New Day, New Junk, New Blog!

I have been in more of a junking mood this past week than I have in a while. I contribute that to a book I read last week on the way out of town, which was about a Savannah "picker" for antique dealers. It was a fun mystery, but also full of great antiques and junk and estate sale goodness! So the first thing I did Monday when we got back in town was hit the thrift stores around town. Unfortunately, my favorite one was closed (probably because it was Labor Day), but I still managed to find a few good things!

I've also been inspired lately to junk, because of some great blogs I stumbled across. I never realized what goodies were out there in blogland! All of the ones I have had before (and read) were family blogs. Somewhere along the way, I clicked on a link for a decorating blog, and a whole new world opened up. There are other people out there, just like me! Who love junk! And vintage finds! And garage sales and flea markets and junk stores and thrift stores and...well, you get the idea. I have especially enjoyed seeing the befores and afters. So, I thought I would try my hand at the same. At the very least, it will be a great way for me to document all of the great finds I run across, as well as maybe push me to actually do something with those same great finds, instead of shoving them in closets or the garage.

All week, I looked forward to getting up and getting out this morning to find some goodies. And boy, did I! I will post pictures soon.
