I Love treasure junking! Seeing discarded treasures along the road or at the local dumpster, gets the adrenaline pumping! Sometimes, my husband cant believe the things that I drag home, turn out to be such expensive pieces of art!!! He likes the money though! I am an arist, scuba diver, equestrienne, short story writer, poet, and best of all, A JUNKER!!! My home is done in early attic potpourri, no rhyme or reason, from lace to burlap, crystal to styrofoam! Whatever works for the moment. Give me ducktape, a hammer, a nail, and I can fix it. Give me junk, and I can create it! LOVE IT LOVE IT!

Wall Piece

Found a mirrored "window" for $1.00, a wood shelf for 75 cents, and some discarded shutters in a dumpster.  I put it all together and it made a wonderful, unique wall piece!  It was so easy...

Cracker House Window with a Scene

Found window at a yard sale for a $1.00 and knew I could do something with it.  Got out the old brushes and started to paint!

Re: Vintage Leather Suitcase

Love the decor!!! I did something similiar back in my early years of "after the divorce" era! Had a set of 3 old matching suitcases of my grandmother's. Needed an end table, and Zam-Sham, they appeared with a new look! Boomers get it done!!

Re: Cracker House Window with a Scene

Thanks to all of you who have commented on my picture! Candy asked about the paint that I used. I just had some old folk art acrylics around the house, and used them. After I finished the painting, I sprayed a real light coat of Sealer on it, then later on put a heavier spray coat of clear protectant on it! I just use whatever is available! It was the first time that I have picked up a paint brush since the hurricanes of 2004, came through and ruined all of my good brushes. The brushes I used on this painting came from a child's painting kit I picked up at a yard sale for 25 cents. I think I might get some good brushes again! But again, thanks for all of the positive comments! It made me feel good!
