Getting Ready For a New Season Change With Junkin

Getting Ready For a New Season Change With Junkin!

As I woke this morning the sun was bright and felt much warmer, clear blue skies, light wind, roads had more traffic, snow is almost gone, and it is actually getting a little warmer out each day now. Old Man Winter was attempting to hang onto the reins, and make the winter season longer for us. Thank Goodness it is not working, and things are changing into spring. 

Along with this seasonal change comes a new season of junkin too! I know some areas have already started. Down south they are fortunate to have been having some fun with some special finds, going out hunting, etc. I envy them, and am getting antsy myself with wanting to do this too. I know some areas around us have also been doing some things, and are getting started with the season changes too. 

I cannot wait to get out and about, and to find some deals. Past couple of years I slowed down with shopping at thrift stores, yard sales, good wills, junking, and etc. I wanted to use what I had at home for inventory, organize things better, and to lower my inventory as well. It is not all gone, but it has gotten much better for me to be anxious to get out there, and go digging again! Vintage collectibles, look for items to repurpose, items to upcycle with, and find some lovelies to reuse too.

I have decided that this year I would like to make a list of things I would like to look for, and find. Other years I always get sidetracked at sales, and I always come home with a load of things I shouldn't be buying, or didn't really need. You know that feeling too, right? At least with a list I would have more of a goal of what I want, need, and it definitely gives me some ideas of what to stick more of with too. So, what's on your list for this year?

Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams everyone! Glad to have you, and hope to see you again soon. See ya!


  1. I will be on the look out for old buttons and beads :) Great post :)

  2. Thanks for visiting Jennifer, and I wish you luck in finding those things too. Hmmm....I am seeing some possibilities with those items too. Old buttons I know I have in my craft room...can always use more of course. But, I am thinking I need to add some beads to my list. Never know what comes along that you can use those things.

    Good Luck to you Jennifer, and have a wonderful day!:)
