Catching Up...

I have been very absent lately...mostly due to school starting for both me and the boys. I am also very busy preparing for Junk Bonanza which is coming up in just a few short weeks. This weekend I will be up to my eyeballs in paint, pricetags, mod podge, hot glue....and trying to figure out how to make my booth look wonderful...I am thinking burlap, white tulle and white Christmas lights. I am sure it will all come together...can't wait for September 14th!

On a different subject...Harvest of Junk is right around the corner as well. The week after Junk Bonanza, actually. This year it will be on a Saturday, all day, from 8:00 am - 3:00 pm. The best part of this year's HOJ is that from 2:00 - 3:00 everything that is left will be at least 25% off. There may be other items that will be reduced even more. I am also hoping to get my hands on some pumpkins, gourds, and mums for this year's sale. AND, Sam might be selling some homemade goodies again ~ cupcakes, cookies, who knows?

Finally, I noticed that this is my 197th post...a 200th post giveaway is in the near future. I promised my facebook followers a giveaway awhile back, too, and haven't made good on that yet. So, get on over there and follow (search for "The Farmers Wife" on FB) and there will be a giveaway on there soon, too. I am thinking a bottle cap necklace, some other fallish looking jewelry, some other fun trinkets....a nice little junk goodie bag for one follower on here and one on Facebook!

Stay Tuned!

Odds & Ends....

A few of these have been added to my etsy shop...I'll be adding even more next week!

Couple more auction finds...I L.O.V.E. these light blue BINGO cards...cannot wait to use them!!!

A Spirograph!!!!! I had one of these when I was 8 or 9...I loved it! I think I am going to try to show my boys how its done!

A project I started this week...sweater flower pillow...found the idea on another blog (sorry to the blogger I got the idea from, cannot remember who you are!) These are not the greatest pictures. Black can be hard to photograph!

a few What Cheer finds...

Just a few of the great finds from What Cheer yesterday...wish I could have gone back again today, but I ran out of money! :)

Please excuse the LONG grass...can you believe that we have TWO lawn mowers and BOTH are out of comission?!?!

Great color on this wheel barrow!
Little tool box/soil test kit...the labels look great!

I had a few more pictures of these little tables but my computer is acting up (that new DELL cannot get here fast enough!), so I just have these two...

Love the little tables...will probably paint them...any thoughts on color? White? Black? Aqua? Maybe even hot pink? :) I would like to try something new. Please give me some ideas!

TrUnK ShOws for FaLL....

Fall is almost upon us....

If you are interested in hosting a trunk show or workshop in your home in September, October or November, please contact me immediately...these months will be extremely busy for me and I need to get dates in order....

September & October shows will contain fall & halloween items and November shows will contain Christmas & winter items. All shows will still contain the non-seasonal creations such as home decor, bags, and well as bits and pieces of great junk!

If you have never hosted a trunk show and have questions, just shoot me an email. The shows I have done have been tons of fun and the hostesses have been pretty pleased with their success! All of my 2011 hostesses will also be receiving gift certificates for my Holiday show in November....

Hope to start booking some trunk shows soon!!!!!
