My junky day out!

I have been talking to Mary Schweitzer about doing a doppelganger of her “Noteworthy” piece. I just loved it and wanted one for my office desk. So I headed into town to once again try and find an open doll head and some little junk for other assemblage pieces … I still don’t know my way around Boise too well so after trudging through several antiques shops and only finding niceties, I was about to give up. Then as I was headed down a street that had a bunch construction going on, I saw a sidewalk sign that said “Dusty Trunk” …Wow that sounded like what I was looking for. Sure enough it was a shop just packed full of vintage and antique junk! I found the perfect doll head, and take note of the canning jar holder next to the head in the picture … doll body???? hmmmmm :)) I also found lots of stuff for other projects too! There were tiny bottles and plastic gumball toys, keys, keys and more keys! an old box lock and wow too much to list! I am in junk heaven now so expect some pieces posted soon!

OMG, I want to go shopping at that shop with you....what awesome treasures. I love looking at all the things you found..down to a cupie doll! These you don't see much anymore, they are such collector's items. I love the little it glass? And the patina metal cap with the figure on it..looks like one of those ornamental caps they put over chimney wall holes in the old days when they took the heat pipes out for the summer. Awesome...Thanks for sharing...I can just imagine all the beautiful pieces you can create with all of these pieces!
