junkin' time...

On opening weekend at the campground I put a little junkin' time in with the girls.
I found some great stuff for the shop but ended up keeping this old clock face for myself...


I love the contrast it brings to my shelf in the den...


The best part of the day was watching my bff Lisa, whose house burnt down on Christmas Eve, finally start to buy some treasures for her new house!!
The old house is slated to be torn down very soon with new construction to follow!
It was wonderful to see her smiling and finally allowing herself to get excited after such a terrible tragedy.
She has had a few other wrenches thrown her way lately too ~ when it rains, it does pour.
I would love it if you could send a few prayers her way.
Again, her strength amazes me and makes me want to be a better person.
Love you gf.

I am joining the lovely ladies over at Ivy and Elephants today for What's It Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting...have a nice day!
