FOR THE LOVE OF JUNK

SOME WOMEN DREAM OF BEAUTIFUL HOMES AND PERFECTION. SOME DREAM OF THE DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH, OUTCAST ITEMS, THE TATTERED, THE CRAZED, THE RUSTED AND SOMETIMES DISCARDED TREASURES. IM A MEMBER OF THE SECOND GROUP. I'M A JUNKER FOR LIFE!

This is how it gets done in Texas

   I have been told us Texans brag a lot. I say if you are good, there is no bragging, you simply got it going on. Point in case, my friend Krista and her husband Shawn. This two got the most amazing talent for finding the most amazing stuff. Not only they find it, they literally give it away. Krista had been working for weeks preparing for this mini show, not mini because they didn't have stuff, mini because they didn't have a large amount of people coming, mostly the folks that supported their antique shop. They are perfectionists, they meticulously pick their wares and because of those facts they achieve a lot of success in a very short amount of time. Then you add to that the fact that they are the best friends in life, they are kind and love taking care of people. They make you feel like they have been your friends for ages and this is not forced, it just comes from their heart. So for the three people that read my blog, I give you yumminess, straight from the heart of Texas.










We will do it again tomorrow. I believe we will put together something like this for my open house in a couple of months. I will keep you posted. Blessings, Marta.

Oh marta, I would've bought so much from them. Liz told me she bought the cabinet from you. I told her she had too. I wish I were closer so I could attend or even participate in your open house. Tammy at the beach in Nc.
