Do I tell you about this place? Or do I leave it as my best kept secret? Do I show you the treasures behind the doors? Or do I gobble them up myself?
Have I ever told you that I LOVE antiques??? I love fine antiques. I love mediocre antiques. I love junk!
And actually, junk fits my budget better! Love the lead glass window panes!
I only allow myself to use egg money to junk or thrift with. I think I need to raise my prices or squeeze more eggs out of those chickens!!!! That floral tablecloth belongs at Miss Eff's!
I just realized that I missed seeing the little lamb. I was taken by the wicker and the watering cans.
This is sooooo my style. Scratched, dented and little fluffy!!!! A touch of faded torn lace. A painted cabinet. Tarnished silver. Yea ............. I love it.
I know its hard to see the lines. But that daybed sitting behind the little stool. That now belongs to Miss Eff. Iron with metal cane panels........ you will find it under a tree with a quilt and a pretty pillow. Perfect place for a summer's afternoon nap. Well .......... once the snow is gone.
Since you are my friends -- I will tell you the details. The Junk Asylum is north of Davenport in Park View, Iowa. Park View is between Davenport and DeWitt on old Highway 61. Its in the old North Scott Foods Grocery store.
Tell Laurie that the flower farmer sent you. And don't buy all the good stuff!!!!
