But that's not junk! Those are treasures.... great finds....... yesterdays memories and tomorrows stories!
Being that I just got home from a fabulous roadtrip that began in Ottawa and took me and one of my "besties" down through the southern states I can tell you that a roadtrip on the westcoast to Spokane, Washington is a must for the calendar. Are you in?

" What began as a little sale in a friend's barn in 2002, became The Farm Chicks Antiques Show with antiques, vintage objects, handmade goods, and wonderful vendors. The show, held annually on the west coast is host to approximately 150 vendors and draws visitors from across the country."
And the best part is.... we are all invited to go! Can you imagine what we might find? Vintage knockers, wire dress forms, colored glass, or some old postcards with peoples messages recorded on the back.
These girls who are hosting are truly savy. You will love their website right away. What is a Farm Chick? I quote them from thier post:
"A Farm Chick is a girl who sees the world through rose-colored glasses. She loves her family. She laughs a lot. She's farmgirl meets Fifth Avenue and with a little style, she'll change the world."
I LOVE THAT.
Serena herself has a blog and you can check in on her http://thefarmchicks.typepad.com
Rose colored glasses - everyone needs a pair of those.
A friend to sit and have coffee with - I bet there's a few of those there too.
I think we should buy a truck girls. Can we all chip in? Laughter, sing-songs, coffee stops, and lot's of browsing, shopping and dreaming.
Who will make the best find? The craziest find? The "oh, I wanted that" find. It could be one of you too.
Just gotta go.
