Mission Junk


Spring was in the air yesterday and what better way to celebrate it than to go on Mission Junk.  This was purely a search mission at this point. A friend and I poked around an old abandoned farmhouse shown above. Awesome architectural salvage to be had. Beautiful chippy wood everywhere from old doors, screen doors, trimwork, and corbels. An old rusty farm gate and some metal feeders. A cutie pie rustic table was spied as well. It is so sad to see beautiful old farmhouses and barns just falling apart right before my eyes. If I could just rescue it all!!

The lists are starting to pile up for our Spring Sale. I have managed to design our flyers and postcards already, so those are ready to go! Its such a relief when I have those done. Now I just need to print them and distribute. Ah behind the scenes @ Old Crow, its craziness!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day. jojo

Who wouldn't love to strip that house!! It is a shame to see it falling apart...but hey no need to let great salvage just rot.
Would be so cool if the owners would just let you take all that you wanted!! I wanna come help!

Sometimes don't ya just want to jump for joy to find a house like that out there! I hope the opportunity comes for you to be able to save some of it.

Wait, did you get any of it, or were you just poking around? I'm always sorely tempted to do so, but propriety always gets the better of me.... XOX

OH, how fun! I would so much enjoy going through old places like that! I fear I would forever be worried about some old farmer driving up in a pickup truck with a shotgun. Eeek! ~Mindy
