Junk Yard Junkin

I finally got the opportunity to visit a an actual junk yard!
 Do you even realize how flippin excited I was??!!
So I just have to share my adventure with you!

The day started a raining and yuck. My friend called and asked if I still wanted to go.....Well hell yes I want to go! I'm gonna bust out my Junk Gypsy hat, work gloves, and rain boots and let's do this!!
When we arrived, the man that owned the place was kinda leery about 2 chicks rummaging through piles of crap. He explained that we were on our own and DON'T GET HURT! LOL We may look like girly girls, but little did he know we were ready to get down in dirty in some junk! After watching over us for a bit, he realized oh yeah these chicks know what they are doin! We were just diggin and diggin in the sloppy muddy mess pulling out treasure after treasure. 
Pure Junk Lovin Heaven!
As you can see in the pictures, we had a little fun! we had a blast! After over 3 hours we had to call it a day, even though we sure didn't want to. It is amazing the little things that bring ya back in time. 
Look at this rusty beauty! How I wish I had a big yard to have him in.

Here are the treasures I came home with!

Signs and license plates..I have a obsession! I LOVE them!!

Junk Yard Part II
It wasn't gonna be long before I ventured to that junk yard again. Well actually, 3 days...HeeHee!

It was our junkin friend Betty MJ's birthday! And all she wanted to do was of course go junkin! She thought we were just gonna hit the yard sale circuit...Ha No way Jose! I called her and said "Pack your boots I'm on my way!"
She was in heaven! Just look at all the treasures she found?!!
This week, projects were already under way with some of these cool finds!! I can't wait to show you what I did!

Here's to Happy Junkin!
