i go by vintagecowgirlone because i love the images of the old cowgirls....my heart is a "junker" though....i was raised with antiques all around and we used them in our daily lives....one of my most cherished antiques is an old washboard that my great grandmother had written May 1919 on the back of....i am also very lucky to have my grandfathers teddy bear from when he was a child....i have always believed in taking old things and making them new again.... i'm always looking for a bargain or some free junk on the side of the road...
