These gifts are "junk!"

 Hello, friends! Last weekend my girlfriends Kelley, Kim and Jodi did some antique shopping on Saturday. I couldn't make it due to Jack's basketball schedule. But, being the sweet friends that they are....they brought back a few special surprises for me! There is definitely a rooster theme. These sweet cloth napkins are from Kelley. Aren't they so cute? I would really like to turn them into sachets. I might need a bloggy friend to send me a pattern. I have limited sewing skills!

These Easter postcards both have a rooster on them! These came from Kim. I'm sure she had to dig for these. Thank you, Kim.  I love them.  Anyone want a scan? I'd be happy to post or email.
I just love the colors in this old potato sack! Jodi found this. It is huge! I'd love to have some pillows made from it. It will definitely need some backing. We'll see. Hey, could someone let Golden Boy Potatoes know that a Rooster would have been a much better choice for a mascot.  I hope you are having a great week.  I'm headed to Renningers this Saturday for some junk! Can't wait to share. Still trying to decide on something special for my 500 follower giveaway. I'll be looking this weekend.  Linking up to these inspirational parties -
