Incase your hungry for some cool junk I wanted  to tease you with one of our Crow Creations that we have been working on for the sale. This is our Salvage Angel we have made from rescued junk(seriously). Yes, your funky junky elves have been working on lots of fun projects like this to put under your tree. We would love to hear comments from you, so if you have some jibber jabber of your own do share. Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! jojo

Weekend Update

Hi all! Wow was it a crazy weekend! Friday nite we had planned to go to an auction up in Winterset. We were excited, we live for junk adventures. So, it was just getting dark, the sun was setting, it was a nice fall evening and then....there was no time to react....there was a buck right in front of us....and BAM!!!  It was like someone had just dropped it right in front of us. We hit the deer. Needless to say we never made it to the auction and like we told our 2 year old the truck needs to go to the doctor!

Saturday morning I woke up early, yes still thinking (THAT SUCKS about the truck!), but I managed to put it behind me & head back out for another try at getting to an auction. I was cruising down the highway, snow was falling, and I was singing to my Christmas Songs. I made it to the auction yippy!! It was at an old hardware store in a little town called Russell. The building was awesome it had old chippy painted tin ceilings & beautiful built ins. I found some goodies! Old tin, great tables, old drawers, some advertising pieces, it was definitely worth being out in the freezing cold all day!

Ok, one more thing about this weekend, and then I need get my email flyers sent. I was flipping through Country Home magazine and there was a whole article on my Too Cute Cardboard Houses. I couldn't believe it!! Take care & Happy Junking!!

First things first, I woke up to the first dusting of snow for the season. I have mixed emotions about this. On the one hand it puts me in the holiday mood and on the other hand it means old man winter is knocking on the door! However, I must admit that I have already started listening to my Christmas music. 

Jolly Junk is right around the corner & I have been on the hunt for vintage christmas items. I have just stumbled across the cutest holiday cardboard houses. I think I'm in love, they are so vintage & just so sweet. You will have to keep your eye out for them on Dec. 6th. I will try to get a picture of them uploaded soon. Until next time Happy Junking!
