Well I must say I had a great time getting back into the junking mode this weekend and I probably won't miss anymore if I can help it from now until the cold weather keeps the vendors away. I will admit that I had to stop going to the flea market and rummage sales over the past month or so for the simple fact that we were running out of room for all of the things we were storing either to keep, sell, or repurpose. It had gotten so cluttered with bargains that we were losing track of what we'd bought. Due to working as a music director for several summer camps from June-August, I didn't have time during the week to sort and decorate with the things we'd found each weekend. Now that school has started back I actually have more free time than I had during the summer. I am a college instructor working a Tuesday/Thursday schedule this semester which gives me some time during the weeks to devote to my favorite hobbies. Luckily now everything is starting to get back to normal.

To be honest, I am a neat freak and as much as I wanted to get the Halloween decorating started, I just couldn't do it until the house was "ready." Now all the housework is caught up and the vintage Christmas decorations we bought this summer are organized and waiting for their time to shine once Thanksgiving is over (our laundry room was beginning to look like some sort of Christmas overstock warehouse). The house was getting far too disheveled for me, so I had to fight the overwhelming urge to go picking and use some discipline to do the right thing...so I disciplined myself right into organizing everything into enough room to justify another fun-filled weekend of treasure hunting. I am very glad I went, as I found some real goodies! I have some older pictures of previous finds too, so I think I'll just post them here as well since they are also "weekend finds."
