Junkin' Monday & A Blog Party

Yesterday, was a "great" day, albeit a bit "grating" at times....I spent it with my two sisters and Mom. "Great"--being with my family. "Grating" --the auction we went to....wow....slooooowwwww moving. I did end up with some things I was pretty happy with though.

But, the garage sale we went to before the auction was where these lovely finds came from. Aren't these grates----great?!

Art Deco iron...mmmm....I could look at these for a long time.

And these-----well. What can I say? I bought a BIG tub of these old iron fence finials. I haven't counted them yet but I think at least 25 with a lot of other iron fence pieces. (So far, I've only seen one green one in the bunch.) HEAVY. I am just thrilled with these. They look so matronly. Aren't they screaming to be included in an altered art or assemblage project? I know I'll set a couple on shelves to sit at attention keeping an eye on all around them.

Architectural salvage pieces are on the top of my list to hunt for.

I will be selling some so if you're interested shoot me an email to work out the details.

Now, you can pop over to Clara and Marcela's blog to see what they found this weekend for more Junkin' Monday stories! ALSO, there's a great blog party over at Flea Market Style where everyone is sharing some of their favorite finds. Go visit and have fun exploring with all the like minded junkers!
