Papercrafting Vintage Style – Follow Us To Antique Week!
We’re taking a journey to the past, then creating something new!
Are there any junkers in the house?
How about antique collectors?
Garage and yard sale addicts?
Yup, I’m heading to the mecca of junkin’ here in Central Texas (some would say in the U.S.!) for a weekend filled with box-dumpin’, pile searchin’, treasure findin’ fun!
Oh, and kicks and grins with my Austin gal pals!
What’s that? What’s this got to do with papercrafting?
I assure you it is related!
You see, I love finding vintage items to use in my projects and old storage items to incorporate into my space, and of course there are the vintage scrapbooks – I love finding those and giving them a new home!
Oh yeah, and the lovely Jenni Bowlin will be there selling her vintage finds!
See, I knew you’d get it!
Oh, so now you want to come along?
Well, hop aboard the junkin’ express!
Follow us on Instagram and you’ll see what I see…hopefully live!
Now, please understand that this is a fairly remote area with challenging cell reception and there will be hundreds, if not thousands, of junkers like me trying to share what they see through Instagram and other channels.
That said, I will do my best to share often so you can come along as I search for my must-have goodies, and the treasures I fall in love with, but have to leave behind for one reason or another.
At the very least, I’ll be sharing my finds when I come home…after I recover from walking for miles in the Texas heat!
What kinds of treasures will I be hunting for?
Ooh, I have a list…a long list!
Wanna see it?
Yeah, I thought you might!
I did forget one thing – an old typewriter (in working order for less than $50 – wish me luck!).
And now, I leave you with my version of a well-known John Denver song…
“All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go, I’m standing here outside the door,
I hate to have to tell y’all good-bye.
But the clock is tickin’, I’m gonna be late, my friends are waitin’, it’s gonna be great
Already I’m so excited I could die…”
So, what would you be looking for
if you could go junkin’ with me, for real?
Share your wish list ’cause you never know –
the Great Pumpkin might just deliver it to your door!
Have a great weekend and pop in and say hi on Instagram if you get a chance,
