Wow...I have been gone from this blog for almost a year.
That's what happens when life throws you a curve ball.
I thought it's about time to come and put this blog to rest.

We are still picking, dealing, and will continue selling at our shop.
But we are also making some changes. Changes that are good.
I believe in keeping things simple so I will continue all my posts at Old Time Farmhouse.

It's a blog about our sweet and simple lifestyle.
I'll also include our pickin' fun and finds there.
These photos are from over the weekend.
I crates or barrels this time. What's up with that?  :)

I thank you all who have supported us here.

Hope to see you at Old Time Farmhouse

Fasten Your Seat Belts

Look who came home with me.
Precious cargo. A seat belt was a must.
Extra large and heavy.

And such a great price. It's worth 10 times the price I paid for it.
We bought it from Jeff at the flea market. We've bought from him before.
He didn't want to have to load this back up and take it home. Thus, the low price.

I'm keeping this piece and may use it as a prop for my soaps.
Yes, I'm thinking of adding old time soap to our shop.
I'm playing with the idea so we'll see.
And this will look fabulous in my dining room.

I haven't posted forever here.
I've been over to my Old Time Farmhouse blog.
And the month of June was difficult for me. 
I posted about it here.

I'm taking a blogging break from Old Time Farmhouse.
I may do the same here or I may pop in once in awhile to show some pickins I've come across. As you can imagine, my summer schedule is full.

So I hope y'all fasten your seat belts and enjoy your summer ride.
And roll those windows down while you're at it to enjoy the summer breeze.
Happy pickins to ya!!!

Odds & Ends and Good Junk

Have you ever found an old junk shop unexpectedly?
A shop with odds & ends and good junk?

It happened to us yesterday when leaving a flea market.
It's a flea market that is only held twice a year.
We found some great items there for the shop. And for me, of course.

When leaving the flea market, we decided to go a different route home.
So glad we did as we spotted some rustic junk scattered all about this wonderful small shop just down the road from the flea market.

You might know the kind of shop...
really tight spaces, you have to dig through it all, and you come out filthy when you're done.

And it is all so worth every minute of it.
We also had a good time talking with Frank, the owner. He's quite a character.
I know I'll be going back again to dig and find more good junk. 
In Frank's words...'Odds & Ends and Good Junk' to describe his shop.

Here's hoping you had a wonderful, long weekend and that you had a chance to go pickin', too. Till next time, have a good one!

Auction Picks

Hey all you pickers out there!
Did you find anything over the weekend?
We went to an auction across the lake from us.
Cutest little log home and a nice selection to bid on.

We walked away with some pieces for us and some for resale.
The white rockers are on our front porch.
The cabinet with the porcelain top is for me.
I have no idea where it will go, but I'll find a spot for it soon.
Would you believe I only paid $30 for that cabinet?

So happy that pickin' season is in full swing again!
Aren't you?

Pickin' Barn Wood

Poor ole' guy.
He's old and falling apart.
At my age, I can understand that.

We gathered up some of the wood over the weekend.
Barn wood is not a new passion of mine.
I've obsessed over it for years...37 years to be exact.
It all started with a friend's barn back then. 
We picked the wood and made some projects.

So the obsession continues.
And so do the projects.

Just wondering...what do you think of barn wood?
