Junk with Rebecca...

Today my big girl and I were sick of the beach. Sick of the sand, sick of sunscreen and sick of summer.

Since David and Lily needed more beach time, Rebecca and I did the only thing that two girls unencumbered by a husband and a little sister could be expected to do.

We junked.

Having Rebeca with me, noticing things and just being cheerful was the greatest prize of the day.

I will not allow that child to ever move away. Resolved.

Anyway, on this adventure I brought my camera and the battery. Let's go!

That quilt is for Francis. I should have taken another photo up close so that you could see all of the state birds a bit better.

After we junked, we stopped for this.

I did come home with a few treasures.

This iron plant holder thingy was originally $45, but it was marked down to $5. I snapped that baby up speedy quick!

Puglsey is there to provide scale.

Do not ask me where I am going to put this. It is an unimportant detail. It was $12 and it needed a home.

Okay. Seriously, I don't know what I am going to do with this old vegetable bin. But it's rusty. And turquoise. And chippy. And it was only $6!

 I found this thermos at the Salvation Army in Hyannis when I was shopping on Friday.

It's from England! That means it's fancy.

Finally, I picked up an "S". I love letters, especially letters which have meaning in my life.

It was a perfectly lovely afternoon with a perfectly lovely child.

Delight, bliss and love.

Thanks for the sweet feast! I like the dollhouse and the old furniture AND the nourishment.

Francis, if you click on that quilt then click again with the magnifier thingy, you can actually see all the birds really well. Sara, you done good posted it so big. Yes, I want it.

Hi, Sara--Thanks for the quilt picture, (and Cheryl I will magnify it (thanks for the tip!)). You have no idea how much I want to go junking with you (and Rebecca!) one of these days. How on earth do you find so much great stuff? I want to know your secret!

Amazing junk! I like the scale and the turquoise bin would be nice for magazines or something.

We don't have good junk like that around here.
