It's that time of year again!
The Endless Yard Sale 2009 takes place this weekend, August 6th through the 9th.
It stretches all the way from Gadsden, Alabama to West Unity, Ohio. A total of 654 miles to be exact.
Sarah and I will probably leave Friday or Saturday morning, and meet up with Rhoda in Birmingham on our way to Gadsden. She said she'd join us for part of the trip, but plans to turn around and head back to B'ham before dark. I don't know where Sarah and I will stay on Friday or Saturday night, but hopefully we can find a peaceful place to rest our undoubtedly over-stimulated heads somewhere along the route.
HGTV was seeking teams of two for their yearly episode of the Endless Yard Sale, but I think I sent in our submission too late. (I just heard about the casting call 2 weeks ago) So we thought we'd take my video camera along and film our own little "endless adventure", which of course I'll post here once we get back. :-)
I'm very excited about this trip. If you're familiar with my blog you already know that I'm quite the junkie.
And by "junkie" I mean that I'm literally obsessed with peeking into peoples drawers.
Uh...that totally came out wrong.
These kinds of drawers!
And speaking of old dressers, I found these vintage, ceramic napkin rings on top of one while junkin' recently...
I love their big, bubbly hats, and tiny, clasped hands. So sweet!
I sent them to my friend, Kim, at the Daisy Cottage. They reminded me of the colorful palette in her fantastically whimsical home.
Sarah and I are so excited to take our road trip, and see what we can find for the flea market finds section of LetteredCottageHome.com. Wish us luck!
In other news, I've already created my "Grocery Store/White Room" design for the White Room Challenge that the Design Star contestants will be tackling tomorrow. I'll post it after the show airs. If you're not busy, and would care to join me for the show, I'll be on Twitter, tweeting my little heart out on each commercial break tomorrow night.Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
