Junking Trip

Happy Wednesday Everyone.  

 I am heading out tomorrow for a few days with my junkin buddy to Iowa.  We are headed to Junk Jubilee.  It is about a 4 to 5 hour drive from Chicago for us.  Easy Peasy two girls, a snack basket, diet cokes and a whole lot of catching up the drive will be over in no time!!!! Plus my friend Sandy has mapped out a lot of cute shops in little towns along the route for us to visit. 

 Wooooo Hoooo I need a new adventure and a girls trip.  We have never been to this show so we are hoping it is as good as everyone says.  Hope to find some fun treasures.

Hunt, Rescue and Repurpose Treasures

So I will be on the road and will check back with everyone over the week end when I return.  

Please come by on Saturday for our Spotlight Feature.  We have two amazing bloggers for you to meet.  I will be featuring Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique and Susan will be featuring Becky from Timewashed.  They are two great bloggers you will want to get to know on a more personal level.

Have a great rest of the week.  Woooooo Hoooooo off to Junk Jubilee!!!
