Funky Junk Sisters Show

In the spur of the moment, Joy, Lisa and I decided to drive on Sunday 2 1/2 hours north to visit some of our friends at the Funky Junk Sisters first annual show in Puyallup, WA. We had so much fun!! It was nice to be able to visit with our friends without having to worry about rushing back to our booths, like we always do.... And we came home with some great treasures!

The Funky Junk Sisters with Mom!

We were delighted to see our sweet friend Tiffany from Shabby Scraps, she is always so upbeat and we love her!!

Kris and Amy from Today's Country Store had a wonderful space at the show...

We met up with Timi and Laura (not in the picture...) and giggled a bit more...!! Timi has the funniest blog and her stories always make me laugh!

I would have bought this adorable framed vintage wedding veil from Lulu if I could afford it... But I did buy some other cool stuff from her!

Debi had a wonderful collection of horse prize ribbons, and I couldn't resist buying some from her....

After we left the show, we couldn't resist traveling just a few minutes away to Sumner, and visit the Today's Country Store... What an incredible collection of vintage goodies (I was so mesmerized I forgot to take pictures inside...)!! Then a couple of stops at Goodwill (what is a fun day without some thrifting...?) and home we came, happy and tired.

I was very happy with what I bought, some I will keep and some I will sell... Here is my loot!!

I always love to find old feed sacks...

... Cool metal suitcase...

Lisa says I am a magnet for little vintage doll strollers...

... You know I love needlepoint...

... Love the detail on this small silver tray...

This chair is one of my favorite purchases!

... Old quilt block...

... Sweet vintage prize ribbons...

... Old letters (from 1914!) and a rosary....

... And this darling old rocking chair!

... Old brush, hanger and fabric...

... A vintage necktie box, frame and bed lamp (this one at Goodwill). Also at Goodwill, these awesome white cowboy boots! Too bad they're too small for me...

Finally, a great Craigslist find from this weekend!!! A tufted velvet chaise (very comfortable!!), which will go with me to Expo in July... That reminds me... I've gotta get busy!!!
