Before I begin my Saturday Finds post I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for all your messages of encouragement & enthusiasm for my Junk....I can't tell you how it makes me SMILE to have you drop in & say HI....It really has been such a THRILL for me to find a community of like minded people & I'm looking forward to sharing many more junkin' adventures with you....As a matter of fact, Mr SVJ has a digital video camera & I have plans to show you some VERY interesting....STUFF....hahahahaha....!!
Well it was a wet old day here in Melbourne & I spent the majority of it on the road looking for Treasures....Mind you....When I left the house this morning, I was JUST going to 'do' the op-shops in my local shopping strip & head back home to tackle all the washing of junk, fixing of junk & storing away of junk that I'm behind on....However, as my deck outside which is the ONLY place I can carry out MOST of these activities is UNCOVERED, when it started raining cats & dogs I was provided with the PERFECT excuse to continue on with my Thrifting Adventures....hahahahaha....!
