~In The Rough~

Wow, what a weekend! It was super busy. It started out with a sale Friday night, we loaded as the snow fell. Yes, I said that terrible terrible word SNOW. We didn't get home until very late and we were hungry! Luckily, I had a pot roast in the good old crock pot. However, I forgot to turn it down to low and I killed the roast. I never knew how people could ruin a crock pot roast, but ahh now I know. We were so hungry we ate it anyway, but it was pathetic.
The next morning we were up before the sun. Unloaded the truck and off to the next sale.  It was as ways from our farm and we got there with little time to spare. I absolutely hate getting to a sale late!!!! I like to take my sweet time and look over all of the goodies that await me. Goodies there were, lots of smalls. It was a great sale for parts and supplies to make our crow creations . It was a long day, we got home unloaded in the bitter cold with the wind whipping at our faces, I think we got everything in the barn in record time. 

Are you tired yet, Sunday was a crazy day with family, and then one of our awesome customers/friend called and told us about a cupboard(the very 1st picture) that we would love and should check it out. So the junking continued...
All of our finds are little diamonds in the rough that will shine with beauty very soon. I love it all, the hunt, repurposing or cleaning up, and the selling.  I'm coo coo for cool junk. Happy junking and wishing for Spring! jojo

Love what you brought back, wish i could go to that flea market. But a group from Alley katz is going to First monday in canton , TX. We leave Friday and come back Sunday it is an eight hour trip and that is the closest Flea market (Unless you count Santa Fe which is only 4 hours away but not a good one, no good stuff anymore)We will post some of our fun finds when we get back. love your blog. come see us if ever in Texas. patsye

WOW!!! Love all you wonderful finds. That first cabinet is just wonderful as is, I'd have a hard time getting rid of that one!
Sounds like you had a pretty good "junking" week-end. I love week-ends like that.
