Pilgrimage Junk!

"Junk is not, like alcohol or weed,
a means to increased enjoyment of life.
Junk is not a kick. It is a way of life."
-William Burroughs
Below are a few photos of the many treasures found during the annual pilgrimage! As you know..I am a freak for "smalls" in the junking industry. I love quirky, tiny things that make my heart sing!
Vintage cake decorating doo-dads! FYI: I never make cake.

Fabulous bookend! Some of many 50's-ish jewelry....look now, for it will be something else very soon!

A hodge podge of junk!

Yes, a vintage pepper tin...an ancient plastic babble head...and a rubbery Spanish doll.

Absolutely...there is no rhyme or reason for these three items.

Fabulous butter yellow chair my pilgrimage partner (PP) found!

Yet another terrific purchase from my (PP). Vintage department store electric candles!!!...and they work! Outstanding paper goods....cards, stationery, flash cards, games, labels....

A duck tea set!

Four lovely berry bowls...mega pile of plastic thimbles...vintage corsage pins...children's silverware! Just a little peek into the goodies!

Oh.My.Goodness. I am going to have to move to, or at least visit where you live! I am soooooooooo green with envy at your fabulous finds, especially your outstanding paper bits.
I cant wait to see what you do with all these fabulous treasures you have accumulated.... and all with a broken foot!
Keep posting.... I need my daily fix of envy! :)
