Junie's Place: Some pretty neat stuff!

Some pretty neat stuff!

Well at least 'I' think some of these things are cool... They are yard sale and thrift store finds!

OK- I know I really didn't need any more junk drug in here but...we did it anyway!

Oh!! But this first thing is not something to walk away from ... especially since I have 3 nephews who grew up in Pa and are BIG Penn State football fans!

The big problem I have is in deciding which of the 3 brothers gets this! ;)

It's a very collectible liquor decanter, '1982~ National Football Collegiate Champions.'

Charles asked me to read this very impressive information here ( the back of the decanter) and see if I could figure what game first caught his attention!

Well- of course I couldn't... but he said it was The game with Alabama; the only game that kept Penn State from having a PERFECT winning season that year! :)

( Charles, of course, is a big Alabama fan!!)


Another thing that I found for myself is this!

I LOVE it!

It's so Old Florida~50s style! I don't know if it's real old- but the style is!

I have been wishing I could find some of those old Pink Flamingos for the yard that used to be so popular in Florida in the 50s; maybe not just Florida...but that's where I know them from! :) If anyone has any info of where I might buy some please let me know! Not fake ones- but the REAL THING!


Well...Here's a happy bit of news! We're finally getting some good rain tonight! Our back yard has been looking more like a desert every day! This rain is wonderful and things will be looking better real soon!

I just hope I don't lose power here, as it's far too early for me to get to sleep- lol- and especially without the AC on!

Oh! But I 'll just hope my lights and cool hold out...:) also my internet!

Good night,

Some terrific finds!! I can't believe that anyone would want to get 'rid of' the whiskey decanter tho! I have some really old ones myself. Of course they're packed away in the attic. Which reminds me,........maybe I'll get out a couple of them that you made me think of with this post. And show n tell them sometime soon.

I love the lamp too.

Great finds.....I love flea markets if its not all that new crap....love when you find little treasures like you did...of course antique flea markets are what I really like....once when hubby was alive we went to a antique flea market and found an old soda fountain...that had Schuster's beverages on it....that's our last name so we had to buy it for $40. It is stoneware with a little spicit (sp?) in front and a place on top for where the rootbeer goes...the man that sold it to us said it was from a rootbeer shop.. ...

hope your doing well..... judy

Hi Anni,

The whiskey decanters are interesting to collect! We have several that we have found at flea markets and some I've bought through Ebay. My favorite is the Old Crow.

:0 Would be fun to see some of yours so I DO hope you'll post some one day soon. I'll be watching!

Hi Judy,

Oh- I love flea markets and yard/garage sales! You never know what you might find and it's such a thrill when you find something you consider 'really good! And it doesn't have to be something valuable- except to you!

That fountain sounds great! I'm sure you treasure it- since you and your husband found it together.

Thanks for visiting- I'm sorry- I have got a little behind with visiting recently- Have had a lot of computer problems etc.

Hope you're having a good day.

I Love that Lamp!!! My Aunt had something similar in her livingroom. And just get the guys together and put their names in a bowl and let someone draw the lucky winner! That way it doesn't look like you're playing favorites...Love your pictures!!!hughugs

Hi Donna,

Well, that would be a good idea except one lives in Pa and I seldom see him- And one of the brothers is not much into collecting... I've pretty much decided to give it to the younger brother. :( but maybe I'll ask my sis about the name drawing and see what she says about that way of doing it!


Have a good day!

We finally got some rain so things are looking better here!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lamp!!! How cool is that? :)

Hey, you know Junie, I didn't know there was such a thing as a "real" pelican. I've just now noticed though that the fake ones are showing up again; in fact, I saw some today at the Dollar General. My brother loves them!!

Sorry, I mean to say FLAMINGO'S!!!!

:) Sally,

Well- what I meant by real was concrete- not plastic!

I just like the OLD STUFF, but probably will never find them...so I'll be looking at what's available these days.
