Junkin' Finds

I found chippy nirvana.

So many layers of paint...I fell in love.

You know that I can't pass up interesting vintage embroidery.
I haven't taken this apart yet, but it looks to be in very good shape.

These vintage hand embroidered towels (there are 5) 
will look great is someones kitchen.
Not mine, no red for me...but they were too cute to pass up.

They'll be available when The Keeping Room  re-opens.

This twenty pound weight came home with us 
just because we liked it.
It's sitting in the floor waiting for me to break a few toes on it.

Don't forget to enter the giveaway if you haven't done so.
You can find it HERE.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. i really like the stand the embroidery is in! very cool. the weight made me laugh. yup, perfect toe-stubber. and chippy nirvana is indeed that!

  2. Maybe you can train Jack Henry to carry around the weight and place it in your garden. Give that beauty of a stool a giant fern to perch on it.

  3. For the love of God move the weight before you end up limping around this summer.

  4. that weight would make a good door stop.

  5. My favorite is the weight. I hope you didn't have to carry that weight...carry that weight a long time. Sorry, could I resist? Nope. But in all seriousness, the weight is my favorite.

  6. You did find some treasures! Please move that weight ~ makes my toes hurt! :) The red works for me ~


  7. Love the stool. You can sit down on it when you stub your toe.
