Another Sunday Junking ..

Hello my dear friends,

I just finished sharing my posts of my outing with my daughters a week ago Sunday and my newest creations and now I already have more to share from our outing on Sunday five days ago.

I shouldn't have gone ... really. I should have stayed home but I didn't and I had such a lovely time with my daughters again and again I shopped and I am so delighted with the treasures I found. One is for me to keep and the others are for me to work with.

These days I try and be very sensible when it comes to shopping for treasure that I can use in my creations. I try to only look for what I need mostly but today I had fun finding bits and pieces even though I am not sure what for just yet.

Here is what I found ...

... lots of neat little bits and pieces that I am hoping to turn into neat new creations sometime soon.

I think this could be my favourite finding of the day ...
... old metal drawer pulls .. well, at least that is what I think they are.
I am hoping they will become feet for two of my Christmas music boxes.
This was my 'free~bee' for the day ... acorn caps.
I have always wanted to make velvet acorns, maybe now is the time to finally try.
And this is my gift to myself ...
... it is a scrapbook from 1953 in honour of HRH Queen Elizabeth's crowning.
Inside I found a paper napkin in memory of the coronation,...
... a special edition new paper and ...

... a beautiful picture of the HRH the Queen as well.
All a bit tatty and torn but yet so beautiful.
Three dollars for this lovely piece of history was well worth it ... don't you think?!
I just love junking so much and I am already excited for the next time I will be heading out again which will be as far as I know right now, on October the 4th for a church rummage sale.
 I wonder what I might find there? ..
It is so nice that you stopped by to visit me today here at Todolwen. I love it when you do.
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.


  1. I enjoy reading very old articles about the Royal family, especially the Queen. How appropriate, her coronation was on my birthday......June 2nd and, yes, I do remember the affair, I was 8 years old and quite impressionable. By the way, I also remember singing "God save the King" in class every school day. Somehow "God save the Queen" sounded so foreign. Took a year or so before it sounded quite normal. Thanks for the reminder.
    Cheers, Linda.

  2. I love those little train cars....can't wait to see what you create with them!

  3. I would so like everything you bought! I love reading about the Royal family myself. Thanks for sharing. Di@Cottage-Wishes

  4. Ahhhh.... so many lovely things again, and I am curious about what you will turn them into.

    Hugs Ines♥

  5. Ooh so lovely...all of it. Makes me want to head out and go junkin'.
