It's FUN to go junkin'!!!

And believe me, little Clara was such a good sport the entire day!!!
So was our Noah ~ as long as they came away
with a few goodies, everyone is happy!!

Of course it's really fun if you take your socks and shoes off....
and kick your heels up too!!!

This was true junkin' that we did Saturday and we all had a blast.
Emily found treasures for their home and
we found a few for the antique space too.

One of our wonderful finds!!!! Who doesn't love an antique typewriter?

These little treasures are in their "before state" but treasures all the same.

Everything looks beautiful under glass doesn't it?

Junkers in training......

And this is how we all felt when we were finished!!!!

What a great day, to go junking. I especially love the old typewriter. For some reason I have a fascination with these! Thanks, Dawn, for linking my blog giveaway here as well. Have a great day! Carol

Unknown said...

What fun! I love to go places where I have to dig. You never know what you may come up with. Cute kiddos. Looks like they enjoyed the day also.

The Country Nest said...

Looks like a fun day. Love the pic of Clara sleeping with the little bare feet. It is still cold here with more snow coming. I could feel the warm air and happy day in your pictures.

How wonderful! So many treasures and to have the opportunity to share those experiences with your family = pure joy!

I love the photos of the kids! Clara asleep is the perfect example of peace!

Thank you for sharing!

Vee said...

What adorable "junkers in training"! And my goodness! You really did make quite a haul!

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Morning Dawn,
I came over from Kathy @ sweet upnorth mornings.
What a lovely blog you have, and your creations are truly beautiful, I think my friend Becky from Holiday in the sun might own one of your creations as well. Very pretty!
Your lil dog is just adorable. My son has a jack russell and my daughter a longhaired chijuajua.
So it was interesting to see the combination.
A great one for sure!!
So nice to meet you hon,
Blessings Nellie

Dawn this is exactly the kind of sale I love. Junk as far as the eye can see. Those iron urns(?) would have had to come home with me. They would look so great in the garden. Little Clara and Noah had a good teacher today. They should turn out to be pros.
Hugs and love,

Charlene said...

I tell you Noah & Clara look like brother & sister!!!! You can sure tell the genes on your side of the family are STRONG! Glad you had fun. Charlene

Kerry O'Gorman said...

These places are to me like giant candy stores! Know wonder they call it treasure hunting...I could just about feel the quickening of your pulse as you pulled into the yard. Fun fun fun!

Simply Shelley said...

Hi Dawn,looks like you all had some fun this day...maybe Clara will become your little Junken buddy Sidekick as my Jalyn was in the days before she started school...we had the best times thrifting etc.but,her mama wasn't always to happy about all the junk she brought home with a blessed week....

Anne Lorys said...

Wow, wonderful haul! Did y'all really buy those two bathtubs???

And yep, I loves me a good vintage typewriter, too!

Sweet Clara!


Unknown said...

Dawn, your grandbabies are the best!! Love those little feet!!!! It looks like you all had a great time and I LOVE the cloche you found!

BellaRosa said...

Dawn amor, you weren't kidding, that type writer is wonderful...I bow to you for being able to "let it go" My stars we don't have "junkin" like that here....I wish :) although I have been known to sit down on the floor at a thirft and sit and pull things out from under piles...found a few treasures like that :) You all found some great treasures!! Bebe Clarita...well I just wanna eat her..and Noah, my stars when did that happen?? He is lookin so grown Dawn! He is such a good can see how much he loves bebe Clarita :) Have a wonderful day sweetie and thank you for all your help :) Besos, Rose

Myrna said...

O what fun! I can hardly wait till Lindy gets to be Clara's age..what a cutie-patootie! And Noah is SUCH the proud uncle!!
What fun times junkin all've got them off to a GREAT start! That's what my mom did with me when I was little. Maybe that's why it's so comforting to me when I go junkin' now that she's makes me feel closer to her somehow...
Anyhoo, thanks for popping in and leaving sweet comments~it' always a treat to have you visit!!

paperbird said...

Wow! Sure wish I looked that cute junkin! ;) Looks like you picked a good shopping spotand found some good the typewriter! And did you buy those urns, I am so loving those!!! I bet they weigh a ton - that's okay we all know that Romeo would not be the one to have to haul them home ;)
