Greeting, from the land of junk




The land of junk continues to grow at our houses. Here is junk from the weekend. Lanterns from Walmart on clearance $10.00 each, marked down from $25.00. Silver tray was $5.00. A window with grid screening already in it for $3, a vintage suitcase $5, 2 wood planters $2 for both, 5 finals for $2, rake head for $1, which my son thought I bought him. And the hat stand was a find from Goodwill. I only have plans for the suitcase, a perfect place for my daughter's dress up clothes. She can't get it open without my help, so mean. At least I can then say no dress up clothes without cleaning up the million other toys first.

Check out Rhonda @ Southern Hospitality for others weekend finds.

Great finds! I love those lanterns from Walmart, saw them, but would never pay the $25. You got a great deal.

I have a window frame that I put an antique quilt behind it and hung it on the wall. I love other peoples junk and then see what I can do with it.

I ended up getting 2 of those Wal-mart lanterns too. I saw your posting earlier and didn't rush out to find them but was there and got 2 diff sizes to put on the front or back porch for evening gatherings. I think I've been admiring them for months since they 1st set them out for $25 each.
