Love of Junk

Last weekend, among other things,
I attended the Love of Junk in Walla Walla.

I went only briefly last year so didn't get the full effect.
This year, I knew about it in advance so planned accordingly.
The hosts and vendors were by far the most
accommodating & friendly of any of the shows, sales, etc.
that I have ever been to.

It was a beautiful day with lots to see.

This was the only picture I took outside for some reason.
There were just as many vendors outside,
some with little vintage trailers.
There was live music & food too:)
I came home with a couple little things, 
but my favorite is this.
 I've used it a couple times already as you can probably tell.
It was evidently made in 1949.
On the front along with a floral motif, it says,
Hilsen Fra Norge.
If anyone can tell me what that means, I'd love to know.
Though it really doesn't matter as I love it's usefulness.

PS sorry for the date info on the top pictures.  I have a 'new to me' camera and didn't realize that it would show up on the pictures.  I got it figured out pretty quickly:)

Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches


  1. Someone else's junk is always a treasure to me too. I have a hard time passing up old glass bottles and jars. The linen dealer looked inviting too! Also, old chest freezer baskets are a wonderful thing to have (saw some in the photos). You can store your shoes in them inside the mud room, winter squash harvests, towels, you name it! Thanks for sharing your day with us and for linking up! :)
