    I certainly thought I bought more but I guess since they were mostly smaller things they just seem to be much. I did find a cool yarn shop and of course came home with more yarn and a new coffee mug that has Gauge Smauge on the side....knitters and crocheters will gist of that.

    Okay, on to the junque..
    Little planters I just bought some succulents for, a display of shrooms, a bamboo tube for ??? just liked it and the two red pots will become water ladles for two of the rain barrels out back. And the little bud vase was too cute to leave sitting alone on the shelf.

    A neat rusted tin box to plant something in....two smallish wooden bowls that will be used in our bathroom.....the small half finials are going to be painted red and attached to the cross bar of the new screen pantry door Randy is planning how to make

    The cabinet is 13" tall, 10"wide and 8" deep. Since we are going old cabin rustic in our bathroom redo, it will hang on the all to hold 1st aid items.
    J3.JPG This box was just too cool to pass up, not sure where it will go yet but I really love it.

    Photo of closed box and NO the cat isn't in it. We did have to get him out before the lid could be closed though, he figured it might just be his.

    This shelf will hang out back in my cleaned up and organized part of the backroom....

    I have this 'thing' about small tables among a whole passel of other things too.

    And this was just begging me to bring it home. I am thinking in a large pot with a Mandevilla climbing up and around it.

    Sooo many goodies and cool stuff!! I have just been given a little table similar the one you picked up and I use it every day in my craft room. I really like the mushrooms, bud vase, pots, planters and finials. I'd bore holes in the bamboo, stick a couple of dowels through it (for perches) and a string to hang it up. Then I'd drill bigger ones and fill it with fat cake for the birds.

    I am constantly amazed at your ability to see possibilities in "junque". I especially like the wooden bowls--they look like miniature dough trays.
    Let us see what you make/do with your finds. Those of us who are artistically challenged can derive inspiration from your "junque".

    I think you've outdone yourself this time Toni. My favourites would have to be the rusted tin box and the oddly shaped wooden box. All the junque finds are pretty cool actually. Thanks for sharing them with us nosey parkers!
