Random Picture Time

Every once in a while I flip through the random pictures I've taken with my iPhone. Well boys and girls... It's random picture time! I've held this one in reserve for a while...not because it's all that super special good....just never got a round tuit (got a round to it).....Did you know that if you venture into the scarry, man section of Wal-Mart (you know around the fishing lures and motor oil and such) you will find neat things like this:

Leopard print Duck Tape! This takes cuteness to a whole new level!If I ever have a quick fix it project, I will be buying a roll of this stuff! They have other colors and prints too, but if you know me, you know I LOVE an animal print!

To all my loyal readers, never fear, Ms. Jackie's Junque is always current and timely when reporting and linking current events to the potential treasures that could be awaiting you out there in junk land. So with all the True Grit hoopla going on right now, is there a better time to introduce this beauty to you, my loyal readers?

This was found at America's Thrift Store. The Duke. John Wayne. I couldn't tell if it was a pencil or charcoal drawing. A fitting, multi pose, multi sketch tribute to The Duke. I'm sorry. I hope you're not taking me serious. The sad thing is that when I was in the thrift the next week...you guessed it... The Duke was gone. I'm sure proudly displayed over some mantel. Bahahahahahaha.

And finally, I saved the best for last. This is a very young Ms. Jackie's Junque. Thank you Mama for the Cindy Brady side ringlets. Josh and Jacob found this picture at my parents' house. They called me howling with laughter. I think they were dumbstruck that #1 I could be that little, and #2 that I could be that cute! Hahahaha. HOWEVER, I have a touch of the peeping T*m look going on. 'Preciate all the groovy 1970's blue background above my head Mr. photographer. Could he not center me in the picture? Bahaha!

I'm digging this picture so much I think I'm going to add it to the side bar. So when you visit I'll be peeping over at you. Me and my background.

Happy Birthday Dolly

As Jacob reminded me earlier . . . today is Dolly Parton's 65th birthday. Coincidentally -- I found this on the record rack at America's Thrift today. Dolly is beautiful in her pink pantsuit. I didn't buy it.

I did some more tweaking at the old booth.

This cute guy anchors the "cowboy" corner. I hope he sells soon!

This is another picture of the aqua shelf. I LOVE the aqua and pink combination. Pure cottage goodness! Yes, that is a Dolly biography on the second shelf down in the far left hand corner--and a Dolly CD in the right hand corner.

This is a gorgeous vintage Vanity Fair gown and robe set The gown is tiny and will not fit on the dress form so I have it just hanging on the front. It must be eye catching because the Queens have called me twice with inquiries from customers wanting to know if the dress form is for sale. Not a chance!

Valentine Booth

On New Year's Eve I went to the booth to take out the remaining Christmas items and restock with items with a romantic, Valentine theme. Some of the pictures are a little dark because my lamps, which are on timers, had begun to go off for the night. This is probably my favorite vignette. I heart aqua and pink.

This is a cute vanity stool I picked up several weeks ago. I was going to recover it but the fabric is in excellent condition so I decided to sell it as it is. The dress on the left is an antique handmade dress with a beautiful collar detail.

Since my antique rocking horse didn't sell at Christmas--I'd hoped it would have--I decided to throw some western themed items together for this corner.

Look at the cute arrangement in the boot vase!

I loaded up the yellow shelf with more blue and white items. I love the contrast of the blue and white on the yellow shelf.
