Shoots and Junk.....

Bob and I took a little time again today to take a walk around---we finally had rain this week and the leaves floating in the bird bath caught my eye...(the walk seems to have tired him out he is stretched out beside me now typical Bob position all 4 legs in the air.....)



As always there are wonderful shots at Lori's take a little trip over to view them.















On Friday the Mr and me took an afternoon to head over to the Mississippi River and do a little junking.....we found some great junk

Meet our new  table for the loft room we have been redoing....the table will fit great between our the cats new Lazy-Boys.  They took an old furnace grate and put it on an old magazine rack....a little cleaning and a quick spray of krylon and we are ready to go.

I needed a stand for our earring display at Premier Peeps. We were lucky to find this at the Junk Asylum the store is always full of fun reasonable priced treasures. 













I have been busy making bullet earrings to match the necklaces.





We found a neat typewriter

I fell in love with the trike......a great jewelry display piece......the price was right!  It will fit right in with all the tire displays we are using.


We had a great visit with Deb at Colorworks in LeClaire and then headed off to our favorite boat for dinner and a little wagering......I walked out a winner!  A fun day for us now back to the grind.....it's field time for him so long hours ahead and I have a lot of jewelry to create!

  2. Kim, The leaves in the water look neat. I think I would have taken those pictures also. It sounds like you and the Mr. had a great time treasure hunting and playing.

  4. Some nice shots and great junk, especially as you have a purpose for each treasure found. A bit of rain should freshen things up a bit too.

  14. Kim, what a great post - full of my favorites: your photography, jewelry, "junk", and a kitty! :) I love that shot on the tricycle. I have an old one too - maybe from the 40's or 50's. It was just so nostalgic, I couldn't resist it. My 3 year old actually rides on it - just like your cat.
