OK... this is funny! Cracks me up as a matter of fact. This sign calls the project you are about to see home.
Before you see the project a little junkstoposition for your enjoyment. You just saw the Wild Women on Wine sign, right? Here we all are at the Root Prairie Church luncheon. Not so wild after all. But we like to think so! Clue number one.
And here is the cool project. The Pfarkels like to focus on their roots....farm junk! This project is right up their corn field. A wall unit wine holder made from mystery farm pieces and a set of 2 x 4s.  A re-purpose with a purpose. The best kind of projects.
A stack of five holds plenty of wine for a well stocked kitchen.
Here it is semi-empty to give you an idea of the before.
The farm metal objects are scooped and just the right size for wine bottles. Can you say ideal?
The scoops are bolted to the wood and the wood united with the wall. A Match made in heaven.
A handcrafted wine sign ala Miss Marge completes the look of this ab fab wine holder. Nice work, Marge!!
Sharon and Diane are wild about the wine wall unit!
I know this is a bit unexpected, but what can I say? Lani dropped the camera  and this was the end result. Girls and girdles. Vintage, never been warn onsies were brought to the party. This is Diane and me in a fashion forward moment. The girl in between is a vintage girdle making form soon to become a reading lamp. Does that surprise anyone? Hint number 2.
An old church in a corn field. Hint number 3.
OK... this is funny! Cracks me up as a matter of fact. This sign calls the project you are about to see home.

Yeppers... a beautiful weekend with sisters of junk. Just what the Dr. ordered! Me, Lanette, Bekah, Marge Utley, Sophie, and the famous Pfarkel siters joined together for a weekend of fun and frolic at Sharon's farm in the Root Prairie of Southern Minnesota. A good time was had by all! I noticed while I was there that there were an awful lot of wonderful projects that have never been shared by the Pfarkels on JMS. I took some images and hope that you will all encourage them to post more often on the site. I think we can call their posts the Pfarkel Chronicles. I can assure you there is no lack of entertaining material when it comes to these ladies!

While we were there we were on a planning mission. One...that I am not going to reveal at this time. I will however, give you a few clues in this post. See if you can guess what the planning is all about.

Thanks Pfarkels and Marge. As always....you ladies were a delight and a joy to be with!

Love ya...Sue

 Lani...you're OK too!!  Ah,hahahahaha!

gottaluvjunk writes: Humm, clue one and three seem to indicate church related finds. Although the girdles throw me off. But then when you consider "proper" dressing for church, I'm sure the pews have had many a girdle sit on them. LOL Posted: 7:34 am on October 19th

EmmasNookandGranny writes: Girdles? Seriously, girdles???? Looks like I left a little too soon!! A weekend just wasn't long enough, but was oh so much fun. Just think of the trouble we could have gotten into if we'd had more time. Sue, Lani and Becca, come back soon. And stay a week!! Hugs, Marge Posted: 7:08 pm on October 17th
georgiamoon writes: Sue, sounds like a good time was had by all. I love the wine holder, it is fantastic. i don't get the clues though...am I supposed to? Maybe I need a few more...or maybe I just need to be on the same wave length. I'll drink some wine and think about it. Georgia Posted: 6:59 pm on October 17th
blueotter writes: I grew up on a farm, and the units look like the paddles of a grain or baled hay elevator. We had a long, skinny elevator with such paddles, but the paddles were only as big as my 5-year-old backside. I'm sure there were elevators that came in all sizes Posted: 2:21 pm on October 17th
Fjerda writes: The Pfakel Sisters had a great weekend tooooo.... It is always fun to have the three of you arrive at our door!! We could have had more fun if only the wind would have gone down and we could have sat around the bonfire but that was the only thing that we didn't do.
My mind is really going with all the planning ideas and I have started on a couple of things to share with Sue and a few for JMS.
Have a great fall everyone.

suewhitney writes: Ahhhhh, hahaha! We are always well behaved.I have to say that the Pfarkel farm is a little slice of paradise. Good food, great company,delightful conversation, true friends, a little wine....and junk galore. I can not tell you haw much of the good stuff you can find around every corner of this property. It is indeed a treasure chest in so many ways.

Be Well,
