Spring is in the air despite the little snowstorm we had up here the Seattle area this week. With each blossom stubbornly pushing through the earth my spring fever increases and I’m ready to hit the road in search of more great junk, road food, and new friends.
February’s 2nd Saturdayz was awesome as always. Deb and Linda had many springtime delights as did all the fabulous Junk Tribe vendors at this wonderful monthly vintage market. In addition, 2nd Saturdayz Urban Market made the latest issue of Flea Market Style as one of the BEST small flea markets in the nation! Fabulous news, although most of us already knew this!! Speaking of Flea Market Style, be sure to pick up the latest issue. No Junker should be without a copy. It's jam-packed with ideas, how-tos, and all things FLEA MARKET!
I also finally made it to Portland, OR for a fun filled visit to Monticello’s Antique Market. So many creative dealers under one roof!

I think we can all agree the highways and byways of life are full of potholes and all kinds of crazy obstacles. So today fill up on love for the long road ahead. Here’s to a day filled with hugs, smiles, chocolate, flowers, kisses, and sweet music wherever you are. Share a meal, bottle of wine, box of chocolates, moonlit dance, rock on the porch swing, laugh, hug, or a dream with the one(s) you love.
Share the love, pass it on.
Peace, love, and all the good Valentine’s stuff, y’all!

My favorite romantic movies:
1. Room with a View
2. The Rookie
3. Bull Durham
4. Under the Tuscan Sun
5. What’s Up Doc?
