Christmas Tour 2013

Good day to you. I hope you're having a good morning and staying warm
It's a toasty 80* here in Florida. It's hard to believe that Christmas is 2 weeks from today

I thought I would share with you some of the Christmas here at our house ...
I'm calling this year's decor Nature Meets Industrial "Found Junk"

And because money this year was REALLY tight for us, the only things I bought were
the tree, 2 poinsettias, 3 apples, a bag of cranberries and a can of snow

So enjoy ...

Visiting a Junker's Nirvana

I have always been a collector of stories. I use to ask my grandparents to tell me about their lives.
In fact, when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, I asked my Grams to come and just tell me stories as a gift. I spent 6 hours that day hearing about her amazing life. Even though I had heard her stories a million times, now that she's gone I would give anything to hear them again. I guess that's why when I met Archie, a 84yr old man whom I met at a garage sale, meant so much to me. His stories of his life and the people he has met touched me as much as his love for junk.

When I first met Archie, a couple months ago, I was FLOORED with just how junk much he had. 
He had built a garage off his house big enough to hold his HUGE RV but it was FILLED with banana boxes of goodies. You should see the storage box he has promised to me. I can't wait to add it to my studio. While we were talking that day, he had mentioned how he would love to share his patio with me. That it was filled with some AWESOME junk and each piece had a story. This past Saturday he invited me up to his house - he had a light that he wanted me to have and he wanted to share his patio with me. Boy did I walk into a Junker's Nirvana ...

Beware - this is a photo heavy post
Now, I'm gonna shut up and tell ya ...

Let the Drooling Begin
