Happy Holidays From Old Crow!

I must be on Santa's naughty list, as it has been well over a month since my last post.
It was not my intention to leave you hanging about the nickname. So here it is......Drum roll.........Vintage Vixen will be my name. Sassy I think!

At the beginning of December we had our 2nd annual Jolly Junk event. It was magical! We had the wood burning stove with a roaring fire. The building was fully of jolly holiday shoppers. We had a wonderful day and wanted to share share it with you. Hope you enjoy!

As the winter season begins, so does my blogging. You'll probably be sick of me!
Your Vintage Vixen and Junk Hunk wish you the jolliest Holiday Season. xoxo

HELP!!

(Junk Hunk)

Ok, everybody get your thinking caps on! JoJo needs a nickname, of course junk style ASAP. Think of this as a contest. There is a little gift certificate involved for the person who comes up with the name chosen. Kasey is the Junk Hunk, but what about me?? This is very important and hopefully we will be able to share with all of you soon why it is that I need one. Thanks you guys!! Jolly Junking, jojo

The Pretty Little Houses


Right around this time last year I fell in love with these little vintage holiday houses. Seriously, I think they are so sweet. Produced in Germany, Japan, and Italy too. Made of cardboard they stole my heart! The junk hunk wasn't as excited as I, but ya know. Many of you spotted them at our Jolly Junk sale last year and started your own mini villages. I have been crazily buying more of these little paper houses because I just can't get enough. Be sure to keep your eye open for these paper perfections at Jolly Junk!

I can't wait for Saturday aka Junk Day. I have my eye on a sweet sale...shhh! But, before that day comes I will be nurse to my junk hunk as he is getting all 4 of his wisdom teeth taken out tomorrow. Poor thing! I'm hoping to get more Etsy work done tomorrow while he's taking it easy. Thats what's happening at your Old Crow. Jolly Junking and Stay Healthy!! jojo

Oh Christmas Tree


Jolly, merry, and bright we are in full Christmas mode getting ready for Jolly Junk. I know Halloween hasn't even made its appearance yet, but the funky junky elves are hard at work! We created this whimsical winter tree on Saturday afternoon. The idea just popped in my head and within the hour our whimsy winter tree was born! I love those "ah ha" moments! Of course I couldn't wait to share:)


I must confess that I have broken the cardinal rule of blogging. I forgot to take pictures of my junk collection from Saturday. Shame on me! Sometimes I am so bad about that. It was quality over quantity. There was a yummy pie safe that had to come home with me, a white shabby metal table, some ephemera, old brass jingle bells, two cute tarnished ringy dingy service bells, and some other odds and ends.

Until next time, have a Happy Halloween and Jolly junking!! jojo

Need a Junk Fix


I am in need of a major junk fix!! I've been doing a little junking here and there, but I am craving a good farm auction!! It has been a little while and now that are sale is over watch out jojo is ready to JUNK!! I have found a sale for Saturday and I am super excited. Hopefully I will come home with a big load!! Keep your fingers crossed for some good pictures.

On another note, last night we attend JB Knackers Entrepreneur Night as part of the panel. It was an awesome evening of shopping, eating, and connecting with others. I am hoping another evening will be in the works, as I think there is so much information to share and one great evening left us wanting more.

Things at the farm are crazy as always. We are gearing up for our 2nd Annual Jolly Junk event on Dec. 5th. Gather your family and friends and please join us in starting a new holiday junking tradition!
Take care, stay healthy, and Jolly Junking!! jojo

Harvest Market 09'

We are so blessed to have the best customers ever!! When I woke up Saturday morning I could see snowflakes falling from the glow of the porch light. I didn't think much of it at the time, but when I headed outside to get last minute sale stuff done I realized that it was sticking to the ground and everything had a fluffy coat of fresh snow on it. At which point I was hoping, really hoping, that the element of snow would just make our market that much more fun and memorable and it was!!

Kasey and I greeted all of our hardcore junkers at 9:00 and the crazy crow madness began. After all of our hard work it is so much fun and so rewarding to see all of you having fun and finding that little something that you can't live without.

Many of you asked if we would be having our Jolly Junk Market this December and the answer is YES!! Your funky junky elves are reporting in and can hardly wait to create some fun holiday junk!

