A little road trip, some fun finds and completed projects

When I found out my husband and the kids were going to a concert in Seattle the same weekend as a couple antique shows I’ve been wanting to go to, it wasn’t too difficult a decision to tag along. While they were at their concert Friday, I drove up to Snohomish, met my dear friend Kimberly and headed over to the 2nd Saturdayz set up day. Linda had a drawing and picked a few people to come do early shopping, and I was one of the lucky winners.

It was fun to get first dibs at some good stuff, not to mention, getting some one on one time with my sweet friend. I was also lucky enough to get to hang out another BFF, Timi and her adorable husband, Jay or PJ as his is affectionately known.

On Saturday, I ditched my family once again, and made the trip to Puyallup to the Funky Junk Sisters sale. So glad I did as I found lots of great things and got to see some of my favorite homies like Amy, Amy, Pam, Amy, Christa, and of course, the Funky Junk Sisters themselves.

Here’s a picture of my weekend loot.019

The cool mirror, green glass lamp and jar of wood casters all came from Ruffles & Rust Square. The rest of the goodies came from Funky Junk Sisters.021

Love this little German Lucite clock with dried flowers embedded in it. So much cuter in person.


Love the little wicker basket, tole painted tissue holder, filigree butterfly, and floral pins, misc. bling and buttons. The pretty millinery rose was a gifty from Pam.

I also scored a cute little four drawer cabinet and a rolling laundry cart at 2nd Saturdays, but I didn’t get a picture of those just yet.

Saturday night we headed to the Waterfront of Seattle to do a little site seeing and meet some friends for dinner at The Crab Pot.


Here we are in front of the Pike Street Market.


And my adorable daughter in front of the wall of gum.


Adding her contribution.


Getting ready to eat.


A little blurry, but yum!

We had such a wonderful and fun weekend doing what we all love doing. Concert and music museum for hubby and kids, junking for me, hanging with friends and each other and eating some really good food. Couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.

Going to end this post with a few of my complete projects.


Pair of vintage bed side tables/cabinets and a cool trunk.


Child sized hutch


Cool old, refurbished desk.

That’s it for me now. I’m off to work on some more projects. Hope you have a great Monday and fabulous week!

I try not to envy your girls who live up around Washington. And those near Kansas and Texas. Y'all have such great flea market and shows to go to! We have nothing in Alabama. Nothing. You really found some fun things! Love your finished projects, too.
