Hey, Y'all! In this first week of the new year I've already been JUNKIN' a few times. On New Year's Day I went for a drive on the back-roads between Brenham and Burton. Nothing was open, but it was fun taking the slow way home and seeing the lovely farmhouses, baby calves, and first daffodils. On the second day of the new year, I met up with my sweet friend, Theresa and we headed to Canton for First Monday Trades Days. It was COLD!! 

But being the diligent junkers we are, we simply added more layers and shopped. We shopped the fields first and saw all sorts of good stuff, including this inspiring paper skirt. After a few hours in the fields we headed to the Arbors and caught up with Maggie and Lillie. More inspiration for sure!

Vignette in Maggie and Lillie's booth at Arbor III.
Love this garden chair with it's cool cushion in
Maggie and Lillie's Arbor III booth.

An adorable dresser and chandelier also
found in Maggie and Lillie's booth.
This vignette has me dreaming of spring garden parties. 
  We stopped at a few more places on the way home until the truck was FULL

After a day of rest, I hit the road again and caught up with Theresa and many other vendors at the Rural Texas Antique Show in Brenham. Here's a peek at what her Garden Antqs Vintage booth looked like. It was gorgeous!
Love the way Garden Antqs Vintage combines rust and ironstone.
And nests and nature...
Cool idea! Metal light in a bird cage--love it!
Garden Antqs Vintage adds a few petite roses to old gloves.
Love the rust and roses!

This cute pink table went home with me!

 Yes, I believe 2014 is off to a good start with many more adventures to come!

Until next time, 
Peace, love, and all the 
good stuff, sweet friends. 


  1. Love seeing a truck filled to the top. Great stuff! Happy New Year

  2. Wow, you've had some fun adventures already in 2014. I'm getting antsy to go junkin' but I have a few other priorities like my sweet mom's health so I'll just have to wait a little while. Hope to see you soon.
