Brace yourselves...

.....cuz there's gonna be TONS of pictures on this post! I'll try to keep the words to a minimum...so as not to distract you...Tiffany decided to go to Australia for her 15th wedding anniversary, not EVEN taking into account that she would be gone during my BIRTHDAY. So, to make up for it, we went to Portland over the weekend. Shopping was the goal, and, I must say, we are nothing if not dedicated to the achieving of our goals! We shopped. Spent as little as we could on trivial things such as food and shelter. Shopped some more. Laughed ALOT. Shopped. You get the idea...We had such fun! So, without any further ado, here's my loot:


Look at the size of this! Well, I guess you can't really see, but it is an awe-inspiring 10" across!

Some alterables:

Some miscellaneous stuff ( I can't wait to play with those test tubes!):

Stork Bingo, a whole set of French flashcards and vintage German scrap:

A beautiful Bible story book called The Peep of Day. (I know, strange name, right? I guess you were supposed to read it at the peep of dawn.)

Here's one of the GORGEOUS illustrations:

Dolls: ( I know...I'm NOT a doll person, but how could I resist?)

The little ones at the bottom right corner are kind of like game peices or Cracker Jacks toys. They have different styles of dress and they represent different Scandinavian countries and Early America. The large blonde doll head kind of looks like Sandra Bullock, don"t you think?

Look at this sweet couple...kind of a dutch Jack and Jill...

I am soooo pleased to say that I am FINALLY a member of the Creepy Baby Head Society. I have been on the lookout for a suitably creepy-but-not-so-creepy-as-to-give-my-children-nightmares doll head, and I do believe I did it. This little (actually big) one had just the right amount of crackling and wisps of what appeared to be human ( ick?) hair as to be truly creepy. I don't want to offend anyone, so I won't tell you the nickname Tiffany gave him...

A cool metal menu box, some pink (LOVE!) mecury glass beads, and some Christmas stuff:

Old tin, rhinestone jewelry, and a fabulous set of old typewriter keys:

an old baby gift box:

Prayer cards, postcards, medals and charms:

Some paper dolls:

And, finally, because it WAS, er...WILL BE my birthday, Tiffany made me this cute purse and gave me a few goodies, too:

Go check out her hilarious post about the purse here. Too funny! Thanks so much for my goodies and for the weekend...I had such a great time, Tiffany! I can't wait til we do it again!

Thanks for bearing with me, everyone! I'll be listing many of these goodies in the next few days (not ALL of them, though!). So, be sure to check my Etsy shop, and if you see anything you must have, email me (littlejunkshop@yahoo.com) and if it's something I'll be listing, you can have first dibs on it!

Also, since my birthday is coming up, check back because I'm going to be doing a GIVEAWAY of some of this fabulous stuff, and more! You will NOT want to miss this! I'll let you know as soon as I get stuff together...
