I was recently thinking how interesting life can be.................for years I was embarassed about my love
of junk and crafting and there were not many people in my life that "got me"!!!!! I will always be
thankful to my parents and grandmothers for nurturing my love of old things, as well as my love of crafting. In all honesty, I spent many weekends knitting and crocheting with my grandmas and sorting through their treasures when I was a teenager, rather than persuing an active social life like many of my friends!
For the last two years I have been a contributor on the junkmarketstyle site which
was created by the amazing Sue Whitney, author, enterpreneur and junk master!!!! The JMS site has
brought an amazing number of new friends into my life who inspire and motivate me daily. I will be travelling to Minnesota this spring to meet (for the first time) many of these wonderful friends. I am excited beyond words.......!!!! The only problem with my junkmarket friends
is that they live just a little tooooo far away! How I have longed for some junking friends in my own city!
Well, how excited am I to recently meet not one, but two new junking friends who actually live near me!!!!!
I spent a day last week thrifting with my new friend Tracey of raggygirlvintage who has just started up her blog, and I will be at long last meeting my friend Pamela of ladypamelascottage this Friday!!!
. Please visit Tracey and Pamela when you have a chance.
