the basket albeit a short lasting display in my home because of the cats...
Looking forward to a glimpse of your goodies.
Enjoy your Sunday too.

What wonderful treasures to be found here-the hairs on the back of my neck stood up when I saw the dress form. Some day! The little birdie is so sweet. Joyce

Wonderful, but then that is to be expected from you and your fabulous taste! Good luck, I know it will be a "favorite" of many shoppers. xoxo Lidy

I love the junkin' malls also. I have had a spaces in the past and need to find one again. I think I have learned a little bit about how to sell better but I was losing money or just breaking even so I moved out of them only to regret it now.

What would I grab from those booths? Oh so hard to decide! Maybe the dress form if not too expensive as it doesn't look that old. Or, the birdbath, I just found one in a rock pile so I really could get something else as I have two, but I know you can never have enough for the birds. Definitely the dog and bobbin spool, also a couple of gourds. In fact, I wrote about my rock collecting today on my blog!
Smile, Cyndi

Very beautiful pictures, Dawn! Oh, and I -love- the chubby little bird. It reminds me of being with my Grandma when I was little! (Thanks for the memories)! Your hubby -likes- antiques and to go junking?? Holy cow! If that is catchy for husbands, please send the virus my way!
