Take a Look at My $10 Haul! LOL

Local "junk/antique" shop going out of business and a friend and I went down and looked around. Had two sacks of "precious collectibles" and they cost me $10.00! LOL

The tennis racket "thingie" I'm going to use for another picture frame. (Got that idea out of the first JunkMarket book.)The metal scoop of a thing may hold soap/something in the bathroom. The two rocks are highly polished, have felt on the bottom and are bookends. (Gave a $1.00 for them.) The little brush is gonna be hair for a Drew Carey picture (don't ask!). Then there's a set of four old casters. Gonna use them on an old iron grate for a boot dryer. (Also a JunkBeautiful idea.) Two little printer blocks - my DD's initials, a little turquoise colored pill reminder, two neat drawer pulls, fifty cents each, a little wire basket that I'm gonna put a clear glass in and use as a vase, a campy old picture that used to scare me to death as a child (and still kinda does...LOL) some kind of tong thingies, an old glass and metal tray and two pieces of wood that are gonna become the main part of a homemade quilt rack.

You like? LOL

The tongs are for firewood. To move a log once it's in the firebox and is burning. Very handy if you have a fireplace.

Nice haul!

That "Guardian Angel" picture hung in my first grade classroom many years ago. Only it was slightly different. Definetly NOT CREEPY! LOL!

Nice haul!

Scrappyjack, the reason that I was scared of the picture was the fear of the broken wooden bridge over the water. Instead of feeling that the angel was a protector, I felt like she was "hurrying" them across! LOL I taught third grade 11 years and gifted and talented kids 17 years.

Have decided what to do with the two pieces of wood with the "curves" in them. They're going to be the two main pieces of a quilt rack. Gonna paint them shabby chic white (of course) and then use a round dowel/broom handle, etc. for the pole to hang the quilt on.
