JUNK DAY!!!

 Today I did some Junk shopping.  I went to J and J Junk Store again.. You take your life in your hands when you go in there.. But I was on a mission to find an old 3 tier round metal basket set.. Like this one. No Luck !! 
Mom and I found one at Chelsea Antique Mall Monday, $59.00 price tag on it.. I passed. I drove to Hobby Lobby and guess want? Yep... I found one!! It was brown and 50% Off. I got it for $15.00. I got it home and looked up my can of Ballet Slipper Pink spray paint.. Now Guess What?  Yep... I ran out of paint before I got it finished! Ran to Wally World.. Guess What? No Ballet Slipper Pink. Urghhh!!!  Don't you hate when that happens! It is sitting on my front porch half painted!!

I did found this little box of Seam Binding. I added 2 thingies of Candle Wicking thread and that orange silk ribbon to the box. The lady said I could have the whole lot for $2.00. Couldn't get my money out fast enough!!  lol  I purchased other stuff too.
This cross stitch chart by The City Stitcher. Nabby's Garden Sampler. It cost my a whole .25 cents. The picture is not good. It is in colors of Rust & Grays.  I like it. I also purchased these two.
JCS magazine - April 1990 and Western Reserve Tradition by Bea and Chris.- Cute sampler on undyed linen. I bought the JCS magazine because I had stitched a project in it. This one:

I started stitching for them in 1988. The first thing I ever stitched for them was a sampler for their book, The Sampler Collection Vol.1 I wish I had that book.... I donated it to the Library years ago.
Here is my little name in Print...

I have been in the ol' sewing/craft room tonight.. I was going to take everything out of the closet and paint it this weekend. Well... We are in for a 100% chance of rain Saturday.. Oh, well... I can organize it. I am going through my old Linen.. I bought new 40 count in various spring colors from silkweavers. I will be putting my old colors in different counts on my sale page sometime this weekend. So, if interested check back Saturday or Sunday.
Till Later... Have a great night...

I'm sure you could buy a different shade of pink and paint over what you have already painted.

That is so neat to see your name/ and finished stitching in print. And i'm happy you found the basket you were looking for, wishing you luck finding more ballet slipper pink paint.

Great finds! I love that Garden Sampler and I can't get over the price! I have that magazine in my collection so I'll have to check it out for your stitching.

Ooooh, that is quite the haul you have there. Plus you got such great deals. Have fun with all of your goodies and playing in your craft room!

How's that craft room coming along? I know all about the spray paint thing - I had to switch colors the last time I was painting (with pink!) because I ran out too!
Cool magazine find. I used to stitch samples for The Needlecraft Shop - I still have copies of those magazines.
