Junk Party


Go on over to

me n my house
to see every one's 'junk'
for this one special party!!!

I'm also combining this with

Vintage Thingies Thursday
vintage thursday
Thrift Store Thursday

Be sure to check out these wonderful blogs.

OK. Here is my post.
My fella would certainly say it is junk,
but they are 'treasures' to me. =0)

Like this scale. I don't know how old it is,
but who says junk can't be new. =0)
(and it's cream, so ya' gotta love it!!)
And you know these old cast iron whatever's are old.
The silver tray, a dime a dozen,
but you can do so many fun things with them.

This cute metal, very heavy metal,
shelf is from a church sale.
It had a price tag from a gift hosp on it.
Would you believe i got it for $2.00?
(of course you would. I just told you)

Love that old looking frame.
The old door knobs
were a great find at $3.00 each!!

And embroidery. Who can ever have enough of it?

This was a fun find.
It is an old newspaper that was wrapped around
the heavy glass cake dome i got. for $2.00.

The little bird things are very common,
but good filler at the store.
And the clock, nice, but nothing extraordinary.

But the other two,
they are my faves!!

That beautiful mirror,
and the glass dish that go with it.
And, the piece de resistance,
The old fan.
Absolutely lovin' it!!!

Be sure to thank our wonderful hostesses.

Miri said...

Great finds! Love the fan but my favorite has to be the cast iron corn dog pan!

The Starr Family said...

That scale is a fabulous find... I found an old hanging one for my laundry room! Great "junk"!

Keetha Broyles said...

The "old cast iron whatevers" are molds for baking cornbread. I've seen them used - - - well, not your exact set - - - but another set very like it.

Evy said...

I love everything you've found! Every single one is such a sweet piece of 'junk' because it's just so perfect!

SueLovesCherries said...

Fun, fun, fun! That cornbread pan is a great find. My faves are the door knobs and the mirror/jar set.

ClassyChassy said...

I like the old fan!!! Brings back memories - without government control on everything, of course.

Vicky said...

Hi barb, I want the flowery mirror and matching dish!;)
Thanks for visiting and commenting at my blog.

Postcardy said...

That old article is so amusing. I bet we're all on the "road to confusion."

Paige said...

Wow, you found some great stuff!

★Carol★ said...

Oh, you found lots of goodies! I can never pass up a cheap scale, love the white metal shelf, and that fan is so cute. Great finds!

Holly said...

Barbara Jean, you are a serious thrifter! I love that metal shelf, and the fan is really cool. My grandma used to make the best, crunchy cornbread in one of those cast iron corn cob pans.

Unknown said...

OH the irony of the newspaper article! That's priceless. And isn't heavy metal and church an oxymoron or something? Should those two things go together! Love your stuff!

Beca said...

Great treasure hunting! I like it all.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful finds!

Susan said...

Truly one man's junk is another man's treasure. So many things I got rid of I wish I had back (some things I see you got). I guess it becomes a question of time and space--at one time I saw it as junk and I still don't have the space to keep it all.

LV said...

Some folks may call your finds junk, but I think they are great.

Bea said...

Great treasures. I too love that fan!

Kellie said...

Great finds. The newspaper clipping is funny! I was born in 1979.

Kristal said...