Again thank you to all of our awesome customers and to our family and closest friends that helped us with our Harvest Market. Happy Junking jojo

Old Crow & DIY Magazine!




We are sooo excited! DIY Magazine asked yours truly to create a project for their Shopgirl article. So, Kasey and I got to be in a photo shoot with our project and we made it to the Winter Issue. Scheduled to be on newsstands any day. Here is a sneak peak at the cover and our article. We created an ice bucket stand using a galvanized bucket, pipe, and old bicycle gears. Oh how we love our industrial look. Enjoy and Happy Junking! jojo

The Pumpkins...


The pumpkins were hung by the porch with care! One of the many things we do around Old Crow to get ready for our Harvest Junk Market is setting the atmosphere. We are busy collecting the perfect pumpkins to fill our hanging buckets that line our front porch. Junkie our scarecrow is getting kind of lonely so we need to find him the perfect pumpkin friends. We always line our old vintage feeders full of straw and pumpkins too. I am so happy to say that we have collected many of those feeders this summer, so you can have your pick of many!! We will be headed to the fields soon to gather our corn shocks and to the timber to find those funky cool green hedge apples. I love those thingys. When you arrive on market day, October 10th & 11th(just incase you forgot), our rescued treasures will be overflowing with harvested goodies. Some warm apple cider too, that sounds good! I can't wait. We missed all of you this summer and our excited to say hello. Have a great Fall day and Happy junking!! jojo

BOO!!


Does time ever sneak up on you and say BOO!!! At 9:08 this morning it happened to me! I knew our sale is three weeks away, but then I looked at the calendar and it scared me!! We have been working for weeks and still have a lot to do, but thats normal! What's not normal is for me to completely have lost track of time to get our flyers,mailers, and newspaper advertising out and ready!! So, you all know now what I will be doing for the next few days. If you want to help spread the word " Old Crow Sale Oct 10th & 11th" I'd love ya :) I better get going. Have a great day & Happy junking!! jojo

Tag Your It!


Before every sale one big task is making our Old Crow tags. We hand make each and every one. Just regular white tags when they start, but after dirtying them up a bit the look like these little pretties. You are looking at 400 tags and more are in the making. This isn't the finished product though. We still have to put the Old Crow stamp on all of them. It is quite a process, but we love how they look and adds a finishing touch to our rescued junk!


Only 3 weeks left until our Fall Market and we have lots to do, so we are headed to the barn to work work work! Happy Junking! jojo

Old Crow's Newest Family Member


Upon Ella's(our 3yr old) request we made a scarecrow. If she were any older she would know that mom and dad can't make anything that doesn't involve junk! So, I introduce to you our newest member of the family Junkie the scarecrow. I think he's pretty cute! Hope he brings you a little Fall inspiration, as the leaves are starting to fall here at the Crow. Happy junking!! jojo

September Junk Club Recap


Hello!! I'm baaack :) Yes, I took the summer off, blogging that is. I thought the best way to kick
off the new blog season would be to jibber jabber about our junk club last Friday. We made this junky FALL display. This was more of a technical club nite as our junkies had to sand their own boards, and clear coat there springs and wire. Then we made our cool grungy FALL tags too. Of course in between all of this work we had some good food and laughs. As always thanks girls for a great time! However, the night did not end there! Shortly after everyone left we got the phone call. A couple of our junkies had blown a tire close to our farm, so into the night Kasey and I went to the rescue. When we arrived, our entire junk club minus 1, were on the side of the road for moral support, it was hilarious!! The Junk Hunk changed the tire and everyone was off. It will be a long time before any of us forget this club nite. Here's some pictures from the nite and we also have video of the roadside rescue that I will try to upload too! So happy to be back:) xoxo jojo

A Crow's View




This morning I am enjoying the view. One of the reasons I had to have our house was because of this view. I am sitting at our little picnic table listening to the birds singing, the buzz of a bumble bee, and a gentle breeze keeps me cool. 

Thanks to wireless internet this is my outdoor studio today! If it doesn't storm that is.  Perfect the girls can play, I can work, and we're all happy!
Cleaning, creating, and photography is on the agenda today! Take a moment to enjoy your view.  Happy junking!! jojo

Naughty Chair?



