junkin'.

last week i went junkin'.
just me.
no kids.
no "will you buy me this, PPPLLLLLEEEEEEAAAAAAAASSSSSSEEEEEE?".
just me.

on my adventure {cause you never know what you'll find} i found lots of goodies!
each of these things NEEDS a resting place in my home.
{or maybe not. but, i liked them all!}

Photobucket
This Old Place.
Clarksville, TN
{this is where the junkin' goes down}

Photobucket
i envision tea parties with mckinley.
i didn't buy.
$35 price tag, y'all.

Photobucket
would love a tall cup o'caffiene out of these.
i am an "M", afterall.
i didn't buy them.

Photobucket
this tea kettle.
not sure if i want it more for boiling water or to use as a centerpiece on the dining room table.
and would i leave it silver??
i didn't buy it.

Photobucket
i just thought this was way cute.
it was painted in 1989 by a little boy who's name begins with a D...his name was on the bottom and i don't remember.
maybe he wasn't a little boy.
but, in my mind he is...or was.
i didn't buy it.

Photobucket
i REALLY need one of these!
the soda bottle crate.
not the antlers.
i would totally hang it on my wall with the bottom flat against the wall and put thread in it!
i didn't buy it.

Photobucket
my grandma on my mom's side had one of these cracker tins.
it's one thing that i can still remember about her kitchen. her home.
i wish i had hers.
i may go back and get this one.
$10.
i didn't buy it.

Photobucket
OLD SKOOL!!
did you have a banana seat bicycle??
if you didn't, you must be really young.
or, i'm really getting old.
{be nice!}
i had one.
it was pink.
i think.
my memory isn't what it used to be.
i'm getting old, remember?
i definitely did not buy this.
{my boys would look at me like i was nuts if i brought this home for them to ride!}
{{or, it would make me the coolest mom ever???}}

Photobucket
vintage pyrex.
so beautifully worn around the edges.
has a story.
of someone else's...but, that's ok.
i bought.

Photobucket
crazy old cash register.
i don't think i would have even been able to pick it up if i did want to buy it.
i didn't buy it.

Photobucket
old toys.
hard to believe that back in the day boys had a few of these and that was it.
they'd probably play outside in the dirt, on momma's kitchen table, in the bathtub, with the SAME toys.
our kids are so spoiled.
i didn't buy them.
although, the camper was super fun looking.
{i want an old camper for hubs and i to venture out in when we get oldER.}

Photobucket
this fisher price cash register took me back!
i remember having one of these as a kid and playing with it. ALOT.
like the boys had one clunky metal truck and i had my cash register.
i loved this thing!
if it would have had the coins to go in it i would have bought it.
i'm told there's an updated version in the stores now.
i know what mckinley's getting for christmas!

Photobucket
this cute little mustard piece was sittin' all alone.
no lid.
$4.
i still bought it.
i love the color.
oh, and it's pyrex.
i love all things pyrex.

Photobucket
this, my friends, is my favorite thing i bought all day.
favorite.
my hopes and wishes is to collect lots and lots in this color to fill my grandma's china cabinet with.
i love her and i love pyrex.

Fun! Wish we had a fun antique market around here. Maybe one day we can go "junkin'" together...a Saturday morning ritual perhaps.
