Another big, fat juicy post!

OK. Sometimes I can't help myself.
I have so much to share with you and it seems I cram tons into one post!
First, here is a precious gifted photo....and I'm gifting it to you as well ~
I think it should be titled "Friends"....

Well, I moved our teeny, tiny pile of goods into our space today and
to be honest with was pitiful!!!
I couldn't even take a shot of the whole space or
you would have laughed a big ol' belly laugh at me ~
So, we are DEFINITELY going junkin' today...
Here are the few photos I took ~

I received some sweet mail love that I just have to share with you ~
Deborah of Confessions of a Junkyard Cat used to be a dealer in
the little antique store I owned and has just started blogging
and will soon be selling some of her gorgeous things online too....
well, I've always, always loved her amazing taste!!!
She sent me the most wonderful gift in the mail
and I just have to share the trinkets and treasures with you!

Are you drooling yet??

Thank you so, so much sweet Deborah!!!!!
Everything's just divine and I love each and every thing!

There's so much love in blogland ~
Not a day goes by that it's not shown....
Precious Donna of Brynwood Needleworks
sent the most intricate little Valentine to me!!!
Each little bead is sewn on...sweet tiny stitches of love ~
Thank you so, so much dear Donna,
I will treasure it always!!

So wish me junkin' luck....
but don't worry,
a little good luck charm is coming along today!!!
Clara says "hi!"

Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear friends!!!!
much love,

I love treasure hunting and haven't been in ages. Your treasures remind me of some old items I have of my Grandma's and perhaps my Great Grandma's like the basket on the top shelf and the old hand made lace and sewing items. Your post goes perfectly with a movie I'm watching on TV... A Masterpiece Classic: Return to Cranford on this cold and kinda rainy night here in LA... Im missing my Mom and Grandma and Grandpa. I am glad to know you appreciate the old things from long ago as it makes me feel not so alone.

I am always so inspired by your blog. Today was no exception.
Baby Clara is truly precious.
Good Luck!!!

Vee said...

Oh yes! You simply must go junkin'. It's for a good cause. Now that's going to make a big fat post soon we all hope. Getting Clara into the junkin' habit early I see! Excellent. Your friend did indeed send you many delights and I was wishing that I could reach right through the screen and do a little shopping myself. Off to follow your link.

(Everything loaded up like a charm in here today. I think that there have been gremlins about in Blogland.)

Hi Dawn!

Oh my what a treasure trove of goodies!!! You must be in heaven! I wish you much good luck and success with your new shop. You will have it filled before you know it. I bought a bear to make one like you did. I love the idea of the little watch face. Where can I find one? I don't want to buy the whole watch. thanks! Little Clara is getting cuter by the day if that's possible!


Unknown said...

Sure wish I could tag along!!!! I love the bottles in your little space-the big glass ones with the stoppers. Beautiful!!!
It will be a great space in no time at all!!

stefanie said...

Anonymous said...

Dear Dawn, I know EXACTLY why your little booth is not yet full enough! Because, my sweet friend, you're probably KEEPING most of your finds! ;-)
Hugs! Enjoy today's hunt!!

Gypsy Heart said...

Sandi said...

Hi Dawn! Isn't it amazing how much you need to fill a booth and not have it look empty?? Amazing how much I need in my little 4 x 6 booth too! We took our little good luck charm along to town with us today and she is a joy!!!!!!!

Loving all your goodies!!

Linda Jo said...

What wonderful treasures!!! I adore that little brown doll coat! Isn't it wild the things that we just fall over ourselves about?

Mona said...

Just wanted to say that the picture you've called 'Friends' should probably be called 'Sisters.' Either that or 'Friends Who Have the Same Large Ears.' LOL.

Charlene said...

Dawn I love all the goodies you got in the mail! Blog love mail is the best! Hope you & Clara found some good stuff while you were out today. She is adorable!!! Keeping a shop full & fluffed is a LOT of work!!!! I did it for 15 years. HUGS! Charlene

Cora said...

Drooling? Oh this stuff...Good luck to you!

Romeo said...

Meowllo Auntie Dawn ;)

I'm glad you got your package and that you are enjoying it! It made me happy to be able to send it and share some of "her" stash.

Your space will grow and soon be filled up. Not to worry, you always found the cutest stuff and should I also remind you of all the fantastic stuff you create?! See, there really is not problem at all :)

And little Clara?!? Oh my, I could give her LOTS of whiskers smoochies - she is a perfect doll!!!

I hope you found good things and even more so I hope you had a great time!!

Hugs and Luff to mew!

Elizabeth said...
