My Junk Swap Junk....Not really!April 9th, 2010 in blog
Well...I gotta say Texas junkers are SO generous, and my partner, RustyDiva, was no exception. It was so much fun getting to know her, and I'm hoping that one of these days we'll meet and do some junking together (a trip to Texas is on my list!)! However...we have a few (actually a lot) of the same "likes" in junk - we'll just have to share, right, K??
And, about Texas...I'm learning (she sent me a book about her great state) - she really thought of everything! (and I mean that in a VERY good way)
Anyway, back to the big day. She had told me that it was really hard for her to stop collecting goodies for me (I totally understand!), and she ended up sending two boxes... When I went to the post office the woman brought up the first box, and there were strange, rattlly noises as she carried it, and she warned me that "that didn't sound good", (ha ha - I knew there was nothing to worry about, and told her it was just a box of junk - she laughed, and I said, "No, really...it is a box of junk!" and told her about our little junk swap. I think she was jealous! :) So, I went on my way and couldn't wait to get home.
The pictures tell the story - hope you enjoy all the great "junk" Kenda sent to me - I am!!!
Kenda - thanks so much for all the great JUNK you sent...receiving junk/stuff that was picked out by someone else is huge fun - a surprise, a challenge, and so welcome - you did good, girlfriend!! And, hey - I finally finished my first project last night (bottle caps...) - posting later... And, I've got a few more ideas "rattling" around in my head...
