|"Smile Please" was a special photography book gifted to me by Kathy.|
Smile, please! It's junk time! While at the AAJMS Show in early May, I picked up a few special things. A couple were gifts, a few were freebies, and two were special purchases.
|Freebies from Rockler, a book and sculpture from Kathy, and a patinaed antique brass bath holder.|
My friend, Kim of Rockler Woodworking and Hardware, was there to help teach people about their products. Must-haves for any junker or DIYer if you ask me!! She and my new friend, Linda, were handing out some great freebies. I can't wait to put the foam brushes and painter's pyramids to work! Where have those pyramids been all my DIY life?
One of my purchases was the the soap/sponge holder. It is made of brass and will fit with the vintage bath I will someday own! It has the perfect patina, shape, and design. Love it!
|Kathy's creative handiwork.|
Kathy of Sylvia's Vintage Daughter surprised all of us with her fabulous sculptures made from clock parts, buttons, keys, and wire. Quite ingenious and beautiful. Look at the close-ups for some of the special details...
|The dial and numbers...awesome!|
|Vial of miniscule clock components.|
|A favorite key labeled "JUNKUNC BROS"...the perfect gift from one junker to another.|
Thanks so much, Kim and Kathy, for making my junking trip a successful one. Now, there is one more thing I have yet to show you! It has quite the history!! Here is a photo teaser for you to ponder...
Any ideas what it is?
