Good Day Junkin’!

Louie and I had a wonderful day junkin’. My day started very early, as I woke up at 3:15 am, and never did go back to bed. I did get a LOT of things done though…laundry, mending, sewing, bill paying, emptying the dishwasher, etc, etc. Louie started his day off by putting two new tires on our van. Then we went junkin’!

We found lots of goodies today, but the first real treasure I found  was this!

I know the picture is crappy, but it’s the best I could do. I just can’t get a good focus on it. It looks like Rubies, but the gems are a little bit pinker. There are 16 of them. The box it came in says Crumrine on the inside. I looked it up, and that company is famous for making cowboy belt buckles. In the beginning of their business, they made custom jewelry, but by the early 80’s, they quit making jewelry. I don’t know if this is one of their pieces, but I liked it. The chain pictured is one I already had. It came with a different chain, but I switched to this one.  I paid $16.95 for it.

I found this Isabel Bloom boy catching snowflakes. He has a chip on the end of his nose, so I paid $2.38 for it. I put some white out on his nose, and you can’t tell it’s chipped at all now, unless you look close.

I found a West Bend Crock Pot base for 50 cents at the Salvation Army ‘As Is’ store. I have one just like it, with an extra pot and lid, so now I have another whole complete crock pot! I have already tested it for about 2 hours, and it works fine.

Last, but not least, between Goodwill and super deals at Blockbuster Video, I got 12 movies on dvd for an average of $4.46 each.

We watched Four Christmases tonight, and I remembered how stressed out I got watching it at the movie theatre. Wow….

I can’t wait to see Charlie St. Cloud and Ramona & Beezus, as I have heard good reviews, and I have also heard Dear John is a good movie.

I hope you had a wonderful Saturday too. Be blessed and have a wonderful Sunday!

(I have a crock pot like that w/ a base if you need a 3rd anytime. ;) I don't use it much b/c stuff would burn in it. ? )
