Junk Salvation

We know you are all wondering what "junk salvation"'s the same as our Funky Junk Sisters Vintage Flea Market but it's our touring version of it! Soon you will see our little vintage travel trailers on the road looking for our next junk stop...will it be your town? We have been busy getting our little babies ready for the ride! Here is Berneice with a sparklin new coat of white paint.
Today she'll earn,,,ur...get her stripe! (We'll post pics of that soon.) Berneice is outfitted with her Trav L Bar and the cutest little battery operated blender you ever did see. We have nicknamed her the "Travelin Martini Lounge"! She's almost ready to hit the road.
Monroe has a ways to go. She's been carefully gutted and she'll be new from the inside out. It will take a bit more time to get her ready...but you can never rush a woman of her quality!

When we're done with her she'll be as fabulous as her namesake. Just wait and see.

Make sure you "like" our new facebook fan page "Junk Salvation" it will give you all the details as they happen!
Oh, and remember...if it doesn't say Linda & Dixie behind it, it ain't the Funky Junk Sisters!!!

Pampering My Family

I posted this picture on facebook. This is what the parking lot outside my husband's office window looked like yesterday afternoon. It reminded me of a January day but it was actually June 15th! We were surprised with a huge hail storm. Only in Puyallup apparently...since people told me it was beautiful and sunny in Tacoma! Today's weather is a bit better but it is still on the cool side. I actually turned the heat on in the house and decided it was a good day to make something warm for my family to eat. It's just my hubby and I at home but our son, Jesse, works for the family business. I decided since it is June we should really be thinkin bout sunshine and picnics, not furnaces and hail storms! I made some cheddar broccoli soup and some freshly baked biscuits for my boys at the office. I wanted to deliver a hot meal to warm them up.

I pulled out my trusty picnic basket (I use it for everything) as the smell of the baking buscuits filled the house. My homemade surprise needed to be delivered in style...vintage style of course!

I'm off to pack the car up. I will let you know how they like it tomorrow!

Funky Junk Sister #1's Garden Tour

We have spent the last two weekends at Mom's place. She is a wonderful hostess. She has a fresh pot of coffee waiting each morning and prepares a bountiful breakfast for all of us. We sit at her table visiting, eating and planning out the day. The view from her dining room is of her lawn and's truly stunning. The hard work she puts into it pays off when she has visitors and she loves we are inviting you in, like one of the sisters for a tour of her garden. We just love this milk basket, we were with her when she found it. She added her magic to it with a mound of pansies.
"Robby the Rooster" greets you as you enter her front yard. Each year she changes it up a bit with her choice of flowers.

This oil can is a recent purchase from our latest Funky Junk Sisters Show. It looks fabulous hanging from a tree in her front yard.

Every where you turn she has another surprise, aka "junk" for your eyes to feast upon.

She uses this bed as a trellis for climbing vines.

This barn is her newest pride and joy. she's been dreamin on how it should be painted... what do you think?
We hope you enjoyed your tour of Mom's garden! Next time you are in Spokane give us a holler, we'll meet you over there and personnally walk the grounds with you. Mom will be happy to have a visitor and she'll make you a good ol' cup of joe!!
