Mt Favourite little one stop junkin shop. Buried under so much snow. Usually the outdoor yards are FULL of amazing pieces to use. Im sure if I brought a shovel, it may be possible to find something lol.
That little piece of beauty really triggers my curiosity as to what is hiding under there. However, its almost impossible to see with those thick vines wrapped around it. Patience.
THERE she is! Winter has its benefits after all! Judging by the sinking roof from the snow and winds, I dont think I am going to be seeing her standing there much longer. Such a shame!

Well, here we are, a true Canadian winter. We haven't had one of these in a while.  Sadly, I'm stuck in an "I can't get anything done" rut. Our shed housing all of my wood is buried under 3 feet of a mixture of ice and snow and my fav junking places seem to be the same lol. So, here I sit idly, watching everyones posts and gaining inspiration on things I can do the second I can get my shed doors open!!!!!! On another note - with the winter brings new light to things you don't normally see in the summer! I posted two pictures up of a house. The one is the summer version. I drive past that all the time and see the vines covering a piece of architectural beauty and history and wonder what is under all those vines, and then the winter rolls in and VOILA! There she is! Holding so much history and I am sure treasures. However upon slightly closer inspection, I noticed it is being held up by a simple tiny sapling at the back. So, unfortuntately until it falls, we will simply have to view it from afar. * siiiiiiiiigh* What is a girl to do? I think I might try my hands at some small funky makeovers from little re-use shops. At least that will keep my hands busy right?

texasjunkermom writes: What beautiful pics you take of interesting things. We have snowy weather in Texas today, but nothing like your showy kind. Yes, the old (usually)vine-covered shed is interesting and makes you wonder what treasures you could find. But (and here comes my rant), make sure you have permission before you do. OUR seemingly deserted farmstead was raided because it did look deserted, but wasn't--we can only go so seldom. So many treasures lost. I know you are more responsible than that, and can't wait to see your newest posts, when you thaw out!! T in Texas Posted: 8:57 am on February 6th

Jasmin didn't want to have this post featured...but it cracked me up! I'm sure all of us junkers are feeling a little of this pain right now. UNBELIEVABLE winter. No worries my friends...spring is right around the corner and we'll be scouring again! Thanks for sharing this Jasmin....made me smile. We're all in this together!

Stay Warm,
