This photo of our front porch consists of the lovely pillow I purchased at Oronoco for myself.  It is the most beautiful muted shades and down filled to boot.  Jane of Mustard Moon had this beauty.  It really makes a great comfort addition for a mere $10 on this adirondak chair.
I love this Big Ben clock.  My family isnt going to get it, but I love it.  It was thrown in a pile of junk and when I rescued it the price was a mere $3.  Score!
This wonderful  patinaed tin was the favorite pick of the stacks in a booth we all loved.  $10 each was a price that is hard to beat.
Now this guy got his photo op because I found it to be quite unusual and photo worthy.  Im a farm girl so it caught my eye, not that Im fond of it or anything.  Just thought it was unique and odd.
Farmers daughter kisses the cow.  lol  This life size cow was at a booth that Sue and Lani spent a bit of time at while snapping up some very old, rare and unusual brass tokens.  At least they saved 1 for me to design jewelry with.  ha! 
Sue may have shown this in an earlier post, but it was one of my favorite things I saw that was created out of found junk at this show.  Quite a creative guy that hosts this booth.  He also is the junker that created my tin, this table and his booth is shown in two other photos as well in this post.
sue and I were being goofy during this photo op.  Junkers sure do have great sense of humors.  We all hands down loved this booth.  It was unique, colorful and filled with wonderful treasures.
Kathy one of our contributors on this site created this out of a lamp base and ceiling fixture and brought it with her all the way from Ohio to serve her food in at the blogger party.  This was very cool!
Loved this booth filled with tins and cool repurposed junk into fabulous tables.  Very cool stuff.
Beca, Lanis daughter waiting for us.  This is in the tin booth, and note this very cool table as well as in the background the cool silver clock.  Hmmm, is this Sues military clock?
Lani and Kathy trying to figure out which leaded or stained glass windows Lani should buy.  She decided on two lead glass windows.
Back to the colorful wheel with numbers.  We all loved it and took lots of fun photos by it.  It was already sold, but a fun photo prop nonetheless.

This has been lost in cyberspace for a few weeks, so just now posting it under projects.  Sorry about the delay, but wanted to share my non-jewelry items I found.

The photos are a mix of items that could be seen at the last week-ends Oronoco, Minnesota flea market that Sue, some of her contributors, members from this site, bloggers, and junkers united for a fun time by all.  It was a blast to say the least, I for one, will be back.  Hopefully, a bit better prepared next time and with a game plan.  I was seriously clueless where to begin. 

Being that I'm a junk jewelry designer, most of my target areas were different than the rest of the group I was with.  Kathy was an awesome help and found great things for me to purchase while we purveyed a huge pile of jewelry to purchase.  Lucky for me, the competition amongst this group was minimal for my goods.  I came home with 1/2 a small suitcase filled with wonderful treasures to design with.  Stay tuned for a seperate post on that.
