My Etsy Store Finds

My Etsy Store Finds

Yesterday morning I was determined to stay home from Estate sales and get caught up on my listings for my Etsy stores.  That didn’t last too long.  I found a killer sale in Murfreesboro, Tennessee just down the road from us in Antioch.  It sounded wonderful.  So off we went.  I was a little disappointed in their prices even at 30% off.  But that didn’t stop me from bringing home some goodies.   This is a black Amethyst trophy vase. …

November in Tennessee

November in Tennessee

This is the most beautiful time of the year in Tennessee. The leaves were so colorful though not near as nice this year because of the warm weather.  Now the leaves have fallen and the chill is in the air.  I didn’t manage to get any pictures of the colors on the trees.  But in Tennessee the flowers last. Our Azaleas bloom twice a year.  They’re still blooming in the middle of November.  They look a little worse for wear…

Things are changing

Things are changing

Today I want to introduce you to our latest online store, at Artyah.com.  Right now I’m not quite sure I know how it works.  It looks like a Marketplace more than a store.  It’s new and I’ll have to learn it.  But I’ll be posting the new things we find weekly at yard sales or estate sales.  We still have our Etsy stores; junkblossoms.com                                …

I Love Vintage Hats!

I Love Vintage Hats!

I grew up in the fifties.  We wore hats.  We wore them to weddings with our dress gloves.  We wore them to church.  And then something happened and I got away from wearing hats. I thought they didn’t look good on me.  I felt silly wearing a hat.  Then I found vintage hats.  And I started losing my hair due to medications.  Hats became my friend.  I tried them on, but I didn’t wear them out.  Then I realized lots…

Weekend Treasure Hunting

Weekend Treasure Hunting

I’m waiting right now for Ron to get home from his breakfast with the guys so we can go to this awesome Estate Sale I found on Estatesales.net.  They are the place to go to find great sales.  This one is a ways away from our house, but that’s okay.  I love finding new things to list in our Etsy stores.  Last week we found a wonderful sale.  It was so good, we visited it twice.   Here’s some of…

Junkblossoms Is Back! I’m So Excited!

Junkblossoms Is Back! I’m So Excited!

So much time has passed since my last blog post.  Our lives changed and new things took our time.  If you remember junkblossoms was all about repurposing our junking finds.  We kind of got burnt out.  We no longer had the room to work or the ideas to bring to life.   Our creative minds went blank.  We were also getting older.  We had to make some decisions that fit our health and age.  Do you remember that we had…
