Exciting Times!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. It has been so busy I am looking forward to things slowing down a bit. Looking forward though, here is the 2009 Events Schedule. We might be adding another event, but its in the early planning stages, so keep posted!

Today was an exciting day. Country Home magazine came out to the farm and shot some photos of projects we've created. See if you can spot Old Crow projects in Country Home in the months to come. It amazing how many pictures they take of the same shot just to get the perfect lighting, shadow, and overall picture. It was so much fun to see how it all works.

I hope all of you have a fun & safe New Years!  Happy Junking in 2009, jojo

jolly junk recap

Finally!!! No, I didn't forget, but there is always so much going on. Especially, with Christmas a week and half away! 

 Now here's a little recap of jolly junk. So, the plan was pretty much the same as our past events, we'd setup a tent & in a small part of the barn but, it is December in Iowa, and with only two days until the sale, we found out the ground was too frozen to put up the tent. Ha!!! Needless to say we were not very jolly at that moment; but, my husband came up with a plan. Using salvaged doors, we built  wall to block the wind; and the set up began.   We definitely could not do this without our families. My husbands family watched our girls while my mom helped setup and my step dad put up the christmas lights. Have I mentioned that it was FREEZING! On the eve of Jolly Junk, we were still working in the dark at midnight and still coming up with last minute projects. We managed to get about 3 hours of sleep and then we were "up and at 'em" getting last minute decorating and pricing done. It can be pretty crazy, but its not all work and no play; like me doing a little song and dance to Santa Baby @ 5 a.m. In the end the we turned our barn and the area outside into a junker's winter wonderland. It was so nice to see our Old Crow friends & new faces too! They were all hardcore troopers, it was so windy & cold out!! Our goal for next year is that Jolly Junk will be in the barn and maybe even some form of heat!!! Oh ya, my little cardboard house, I went kinda crazy buying them, but they were little hot cakes, everyone had a little pile of them. I was excited to see that you girls liked them too.  

Hope you enjoy the pictures. Our juNk SHoP is now online. Take care. I'll talk to you soon. Holly Jolly Junking to All! jojo
