We had a great time, found some great junk and made some awesome new friends. On Friday we made a little stop at sweet Kimberly's adorable home. Here we are hamming it up with WSU Laura's "sorority pose."Loved all the sweet old outbuildings on Kim's property. So much great potential for a studio/junk storage/guest cottage. Love it!
We arrived at Timi's house just in time for dinner and a junk swap party with some of Timi's friends. We met Dani, Jana, Trish, Amber, Mary, Ann, Jennifer, Annie and . Everyone was so sweet and welcoming. Lots of great food (the crab sandwiches were delish!), laughs and junk swapping. What could be better?
Love, love, love the pink chairs on her balcony and if you look real close, you can see Charlie poking his little head through the railing.
My favorite room in Timi's house. This is where the junk swap party was held.Saturday Timi, Isabel and I hit the road for some garage sale good times. We all found lots of good junk and we could have kept going, but we were running out of time and the truck was filling up fast. Here is a shot of the back of my van after we loaded all of our great junk into it.
Saturday evening we headed to downtown Snohomish where the blog party was being held. It was being hosted by Annie and several other stores participated by being open late and offering yummy snacks, beverages and special store discounts. I was the lucky winner of the blog badge contest and got to pick $75.00 worth of merchandise from Annie's! I could hardly believe it! I could have spent hours trying to decide what to get as she had so many amazing things in her store, but I narrowed it down to an adorable silverware ring (which hasn't left my hand since I got it) and a equally adorable vintage medicine cabinet. It was a great evening!
Jana and her Mom, Claris of Joy Works. A lovely shop that's been in business 30 years!
Fun and cute bloggers, Trish and Amber
Loved this mermaid display in the window at Joyworks.

Monday morning we packed up the car and headed East this time to Boise, Idaho to visit my husband's brother and his wife. It has been three years since we visited them in Boise and it was fun to visit again. We did the Boise river float one day and while my hubby was fishing with his brother the next day, the kids and I hit some thrift stores and a mall. One cool thing that happened while we were there was going to a restaurant that we had enjoyed the last time we were there and finding out that they were filming an episode of "Man Vs. Food" for the travel Channel so we got to see this guy and cheer him on while he plowed through a massive amount of food in 30 minutes.
This weekend Isabel and I went up to see our friends at the Barn House/Willow Nest sale in Battleground, WA. I took one picture while we were there, but you can see all the lovely pictures Isabel took here.
