The Junkin' Motherload!

Hey! I'ts Junkin' Monday....and yes - we found the Junkin' Motherload!
Serious Junkin', requires some serious methods of getting all of that stuff into your vehicle!


Last week we were on a mission - coming home.... THIS was what I saw out of the rear view mirror....




THIS is what we saw when we looked behind us




The back of the van {we held our breath as we shut THAT door!}




The side doors....





Yes...like a bunch of clowns...THIS is what we fit into the van!


Join our favorite Junkin' Sisters over at Cottage Charm & Family Inspiration for Junkin' Monday....they've got great ideas & will make you think twice, for things you just might walk by....!!

Hi Gals, looks like you had so much fun finding all this great stuff. Makes me think they need to invent some of those "space bags" for junkers. you know, where you stick it all in and then use a vacuum to suck out all the air so it "shrinks"! ha ha
love it all. have a great weekend!

You have to be kidding!!!!!!!! Don't tell us you embarrass your kids and husbands as much as we embarrass ours...We understand, girls...no worries!! That is a van full of fun projects, lots of painting and hopefully some $ to get more!!! Please don't forget to show us what you do with it and how you display it in the store! Love you both,
M & C

Holy Cow!!!! All that in a minivan!!! I'm amazed and in awe of your purchasing power. We have a standard sized GMC Savanna van and my Jim would be in shock if I tried to load up like that. You go girl!!

Lori said...

No,you are kidding me! I have a convertable Mustang that I call my pick up truck!! You win hands down. Glad you thought to capture the proof before you unpacked cuz no one would believe you! Now for the stuff...good eye...and you also can never go shopping with me! I will be watching to see what you do with all your treasures oh I forgot...your JUNK

Fun, fun! I'm curious to know where do you do your junk shopping? I confess my van has looked like this on more than one occasion! So you're in good company ladies. Thx for sharing your treasures.

Looks like you found a lot of things... was ther any room in the car?

Catherine said...

Wow! You know how to pack a van!

Thanks for the comment on the picture. My son took another one real quick a little more to the left and the edges match perfectly, like a panorama. Guess I`ll put that one up tomorrow. I think at the time he was still using a Kodak throw away cause they don`t take good cameras to fires.

Take care,
Cathy
