Fall Friday......

 is here! After a very long and record breaking HOT summer in Texas, fall arrived this morning, and I am just "Happy...Happy...Happy" about it! My ac is off, and the windows are open! Now, on to other "junkin" news.......we have been junkin...creating...painting...and blinging all month now getting ready for our up coming Canton weekend, as this kicks off our busy shopping season! We are soooo ready and look forward to seeing our friends who only come out in the fall and spring to do their Canton shopping!!! Hope your making that list, and have your walking shoes ready, as there is ALWAYS so much to see and shop for this time of the year!!! Also, wanted to say if you don't follow us on FaceBook, please do as we post pics and comment about what we have going on at least every other day!!! I have found that for me, it is just quicker and easier to keep it updated about our business......I LOVE all of the beautiful blogs out there and have soooooo many that I follow, but, find it can consume sooooooo much of my "junkin'' time for our business and once I start checking out and commenting on one blog, I find myself { like right now } not getting dressed before noon, much less getting anything else done!!! lOL! BUT, we do luv and appreciate all of you who do follow our blog!!! Soooooo, on that note, guess I better get off the computer and get dressed, make the bed, and get all the other things done that are on my list today!!! Oh....and just in case we have not mentioned it lately.....

We APPRECIATE all of your support!!!

Junkin Treasures.............

Thought I should update our blog as we have not been very good at doing that lately!!! Oooh the BUSY LIFE of a Girl Gone Junkin! LOL! First and formost, we have been receiving rain for over an hour here in the DFW know that stuff that falls from the sky and looks like little drops of water!!! In fact, I just had to pop the cork on a bottle of wine and have a toast...and might just need to toast one more time as we have needed rain for sooooooo long!!!

Yesterday and today, while Deidra has been working on her jewelry creations, I have been hitting the junkin trail "Hard an Heavy" getting ready for our first fall Canton weekend!!! I have really hit the "jack pot" at some of the sales and thrift stores I have found.......some great vintage clothing items, one of which is this awesome, sweet pink "tutu"!!! What is it about ballet slippers and tutu's......I just LOVE them!!!! In fact, I still have my first pair of ballet shoes, and my tap shoes of when I was a little tutus though! Then today, hubby and I went to this awesome Estate sale near our home.....found sooooo many treasures.....lamps, furniture items...a couple of little sweet iron stone pitchers....great old bucket...and then some awesome books....some from the late 1800's!! In fact, at the this sale they had over 15000 books!!! YES..that is fifteen thousand! I have never seen anything like it! It actually filled up a huge barn! The woman who had lived there, had at one time owned a book store in Calif. and when she came to Texas brought all of the books with her......15 trucks full!!!! I would have loved to stay there and go through every box, but had more sales to get to! I will be busy all weekend pricing and packing up all of my goodies as they will all be going to Canton in a couple of weeks!! Hope you are planning your fall shopping trip and coming out to see us as our booth will be "Running Over" with Treasures!!!

Happy Junkin!

Hugs an Junkin Luv......Cathy

Bible Bling........

Hope you are all having a great day, and starting your week off with a "Bang"!!! Have you ever had an extra Bible that you were just not sure where to keep it??? Well....I love to find old Bibles at Estate Sales and embellish the cover with lace, jewels and just anything else that I have for embellishing! We all have our Bible for reading or perhaps it was given to us for a special fact, I love to collect old little Sunday School Bibles as they are just sweet and have a special meaning to someone at some time in their childhood! But, if you have an extra one, why not cover it with some special treasures and display it on a coffee table or give it as a special gift! HUGS AN JUNKIN LUV.........Cathy aka GGJ

Today is a day to reflect on the events that happened 10 yrs. ago today......It is one of those days that we will never forget, who we were with, where we were and how we found out of the horror that changed our country forever!!! I fly my flag today with such pride, and in honor of all those lives that were lost that day, but most of all to show how proud I am to be an American and also how Thankful I am to those who stand up and fight for our FREEDOM everyday!!!
