When you go junkin', do you buy with your heart, head or both?
Definitely both for me. Sometimes I have a specific need in mind. Then something really charming comes along and just sweeps me off of my feet, lol.
On a recent junkin' outing, I found a creamy pottery vase, a tattered book of poems, well loved crochet napkins, a darling pearl pin and a vintage jewelry box.
The tattered book of poems ~ that was the heart charmer.
The colors, the title - I love its aged beauty.
The crochet napkins were somewhere in between the functional and heart strings purchase. I like to use cloth napkins (less paper we have to buy). It makes me giggle when friends and my kids' friends come over and ask "Can we really use these? You don't mind?"
Why not enjoy the good things in life, eh? They are only napkins after all.
Isn't this pearl pin sweet?!
I thought this would make a lovely component to a repurposed jewelry piece.
It is going straight into the vintage Miele jewelry box.
Old jewelry boxes can be fun, decorative storage. And for what some plastic or cardboard storage costs these days - the vintage type is both cute and functional.
Functional or heartfelt - such happy finds lately!
What are your favorite finds?
Thanks for stopping by!
