Friday's Junk Club

As Robyn one of our junkies said "We came, We junked, We had a great time". It was a beautiful spring evening, perfect for the junk project I had planned. We refunked some old safety deposit boxes into vibrant summer planters. When the girls first arrived we painted the metal boxes bright greens, blues, yellow, and red. Then dipped our little old white painted fence picket into chalkboard paint for a garden chic plant marker. We had to get right to business as our paint needed to dry for our 2nd phase of the project. While the paint was drying it was time to shop & eat! A couple of my favorite things to do!
 Are you ready? Ok, here was the menu for the evening: Chicken Salad, Classic Deviled Eggs, Fresh Tomato Mozzarella Salad, Cucumber Bites with a fresh herb cream spread, and then the desserts: Fresh Rhubarb Bars & Shortbread cookies. All homemade I was very busy in the kitchen! 
Once we had eaten it was time to fill our planters with flowers and add old skeleton keys to our plant markers. We had a great bunch of junkies come to the farm. There was lots of laughs, smiles, and good times. And yes we're doing it all again on June 19th. The theme Junk IT In Stone.
