gone a junking finds

Yep it is almost Monday again. This is the week that my sweet MIL and I go on our annual girls trip to Canton, Texas.  I have my wish list ready and am chomping at the bit.  This past weekend I was able to drag Mr. Brilliant from the woods to do a little pre-Canton shopping. (Hey I needed some practice, it's been almost a whole week since I did any good junking.) I have had my eye on a retro chair for a couple of weeks and couldn't decide.  We junk lovers know that only one of  two things happen when you finally make up your mind  to buy it: 1. it's gone or 2. you  break your neck trying to get it out of the store and loaded.  Needless to say I got it!  Now I don't think Mr. Brilliant was too happy.  He thought it was  hideous, but he loves me (love me love my mess). Therefore, he quickly loaded it along with the chippy table.  (I actually got a 2fer here....better price if I took both...he twisted my arm.)  Still working on lots of projects at the cottage but here are a few pics.  I picked up the lamp last week for a few bucks. (The shade will be replaced soon.)  The mirror was also another flea find at one of my regular haunts $5 (lurve cheap)  Peace.