Good morning! Ok, so when my 3 yr old does something bad I send her to the naughty chair. So I am officially sending myself there as well! For some reason this summer I have been terrible about blogging! I hate that I haven't been and my good old catholic italian guilt has set in. I'm sure you all are like what the heck has happened to jojo? I'm just busy like all the rest of you girls, buy I just haven't been blogging about! Sham on me:(

Ok, so what have we been up to? Junking all the time! Our next sale in a month away, I can't believe it. We have accumulated junk, but we need more!!! Eat, Sleep, Breath Junk. Thats whats up! Some of my favorite finds so far : another railroad cart, some old wood cuppalas, feeders, a sweet teal and white table, of course metal metal & metal, and chippy wood stuff.  

         

We took a trip back to junk heaven and add some goodies to our piles below. OMG how could I forget to tell about what happen while in junk heaven. We knew that there was a barn that we had yet to search and rescue. So, we took the long walk through the horse weeds and Nettles, which by this time of the summer are seriously taller than me. Finally, we arrive at this barn. For the most part its empty, but we found a neat little metal handmade stool, some chippy wood drawers, and ......some treasures up top that we had to leave for another day b/c.......as I was on my rescue mission Kasey all of a sudden says STOP. I turned around and he said SHHHHH. You could hear this  low and long hissing/growling. We tried  to scare it away for a quite a while, but it didn't move and we couldn't  see what it was, so we will have to go back for what' up above.

More junking to come. I'm off to sit on the naughty chair. Happy junking jojo!

**If anyone is keeping count we just hit deer #2 last nite and our truck is less than a year old**
BUMMER(amongst a few other words)

June 08, 2009

What is it?


Drum roll.......This little do da is used for clam fishing. It is a part of a clam trap!I would never have guessed it myself. I think the old man I bought them from wasa little upset that I wasn't going to use them for their actual purpose, but  last timeI knew we didn't have a whole lotta clams in Iowa!

More to come on our big junkin weekend. Right now I'm off to receive one of my birthday presents. I'm getting a massage! After this weekend I need one! Junk details to be continued. Happy Junking! jojo

Funky Junky Repurpose Friday

     

Happy Friday!! I found these thingy things at the swap meet yesterday. Any idea what they are? Any guesses? Oh I think this will be fun. I think I'll wait to tell you and see if anybody can guess what they were made for:) 

When I saw them I instantly thought this was a great, very easy repurpose for todays Funky Junky Friday.Ok, so this is what immediately came to mind when I picked up these cool pieces.

 
A very simple, but cool Photo or Recipe Card Holder!
You know how I love metal. It called out my name:) If you like it, I'm sure
I will be putting in our Etsy shop very very soon:) Have a great day! jojo

Schools Out...Junk On


Schools out forever! Yesterday afternoon we rushed over to a high school that we heard was being torn down asap. We didn't know what to expect. Most of the goodies had been taken, but we managed to come away with a truck load. Our favorite metal stuff is what sits in the back of the truck. Some old metal blue carts 2 tall and one short, a couple of science lab stools, cool galvanized rack with rusty hooks, a classic school clock, and few others. If we had been really prepared we would have brought our power tools. I so wanted to take the metal letters that spelled "High School" off the building, but they were bolted into the cement. I even tried giving that puppy dog look to the junk hunk, but he said there was no way we could get it. Sadly they we will be gone. Don't ya just hate that!!! Especially letters, one of my many weaknesses. Hope everyone has an awesome day. Happy Junking!!

Hmmmm


Hmmm yes, I have been very silent lately. Trying to get back on track. We haven't been doing a ton of junking the past few weeks since our sale. Sometimes you have to stop and take care of home life. It's been nice. We have our veggie garden pretty much done, well as done as its gonna get. This year we wanted to make raised beds and you know every project always takes longer than expected. Our little Ella is such the farmer. She loves to play in the dirt, yet just this morning she wanted here little toes painted. A girlie girl and farm girl at heart. So, yes we've been selfish and taking a little time for stuff around the farm. I purchased this sweet shelving unit @ JB knacker(most awesome shop ever!), but the frame was brown. So we painted it with this splash of sunshine and I absolutely love it. It sits in our living room. Thanks Brenda!!
Like I said no hard core junking has taken place. Which means we haven't looked to hard for anything, but we did get a load in Winterset the other day. An old gate, shutters, a sweet little primitive bench, a wooden cuppala, some chippy lattice, feeders, little vintage bottles, and some mid century racks. After that little trip, a very friendly little birdie showed us the way to another little place where we found: old traffic signs, a few cool milk crates, old street signs, and some rusty little baskets. So, 2 pick up loads not too bad! This weekend is the kick off to hard core junking! I think the junk hunk & I may have to go two different directions to take advantage of all the junk happenings. I will post a few later to day or tomorrow.

