Junkin Today and a Winner!

I was SO going to work in the flower beds today, I was SO going to Clean and organize,,,,but instead, after recent hectic days, I went Junkin' and Antiquing!

My first stop? Was at the newly relocated "M&M Antiques" in Monroe, Washington. The new store looked GREAT,,,tons of new Vendors, lots of "Yummy Goodness" from friends/Vendors I know and love! This new store ROCKS! I managed to get out of there with some Cotton Laces and a China plate.......

I don't EVER seem to get enough of this "Cotton "Lacey" goodness! If you haven't yet checked out their new local,,,,,,make it a priority!

No trip to Monroe is complete without a stop at the Goodwill Thrift Store!( I won't say WHO I ran into there,,,,,but lets just say they are BOTH cute as the Dickens and run a Fantastic Day spa in Snohomish!)

It was a Four Star day for me at Goodwill,,,,,,,"Kitchy" bead and pin basket..

A couple of Vintage slips.......

Cottons and Lycra,,,,,,,,,,

I've been collecting some "Beach Kitch" for a while,,,,,and I loved this aquarium piece and this OTTER, made out of little shells, complete with moving eyes! They'll either end up on my sitting porch, or in my Funky Bathroom!

Today, I also found this upright Vintage Buxton Jewelry Chest, that will be GREAT in my Art Studio. I've never seen one quite like this,,,,it was $10 bucks, but I think it will be GREAT for "Bits and Bobs."

I also found this Vintage "Orcas Island" souvenir Pennant. I LOVE this! I spent a couple of Summers back in the ahem,,,,,,,6o's at a Camp on Orcas Island...... (One of the largest of the San Juan Island Chain that runs from Washington State into Canadian Waters.....Beautiful!)

My LAST find shown MAY be the most valuable. I found a plate at Goodwill with Meissen Markings on it's underside,,,,,,it appears to be authentic Meissen,,,,but we'll see!

Okay,,,and Finally? I used the "Random Number Generator" and drew up #5 which is my friend LISA Davies or Sequim Washington! (Email me Lisa and let me know if I have your Current addy!)

Thank you ALL for Entering. This was the smallest group I've ever had for a giveaway, honestly. And I think, the Garden Crowns are gorgeous! I'll be having another giveaway soon, so stay in touch!

I hope your week is going well!

Hugs, love and a "Junkin Bus to you all!


  1. The Meissen is a beauty! What a lovely day. I think I'm overdue for a trip to the Northwest. I've never been to the San Juan Islands and I know I would enjoy it. Another place to visit on my ever expanding list. Hugs!

  3. Congrats of sweet Lisa for winning your lovely giveaway. She is a sweetheart and such a deserving winner.
    I had to laugh that you wanted to organize and clean but went shopping. Life is too short Shell not to do what you really want to be doing so glad you chose the shopping look at the great finds you found while out.
    Hope all is well for you and that you had a lovely Mother's Day.
    Love ya
