Garage salen # 9 jaCk's room

Not much to share this week in terms of Garage sales for me.  We are leaving for vacation come Monday, and I am busy packing, ironing and list making!  I have been wanting to share Jack's room with you all for some time now.  Jack's room is filled with treasures both old and new. He has some special antiques that he has picked out himself when going to the shops with us. Hope you enjoy them.
I have some features to share with you as always. First up my friend DIANN. I have watched her garden over the last couple of weeks go from lovely to MEGA COOL and colorful! Of course I would like to believe I have had some influence on this....perhaps I have, I think she told me I did:) But don't you just love these colorful planters...I think she got them for a buck crazy!
Next on the list friend Michelle, again I would like to take credit for her new fun color choice....I do believe she told me that too:) I swear I am not bluffing or bragging..well yes I am, but who cares!..I just can't help but spread the color love! really have to check out her tutorial on this piece.  
Last but not least this week is
my friend Debbie-Dabble...and yes I am going to take credit once again for her color inspiration on her fun garden finds. Well you see all these colors are great FUN in and around your home...makes old things look fun and fresh.  Go check out these awesome blogs, you will be glad you did. 
Now onto the weekly Garage salen party #9

  The radio here was my Grandfathers, and I have such fond memories of Gramp playing his radio.  It still works too.

This we found at our favorite antique shop.  In fact Jack spotted it.  It was only $6.00 and is all hand made with copper....can you imagine the time alone that went into this?

Boat is from an antique shop, and the little ceramic wiener dog was also my Grandfathers.  Jack was named after my Gramps....I am sure my Grandfather planted the seed for he was conceived a month after my Grandfather passed away.

Jack is big into Martial arts, at the age of 8 he obtained his black belt after four years of hard work

These where in the middle of his floor as usual, I very carefully moved them aside for my photo op
This day was dreary when I took the photos...although not the best of get the gist of Jack's old man room.....with all his OLD antiques.
Link going up a bit early, I want to be sure to have enough time to visit everyone before I leave:) Happy thrifting! Linking up to a few lovely hosts! Thanks so much!  FOR BLUE MONDAY
DETAILS on my B & A party still going on HERE

Love Jack's room! I think it is fantastic that he picked out so much of what is in there and made it his. That is pretty impressive to have a black belt at his age! I love that quilt with the blues and oranges. Tell Jack he has one rocking room! Have a safe trip and enjoy your family and friends!

Jack's room is so nice. Love his bedding and his horse lamp is almost like mine. That is a lot of belts he has earned. I love them displayed like that. I will post my finds tomorrow. I have a new laptop and router, but my desk top is not working. No server found is all it keeps saying. May have to call ATT. Laptop works great so I will do a post from it. I have to take pics and load them and figure all this out.

I adore Jack's room. It's so awesome that you got him into thrifting and antiquing at an early age. I go to thrift stores all the time with my younger son who is actually a manager mentor for the physically and mentally challenged at GoodWill. We love a bargain!

Great pictures! I just won my first (maybe only) BLOG AWARD. I am to share it with 15 people and I chose you as I really enjoy your blog. Please don't feel you have to participate, however, because as I understand it some bloggers don't like to deal with awards. I felt I needed to try it at least once since someone was kind enough to visit my blog and share with me. See my blog to better understand.

I love your son's room and that picture made with the copper threads - looked like actual thread. Everything looked wonderful and so adult with little boy touches in his room - even down to your grandfather's radio.

Hi Debbie, Love Jack's room, it's perfect for a boy and I think it is so nice to have him involved in choosing things that are going to be in his room. It will teach him so many lessons on the value of collecting things that mean something to him and that speak to him, it's not about the dollar value but the senitmental value of things he has collected himself. So smart of you and his dad, I really believe that kids should have a big say in their rooms. Great picks; Jack, you have awesome taste! I hope you have a great vacation!

I LOVE the copper boat art. I found one just like it, but with string missing. It would have taken too much fixing and cleaning to be worth the price they had it at, but your pictures have me holding up home that I'll find another one just like it one day.

Seriously any 1 discover exactly where i will be able to uncover some beneficial info regarding just how to get free of cellulite? I found the following site, They state to have some good information, i was still certainly not confident about just what to do,

Cellulite on my thighs appear really dreadful, i used some gel for about a few months however no good effects, In case any one know any site or a product or service greater as compared to this 1 in that internet site please let everyone know,

If not i could have to find out regarding there system,

Oh! So fun to look at! Love that all the things that are special to him are there for him to see daily. Our son also has a black belt and did wrestling in high school...and both my hubby and him love to watch our son loves to ask if I would watch him when he does UFC one, thank you! Why couldn't he gotten into less contact-type swimming, maybe? (He did soccer, lacrosse and some rugby too!)
