I hope your 48 have been relaxing, filled with Family, Friends & some damn fine JUNK.... :o) !!
A BIG THANK YOU for all your lovely comments offering support & encouragement for the upcoming SVJ-X as featured in yesterdays Herald Sun HOME liftout....I'm CHUFFED you enjoyed it & even MORE CHUFFED you like our home....I really do get a BIG kick out of sharing our space & MY love of junk with you....!
Now before I go on I would just like to apologise in advance if my comments on your blogs declines a little over the next few weeks while I get 'busy' gettin' ready for the Show....Please KNOW that I will be reading & SMILING at your Treasures....!!
Unfortunately, there was no Market for me this morning for a variety or reasons so I have NO new Treasures to share however, I do have some pics of a few more finished pieces for you....Each piece will be for sale at the SVJ-X.... :o) !!
Several months ago I purchased a large number of chippy red vintage theatre letters which I put aside while I waited patiently for Mr SVJ-X to do his THANG....With the deadline to the SVJ-X fast approaching, Mr SVJ got 'busy' this afternoon....Aluminium strips were cut to size & mounted on wood for my words to stand.
Rusty, Love & Jump....
Home & Kiss....
Don't know if you remember this little cabinet....When I rescued it the back was wet & yeckkkkk & it was FILTHY....Replacing the back with a salvaged piece of ply was TOO easy & I still have half a roll of this DIVINE 1940's wallpaper which I think makes the PERFECT back drop....!!
This cabinet is VERY narrow....I thought about putting shelves in but really they would have been SO NARROW as to almost render them useless....Instead, I've used a YUMMY vintage glass knob from my hardware stash in which to suspend jewellery from.... :o)
Oh yes....I had the PERFECT chippy green knob tucked away just WAITING for this project to come along....!
Unfortunately, for reasons unknown to me, the pic showing the entire cabinet in all it's FINISHED glory with several vintage necklaces suspended from the glass knob was BLURRY as sin so all you get is a peek....DOH....!!
Well I must away....I have a SUPER early start tomorrow at the office so will bid you all Sweet Dreams....!!
Cheers for now & HAPPY junking,
