small town, UT, US

my favorite thing to do is find a treasure in the unlikeliest of places. give me a dark, dank shed full of stuff and i'm in heaven! we own a 1969 rambler and my goal is to turn it into something full of character and junktiques play a big role in that. did i mention we also don't spend a ton of money on things? it's because we like to think of what that rusty old something or another we've found will be able to do in our home with a little bit of tweaking.
we also have a couple of acres that we have totally redone, mostly with found goods. we host an annual show here in september where we bring in handmade artists and antiques for a truly fantastic day! you can find me blogging about junkin treasures and all the things of life at madysunshine.blogspot.com or on my website at madysunshine.com! come on over for a visit...
