I'm hosting a give-away and the winner will be picked upon my return next week. The October issue of Romantic Homes Magazine and several other goodies will be sent to one of you lucky gals - please just leave a comment before September 18.

I'm packing my bags (packing lightly so that I have room for many treasures) and heading East to the Junk Bonanza! I'll be visiting my sister in Minneapolis, MN to celebrate my niece's 2nd birthday and my nephew's 4th birthday - the dates coincide with the Junk Bonanza! Can't wait to see those kids!

Ki is a true junker and my sister and I have been fortunate to visit the Junk Market on many occasions and I have also visited her book signing during a tour at the Rose Bowl Flea Market a few years ago. Ki is pulling out all the stops for this event with over 100 amazing vendors. There will also be a Book Signing by Country Home style editor and celebrity author Matthew Mead. The girls will be shopping til we drop as they say - mom, sister and I!He'll be signing his new books Entertaining Simple and Matthew Mead’s Halloween Tricks and Treats. He is amazing!

Also, the Red Shed ladies will be there - hoping to run into them somehow!

Thanks for leaving a comment about the art/collage class at the Red Shed. It was Jeanne and my first attempt at teaching! yikes! Be sure to introduce yourself if you see our crew shopping the Junk Bonanza on Thursday. We would love to meet you. Also, we appreciate your link to our website on your blog.

I've been reading all the blogs out there regarding the Junk Bonanza and wished I could have been there. I've been with the junk site since July 2007 and find it quite inspiring. Looks like a good time was had by all.
