More pictures of items that will be reduced for Signs of Spring...

Little light green stand

The pear box & the granite bucket...

Chippy old little cupboard - would make a great night stand...

Cute little medicine cabinet...except the glass broke on the way to Bonanza last year, so it will be ON SALE!

Two metal chairs...

Cute little yellow potty chair...
Again, the dates and time for my sales are May 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 8:00 am - noon. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check this blog regularly for any changes. Lately my front yard has been looking like a river, not a yard. Soooooo if it looks like that night before a sale I will more than likely have to be closed!

MaRk DoWns for SiGns oF SpRing!!!

That's right - I am doing mark downs as I write this post. I still have lots of great stuff left over from last fall's trip to Junk Bonanza...and as many of you know I was not so lucky with my Harvest of Junk sale in October (tons of rain and only about 5 customers!)...so that means I need to get rid of some of the old to make room for all of the new!

Here are a few pictures from last fall that include things I will be marking down!

Red wagon & little red swing...sorry, the six-year old is not for sale!

Great wooden blue box & wooden tote

Old metal automotive advertising with hooks

White metal kitchen shelf with cute decals, some of the chickens are still available as well as the little blue box and red metal table

The blue/gray shelf/bench and white table are still available

More pictures to be coming soon!!!!

My Legs at Junk Bonanza!

Check out the Junk Bonanza website - they have updated it and it looks great! Check out my legs below - they're on the website! Heather Bullard took the picture last year on the first day of Bonanza. I never thought my legs would be so popular!!!!

A link to the website is over there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Getting Ready for Signs of Spring...

Again, I had great intentions for the weekend. I wanted to get lots done for my "Signs of Spring" sales in May (see schedule at end of this post). With absolutely no plans or commitments I thought that I could get tons done. Then, about 10:00 yesterday morning the headache of the year arrived. I say "of the year" because I rarely get headaches of this magnitude. The back of my neck, around my eyes, and my jaw ached. I took Advil all day long, but still could barely get out of bed! I watched lots of Lifetime, Soapnet, and the Criminal Minds marathon on A & E...and thought about how much I wasn't getting done!

Today, however, was much more productive.

Here are a couple pieces that I picked up last week. This picture makes this look much bigger, but it actually just a small dresser.

This is going in the shed for displaying for upcoming sales...

Here's a few items that will be for sale at "Signs of Spring"

Love these old metal dollhouses. I may have shown them before. They would be great for organizing mail, bills, etc.

Some old thermoses and a Hiland potato chip can...


More enamelware...

and more enamelware...

An old baby bed that I got at an auction a few weeks ago~ now, what to do with it???

Some smaller printers drawers ~ should I paint them white?

A big box of tons of different salt and pepper shakers and other stuff!
Found this little table at the auction, too. It was a dark stain. Today I painted it this robin's egg color. Should I keep it this color? I plan to distress it, too.

A little doll bed that I painted pink...

An old wooden crate ~ it is actually a very pale gree, but the photo does not show the color!

An example of some of my favorites ~ old book pages and old jewelry!

This picture snuck in the wrong way! :( Another wooden crate for spring...

And now, for my newest creations...this makes me nervous. This is my first try at mixing/repurposing vintage jewelry. Some of this came from ebay, some from local auctions, and some from my Grandma. Tell me what you think!

Finally...the dates and times for Signs of Spring 2010 are:
May 8, 15, 22, 29
8:00 am - noon
PLEASE read my blog regularly, however, for possible changes in this schedule. The only reason that I would close would be due to weather. If there is a rain/thunderstorm than I will more than likely be closed! I will keep the blog updated as much as possible during the days before each sale.
AND, remember that if you are coming from out of town that you can make a day out of it!!
I am only about 5 minutes from the Tanger Factory Outlet Center. AND, for more antique shopping, I am about a half an hour from Kalona and about 15 minutes from the Amana Colonies.
Look forward to seeing you in May!

World's Worst Blogger...

That's me! Yes, I am the world's worst blogger. I have no excuse. I am sure that I am no busier than anyone else in blogland. So, all I can do is aplogize and let you know what unimportant things have been keeping me busy.

After Daytona there honestly was not an entirely free weekend again until the end of March! This included a girls' scrapbooking weekend, a Women of Faith conference, our school carnival, and other numerous events. And, I have been trying to be creative here and there as well.

I have also managed to hit a couple of auctions over the last few weekends. Found some great stuff. Will show pictures in a post later this week (really, I will!)

I have also nailed down the dates for my 2010 sales. If you gave me your mailing address than look for the information to be coming soon! I will also post the dates on here. I am looking forward to being open more often and hopefully meeting some of you at my sales.

Stay tuned...and I promise to be better!