Nothing like the longest post ever! Thats what I get for not posting in a week. Our little junk shop on Etsy has been keeping us super busy too. We just celebrated our 100th sale! When we started we didn't know what to expect and now I'm seriously addicted!

I know a few of you who check here often and I'm sure you've totally been wondering what's up, but I am back in full force. More to come...Thank you so much to all of you who read my little rambling. I love to do it and love to read about your lives too! Happy junking jojo

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. 

Club Fee $35 
To reserve your spot email me at rescuedjunk@me.com

The rest of our holiday weekend has been relaxing. We are working on our garden and have a fun family party planned for today. I'm already going through junking withdraws and am sooo ready to get back to it this week!!! Thanks again to our awesome junk club junkies I had such a good time with all of you! jojo

Making A Difference Day



I had no idea that today in the Des Moines area was Making A Difference Day.  My girls and I were paying for groceries today and my total was $50 less than it was supposed to be!! The manager explained to me that a woman had purchased 4 $50 gift certificates and she wanted to help pay for 4 peoples groceries today. Specifically, mothers with children. I was so deeply touched. I seriously had tears in my eyes when the manager told me. It was such a simple act of kindness pure and sweet. After we loaded groceries in our truck  it was lunch time, so we headed to McDonalds, as we always do when we are out running errands. It was my turn to make a difference. I purchased a gift card at the golden arches and told them to pay for as peoples lunches as it could. It felt so incredibly awesome! There is nothing more meaningful than the gift of kindness. I hope this inspires you and puts a huge smile on your face. Pay it forward!! xoxo jojo

Finally Flea Market Finds


Finally! What you've been waiting for...
My mom & I got to What Cheer at 7 ish on Friday morning. Brrr it was cold, wet, and windy, but we managed :) I had to go see my junk guy first and I had no problem making a pile. I think I made some good choices as people were trying to shop out of my pile of junk. I got some cool metal feeders, great table top, 3 big windows that will make a great room divider, and a metal cupboard. After we left the junk guy we made our way through the wonderland of junk. I was on the hunt for metal totes and totes I did find. My most exciting piece is a sweet old railroad cart which should transform into a rockin coffee table! Lots of fun we had & loads of junk we found! Thanks for an awesome day mama! Happy junking to all! jojo

Fresh Flowers


Thank you girls so much for all of your sweet birthday wishes!
I love flowers and my junk hunk and Ella Rose surprised me with this simple arrangement(minus few tulips the cat ate!)
Its back to business today. Lot to do I need to stain and stamp our price tags. The house will smell yummy with the aroma of coffee,vanilla, & cinnamon when I am done. Then I need to print & cut more sale flyers. Many little to-do's.
Exciting news just in time for Mother's Day the OC has gift certificates! If you are interested just send me an email rescuedjunk@me.com. Redeemable at both our Etsy shop & occasional sales. 
So I will work hard today & play hard tomorrow.  My mom & I have a girls day planned(no babies) just me and her. I can't wait!!! It seriously has probably been since before Ella was born that we have done something just the 2 of us and thats been 3yrs. What do we have planned you ask? Of course Junking!! We are headed to the Whatcheer flea market. It never disappoints, even if it is wet & muddy. I will take lots of pics, if I remember my camera that is. I'm terrible at forgetting it! Anyways, have a beautiful day, happy junking! jojo

On The Eve of My Big 3 0

I know this has nothing to do with junk, but this is one of the big things happening in my little world. Tomorrow, I turn the big 30 and I'm dreading it, but am embracing a fresh start too! Many have said it's just a number and really I know it is, but its kinda sad to say good by to my young and crazy 20's. Looking a head it's so nice to know I am happy & settled. I have a wonderful husband, 2 fun & spunky little girls, and I get to do what I love Junk. What a way to start the next chapter!  I would love to hear any words of wisdom or just some funny talk to celebrate my BIG 30. Thank you to all my devoted readers. I love reading about your lives and hearing about all your junk! xoxo jojo

Enough about me! Happy 1st B-day to my sweet little lulu!!!!!

