The Junk Fairy blew me kisses

The Junk Fairy blew me kisses yesterday. I went to the A.R.K. (Animal Rescue Kleberg) sale and loaded up! The old apple crate will be great for displaying items when I do the Bishop Centennial Celebration next month. I was also quite pleased to find a bag full of artificial bird eggs. (They are in the short, squatty apothecary jar). The jewelry box still had its key and is in really good shape.

My plans are to cut up the tablecloth to make a nice liner for my rolling shopping cart. No self-respecting junker can go to Round Top without one. LOL. I just know that it is going to be very difficult to make that first cut, but that is what I bought it for. I am looking for a plastic tablecloth to make the lining and the vintage one will go on the outside. I will be on the lookout for some ball fringe. Wouldn't that be sweet? I would like to take it to Wimberley next weekend, so I guess I better get crackin'.

This Gold Metal Cookbook was an unexpected find. It is 100 years old; copyright 1910. It is in incredible condition, too! I can't wait to try out some of its recipes.

What a great haul!!! I love it all! Those tiny china plates with roses are wonderful...and the cookbook was a great score! The plans you have for your shopping cart liner sound adorable...can't wait to see it! I hope you have a great time in Wimberly - it's been YEARS since I've been to the flea market weekend there (I lived in Austin back in the day) I hope it is brimming with glorious goodies!!

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs & Blessings,
Becky
