This what we saw upon our arrival. Theres nothing quite like a beautiful barn to whet a junkers whistle.
Inside the barn the fun begins.
Outside we found bounty that only nature can provide. Im seeing a bright future for these stumps.
There was more junk to be uncovered inside tis quaint little cabin.
A shed sheds some light on more junk.
Our delightful host for the day shared some fond memories as we uncovered some goodies. She recalled using this enamel pan for a baby bath. Later, she retracted the statement realizing that a 10 pound baby could never have fit in a pan that size. Ah hahaha!
More barn goodies...not for the faint of heart though. Barns are a haven for little birds and other creatures who enjoy leaving there sometimes not so little droppings behind. A junkers job can include dirty duties.
Did I say there was also a cottage to go along with the barn, cabin, shed, and garage? Cool huh? A side note...Kelly (in pink) opted for jelly sandals adorned with rhinestones for this excursion. I think next time shell go for the boots!
Built-in beauties!
Not sure about this contraption. Looks a little like a torture tool.
We uncovered tools of a profession other than farming.
Ah hahahahaha! Im a strange duck!

I received an email from a family member the other day with a lead on a possible hunting ground. Afterall, what are families for? Te He! I had no idea what was in store for me, so keeping in mind that junking is a team sport I grabbed a few friends and headed off to see what we could see. Road trip!!! Well what we found was intriguing to say the least. Here is a sneak peek at where we went and what we found. Stay tuned as the saga unfolds...this could be fun! After a fun day of junking what do junkers do? Apparently, thanks to my junking buddies, we unwind lakeside with a nice bottle of wine, a loaf of French bread and some hummus. What are friends for? Thanks Jim, Kelly, and Molly for a fun filled day!

MossyLady writes: Oh man, I am so jealous! We don't have great barns like that in Florida. I am also taking note of the sweaters being worn. The heat index today is 102. Looks like you had a barrel of fun though. Go for it! Posted: 3:51 pm on June 12th