Junkers Are The Earth's BFF's


Happy Earth Day!



Today got me thinking...junkers really are an important resource to mother earth. We are green machines! We recycle, upcycle, repurpose, & reuse junk that would otherwise clutter up our earth. We see beauty where others do not. We are the true meaning of green. So, as Mother Earth's BFF's rescue a little cool junk today! jojo

The New Junk Jibberish

Look to your right. Do you see it. This is the our new version of  Junk Jibberish. I felt like we had to many things going on and I wanted to consolidate. This new version allows you to have live trash talk with your fellow junkers. Its not exactly the same as a message board, but I think its better. If you know of sales going on just post it and I will gather them and make a master list. You can post anything from cool junk ideas to questions about what you should do with a piece of junk you just got! Let us know what you think. Its super easy! Let talk some trash!! jojo

No Work~All Play




AHHH! There is work do be done? No way! The junk hunk & I had decided no more weekend junking until after our sale. The remaining weekends are devoted to funking up all our junk. Well, I had to make an exception. Sometimes you have to break the rules. Remember my little junk spot that was no more, well they auctioned off all of his junk this past Saturday and I couldn't pass it up. It was now or never. I arrived at the sale @ 9:30am(in the rain) to look things over and I didn't return home until 7:30pm! What a long day, but what a good haul we got!  2 pick up loads full and a trailer full!!! Can you believe it, I was totally surprised.  
Then came Sunday, finally we got to work! Sanding, scrapping, hammering........ all day! Um we didn't even scratch the surface. We will be busy little funky junky elves in our workshop for the next 3 weeks! NO MORE SALES. I'm not going to even look,peak, or glance at any kind of advertisement, sale bill, or paper ........ I'm not listening. Don't tempt me please. Which is really disappointing because Kay over @ Barntiques is opening her barn doors this Saturday. Bum me! I'll have to see if my sweet mama will go check things out for me! Jo Mama are you reading this???
I'll save more of my ramblings for tomorrow. 
Hope you have a great day! and Happy Junking!! jojo

Rescue Me


Thought of the Day......

Burn Piles Should Be Banned!

These sweet arch pieces and rocker were almost burn victims. My junk hunk says I'm dramatic, hmmm I wonder why? Anyways, my mother in law called me this morning and said that a lady from church wanted to know if we wanted these pieces, otherwise she was lighting the match!  OMG  STOP DRoP & Roll. Yes we will take them. These beauties will be a nice addition to our Spring Fling Sale. As junkers I think its our responsibility to teach others the danger of playing with matches. Just  say no to burn piles! Until you call your favorite junkers that is. Happy junking. jojo

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow


For a couple of years now I have been going to this sweet secret junk spot and only on Tuesday mornings. I don't go every Tuesday, but I always know its an option. So, today I packed the girls up in the truck and we were off to our sweet junk spot. When I pulled in the drive nothing was out of ordinary, but my junk guy didn't come out to greet me. So I knocked on the door and his wife came out. I seriously thought he had passed away suddenly or something, but everything was fine. However, she told me that they had sold the house and they were packing up and moving to town. No more sweet junk spot?! I was devastated and seriously wanted to cry! What will Tuesdays be like with out having the option of going to this sweet spot. So I am left to mourn my Tuesday morning junk jaunts. When one door closes another opens...I'm waiting, I'm still waiting! Hope you all had a great day. Happy junking! jojo

Happy Easter!




Happy Easter!

We have a full day planned! As we speak Kasey is doing the dirt work for our almost completed building. Yippy!! Yesterday, Kasey and his friends got the roof up! This building is a necessity at this point because our barn is oh so full!

I am baking an Oatmeal cake with a almond and coconut topping at this very moment. The easter baskets are full. We will celebrate with family later this morning. Hope you all have a wonderful day! Its a beautiful spring day here. xoxo jojo
