Junking Bliss

I don't know how else to describe my Wednesday in Warrenton other than to say blissful.  A storm had blown through the night before and the weather was cool, and sunny - a perfect day for junking.  I stopped at Newman's Bakery in Bellville and enjoyed breakfast.  I have {former} friends who revealed a sweet antique mall down the street, Nothing Ordinary, so I made a stop.   Want to see what I found there?

Do you not love these cats on wooden spools?  I think they are so sweet!  I want to make one.


Purple.  His and Hers hand towels.
And the honking crystal - came from Warrenton. 
Biggest crystal pendant I have.

 I ask you, if your air quotes friends air quotes were holding out on you on a place like this, would you disown them?  Around eleven I made my way to Warrenton And after walking around for 6 hours, I finally went home.  With this.


Music Cylinders.  $5 each.  I saw today that
Cathe Holden is teaching a class using these at Silver Bella.

Some sugar molds.  The duck was $5.  A mail slot, sprinkler and hardware. 

Some of what I saw in Warrenton
Probably my favorite is the map with "recalculating".  She also owned that cute little camper that she used for her business cards.  A-dor-a-ble.  My favorite was meeting Karen from Birmingham.  She had some gorgeous burlap curtains and lampshades.  She has a bed in her display AND THEY SLEEP THERE AT night... What a fantastic idea!  The cross was also at her booth - I wish I could have captured the vibe in her booth because it was inspirational.  The doll heads, wooden shoe form and chandelier are from West End Architectural Salvage from Des Moines.  Very hip.  The cowboy visiting in the upper right - it was just so Texan.

I saw some dough bowls and chenille bedspreads and bought neither.  Because.  That's just how I am sometimes.  I think I should go back Saturday morning.  Whaddayathink?

I think you should go back. After making plans for months to go for 3 days....I didn't get to go. But my other friends went...are still there this morning I believe. Great stuff you saw...and I love those cylinders. I had never seen those til this morning on the Silver Bella list.
