All my tresures gathered in a bunch!  This would be my ideal bouquet of flowers for Valentines.
My Japanese ironstone.  Someone said these were collectable or awesome or EVERYONE should own a set.....you know who you are.  Whopping .50 a plate!
Oh and of course EVERYONE should own Buffalo China for .75 a plate because they are HOT HOT.  Nut pickers, old shaving mirror, silver scoop, ironstone bowl, silver heart drawer pull and bottle opener.  Everything a girl should own ~ JMS said so and I totally agree!
No one should live without anything silver, rusty lidded jars and butter spreaders.  The asparagus spoon rest was a bonus.  Extra points for that!
I heard somewhere that Woolworth used to have diner counters in their stores so of course this fork was a must purchase as was the Donald Duck knife that is marked Walt Disney and Co. on the back.

My Sweetie ask me what I wanted for Valentines and of course my immediate response was Junk.  He laughed and said, "no really".  I said REALLY.  He said I was SUPPOSE to ask for something like flowers or chocolate or diamonds.  How cliche............ok I want diamonds AND junk I reply.  He just shook his head and took me to the thrift store.  Every treasure I picked up came with my incessant chatter about how it was well sought after and what a good buy it was and how " insert name" said these were all the junk rage.  He then had the nerve to look at me and say, "If JMS jumped off a bridge, would you jump too?"   My mind was screaming yes yes yes but I guess my face was saying ~ you better be buying me diamonds too.  Heehee  I got both!!!!!!  (I really would have been totally satisfied with just junk)

If I come across something great I have to sell something I have...if I don't our house would be so loaded up that I wouldn't want to become a reality tv show lol....love all your stuff!

When he asks about a vacation, we both want the same thing, a a road trip and to go junking. Those that junk together stick together... I say.

RoseGardenRomantic writes: That is so funny! My hubby knows all I ever want for a present is to go searching for old junk! :) He just hands me some cash and says "have fun!" And he claims to "love" all my girly stuff and junk. I'm a lucky girl!

RustyDiva writes: Ladies I AM a lucky girl! He brings me junk all the time but I think he would rather stick a fork in his eye than go to a thrift store with me so it was VERY sweet for him to endure the torture for Valentines. LOL

greencolleen ~ I think boys are conditioned to think that all we gals think about is diamonds. They don't know how to act when we just want "junk". :)

JunqueMagnet ~ there would probably be A LOT of us jumping! How fun and of course it would have to be off a rusty, chippy, industrial, shabby old bridge. ha

Laurel ~ I couldn't see it so I went home and held my mirror up to the wall. Cool idea and I never would have thought about it. I'll keep my eye out for another one and maybe we'll be partners in the junk swap.

Hope you ALL had a special day for Valentines!!!!!!

chippingcharm writes: There is just so much to love about a junk gift! You get the thrill of the hunt, someone else pays and then you spend the next few days or more figuring out what you want to do with it all...AND THEN, you post your fun ideas and we all get to enjoy it too. It's the gift that keeps on giving :)
Enjoy! Laurel
PS...I've been on the look-out for old shaving mirrors like that...lucky you! I've seen them hanging sideways off the wall for a really fun candle sconce...can picture it?
