Working Together...a couple of drawers and a sign...

You might remember these drawer shelves from another post...

They are hanging in my GREAT ROOM.

And I showed you this sign my friend Joan made that I bought this fall...
(See more of Joan's signs and pillows on here Signs of the Times Facebook page HERE.)

Well, I think I finally have the perfect spot for it.  What do you think?

And speaking of "working together"...

Joan and I share a booth at Antiques Downtown in Elk River, Minnesota.

I think we make a great team :)

And look who just "happened" to be looking over our huh??

We'll be sharing a booth again at the JunkMarket Style "Pamper Yourself" Trunk Show..

  18. This is sooooo cool, very creative and the sign is the topper! Met my husband 37 years ago in Elk River. Didn't know there was a place there now...probably a good thing, I'd come home with a car load and no dough! Really, got to check it out, it looks AMAZING! We just bought a big old home in Richfield and need lots of stuff and I'm not aware of any junk or thrift shops in the area...yet! Know of any?
