~I am FINALLY back..... with the JUNK!!~

I am back..... I think I took a much needed rest!!! I am now revived and back on the hunt!! My day job has been hectic the past few weeks so all I have been able to do is sleep when I get in. You know those days, even food for dinner did not even catch my attention!! Just Excedrin Migraine and the Bed, my two favorite companions they have been. I hope this week is better for all of us that work there. I was trying to keep up with reading all my favorite blogs but reading was about all I could get done the past week or so. I am soooo glad to be back with all you Junkers in the blog world!!! I did hit the lonesome trail by myself early Saturday morning... I tracked almost across the state in search of New Junk grounds... and boy did I ever find them, I marked them, circled them, highlighted them on my map! Anything to help me get back to them! I think my old faithful junk place is becoming Junked out with too many followers. I had made three trips over the past two weeks there and left empty handed each time.... Well, I got me some new spots!! Not to mention the most exciting news I almost forgot..... I am opening up a second spot at The Sleepy Poet this coming weekend. So I am going to have to hit the ground and run like a goat all week long to get it all accomplished!!

JUNK ...... and it all fit into my Nissan Murrano SUV, can you believe it???? Some of the littles I purchased on Friday but all the big stuff... yep it was all in the back!!! I did not unload last night when I got in because I was about to drop, boy it was Christmas all over again this morning when I popped the hatch... well at least it was for me...... my honey about fainted!! Yes, I got the lecture AGAIN.... did I pay any attention... heck no!

Also just in Jewelry maker husband Scott has TWO more of these just completed..... $25.95 plus $3.50 ship, each come on a rustic link chain with toggle clasp! Contact me for availibility, first come first get!

The little metal creation.... I found this old metal peach cookie sheet and I have not a clue what the metal piece was but they worked perfectly together, a little industrial strength glue and a Rusty Masterpiece was formed!!! Available at The Sleepy Poet $32.95.

New JUNK Jewels Hubby just finished, Blessed & Junk Junkie....$25.95 plus $3.50 to ship, they each come on a rustic link chain with toggle clasp. Just shoot me over an email for availability and to purchase sjbaker@carolina.rr.com, ~ Blessed & Junk Junkie SOLD~
More on the way...

Boy.... Saturday was Cupboard/Cabinet day!!! I love those days.... and these were exactly what I set out on the path looking for! This one is missing the glass in the doors but I love it just the same with out the glass, what ya think??

This Big Cupboard was a Fabulous find... those old doors are glass!! Just a perfect piece!

And more Cupboards!!! If I told you what it cost you would be in disbelief!!! I LOVE when I find NEW Junk suppliers, even though I may have to drive half way across the state everytime I need to go, but like my Hubby and my friend Nevada said, I should hold this one near and dear to myself only!! For once I am taking their advice..... This one just needs those little metal strips removed and some new hardware and I think it will be ready, Loving the brown and green , perfect for Fall!!


My favorite little rusted Junk box ever, SOLD the very day I took it in!!


Chippy stools and Rusty white Scale...LOVE!

This old metal laundry/wash tub basket was one of my favorite finds, actually I purchased two, one for the booth and one for me!! These are soooo crazy hard to find, I have been on the lookout for a while now!!
Crusty Rusty Old Sapp Buckets, perfect for Fall Pansies that will soon be in bloom!


Adorable old white box that had a cool color underneath, attached an old bike tag and its ready to go to the booth!!

More numbers number numbers, my weekness for sure!! I don't care their color shape or form, gotta have them!!

Thanks to all my Junker buds for stopping by to take a peek at my JUNK!! Hopefully I will not be too long before I get another post up and rolling, I have some really cool makeovers coming this week along with some new booth pics to follow!! Have a Blessed week! Hugs, Janna

Oh Wow ..you did hit the trail and find some wonderful Junk !!! I love it all !

So glad you took a rest ..we sure need those from time to time ..and with you keeping a day job ..well you deserved a rest !!!

Better hold a few of those new junkin places secret ..or they'll be scoured clean too ..and a girl has to have a few special haunts that she keeps near and dear to her heart.

Have Fun putting your new booth together ..and looking forward to seeing the picts of it !!

Blessings ..Sara

What a great collection you found!! I love those laundry baskets too, but we dont have them over here...
I love the cupboard without the glass, though you could always put fabric in its place! Youve given me insentive to get back out there to my secret junking spot(sometimes you have to keep it quiet), and find some good junk!

I was getting a little concerned that you had been kidnapped by aliens. I've had so many compliments on my necklace. Looks like you found a great place to buy. Good stuff!!! Jan

common ground said...

Hey Janna, I was wondering where you have been. I was hopin' you hadn't fallen in a dumpster and were unable to get out! We may need one of those alert devices for that!! Love all your new "stuff" and I'm in love with those two sap bucket beauties. Thanks for coming by, always love to hear from you!

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Janna,
I had to tell my hubby...that we have enough STUFF...he went out and bought a hoosier and vanity/dresser for us to resell...while I was working at HQ on Saturday :) Oh well...I don't really mind.
Thanks for visiting me.
Take care.
Warmly,

Lanette of Cottage Elements said...

Wow, Janna. You sure did made a killing on all your finds! I need to find a place where I can find good junk, CHEAP! Maybe I need to make a road trip. I love, too, that your hubby helps with the jewelry (or maybe he does it all!). My hubby just rolls his eyes when I come home with a truck full of stuff. Hey, that's what we do, right! Glad to see your up and blogging again! Hope to make it back someday the the Sleepy Poet. Take care!

Janna, I agree ~ you don't need the glass to be in that awesome old cupboard ~ after all the customers won't even have to open it to scarf up and buy the eye candy that you put in it!!!

Hello Janna,

I love the cupboards, the sap buckets and your junk jewelry. Glad you found some new spots to dig through. :0) I'm a junk sister too!

I'm not sure where your town is but I feel like we are neighbors...I'm another southern lady and I've just moved into our mountain home outside Gatlinburg, Tennessee....I've traveled my entire life but always wanted to come back to my home state..so finally....here I am!!

Drop by for a visit when you have a moment and I'll do the same.

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie
