Have a Happy Cheerful Friday and Weekend

Have a Happy Cheerful Friday Everyone!

Hi there, and Welcome to Thrift Store Junkies! Glad to have you dropping by here.

So many things have happened since I was last here, and much of it has been with family. Things are finally calming that a person can come up to breathe a bit too. 

I cannot wait till we are rid of all the snow, and spring is officially here! It's coming, it has been warming a bit, still not fully here, and am patiently waiting. Once spring hits I have Thrifting fever big time, start watching paper for different sales, and it is sooo much more enjoyable to drive to different towns & places to go digging for things too. Soon I will be making sure the care is all cleaned out, and everything is out of the way to give me room to put things there found. 

So, what do you like to thrift for? I enjoy finding vintage collectibles, home decor, items once loved to use with repurposing and upcycling, and just a little bit of this n' that too. Do a little treasure hunting, open windows, get out the glues, mod podge, open the garage door to do some painting, etc. I sure wish it was pleasant weather all year long to do this, but I guess I would have to move to enjoy that too. 

Well everyone it was great seeing you all again! If you feel like roaming a bit make sure to visit some of my other pages with my Blog too. The main page is LilacsNDreams which you can visit from clicking here, or using one of the tabs at the top here too. 

Thanks for visiting with Thrift Store Junkies. Don't be a stranger, and stop back to visit again soon. I wish you all well with all of your thrifting adventures. Take care, and see you again soon. Toodles! . . . . .

Its Friday and Weekend Here We Come

It's Friday, and Weekend Here We Come!

Wow! Where does the time go to, right? It's too cold out to do much of any kind of junking really. Mostly thrift stores right now, and even then their inventory kind of slows down. Sometimes it starts to all look alike too. Waiting more for spring when things are fresh again, and the pickings are great!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, and the new year has started off well for you. Christmas this year will be one I will not forget, and the new year started off with a bang as well. Very long story that involves my Dad, hospitals, his health, and now into hospice care. 

Well everyone I wish you all well, have a beautiful weekend, keep on thrifting, and hope to see ya'll again real soon. If you would like to follow me more, or keep up with me a bit more make sure to click those tabs at the top there. That Home one will take you to the main page, and you can take it from there as well. 

Thanks for sharing your time with Thrift Store Junkies, and hope to see ya'll again soon. Till the next time my thrifting friend....Toodles!

Welcome Fellow Thrifters and Treasure Hunters

Welcome to Thrift Store Junkies all you fellow treasure hunters! Glad to have you stopping by to visit with Me!

What is the weather like in your area? Here is it cold, had just a light drop of snow, and this weekend sounds like maybe it could be nasty. Urgh! I sooo wish I lived some where warmer so that I could get out more to do some thrifting, and finding things. I have been putting a few more pieces together at home with what I have here in my "stash" Soon I would like to also get some other things to work on as well. Plus, I enjoy the fun of thrifting, and searching for pieces too. 

Christmas will soon be here. Is everyone ready for it? I did the decorations outside, and inside our home by myself this year. I just took my time doing it, and got it done. Not completely where I wanted it to be, but it is definitely better than what I had done last year which was nothing. So, anything is better than nothing right?

Next week family will start coming home for the holidays, and we are going to celebrate christmas about 2 days earlier to help accommodate with all of the schedules for everyone. Our son is off to army basic training, and I will pick him up at the airport on Thursday. On Friday our daughter, and our grand baby will be leaving TX to come home for just a few days. My husband's sister will be here with her fiance along with my sister, and her family too. 

I have a mess in the house! I keep going through things, laying things out, boxing things up to donate, creating some pieces, clean my messes up, and then it happens again!...LOL:) Along with the messes I am working on making more room for everyone that will be here as well. So, much to do, and this weekend I have plans to get more of it done. My time is also starting to get shorter before everyone is here, and I need to get with it, and get her done!:)

Hope this finds all of you doing well, being able to do some for the Christmas season, and of course having fun with it too. Ya'll take care, and come back to visit again soon. Toodles.......

Happy Veterans Day to All Who Served, and Are Serving

Happy Veterans Day to All Who Served, and Are Serving!

Welcome to Thrift Store Junkies everyone! I have a little bit of time this weekend, and thought I would stop by here to say Happy Veterans Day to everyone. This is a day to remember those who served, and are still serving for our country, for our freedoms. If you happen to see a Veteran make sure to say Hi to them, and telling them Thank You would mean sooo much too! Seeing their face after this would be so satisfying. 

Hope ya'll have had a wonderful thrifting day. Thanks for visiting with Thrift Store Junkies, and  . . . .

                              HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!

Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween To Everyone

Trick or Treat, and Happy Halloween to everyone in Blogland and who visits!

Thanks for stopping into Thrift Store Junkies page at LilacsNDreams. Where does the time go, and why does it go so fast sometimes too. The weather has changed, gotten cooler out, had rain, and of course unfortunately thrift shopping has slowed for me too. Time of year to get ready for holidays, and festivities. Putting the house back in order since we are not moving quite yet. Also, spending a little bit of time working with things I have at the house to repurpose, and upcycle too.

To see some of the items I have been doing you can visit my shop at Etsy for those items, and I also have been listing things at Ecrater too. Repurposed, upcycled, and some vintage collectibles too.

Hope that this finds everyone doing well, and ready for Halloween. Thinking of those on the east coast, and wishing them all well too. Hopefully things are ok for them over there who were all effected with hurricane Sandy.

Thanks for sharing your time with Thrift Store Junkies page at LilacsNDreams everyone. Take care, and see you again soon.

Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, Flea Markets, and Junking

Thrift Stores, Yard Sales, Flea Markets, and Junking too! No matter what season we are into there is always some digging to be done, right?

Hello, and Welcome Back to Thrift Store Junkies everyone. Glad to have you stopping by to visit. You know, I sometimes dread fall. I so enjoy summers, and warmer weather so that I can do more thrifting, and junking. I enjoy having the warmer weather to create in, and being able to paint a lil more too. Sometimes when fall comes I get a lil bit dreary with it. I know I should feel good about it as many do, and many have those creative juices flowing again too. But, I just cannot feel alive with it as I can spring, and summer time. Oh, well, such is life, right?

So, what has everyone been up to? My schedules have been way off for quite some time now. Dealing with our car hubby got me last year, the service techs, the service manager, and now with GM. Finally someone believes me there is something wrong, and I have some mechanics who are having issues finding the problem they are hearing too. 

Hubby is back home, and has changed our plans of moving. I was looking forward to heading south, but he is in love with the house again from remodeling that has been done. So, when the hubs is home my schedule is way off again too. 

Things shall soon calm that I can work on my listings again, putting some things together, and then finding a way that I can still paint some small projects for during the winter months too. The house will calm, and I can then work on my long over due scrapbooking as well too. Table is set up in the spare room for this, scrapbook papers are there in reach, containers with embellishments need to be better organized, but that is also coming together as well. 

So, what have you been up to lately yourselves? Any Thrifting, or Junking? Would love to hear from you, and have you share a little bit with all of us too. Please know that you can.

Hey, thanks again for sharing your time with Thrift Store Junkies. Always glad to have you drop in, and make sure you say Hi so that I can come visit with you too. Take care, and see you again soon! Toodles..........
