My Favorite Finds of the Year!

As my first year of blogging comes to a close, I thought I'd reflect on the year that is ending too. I took a look through my old photos and realized that I really found some good stuff this year! Hit alot of great sales and stumbled on some real gems in this huge ocean of great junk!!! I think my all-time favorite finds were some vintage crinolines ~ this one being nearest to my heart!
This photo was my header in the early summer and features some wonderful doorstops that I added to my collection. Found these beauties at the Elkhorn Flea Market in mid May. I love the soft, time-worn colors!

I also picked up some awesome ironstone pieces this year too! I've used the big tureen in some fun vignettes and love the sweet little stack of butter pats!

I purchased these cute little guys on a birthday outing with some of my dearest friends. Perhaps thats why they are so dear to me ~ they remind me of a special day with some special people!

This 50's bracelet was so fun ~ sold of course!!

Love the curvy lines of this yummy, creamy lamp! We sell tons of vintage lamps at the Red Rooster! This one went fast!

I enjoyed my walk down memory lane! I hope that 2011 brings me as much luck junking as I had this past year!

May your New Year be full of many good and wonderful things and tons of "junk in your trunk!!"
I am also linking up with Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday too!!
