junk finds and junk poem
Found this fabulous box of song sheets for $6 on my summer junkin' trails (exits I make my husband veer off on...lol...). some are so pretty I want to frame, others I can use for my art and swaps :)! I love junking!
A Poem for my fellow junkin' queens!*
ON THE JUNKIN' TRAIL
BY LIA K.
I love to hunt for treasures
because it's so much fun
I try to ignore my husbands pleas
when I hear, "it's time to go hun!"
I love seeing those big ole billboards
Honey, "Antiques 1 mile ahead!"
my husband rolls his eyes and pretends
he didn't hear what I just said...
But sometimes I get my way
And lure him off the road
He insists on following me inside
To remind me there's "no room to load"
Before he finishes I've left him behind
playing "hide and go seek" in my mind...
I find lots of little nooks and such
with ephemera and photos in mind
Knowing that regular stores
don't offer anything in this kind
I like to rescue what people don't want
and make into something good
I know the people that were left behind
once did that when they could
The vases, jewelry and books bring me back
the nostalgia overwhelms me
as I overfill my sack
"Oh there you are" my husband chides
I can't believe I'm found
But the more I try to leave the past
the closer I am bound.
