JUNK'IN

When I was a kid my mom and her friend used to go to yard sales, estate sales and thrift stores...I remember hearing my mom call up Shirley and say, "Do you want to go junk'in?" So off we would go. I learned at a young age to appreciate other people's junk! I found this at my favorite thrift store today for $5.00. SCORE! It is missing a crystal, but that just means it is gently loved, and turn it to the back who will notice?
And although most of it is plastic, some parts are glass...even the crystals, but I know they are just glass. I am loving the crystal, shiny look with all my old wood.
Then I happened onto a huge yard sale and found this painting in a great frame for $2.00....love that!
It has great detail and is mostly wood...although it doesn't matter what it is, I am still painting it...yes, you guessed it...CREAM! I soooo want to paint it Aqua....perhaps I will! What do you think? I will just take that painting out...and hang it on the wall, maybe put a wreath in it!
