Somebody Stop Me!!!

Okay, I know I'm not alone in this because there are way too many people out there de-stashing all the time. I can't count the number of times I've said to myself... 'You have to stop buying stuff for the studio.... you have enough!'

Weeellll.....there was this yard sale that was a combination 'cleaning out the attic/garage/basement estate sale.' Could you have resisted? And as it turns out it was someone I knew who was so very generous with me.. and my addiction.

I guess I'm a hopeless junkaholic.... there's no hope for me. I can't resist old hardware etc. etc. etc.....  I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I've spent the past 2 days washing everything because I refuse to put it away all dusty/greasy/nasty.

It was all worth it.... I feel like King Tut!

Best... Canace

p.s. I have tried to respond to comments and it won't let me do it so please don't think I'm ignoring what you have to say. I appreciate every one of your comments.
Apparently it's a known problem with blogspots and they're working on it.

And now the goodies..... can't wait to put together some new assemblages with these.

Ohhhh Darling keep taking not a skerrick of notice of yourself, don't change ;) Reading your post is like listening to myself ... I too can't help myself despite moments of restraint I do it over and over, again and again all the white Loving every second of the hunt, the buying, the wondering ... You're fabulous ;)
