Weekend Junkin’ & Monday Funday Party

Hey there, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!! With another successful weekend of junkin’ behind me, I thought I’d continue my tradition of showing off some of my finds!! I’d say I had a pretty hefty haul and this is just one load!! Ha ha!!

Junk Haul

I was all over the place this weekend!! I spent two days at the Salvage Sisters sale… and racked up on some awesome spring time treasures!! An old wagon, a rusty wheel barrow, a milk can, wooden berry baskets, beautiful aqua furniture and more!! Then I hit auctions!! I had never been to the small town of Kittrell, NC before, but when I arrived and spotted this friendly fella at the stoplight, I knew I was in for some small town charm!!

Small Town Charm

I scored lots of other funky rusty junk!! Some old buckets, tool boxes, an old kitchen scale…

Vintage Kitchen Scale

I even snagged a couple rusty toys!!

Antique Toy Cash Register

 Did you see the old toy horse I posted on Facebook!! Cute, right?!? And while I didn’t score that ‘lil guy, I did get a whole box of old horse show ribbons and some horse toys to go with it!! Every girl has a little cowgirl in her, right?!?

But the one thing, I have regrets about is this little lady…

Antique Smith Corona Typewriter
Not because I should have bid more… or because I passed her over. But because I missed the sale completely!! Maybe that was when I went to get my homecooked pintos and cornbread (which were amaizing by the way!!) or perhaps, I hit the potty. But the sale ended and I never saw it being auctioned… I asked about it. And she was already sold! Bummer!! But there will always be more sales… and likely more pretty typewriters!!

Now… what there won’t be more of (for me, anyway) are Monday Funday parties!! The lovely Monday Funday ladies were kind enough to invite me to guest host for six weeks and can you believe six weeks has passed already?!? Time flies!! So here it… my last Monday Funday party!! Have fun!!
