Father's Day Junkin!

I'm BOUNCING off the walls here, I'm FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST! I have tomorrow off of work and am heading to the cabin for Father's Day weekend!
Just about the best gift we can give my Dad is a day off without my Mom, sister and I bugging him... sad, but true~! Tomorrow he's dropping my Mom off (ALONG WITH THE VAN, JUST IN CASE WE MAKE A MAJOR HAUL), and we're heading north to go junking, and then meeting him back at the cabin Friday night. There's 2 awesome junk/antique sales in a small town called "Lindstrom" Minnesota. We're hitting the "Picket Fence" gals sale and "Flapper Jane's". They are only open on certain weekends, and vendors drag all of their wares outdoors on the lawn and it's a JUNK HEYDAY! YIPPIEE! I decided I'd take you guys along junking with us this weekend. I'm revving up my camera, and will take photos of the fun junk we see, so you can share in the madness when I get back on Sunday!
I also have some more stuff to show you when I get back, I have another idea for the little crafty outfits in the works but need to put the finishing touches on it this weekend. And I got a package from Crafty Secrets with the "Coffee and Tea" set in it, so I'm REVVED UP to stamp some hairspray chickies for you guys!
DOES IT GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS????!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!! OH OH! YES IT DOES, I HAVE $100 SCHMACK in my hot little hands to spend this weekend, from doing a focus group tonite on coffee. I LOVE THAT MY SCHEDULE HAS SLOWED DOWN AND I HAVE TIME TO STAAAAAAMP!!!!!!!!!!!
OK, OK, I'M CALMING DOWN NOW. The card above is going to my poor Dad this weekend, who will probably get stuck hauling crap out of the van for us, or making fixes to any 'less than perfect' bargains that we come back with. Oh, and the card will accompany a new CHAINSAW! Heh heh. (He wanted to borrow mine but I said no way. ) *giggle*
OH OH OH! One more thing! Next week there will be blog candy given away here, courtesy of Sandy at Crafty Secrets! I CAN'T WAIT!

Sounds like you have a fun few days planned. Enjoy yourself! I've never been junkin'. I would love too though. I really would love to find an old bathtub to put in my back yard and fill with dirt and flowers.
Cool card! I bet your Dad will love it.
Well, have a great time!
