Finds, Banner and Junk Bonanza

These are my finds from the Junk bonanza, above and below. See the clothespins, they are from Europe! Love the mini word cards and pumpkins. It was fun just looking at all the "STUFF"! The little Halloween hat was a great buy. Love the little fabric pumpkins too.









Here are all my banners. Finally hung them up in my craft room. Sorry the photo isn't good. Very hard to get them all in. See the one on the right, blue colors...that was from Diane. She sent it to me to make my heart feel better! Very Kind! Thank you, Diane! She makes very sweet paper treasures too, to sell...just a little FYI!!







This is from Junk Bonanza. Lots of small, bits and pieces for sale this year!






LOVE this booth. Very "shabby", pretty and creative! Thought of you, Carol and your Mannie Party!! I have a few more photos, but didn't want to bore you! Plus I haven't figured out how to get more photo space, or whatever it's called...or I should say that I'm running out of photo space.






Look who I saw selling there!!! Linda from Itsy bits & pieces! She is just a sweetheart! She is coming to the "Blogger Gathering" on the 29th...I can hardly wait to visit with her! Are You Coming??!!
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for your heart felt comments about MaryElla...I wasn't able to go to her funeral, long story, however it's okay as I have the memories and know she is in heaven.

Thank you, Marge for the card!!! XO

Hubby's birthday this week, after hours work night at Auntie M's, starting Bible Study Fellowship on Thursday, study is Genesis and Vintage Cottage on Friday! Guess this week will fly by!

Warmly,

deb

Still thinking of you and your sweet BFF Mary Ella. You know I went to BSF years ago, and we did the study on Genesis. Studying the life of Joseph was the best one I've ever done.

Faye said...

Oh I wish I could have gone! I've been thinking of it off and on today and yesterday...but on the other hand...I am happy to be out here too. Next year for sure! I'm glad you got to go and that you saw Linda...I'm looking forward to the 29th, I expect I'll be back by then. I did hit the garage sales here again today, not very many but I found a few neat things.

Stephanie said...

How fun! You have some great finds and I love the three white pumpkins...so cute!

Deb-
I went to JB early bird on Thursday - wish I could have met you there! It was my first time and in line met two fun ladies who had heard of our Farmgirl Country Sales!!! What a wonderful way to start the day! I bought a few little things too and then we went to Anoka to The French Flea, Thrift Cellar, and Nic, Nac, Paddywack...not sure the spelling is right but what a great day! Not sure I can make it on the 29th but I will figure it out and let you know soon!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

You found some nice things, Deb! Love those word cards. I went to an antique mart on Friday and I was a bit disappointed that I didn't find some things I was hoping for. I did get five white napkins, but that was it after an hour and a half.

Deb, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend. What a good one you were to her.
The idea of a junk booth sounds like such fun. You found so many great things to use in crafts.
I hope you have the best time at your bloggers meeting. I need to see if there is one in Ohio.
Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

Hi Deb,

First I need to say how very sorry I am to hear of your dear frined Mary Ella's passing. It's nice to know though that you were able to visit with her one last time while she was still alert enough to know you were there. I am so looking forward to your Blogger's gathering at the end of the month. It will be fun to finally meet you in person and get to know some of the other local bloggers as well. Take care...
