Junk Days of Summer

Where to begin! I'm a live...... NO, I haven't fallen in a hole somewhere while junking, but it sure does seem like it. Especially, with my lack of blogging the past weeks. This summer is flashing before me like a dream. Popsicles, sunbathing by the kiddy pool, and Junking!

I have so much I want to share with you all! We have been junking like mad. Stocking up for the Junk Bonanza and our Harvest Market. Junking Rule No. 1 - NEVER go far from home without a trailer. Thanks goodness we spent Friday afternoon unloading it! We headed out early Saturday morning to a sale. You never no what to expect. It was a good sale. Lots of competition, but we held our own. However, what made the day a huge success was an invitation by an older man to stop by his building after the sale. So, when we were finished and all loaded up, we followed this guy quite a ways to his storage building.

Let me stop here and say, our Fairy Junk Mother was totally looking out for us!!**

The storage building wasn't huge, but it was hiding lots of good junk!! It was not organized. Everything was piled on top of each other. When you moved one thing, you revealed another. It was like Christmas morning for us junkers! It was a tough decision, but here are my 5 favorite finds:

We had a blast. The adventure is such a huge part of junking and an adventure we did have. More tomorrow....maybe even a giveaway!!!!

You are one fortunate junker, I'm thinkin...

You must have made a good impression on that gentleman for him to take you to his out building to see more.
