I went Junkin with a friend on Thursday and we made a stop at one of my fave shops near my home. The shop is Lucky Junk and I have to say my heart always beats a little faster when I enter this shop. Friends Janet and Bill own this wonderful shop of Joy, fun and oh so much fabulous!
I will let some of the pictures show you why my heart beats faster! I took the pics with my cell phone camera so not the greatest but you can see the chippy, crusty, rusty love in this shop.
|Welcoming pink old Schwinn bike outfront. Nothing says "come on in there is great stuff here" like a cute bike at the entry!|
|Yep! You want chippy, rusty, crusty, vintage love it is all here in this shop. Love the mailbox grouping on the wall. How sweet are those?|
|I am obsessed with these shutter doors. Oh My the length and thin chippy goodness to these. I still am thinking about where and what I could do with these beauties.|
|Sweet angel napping on that absolutely fabulous yellow chippy table. Love!|
|Just one chippy or rusty piece after another.|
|This scrolly pure piece of joy came home with me from Lucky Junk. I have a few ideas for this lovely piece. Stay tuned!|
|There were two of these babies. Look at the arch in this cabinet door. Ohhhhh love at first site.|
|Oh yeah just enough chippy joy on this cabinet door. Not sure where it will end up just yet but believe me it will end up some place special.|
It was a nice summer day to get together with a friend and do some junkin together.
******Change ups in my Office******
Summer is going way to fast for me. I see all the fall and even some Christmas stuff coming out in the stores and I think oh no not yet!!!!!!!
After that harsh winter I am savoring every summer day I have.
I was in a cleaning mood this past week end and started to clean out the storage room in my house and hubby cleaned out the shed and when we finished those two big jobs I thought maybe I would do a little change up in my office. Second wind I guess!
Nothing big just some change arounds. It is amazing what little movement can do in a room.
|My office before I started the switcheroo this week end.|
|Little rearranging of my office was the plan. These old french doors are the wall divider that separates my office area from the dining room.|
|I started by moving my desk over to this area of the office space. I like it better because the light comes in that window to the left side.|
|I am using on of the dining room chairs that has the magazine pocket in the back for my new office chair.|
|This is one of two pretty chair covers I got when I was out at the White Show in April in Wrentham, Ma.|
|Yep love the natural light that shines on me when I am on the computer.|
|This area is where my desk use to be in front of this old Chicago private investigators office door. I put my scrolly keeper I just found junkin in this space.|
|I need to find some fun things to put in this crusty, chippy, scrolly holder. I did put my collection of old alarm clocks. Just need to find some more cute stuff to put in here.|
|I like the open feel now in this small space I have for an office. This use to be a closet at the back of my dining room. Much better as a little office space.|
|Junk Happens in my office and this is where I try to contain most of it!|
|Love to have some of my family photos around me in my office along with the million magazines and decor books I collect!!!!|
|I still have this cute lamp on my desk that I found a while back. Love that it has cute tiered rusty shelves.|
|My trustee assistant is not too impressed with all the movement in my office. Shortly after I took this shot of her she took a nap. I guess seeing me move all the stuff in and out of the office was just too exhausting for her LOL!|
|My grand dog Penny was staying with us this week end and she was a little more impressed with all the movement and change ups!|
