What I Caught Fishing at the Lake [wood Antique Market]

Actually, it's more like junking, but I made a good haul.

Metal star with wood frame - it hasn't found a home yet so I propped it up against the fireplace.


HAD to have the antique Greek doll complete with foostanella and pompoms on his shoes. I'm not a doll person, but I am a Greek person so I'm allowed. You can also see a cabinet card featuring a very cranky baby, who is the subject of today's tile.


I think I'll call him Thanasi after my Popou. (The doll, not the cranky baby, silly.)


A pocket calendar from 1911, some metal stars and one of several printing blocks. This one says "And a Happy New Year."


Several of the printing blocks, including a half-tone photo that I inked in blue.


Printed matchbook from Texas.


My new-old tin junk with some of my old-old tin junk. You should have seen the one that got away.


Yesterday's tile from the FAO cache of images. Babs on Ice.


Babs is already in this assemblage complete with marabou, glitter, and metallic silver paint. I know, it's too precious, but I need to get my girlie fix somehow.


I think I just figured out what Mark is getting for Father's Day. A Mr. Cranky T-shirt.

Thanks, Kim -- when are you going to come up to Atlanta and go junking with me?

You can bring Maggie with you as doggies are very welcomed at Lakewood. Trumpet can't come, though, he's an impulse buyer and really needs to knock off the ebay purchases, etc.

Lakewood is a once monthly show (I'm a frequent flyer there) on the 3rd full weekend of each month, next month I'll bring my camera and photodocument the trip! Lots of great people and precious junk.

Oh I love the vintage stuff....love the all the old tins.

But Oh I really love that little babs tile! That is too cute and too creative. After all...my whole place is one big girlie fix!
