The weather says cloudy for Saturday....but 77 degrees!
I'll take that! I've had way too many rainy sales, so I will take the clouds over a thunderstorm...

There will be mums, sweater pumpkins (pictures to come soon),  cookies, and other goodies for sale. Not to mention Halloween and fall decor...and lots of other good junk!

Hope to see you then!

Jack-O-Lids....6 years in a ROW!!!

I've been working on these crazy faces again...I figured out that this is my 6th year of making these! People are still buying them, though!
What started out as a good way to get rid of all those extra enamel lids I would pick up at auctions, flea markets, etc. has turned into one of my customer favorites - year after year!
Here are just a few - unfinished, waiting for stems, eyes, etc...


These will be available at Harvest of Junk on the 29th

As I was driving to work this morning I was thinking about how I should be driving to Shakopee for this....

Really, really missing Junk Bonanza this year....but I am sure my legs will still be there....I can't believe are still using this picture! It was taken by Heather Bullard on the first day of Bonanza in 2009 (my first year as a vendor).

HOPING to get back to Bonanza some day....when life slows down a little!

Recent Projects and Junk Finds

This is what I have been working on for the last several weeks ~ Zippy flowers....3rd year in a row that I have been making these

And MORE zippy flowers....

Look at these beauties from the Salvation Army! What should I do with them?? Spray paint them - black? white?

Close up!

Another Salvation Army score...this is super light weight plastic. Again, spray paint?

Found this cubby at a nearby farm back in August. I think it would look great with a bunch of baby pumpkins in it.

Found this at the What Cheer flea market. I think I am keeping it for my future laundry room.

Child's chair from an auction...paint it orange or black for Halloween??

baskets, baskets, the wire baskets

Fun kitchen stuff...might fill the pans with greenery for Christmas??

Another possibility for Christmas decor...

Cake carrier....might have to keep this, too!

MORE candlesticks!!!! Bright orange for Halloween??
