Thrifty Junk Thursday no. 6

Tonight for Thrifty Junk Thursday I have a trunk. I purchased this treasure at Goodwill this week.
I got this baby for $5.99, not bad. I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it. I just knew I couldn't pass it up.
Have a good evening.

New Shades

I have been on a mission to find new lamp shades for my lamp redo. I found these shades at Old Time Pottery for $12 each. I love that store.
Any way...
I just realized I forgot
Thrifty Junk Thursday.
So here are a couple items I have gotten for free (or inherited) in the past few months.
My mother and father gave me these two shelves and this chair. There's nothing like getting something for free! Dad even made the shelves.
I just love family!
Have a restful night.
See you tomorrow.

Farming Festival

After attending the Country Living Fair this weekend, we went to the local farming festival. There were more tractors than you could imagine. The girls and I fell in love with this one. I think you can see why. What girl doesn't like pink?
And some zebra print...
If John Deere sold these pink babies, I think there would be more women farmers. What do you think?
Speaking of...
There were some ladies driving tractors.
You go girls!
Besides tractors there were lots of other fun things going on.
We had a good time and spent some money.
Have a peaceful night.

Country Living Fair Part 2

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.  I thought I'd share some pics from the Country Living Fair 2012.
I really wanted that "U", it was $95.
That truck was pretty sweet too!
I could definitely haul some stuff.
Even the port o john had country flair.
I got so many amazing ideas and I'm pumped.
See you tomorrow.
Have a restful night.

Country Living Fair! Part 1

After years of waiting, I finally was able to attend the Country Living Fair. Vendors were everywhere with masses of treasures. Many amazing booth displays, so much eye candy! Junk has definitely made it to the big times. I remember when I was a kid and even as a teen when my mother would get the magazine. It seemed like it was just antiques with high dollar prices. I don't know if it's the economy or people upcycling/recycling and going green. Something is happening. People love junk! And they'll pay for it too.
 The most exciting part of today I got to see Cari, from Cash and Cari on HGTV. She even bumped into me and excused herself (before I realized who she was).
I just happened upon her booth RePurpose. There were some really cool finds.
Cari was the fair's guest speaker. She talked about her family history of picking and repurposing. Also, she had slides of her home and her own upcycling. Cari prefers to reuse and she actually bought her living room furniture on Craig's List. There were a few sneak previews of  next season's episodes (which starts in March).
Tune in tomorrow for part 2.
