Back and Workin Like the Dickens!

Oh my, oh my, how time flies whether I'm having fun, or working like the dickens to get things done.  Bob the Builder and I have had a beautiful jaunt up to Michigan.  Everything about our trip was wonderful, and when we got there, both of us understood why it was so badly needed. 

Now that I'm back, I have been revamping my little junk booth at the antique mall.  I went with the intention of toning my look down a little.  You know, maybe not so much color.   Yes,  I love the faded look I see everywhere.  I more than love it.  At times, I find myself up late at night examining each photo on your blogs, saying oh yes, great look, must do that.  But no, never works for me.  I guess I love me some color.  So here are some pics, no snickering now, just a little techno color coming your way.  Hope you enjoy.
See what I mean about my choices!  Color!  With a little gray to tone it down.
Thank goodness for little white pumpkins!
Halloween jars are a must.  My sister loves bottles, since she is an October baby, she will have her pick of one of these.  Happy Birthday to my sister Sheila!
First Aid sign purchased from Rhubarb Reign.  Love their stuff.  Love the sentiment of the arrow pointing to where I find my aid!
A watch'ma call it, made into a watch'ma call it!,
Hard to leave behind this apothecary jar stand!  (heart sinks looking at the picture)
I love those Bible verse teaching guides hanging on either side of the map.  Their from the 1940's.  ( heart sinks a little more looking at pictures)
I myself can never get enough loving cups! Swoon!!!
Or industrial size buckets!  Double Swoon!!!
Yes my communion table finally made it's way to the booth!
Finally the booth is together.  I have finally posted on my blog.  Now, one more thing to do, visit each of you.  I'll have to back track a little, I feel I missed so much.  But you will see me, I'll be showing up in your comment box.  Till then, Can't thank you enough for stopping by.
