roadtrip !

loading up for our first
roadtrip of the year !!

heading up north to
hamburg new york

we are vending at
at the
agri center in hamburg
near buffalo

this is my first time with
these promoters,
but i've heard great things about them
so i'm looking foward to it

normally i dont do indoor shows,
i much prefer pulling my truck up to
my spot and unloading...

so not into the dollying deal, it a shot..

i figured it would be a great excuse
for a roadtrip..
take one route up and a
different one back

stop in small towns

look for antique shops

brush the snow off the truck

oh wait...that wasnt supposed to be part
of the deal....
how did that happen???

oh well...we got what we got...
no springtime weather here....
but really SNOW ????

but off we go....

will keep you posted

still working on the sort....
more of my favs that are coming with me on the move

1) old scale..just love the color on the dial

2) sheep picture in an old old flea market frame//leather !

3)cutest little rocker - flea find
bought it to go with......

4) my paps it !

five friday favs....and a new junkmobile....

friday again..........gees..time goes fast..

well..this favorite thing is...

drum roll please.....

a new junkmobile !!

i love - love - love my new truck

i had no intention of getting a new truck,
my son and i just went to check these out...

i never thought they would get me good enough numbers...

but....they did !! 
and i went home with this baby !

so...this week..i'm going to tell you my five friday favs about my new truck !!

* * *

1) the chrome........whoo know i love the shiny for your vehicle...

(please pay no attention to the reflection
in the mirror back...duh)

* * *

2) the flip down flat passenger seat..
made to be a desk for your laptop....
or just a flat surface to write on...

 * * *

3) came with an on dash GPS..
will keep me from getting lost
on those road trips !!

* * *

4) totally awesome built in rack with hooks to tie down to..
and a painted on bed liner...

(this is the off road model ... so it comes with this to tie down your quad or motorcycle...)

but..haha..for me it will be holding down
my tent, tables, tubs....whooohooo !

and last but definately not least....

(website pics....easier to show)

5)the ultimate in trucking !
a fold out rack to make the bed longer...

* * *

i wanted a smaller truck
(mine was a bear to park)..
but i needed the longer bed to fit my tent..

this can go either way..
it also serves to hold in smaller items in the bed...

so cool...i just love it !!

lightwweight enough for even me to flip it..
or lift it out if i dont want it at all...

* * *

so that's it for this week....

happy trails.....

for getting rid of my stuff..
(insert laughter here)

i realized that i have a lot of stuff that i actually do love

whatever strikes you..

for my starting week..i am giving it a little
early bump to piggy back on faded charm's

i'm starting with all white to stay with her theme...
but you can hook up any five things you 'love'
i love my french doors...cant take them, but i already
installed new ones at the farmette

1. this wreath
found this at after holiday sale at big lots
dirt cheap and i love the look

2. my olde crow painting

i loved the door itself...but then i added
the olde crow and if i do say so myself..
i love him..

he's coming with me for sure...

3. very old skinny cupboard

bought this at an auction for $5
chippy chippy just the way i like it

fits's been all over my house

for sure will find a place for it

4. little silhouette

it hangs on the side of #3....along with an old yardstick

found in at the flea for a buck...

cant beat that and i love her

5. coffee dyed rag wreath

made it myself...discovered it is way too
time consuming to be something i would want to do and sell

but i like will stay...
