A cutie peeking out from a fabulous rusty buggy
in Today's Country Farm &Frills booth at Ruffles
 & Rust A Vintage Market to Inspire!

Hey, Y'all! Junkin' was my Mother's Day treat last weekend as the beautiful, winding back roads led to Monroe, WA. Monroe has always been one of my favorite junkin' spots and this trip was extra special because of two wonderful events-- Ruffles & Rust A Vintage Market To Inspire and the grand re-opening of M&M Antiques. Here's a glimpse of how amazing it all looked!
I'm told Betty "gets around" and has had her
picture made at all kinds of fun markets
 and locations. She belongs to Bride on a Bike. Isn't she fun?

More fun stuff from Bride on a Bike at Ruffles & Rust.

As always, Auntie's was full of all kinds of wonderful treasures.

Garden Party was gorgeous as ever!

More vintage loveliness from Garden Party.

Garden Party's collection of Victorian German mugs.
Today's Country Farm & Frills (formerly Today's Country Store)
 had all kinds of vintage wonderfulness too. Owners, Amy and Kris,
 are opening their NEW store, Today's Country Farm
 & Frills, June 29 at 880 Main St. in Buckley, WA!

Love the way this vendor used paper umbrellas in
her beautiful booth--sadly, forgot to get her name.

Ruffles & Rust A Vintage Market to Inspire was an AWESOME show. The bonus came down the road and around the corner where M&M Antiques was hosting their Grand Re-Opening. Once located on Main St., M&M Antiques recently put on a "parade" and moved into the old St. Vincent's Thrift Store location at 123 Lewis in Downtown, Monroe. Here's a sneak peek at their fun parade and what their new place looks like. It is quite simply full of incredible dealers and fantastic stuff!

A little Mother's Day (or let's just admit it, ANY day of) JUNKIN' goes a long way...or it will have to for me, sweet friends.

Next week our family begins it's trek back to TEXAS. Our son and I will be heading out in a big ole U-Haul driving the now familiar blacktop from WA to TX. We expect it will be the first of a couple of loads this summer. It is the beginning of a new life journey for our entire family...but knowing me, I'm sure to stop for a JUNKIN' break along the way...after-all I've already got the U-Haul! (Just kidding...sort of!)

Peace, love, and all the good stuff, dear friends!


  1. Make sure you only pack that U-Haul HALF FULL!! Gotta save room for all your finds along the way!! hahaha This looks like an awesome show....I'm lovin Betty!! :)

  2. LOL! I always find ROOM for more JUNK!! :D I've still got a little room in our TX storage unit too! ;) Thanks for stoppin' by Jenny! Hope to catch up with you again soon down the blacktop! Betty's somethin' else! xxoos
