A Bunch of Junk

October already?! 

September was so busy, it seemed to fly by!

It brought the beginning of school. 

Yay! They were much more excited than I expected them to be on the first day.

Then they gave into reality. Yep, that's more what I expected.

September brought after school activities too. Hello crazy schedule!

It brought friends and family into town for several weekend visits.

The Husband's Mom was one of our weekend guests.
And then September brought more after school activities.

It brought a birthday celebration for this sweet boy. He's not technically mine, but I love him with a mama's heart, so that makes him officially one of mine too! 

Him and his sweet sister, I claim that girl with a mama's love too!

And September brought more after school activities. -sigh-

It brought a wedding for one of the Husband's cousins.

She looked so beautiful!

It was an outdoor wedding. It was a beautiful day!

The little flower girl was beautiful too!

Ahhh weddings! They're just so beautiful!!

And then September brought more after school activities. 
-oh my-

Then, just as September was coming to a close, just as I thought I had totally missed it, I received the email reminder! I hadn't missed it after all! There was still time! Junk Bonanza was here!! I could still make it! Whoop whoop!

Make it I did! The Husband even took the day off of work to go with me! He's the best!!

We were in junk heaven!


And doodads.

And whatnots!

And these guys!

So much junk, so little time!

Actually there was plenty of time. We even managed to stop for lunch in between our few purchases.

We bought this box, that I filled with things that I had on hand; silk flowers, a candle, feathers, mini pumpkins, and pieces of burlap, for $4.50. It's perfect for a Fall centerpiece.

We purchased a little glass carafe for $2.50.

All I can say is I broke my own "never buy anything because you think it's cute" rule when I bought it. 

But it's such a cute little container. 

Yep, totally broke that rule. 

But it's such a cute perfect olive oil dispenser. Uh huh, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!

And last, but not least, we purchased an old painting ladder for $35.00.

Yep, a ladder.

We, and by we I mean the Husband, sanded the rough edges with a pumice stone,

sprayed it with a clear coat,

and now it's the perfect place to store throw blankets in our living room!

It's silly, I know, but I'm a little giddy about the ladder.

Anyway, I'm glad I didn't miss Junk Bonanza! It was a good break. 

Now back to our regularly scheduled running for more after school activities!
