If you missed Part One of our junk haul, we travelled the World’s Largest Yard Sale this past weekend and scored quite the stash of rusty crusty goodness!! So much that we couldn’t fit it all in one picture!! So, here’s junk pile numerdo dos!!

And I’m gonna have to brainstorm on these for a while… I was thinking pendant lights, but they are very heavy with the film still on them. So then I was thinking about how I could upcycle the film itself. Any ideas???

All in all, we had another JUNKtastic trek down Highway 127… the World’s Longest Yard Sale!! I can’t believe all that we were able to stuff in our van!! Despite our efforts, there was ONE thing that wouldn’t fit! But it was just too good to leave behind! So, as we speak, we are travelling back to Kentucky to pick it up!! (Seven hours!!! Yeah, we’re nuts!!!) But if all goes well, we will have an AWESOME story to share with you later this week!!! Fingers crossed!!
