Are we collecting JUNK now?

My husband asked as he took a look around our living room last night.

What? I yell from the kitchen as I am cleaning up from dinner.

Are we collecting junk now?

Are you kidding me? These are great "finds" that I have found this past week and I love them.

Oh......long pause from hubs before he flips the channel over to yet another baseball game.

Let me show you what he is talking about.

Meet Richard and Cynthia. Two cute little things I picked up at Goodwill this week for $.90 cents! I didn't have to do one thing to them.

Who could pass up a great bowl(restaurant china) and cute canning jars! Again another purchase form Goodwill for $2.

Ok, I can understand the word "junk" when I first looked at this!
But take a look now! A great little stool for us to use in the bathroom.

Yes, it's another tray. Hard to pass up for $.90 cents.

After a spray paint makeover I think it looks just fine sittin' on our dresser.
Perfect for keys, phone and spare change.

And remember that $10 desk I got? It found it's way into little man's room. He and I found this great chair at a church rummage sale last weekend.

What do men know about "junk" anyway!


  1. Junk? I don't see any junk! Love Richard and Cynthia, and I wish I could enlarge the pictures to see what old books you have! Love that bowl, and the stool too.

  2. Wow! Great makeovers!! :) I esp. like the spray painted tray and the stool reminded me of one we had in our basement bath growing up. I think the fuzzy stuff on it was pink and it made me feel like a princess to sit on it. Yours looks MUCH better!! :) Visiting from Rhoda's party. :)

  3. OH, I love your finds! Those are great, no junk there. That stool turned out fab. Thanks for joining the party!

  4. You found some really great finds and did a great job making them over.

  5. I think your "junk" is great! You found some fabulous stuff.

  6. my husband thinks that sometimes too, but we have been married 29 years and he is finally starting to get used to me.

    your stool makeover is perfect and looks so nice in your bath.

  7. Another man's junk is another woman's treasure.

  8. Men... don't they always think they know best!

  9. Hummm I don’t see any junk just wonderful finds that have made your house a home. I love the pic of the boy and’ll have to make up a fun story about them. The stool and tray turned out great too! I’ve gathered a little collection of cute trays just waiting for fun projects.

  10. You are doing hubby says the same thing....ya, ya ,ya...but, it is a cheap way to decorate....I think he will come around and yours too !
