SHadow Shot Sunday...Sister's Garden...

 Another gloomy, wintry day in Iowa...
as I try to squeeze a shadow from under Santa.

 Sister's Garden is the antique store that I
have been selling out of for 16 years...
Barb, the owner, and I have developed the best of 
friendships, through the hard times and the good,
WE HEART JUNK!

 Are ya green with envy TOT...
these old tractor lugs are just screaming
INDUSTRIAL!!!

 Vignettes are whassup at Sisters'...

 Around every corner there's Iowa found gems...

 and nothing goes to waste in our environment...
GOOD JUNK!!!



One day a week I take the 45 minute drive to 'Sisters',
as we all refer to it, truck loaded with goods and ready 
to play with my toys and my friends, it's an
idealistic life and I'll think I'll do it till I drop...K...
New beginnings at Hey, Harriet today,
as we welcome our new SSS hosts...
let's go there huh...!

Such an array of goodies and Chrissy sparkles! Stunningly beautiful!

If it helps at all, our world is grey and windy today too! We saw a little sun yesterday for a few hours, but not today!

Don't forget to link your post to our new Shadow Shot Sunday 2! We'd love to see you there!

Big Chrissy hugs dear sister + one for Scratchy!

I wouldn't call it 'junk' - it is a treasure, the functionality of an old tractor and her parts is to be treasure. The link to more honest farms and no large agribusiness farms. The look of the past ought to be preserved so we can remember a far different time...The interior furnishings were made to a far higher standard back then - happily on the items made of wood, steel wool, sandpaper and a fresh coat of paint means a life extended. Cool Iowa, shadows or not!

Good to see you here-I thought you said last week you were going to go on hiatus. Lucky for me you didn't! I am green with envy over all that good junk. Just know that if I were in driving distance, I'd be a regular at Sister's!

I love junk! I have no more room for anything, but I love what I do have, even though some is in storage! Sisters looks like a spot I could wander around in for an afternoon. The skies here are blue today, and the temps warm. No snow. This may be the first Christmas in years that isn't white. But I'm holding out hope for a miracle. Happy week to you Sharon!

Hi Sharon,
This morning, I decide to find your blog and see what's new!!! The last time I read, you had a poem about turning 50 and something different in your sidebar area.
Nice Shadow Shot of Santa.
I would love to live closer and browse or buy some of the antiques. I live in the Northeast. Our Christmas here will be sunny and cold, but without snow.
I have done just a couple Shadow Shot Sunday posts.
