My mom.s garage sale went well despite a downpour on Saturday.
I spent today finishing the set up for this weekend's Junkstyle opening. I think you will be amazed at the selection and prices. Hope to see lots of you there.

I'm in Des Moines helping my mom with a garage sale. At the same time we are pricing items from her textile collection for next week's Treasured Textiles Junkstyle show in Elk Horn at the Annex.
As you can see, Lilith was a lot of help.

Our Eclectic Garden Junkstyle Show was a success. It was fun seeing so many of you.

We've been so busy sorting through my Mom's sewing room and I've moved lots of things to the Annex for our next sale Treasured Textiles Junkstyle.

Mom loves to make crazy quilts but she's not taking all of her supplies with her to Florida so there will be on abundance of silky tie fabrics and some velvets. She's also selling a lot of her stash at ridiculously low prices. I decided to clean out my vintage closet. I found quilt tops and lots of sets of blocks. I always favored pre 1900 things so I think if you have the same interest, you will love what I'm selling.

Of course we still have a lot of vintage furniture and decorative pieces. We're holding this sale the same weekend as the Walnut Antique Walk so you could attend both. We are only about 10 miles NE of Walnut and will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Hope to see you.

My sister, Jan ( has just released her newest pattern Cat Crazy. I love it!

Jan will be a part of our Eclectic Garden Junkstyle show May 23, 24 & 25 at the annex in Elk Horn. I have been busy working on displays. It's kind of fun playing store again.

Shar and I worked in the Annex yesterday. We're starting to get set up for our Eclectic Garden Junkstyle show (May 23, 24, 24). I cleaned out a small shed at the farm over the weekend and found a lot of the display pieces I used to have for the Prairie Christmas Boutique - quite interesting. I hope to convert the building to a potting shed someday soon.

Just playing around with some ideas for the Eclectic Garden Junkstyle show. this is really upcycling - the rug I cut up for the backgrounds was made from rags in the first place.
