Antique Junk

posted on: Monday, September 26, 2011



Last week, 4 of my girlfriends and I, went on an antique junk yard extravaganza. Let me say, it was one of the best times I've had in a very long while. Just to make it even better, it was the first day that it was chilly enough to justify a jacket and boots! *squeal* We all loaded up, pulling a trailer, as we drove along for all of our goodies that we knew we'd find! The place is a good 45 minutes away, which gave us some good road trip, girl time.

Oh man, I can't even tell you how much fun we had! It was drizzling as we went on the hunt for treasures in all the barns and open fields that were  full of junk and stuff. I can spend hours in places like this. It's just all so dreamy to me, with all the yuck and old and musty...I still love it!  I snapped some pics to share the joy with you guys! Enjoy!

Jessie's first time in the "dresser barn."
Caitlyn (and Tillie) picking out some awesome doors for a headboard.


Some of our amazing finds!
My FAVORITE finds of all time. This freaking awesome clock in the back has gorgeous, rusted, exposed gears and the black metal wind up clock still works. (I've mentioned it before, but for years I've been obsessed with old clocks! I have to use restraint. Otherwise I'll be crowded out of my house by tick-tocks.  haha!) $5 for both
New blanket stand (I finally found a ladder).
Great antique door for our bedroom. 

By the way, Caitlyn's little sweetie Matilda Fair (Tillie) was born yesterday! I cannot tell you how excited all of us girls are that she is finally here! Eeeeee!!! All day yesterday we were hanging on every text message Jessie sent out, updating us on her progress. I showed a picture of Tillie to K√°el and he kissed it 2 times! *melting* I kept tearing up, of course I've been tearing up all the time lately about anything to do with Forest and my friend's babies. I can't believe how many new, beautiful little souls have been born into our little community lately! It's crazy awesome! Ah! My friend Kara is just a couple weeks away from her baby boy's due date too! Babies, babies BABIES!
