I decorate for Fall (not a lot this year), but don't put much out that is Halloween related. Grands will not be visiting this weekend, so only put out my little jack o lantern tea light holder. I have had this character for several years and each year I put him out somewhere in the house even if I don't put anything else out for Halloween. Just a Dollar Tree find that makes me smile !
Last Friday my plans for the day got changed so went on an unscheduled "junkin" trip. Went to the thrift shop where I usually have fair luck finding vintage bling/trinkets to work with. Nothing! :( As a matter of fact the last few times I have been, "pickings" were slim and what they did have was over priced for repurposing. Stopped at another place that was really a "junkin" place! Walked in and gas/oil fumes hit me in the face! :( Seems there was a shop in the back where they worked on motorcycles, etc. What we go thru to find a little vintage bling! :-D Stopped at an antique mall that I have not been to in years. Several of the vendors had vintage jewelry, but over priced for what I would be using it for. Also stopped at 2 yard sales.
So - This is my "haul" for a couple hours of "junkin" which is not a lot - 4 brass buttons, 2 rhinestone buttons, some gold colored charms (?), part of a faux pearl clasp, rhinestone chain (bracelet), and my favorite the very worn cameo piece.

If you have not already, be sure and visit these ladies to see what they and the other participants have to share this week.
Took a break from "decluttering" this afternoon and got caught up on some of the necessities of life like paying bills, cleaning house, etc.. We all know how that goes.
Have a great weekend!
