About Me

A Few Pictures with My New Camera

Sorry I havent been around...my camera up and died on me and I just got another from my oldest son for Christmas.  I wanted to go ahead and post a few Christmas pictures..not many..not to bore anyone.  I wish this aluminum tree would show up better than this..it really looks much prettier in person. 

     I had landscaping burlap around the bottom as a skirt..but, my weiner dog decided to weewee on it, and I took it up!
     Never mind my ugly kitchen..(Just look at the weiner!)
   I did not have the drive to decorate much this year..bad new runs rampant around here at Christmas-time.
I will be back with my awesome new present and some other goodies!

Against a Brick Wall


Let me just tell ya ladies, This junkin and fixin business is like a crazy obsession....My SUV takes on a mind of her own..and before I know it....well, you know the rest of this story!!  I was just tinkering around, (should have been cleaning) and re-done this brick wall in my sunroom with a old window and shutters. 

Just ignore the music wreath......Old news.....

I added deer antliers to each shutter....

And just sat a old pediment on the top of the window

I found this old typewriter stand at a new junk store here in my little town and loaded it up with my cement birds, old metal box, stamp holder,  etc........ 
I've been lazy with the blogging thing lately.....I'll try to do better!~!           Rhonda

Iam constantly amazed at how time flies!  Remember, when we were kids and longing to be old enough to do what we wanted??  I would give almost anything to have a chance to re-do a few things.  How about you? Well, now that I have totally depressed myself, I will show you my stuff for White Wednesday..
                            Barnacles from Gulf Shores Alabama
                           Old Globe Bank for 99 cents at Goodwill.

Estate Sale Stuff and Some Photos

I really, really wish I was a good blogger and posted more often like you gals!  I have stuff to share most of the time, just no energy to get it done. 

I have mentioned the big estate sale that happens once a month in Mobile before, but I really found a few good things yesterday! (Good stuff to me anyway!) 
                          I have been on the hunt for small crocks, and I found
                                            4 at the estate sale...2 in this photo.....
                                 and the other 2 in this photo. (yes, 2 are alike)
                         I also found the smaller cement planter this time. 
                         I found a larger one a while back.  Iam waiting for
                         my Hydrangeas to get bigger, to fill it up.  Love my Mary
                         collection too!

             Iam hoarding more and more ironstone..
Its a sickness you know.  Somebody help me!!

My "Almost Birthday" Stuff

Hi all, I hope you all had a great Easter!  We just hung out around the house and grilled some elusive steaks!!  Yummoo.  Well, its getting close to my birthday, so I asked for my birthday money a little early so I could visit my favorite junk store.Mr. Bills,..If you want it, he's got it.  I also had a visit with TJ Maxx....Here is what I got from there.......I have never paid 30.00 for a pillow before.......but, well here it is!
I also have been wanting a bus roll or some type of subway art.  I found this at the Maxx too.  It works for me!!

I found this vintage chocolate banner already framed at Mr. Bills and hung it in my kitchen.
Loving those colors and chocolate...of course!!
Also got some great old vintage rulers and put them in my jar..

Look at this really old print I found!  Loving the colors and landscape.  The smaller one is my Granny when she was very young.
A overall shot of the cabinet and the junk therein.

This old heater use to have those brick like thingies across the back.  It was in my Grandmothers house for years..I dug it out of a junk pile at my Dad's. I added my mercury glass I found at Goodwill. 
I found a few other goodies and finally some Lavender!  I'll show that after I plant it!!
Take care Ladies!!  Be back soon!!

I found this huge florist's basket a few days go...I added some of my vintage tennis rackets and sat it in front of my fireplace.
I had also been looking for one of the cement planters and found it at an estate sale last weekend.  This booger is heavy!!  (found the little duck too!!)

Yet another garden item that I have inside.  These awesome cement birds..I have been pineing for some of these for ages!! Found at my most favorite junk store!!

Iam loving this awesome jadite green drink mixer too!!  I found it at the same estate sale!!

I found this silver metal compote bowl at the Goodwill here in my little town.  She was loaded with grease..Yuck...after a good scrubbing, shes looking good!!

Hope you all are having a great day!!  Rhonda

Sepia Tones for White Wednesday

I thought I would try out my lack of photography skills with the sepia tone setting on my camera. I have had the camera for a while, just not much experimenting with it...so what do ya think?

Old tin heart I found at an antiques shop in Mobile, I added the "ribbons".  I wanted this eye chart for the typology. (is that a word?)

My latest and most favorite crucifix, old sap bucket and giant chunk of coral.

I recovered my vintage milking stool with a vintage flour sack.  Ripped up a old green deco scale for the numbered "wheel".  The old bottle under the cloche is kind of silvery and awesome.

I finally was able to find this old vintage glass fish tank, and filled it with display stuffes. 
Hope you have enjoyed my whites...just ignore the dust!  hehe!!
