A visit with the Retail Therapist...

Yesterday, DD and I headed northward to SC to visit with a friend who is truly a Retail Therapist!!! She just finds the coolest things and is an expert at "junkin". She likes to share some of her finds on her blog at http://cathysoutjunkinagain.blogspot.com/ . I don't know if you have ever known anyone who can find "nothing and make something" or not, but my sweet friend is one of those talented souls. Her home is so gorgeous and welcoming and in every corner there is some magic she has performed on a found object. Seeing her home was just what I needed to spark my desire to change things up a bit around here. She led DD and I on a "junkin' adventure" and we found some really neat things for a song.

I love her porch with the red chairs and b&w fabric on the pillows!
My haul! I spent $15 dollars on all this! Oh, and the photo doesn't include DD's find of Clemson pom-poms and some great strands of long beads she picked up.

It sounds like you had such a fun day together!

You sure did find some great bargains for $15. I have a cabbage bowl with a bunny peering over the side that is very similar to the one you bought only my bunny is white. He's one of my favorite Easter decorations, but there's no reason not to use him year round.

Love your finds, and Miz D. Bliss...I LOVE your front porch!!

Love to you both!,

You told me about your haul but neglected to reveal the bargain price! I'm sure you and DD spent much more on gas than your therapy, but that's no surprise these days. Next time, let's go junkin' together, ok? Judy
