Toys, playtime and an owie...

This old cupboard is to die for and has
always been a piece that I display my soaps in.
Sweet huh...and Lorie and I have dragged it from
one shop to the other AND it went to Florida
and back with me for display in my shop down there...
you might say it has mileage!
But isn't it perfect, as it starts to fill with soaps for
the Junk Asylum.

Lorie and I were moving stuff all day from the old store
to the new, when she showed me this cool plant stand,
did I mention I'm a sucker for plant stands...
and especially funky ones made out of odd stuff...
sawtooth palm fronds...
who knew!!!

How cool is this, the top is covered in old velvet,
but anything Florida trips my trigger and Lorie
knows my love of strange, so she gave it to me...
don't ya just love my cement alligator...
I happen to have a stuffed alligator that will
sit perfect on top of it...
SWEET!!!

A truckload comes home...
shutters saved for projects to come and tables n chairs...

The caning in rough shape, this old chair will
get a new cushion, but it has great bones...

Cute lil' blue and yellow table, again, great bones...

Not sure what I'll do with this table, but,
isn't it the bomb...

Oh yeah, my owie...
this is what your finger looks like after it gets shut
in a drawer on a steamy Iowa day...
bent...
it's not broken, but quite sore and stiff, but
nuthin' stops us crazy ones from gettin' the job done...
see ya at the new
Junk Asylum!!!

Ouch on the owie! I hate getting them that way.

I love all your goodies. Unfortunately my DH doesn't share the same tastes in things, sigh
